The Beeb ran a story highlighting the increase of private security firms in Lebanon.

The report claims the country’s instability caused since the 2005 assassinations, bombings & mass protests has led to MP’s, Businessman, celebrities paying for their services. Another factor also mentioned is the general perception that Syria have pulled all their troops from the country leaving vulnerable or exposed. This obviously is a lazy conclusion you only have to read Lebanon’s Daily Star to find Syria has not quite left this particular arena, certainly their intelligence arm is still operating at high levels. But  is the BBC somehow suggesting life was perhaps better off with the Syrians there? and now with them go anarchy reins.. oh dear oh dear. Can somebody  re-train these monkeys who report for them ?

I m pretty sure it’s all a fad and fashion necessity for the élite of Beirut. I’ve spent enough time with them over here in London  and Europe to realize the Lebanese are very materialistic in the extreme and hate to miss out on something, but hey how should I know when the Beeb refuses to believe the obvious and paint a picture of calm Lebanon when the Syrians are in control.

If nothing else, at least the Lebanese will have a little hint of what Israelis and Jews have to suffer daily when going about their business., as security is indeed paramount. t

The real story of the day is not Abu Mazen’s deliberate ploy to start a Third Intifadeh but Hezbollah’s failure to deal with its own insurrection. It seems Arab countries are not the only “Entities” (as they loving say about the Zionist one) in trouble…

According to Asharq Alawsat, 5 senior Hezbollah agents have been charged for spying for the Israelis and one of which escaped! Whatever the truth judging by Al Manar’s quick reply on their site suggests they are worried and seems to have suggestion of truth. What price Nasrallah remaining in power next year I wonder…?
