Since we’ve failed so far to do it with politics and security, how about we try to do it for real? I would even push it further into the sea.
Abdul Karim was one of the two General Security officers who intercepted the suicide bomber’s car going the wrong way yesterday. Abdul Karim stayed with the driver while the other GS officer went to inform the nearest army checkpoint. That’s when the blast took place and killed both the suicide bomber and Abdul Karim.
This man helped prevent a disaster because the car was headed towards a crowded cafe and could have killed tens if not hundreds. He’s one of many security officers who died trying to save lives in the past year.
It’s good to hear some Lebanese are actively contributing to ending human trafficking and are being recognized for their efforts. Congrats to Elisabeth!

Mabrouk and Go Germany!
It shouldn’t be so hard for the police to spot and stop this car. After all, aside from not having any plate number, he definitely didn’t pass the “Mecanique” if he ever went there.
Updates: One of the people who commented, is saying he is the lady’s son and the developer didn’t offer anything or even show up. On the other hand, Prad is saying the contractor had warned the woman prior to demolishing the building next to hers and had signed an agreement with her two months ago to terminate her rental agreement.
Given these two versions, it would be nice if LBCI, MTV, FTV or any local TV investigates this issue further and let us know what really happened because such an issue is more important than Jägermeister Demonic Worshippers.
However, whether the developer damaged the house intentionally or not, the woman was fortunate enough not to be in the house when the walls were taken down and this is a serious mistake that cannot be ignored just like that. I say the developer should be heavily fined, forced to fix the lady’s house and have his project suspended until further notice.
I am not sure if this is a stunt or not but I thought it was fun. If it’s a stunt to advertise for some yoga or meditation classes, she chose the perfect spot as all the drivers go crazy at this intersection.
