Tweet Your Complaints To The Lebanese ISF #مش_عالرسمي

ISF

The Lebanese ISF is opening up to the Lebanese people and asking them to tweet their complaints and questions. The complaints don’t have to be formal ones and you can write in whichever way you like. I’ve followed up on some of the tweets and their replies seem to be fair and balanced so give it a try if you have something you wish to complain or inquire about.

They already promised to investigate the picture that I posted earlier today of a woman tanning on top of a car.

It appears that they’ve done so in solidarity with the Iraqi Christians of Mossul. They also had an interview with an Iraqi Sunni journalist Muslim called Dalia al-Aqidi who decided to wear a cross around her neck in solidarity with her country’s Christian minority.

To be honest, I’d expect Tele Lumiere to do so instead of LBCI but it’s a nice initiative nevertheless.

La Maison de la Forêt In Bkassine

Has anyone been to La Maison de la Foret? It looks really nice and the prices are quite reasonable. There are cottages, tents and a nice restaurant but it’s definitly not just 1 hour drive from Beirut! You easily need an hour and a half to get to Bkassine but it’s a very good road.

So there are two places that I want to visit in Jezzine now, Pinea Campus and La Maison De La Foret.

Filled with the culture of the South, La Maison de la Forêt is the coming together of outdoor activities, rustic accommodations, camping sites, family getaways, childhood memories, the warm smell of morning coffee, donkeys rides and trails, the unexpected enchantment with the silence of nature, and all the bright skies and chilly starry nights in between.

All the houses are made of wood, all the greetings are made of the warmth of the community and all the products are made of the goodness of the southern soil. The many passageways and the main activities on site are welcoming, safe and secure for any physical disability.

Only one hour away from the capital city, Beirut, La Maison de la Forêt is the sweetest escape away from the urban hustle and bustle. [LaMaisonDeLaForet]

Footage of Pointure Antelias Robbery

The report says the thief tried for almost one hour to break the glass and go in and the owner is saying the police should be doing an extra effort in patrolling the streets but I have to ask here:

- How come no alarm went off as he was tried to break the front door?
- How can the police catch thieves without any alarm or alert sounds?

I think the best way is to have more police patrolling the streets and enhancing the alarm systems of all shops and linking them to the police station.
