Update: Add to that 21th. Thanks Hany!
I think this article is offensive, over-generalizing and pointless. [Article]
For a largely Arab country it’s a bizarre thing that in Lebanon (Beirut specifically), women care more about their appearance than men. Males lead a rather sullied existence, priming their closely cut mini-beards and, from my own observations, eating rather a lot. The formula in Lebanon’s capital for women is fashion-forward, from their choice of cloth to the decisions they make surgically. [Link]
Lebanonfiles.com’s article shown above is about Buckingham palace seeking a driver. What does German Football player Miroslav Klose’s picture have to do with that? Weird.
French Figari mentioned few minutes ago that an Air France plane changed its course from Beirut to Amman due to the blocking of the airport road and the unrest in Lebanon. That’s just great!
Un vol Air France parti de Paris en direction de Beyrouth a Ã©tÃ© dÃ©routÃ© vers Amman ce soir en raison de la situation au Liban. “Par prÃ©caution, Air France a dÃ©routÃ© le vol sur Amman car les conditions de sÃ©curitÃ© ne sont pas entiÃ¨res Ã Beyrouth”, notamment sur la route de l’aÃ©roport, a indiquÃ© Ã l’AFP une porte-parole de la compagnie aÃ©rienne.
Selon une source aÃ©roportuaire Ã Beyrouth, “la direction d’Air France Ã Paris a pris cette dÃ©cision aprÃ¨s avoir reÃ§u des informations selon laquelle la route de l’aÃ©roport est bloquÃ©e par des manifestations”. Des manifestants chiites ont bloquÃ© la route de l’aÃ©roport en brÃ»lant des pneus. [Figaro]
Update: The plane had to land in Damascus apparently because it was running out of fuel. With everything that’s going on in Beirut, it’s safer to land here than in Syria that’s for sure! Thanks Sarah

I don’t need to say more honestly, it’s a freaking amazing movie! Go watch it as soon as you can!
Now you might ask me how I got tickets a day ahead of the release date, well it wasn’t an invite nor a gift nor did I need a special “wasta” to get an “avant-premiere” ticket. What happened is that my brother’s friend just called CinemaCity and booked tickets for Wednesday and we just went. That doesn’t make any sense to be honest but that’s how I got my ticket and the theater was half-empty probably because no one knew about this session.
My question is why didn’t they launch the movie on Wednesday if everyone could have come to see it?
Al-Meqdad family announced on Wednesday that its military wing has so far kidnapped more than 20 Free Syrian Army members in Lebanon and promised a â€œhefty catch.â€ It later said that it had abducted near Beirut a Turkish national of the Soufan family, media reports stated. [Naharnet]
I am considering starting my own military wing and abducting pop star Lara Kays. I am sure people will pay millions of dollars to free her.

It is time to set standards for puppy mills in Lebanon and support Animals Lebanon’s campaign to enact national animal protection and welfare legislation. Help BETA Lebanon achieve these goals by signing their petitions [Here] and [Here].
Thank you Hala
I got this message from Alfa while having lunch in a nearby village (KawlabÃ© If I am not mistaken) to Kobayat (Akkar) during the weekend.
Noting that I was still inside Lebanese soil, how is that possible?
