Ziad Rabani to appear on Al Mayadeen TV

According to this article in Al-Akhbar, Ziad Rahbani is making an appearance on Al Mayadeen TV tomorrow night with Ghassan Ben Jeddo to express his opinion about the Arab Spring, talk about Assi El Rahbani and Fayrouz, and finally announce a surprise to his fans.

I personally don’t care about his political opinion, I just hope he’ll be announcing a concert/play anytime soon!

Anyway, if you’re a fan of Ziad, make sure to mark your calendar tomorrow at 9:30PM.

Al-Mourabitoun believe Angelina Jolie is a CIA agent!

Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie is actually a CIA agent disguised a UNHCR goodwill ambassador! That’s what actually Al-Mourabitoun, which is headed by Mustafa Hamdan, think. And if you don’t believe it you can check this piece of news!

Apparently Al-Mourabitoun have only known Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft!

Angelina Jolie in Lebanon

You probably have heard about Angelina Jolie’s visit to Jordan yesterday to meet with the Syrian refugees who are currently living on Jordan-Syria border in order to help focus international attention on them and possibly attract more funding to help them (more here). It turned out that her plans also include visiting the refugees in Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq during the rest of her trip to the region.

Unfortunately no photos/videos have yet surfaced of her visit to the refugees here. The below 2 photos however are of Jolie at the Grand Serail in Beirut as she was addressing the journalists.

Thanks to both of @maytham11 & @ivysblog

Update:

At the Grand Serail.

And here are some photos of her with the refugees in Bekaa.

Mabrouk Lebanon!

So we did it and defeated Iran tonight!!

Lebanon stunned Iran 1-0 today to claim their first ever win against the regional giants and raise hopes of gaining a shock 2014 FIFA World Cup™ berth.

China-based midfielder Roda Antar headed home a free-kick on 28 minutes for Lebanon’s famous victory, in front of their home fans in Beirut, which lifted them off the bottom of Group A. Source

After playing 4 games we now have 4 points which is as much as Iran and Qatar have, except that they have played 3 games so far and therefore have one game in hand. You can check the standings here.

Our team still has 4 more games remaining with the next one being against Qatar on November 14th.

No fire arms sign in Dekweneh

Looks like someone who’s disgusted of the armed clashes around the country (just like the majority of us) is putting up “No fire arms” signs around Dekweneh, but it seems like the municipal police there is unsurprisingly taking them down.

I believe there should be more of these signs nowadays in Tripoli and Al-Mikdad street in Dahyeh!
