This picture is taken from the Cedars’ ski slope. According to a friend and an email I received, Father Hani Tawk, who’s a good skier, saw that everyone was going skiing on Sundays instead of attending the mass, so he decided to hold the mass on top of the Cedars ski slopes.
He built the altar using two pairs of skis, a snowboard and 2 ski sticks.
The yellow traffic light usually means slowing down before the light turns red, however in Lebanon it takes a whole different aspect. Whenever Lebanese drivers see the yellow light, they feel like it’s the end of the world and step on the gas and take out everything in their way!
Whether there’s traffic ahead or not does not concern them. They will step on it, cut you off, yell at you and the policeman and block the road if needed. Just watch the video and you will see for yourselves.
Lebanese singer Fairuz and actress/director Nadine Labaki featured in the top 15 of the 100 most powerful Arab women of 2012. Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, the UAEâ€™s Minister of Foreign, has topped the list, with Yemeni Nobel Peace Prize laureate Tawakkul Karman in second place. [Full List]

[Only Picture I found of Marwan Charbel wearing a coat]
President Sleiman was on a visit to Romania this week and Interior Minister Marwan Charbel, who was with him, had his coat stolen twice.
The first theft took place during a dinner thrown in Suleimanâ€™s honor by his Romanian counterpart Traian Basescu. The minister had handed his coat over to the coat check upon his arrival to the dinner, but when it was time to leave, the garment was not found. Officials of the Romanian presidential palace were quick to inform Basescu of the incident, who promptly presented the interior minister with a new one.
Charbel was robbed yet again during another dinner, with Basescuâ€™s coat being the new victim.
He was granted a third coat on the last day. It would be interesting to know what brand that coat was.
