xawaaTir blog

A good friend of mine, Ali, has started posted regularly in his blog, xawaaTir, about current events in Lebanon (his home country). For those interested in a different perspective on the current Israeli attacks on Lebanon (different from the one you will get from CNN, that is), it might be an interesting read.

I was reading Ali’s latest post, and I was reminded of all those surprised Americans we saw on TV on the days after 911. They stared wide-eyed into the camera and wondered “Why would someone want to hurt us?” I suppose if they read more posts like some of Ali’s, they would understand why. Not that Ali advocates physical aggression in any way. Not that physical aggression is ever justified.

As I said, an interesting read. xawaaTir
