I had totally forgotten about this picture until a friend was telling me about how she had a dream the other day that the whole Jounieh coast and sea were invaded by the Israeli Army. I remembered this picture I’d taken back in March 2012 when I woke up and saw a big carrier in the middle of the sea with small army boats around it and helicopters in the air. At first glance, I thought it was some UNIFIL naval unit but then I gave it a closer look and didn’t find any non-Lebanese flags on it so it could be ours.
More maritime maneuvers were performed on July 15 2012 with French naval forces in the presence of â€œJean Bartâ€ frigate shown below. I will post some pictures if I find any.
I spotted this beautifully renovated old Lebanese house in Antelias in the street that has all the restaurants/pubs/Shisha places. The house is next to Pinocchio Restaurant and facing Public and Kahwit el Sitt. I am presuming it will be yet another restaurant, or maybe a pub just like Carlitto’s.
It could also be someone’s residence but I don’t think anyone would want to live on this street.
Magna Steyr Torino, RUF Automobile Germany and STUDIOTORINO were among W Motors partners present at the lavish launch event they held at Sursock Palace Beirut a while ago. Those names are enough for you to realize the Arab super car will have an Italian design and German engineering. That is the best combination possible.
Come to think of it, thatâ€™s how Pagani started with the Zonda. The difference is, Pagani factory was never under threat of being bombed by Israel! [MotorWard]
The Olympics are two days away now and there’s a whole page dedicated to Lebanon, its history in the Olympics and its athletes. Check it out [Here].
I hope our athletes won’t be forced to withdraw from any competition involving an Israeli athlete. Even Iran, the most hardcore anti-Israeli country, has allowed its athletes to compete against Israelis. [Link]
AlloFail started in June 2012 in Lebanon by a group of non-sectarian and politically independent Lebanese individuals, which includes a lawyer, a telecommunication engineer and Lebanese PR experts in a bid to exert pressure on the mobile operators to provide better products and services by listening to and acting upon customer complaints.

I am not sure how much of a difference this initiative will make but it’s worth giving it a try for sure.

As stated by Annahar today, the video above is not a prank and Ward Al Khal has decided to file a lawsuit against those who prepared the whole thing and posted it online in an attempt to tarnish her image. [Annahar]
Having said all that, I wonder what took her so long to make a statement and denounce the incident?
