Hi Leila,

I am one of your second cousins who has never met you, but would sure love to. I am Nouhad's (your father's niece) daughter, Sophie. Leila, please contact me at my email address as I don't have your email address. I met your father for the first time in 2004 and he gave me your email address and asked me to contact you..well I never did and now I would like to get to know you. If you have time, I would love to hear from you, Leila.

I admit that I have only the foggiest understanding of what's going on in Lebanon at the moment, but I do note that the Seymour Hersh article you link to mentions al-Qaeda repeatedly with regard to Sunni extremists in Lebanon. Ironically Hersh also mentions Saad Hariri, son of the late Refik Hariri, whose assassination has so outraged the West. Thanks for the thought-provoking link. I liked the article but feel even more bewildered than before!

Alison - I no longer pretend to understand what's going on. HOwever it looks to me like the Lebanese Army feels free to massacre Palestinians, so long as they can say they are "rubbing out terrorists."

It's the same old story. I scream pretty loudly when Israel does it - bombs a civilian area to "exterminate terrorists." When I wake up from my depression I will write a post denouncing Lebanon's actions.

In the meantime, read the Angry Arab for more info. He rants but he does post informative links.
