This is how our Ministry of Tourism commercials should look like. Thumbs up to Wissam on this awesome video!

I was just reading on Rami’s blog the small note the paper had left to thank one of their reporters for failing to do his job properly and I remembered a month back the letter Addiyar’s Editor in Chief Charles Ayoub wrote to Syrian President Bashar el Assad begging him for $700,000 and admitting he lost all his money to gambling.
He deleted the letter from his page but I found it somewhere else. You can check it out [Here]. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything more humiliating and unprofessional and I am wondering whether any actions should be taken against the paper to close it down. Aren’t there any rules or guidelines to operate a newspaper in Lebanon? Shouldn’t there be a minimum level of credibility and integrity?
I don’t know much about window cleaning but this doesn’t look safe at all. There should be at least another safety rope in case the first one detaches and they should be wearing a helmet.

I thought it was funny that they include Bassil in this question but the show “Enta wou Hazzak” should be more fun and less politics in my opinion, specially that it’s a Ramadan show.
PS: The joke started with Bassil then became an electoral campaign with one of the guests.
British Ambassador to Lebanon Tom Fletcher tweeted these two pictures of the badges and Meghlé that will be given out in Lebanon on the occasion of the Royal Baby’s Birth.
Prince William and Duchess Kate’s first baby, a future monarch, was born today at 4:24 pm local time in London’s private wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, the palace announced. The announcement said the baby weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces, and William was present for the birth.
This is not enough but definitely a step in the right direction. I wonder though if this vote is legal considering that the parliament’s term has expired over a week ago.
The joint parliamentary committees approved on Monday a draft-law on the protection of women from domestic violence, a major step towards helping women become first-class citizens in multi-confessional Lebanon.
If passed by parliament, the law would come under the penal code — under which cases are referred to a criminal court — rather than personal status laws, which are ruled on by religious authorities. [Naharnet]
Awesome sounds! This looks like a Need For Speed track.
The above footage shown by Al-Jadeed is supposed to show how Al-Assir was the one who shot first at the army but I honestly don’t see how they made such an assumption based on this footage. Don’t get me wrong, I am convinced Assir and his buddies are criminals that should be arrested and jailed not just for attacking the army but for having weapons in the first place, but this video, specially the title, is misleading and proves nothing.
If anything, it undermines the earlier report submitted by the Lebanese Army and the Ministry of Defense (See Video Below). In Al-Jadeed footage, the gunshots came from an unknown source far from Assir and the army while in the video below, Al-Assir is the one who started firing at the army.
Update: Here’s another footage taken from Bank Audi’s Camera. It still contradicts with the story shown in the LBC report above.
