Isn’t it time for your action?

Zionist massacres in Gaza & Beit Hanoun are still going on; the total number of Martyrs in the last 7 days is over 70! Do you still need any more proofs that “Israeli IS a Terrorist State lead by ELECTED Terrorist“? Isn’t it time for your action? "via sabbah"

And do not forget:

بلا ولا شي... شكراً زياد

غناء سامي حواط ، ألحان زياد الرحباني ، من ألبوم هدوء نسبي عام 1991
بلا ولا شي . .بحبك، بلا ولا شي، ولا في بهالحب مصاري، ولا ممكن في ليرات، ولا ممكن في أراضي، ولا في مجوهرات، تعي نقعد بالفيّ، مش لحدا هالفيّ، حِبّيني وفكّري شوي
بلا ولا شي . .،وحدك، بلا ولا شي، بلا كل أنواع تيابك، بلا كل شي فيه تزيين، بلا كل أصحابي صحابك، السّقلى والمهضومين، تعي نقعد بالفيّ، مش لحدا هالفيّ، حِبّيني وفكّري شوي
بلا جوقة إمّك ، بيّك، ورموش وماسكارا، بلا ما النسوان تحيّك، بلا كل هالمسخرا، تعي نقعد بالفيّ، مش لحدا هالفيّ، حِبّيني وفكّري شوي

Blogging from Beirut

Stuff to share ...
This time my trip to Beirut is different, you can feel people's sadness... inshAalla they will get over everything, and they will stand again no matter what! Let me share these stuff that I found here:

Bloody establishment!
I found this poster in most of the streets; I really liked its concept (not the artwork). I translated the Arabic words.

Nafas Beirut
A very nice and simple exhibition, presented by Espace SD and xanadu. Nafas Beirut is a platform for artists, poets, writers and filmmakers to share their work produced during or in reaction to the Israeli siege of Lebanon of Summer 2006. It will stay until November 17th, 2006. Check out these black comedy caricatures.

She beras she bala ras
شي براس شي بلا راس
This is an awesome postcards booklet that I got from the art shop at Espace SD. Based on "head", the Lebanese designer debOrah Phares created all those hilarious ideas and made me laugh like crazy :-) here is some samples.

Stop it, Change it!
UNunited colors of AUB is a sarcastic & sad figure that shows the sectarianism in Lebanon (here, it shows the American University of Beirut as one of the examples). I got this paper from an Italian journalist, he was shocked and disappointed … Lebanon, I beg you to stop all these things and pay attention to your beautiful land and future… you're the dream.

A mural that I found in Barometer, a restaurant & pub at Bliss. Nice poem :-)

My Book-light clip
It's out of this post :-) and it's not Lebanese... it's my book-light clip that I got from Zone, Solidaire, it's so nice and practical, it's now the only light I see on my books before I sleep, isn't it cute :-)
