More Lebanon Stuff - Jul 16

Went to Mosport today to watch the bikes fly 'round the track. Had lots of fun but dammit, it was hot! Try 35C WITH the bloody humidex added on. It's been a busy weekend for me and there is much going on in this world. Mostly bad news I'm afraid. Like I said earlier, this is not it. It just looks like it. Put your faith in God, not man. Jesus Christ IS coming back. So look busy!

As a result of the Israeli military actions, Seven Lebanese-Canadians are no longer with us. There are many Lebanese living in and around the GTA and Southern Ontario who have family back in the old country. Please pray for these people. I'm afraid it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

New World Odor (no, that's not a typo) Alert: As a result of all this nastiness in the ME, the high muckity-mucks of this world have come up with a clever idea. Let's hand everything over to the UN! Gosh, that's bloody brilliant! I mean WOW! Surely the AntiChrist is alive and well today, just waiting in the wings. The Law of Unintended Consequence? Fuhggeddaboutit.

Honest Reporting wades into public opinion and gives us the Israeli point of view. Hey, if you don't like what they are saying or have a problem with their facts, then contact them. That's what freedom of expression is all about. I'm just putting it out there because there seems to be a mountain of misinformation and misdirection going around over this.

Meanwhile in China, Tropical Storm Bilis is creating all sorts of havoc with over a hundred dead so far.

I have three blogs that I've discovered today that I wish to share with you. Y'know there is a lot of lies out there as it concerns Middle Eastern people. Many have this idea that they are all a bunch of cut-throats and fanatics, which is far from the truth. It just goes to show that Islam has not completely crushed the human spirit. It is the human spirit, given to us by our Creator, that says, "Screw you. I'm gonna live despite all this".

Here's a male blogger calling himself 'Herlock Sholmes' who lives in the United Arab Emirates. God, this guy is FUNNY! Not for the faint of heart or easily offended though. Also contains some profanity but it is so honest and 'out there' that you find yourself quickly and easily forgiving such indiscretions.

One from a female blogger from Egypt. She's a Muslim, but does not appear to be 'over-the-top' fanatic. Loves her Mom and is a patriot of her country. Some Arabic, but mostly English.

This is another female blogger called 'Ramblin Hal' who is more strident in her views as an Arab and as a Muslim. Like I said, it's always good to know what it's like to live on the other side of the fence. Whether you agree or disagree with her is not the main point here. I'm trying to understand and to show the human side of all this suffering that's going on over there.

See, isn't blogging fun? Find new and interesting people without ever leaving the house. God Bless the internet!
