Lebanon stands out – once more

28Nov07

A Muslim woman is allowed to fight back in self-defense if she is hit by her husband, Lebanon’s top Shiite cleric declared Tuesday in a ruling rare for the region’s male-dominated Islamic society. AFP

Elsewhere, Annapolis claimed to be slightly more of what this blogger envisioned for Palestinians, but Lebanon’s major problem in the Arab-Israel conflict is the Palestinian refugees that have been guests in Lebanon, since Israel brushed the Palestinians out of their land in 1948.Gemayzeh Lebanon - Character

In other news, Lebanon’s top seat is still vacant, with hints of a temporary position for the neutral army general Michel Sleiman taking office. A Presidential vote is scheduled for Friday. (or Saturday, or Sunday).

Among the new clowns arming themselves in Lebanon; We hear new names, (just like Fatah al-Islam), is today’s clash in Tripoly (North Lebanon), by the so-called Tripoli brigades, the newly armed branch of the Future movement, got involved in an armed conflict with At-Tawhid, labelled as pro-Syrian. The clashes left one Lebanese dead.

While the debate between the Opposition and the Government is sill running high with the Hezbollah’s arms dossier topping the agenda, other Lebanese factions are arming themselves, to fight other Lebanese.

    Now the clerics have a say in Criminal Law! I thought that in Lebanon, only Civil Status is controlled by the religious courts. Hopefully one day, there will be a drastic separation of religion & state! I am fed up from those clerics & preasts who think they know all & have a say in everything.
