Apparently there’s some guy roaming around the Mar Mikhail street sexually harassing women at night. As recommended by the poster, always have someone walk or drive you home not just in Mar Mikhail but almost everywhere you go these days.
“It was Friday night and I just finished work. It was 2:30 a.m. and I was walking home, which is in Geitawi…As I was going up the Armenian stairs, a guy stopped in front of me and asked me where Gemmayze was. I pointed him out in the right direction. He then asked me, ‘Where are you going?’ At this point, I decided I wasn’t going to speak to him [and kept going up the stairs.] He was walking along side, muttering to himself. Then he cut me off at the top of the stairs and asked, ‘Sex?’ and mimed a blow job, before undoing his pants. So I backed away and started screaming at him, saying, ‘Haram, khalas, and get away from me.’ After that he ran down the stairs.”
She said no one came to her aid after she started screaming.
She also told NOW that “I didn’t want to go to the police; they won’t do anything. But I wanted people to know about this and I wanted the guy to be caught. [Link]”
WikiLeaks website has revealed that Israeli intelligence, Mossad, may have been involved in the 2010 Ethiopian plane crash off Beirut’s shore, said various media reports on Sunday. They said that the plane have been the victim of sabotage by Israeli intelligence because it mistakenly suspected that senior Hizbullah official Hashem Safieddine may have been on the flight. [Naharnet]
The verdict that was published two years ago was vague and blamed the Ethiopians for the crash. [Link]
The reason I remember that now is that I was reading an article published in Al Balad newspaper few days ago on that matter where they are trying to justify what Najwa Karam said and explaining that it wasn’t that wrong.
I am glad they fired her. It was an irresponsible answer.
He told the host “I hope your questions are not as hot as you are”. What’s so wrong about that? Why is LBCI and most of the Arab websites calling it a scandal or even worse a sexual harrasment? Ma badda hal2ad!
Rina Chibani was crowned Miss Lebanon tonight and her twin sister Romy was the first runner-up. I saw parts of it and couldn’t help wondering the following:
1- I love and respect Maxime Chaaya but what did they choose him to be on a beauty pageant jury?
2- Why are LBC giving so much importance to Facebook and Twitter in the interview? What does having a Facebook or Twitter account have to do with being Miss Lebanon?
3- How fair is it to let two sisters compete? That’s just weird.
4- Why is an 8-month pregnant lady presenting the show? Why take this risk?
Also, I was reading Rina’s Q&A and I noticed this answer:
Q: What would you change about yourself and why?
A: If I could change something about myself it would be my sensibility.
How exactly do you change your sensibility?
Nevertheless, Rina seems like a good choice. Check out the other contestants [Here].
