Update: More Lebanon bloggers here.

UrShalim reports: "These photos of the bombing of Haret Hureik from sea (war ships). I just took They are less than a km away. They are from my kitchen's window. The sound was terrible.

An acquaintance died last night. He drove his family to safety and went back to get something from his house. A bridge was targeted (picture below). He was killed. I just knew."


Voting for Killing

"Check this poll at CNN asking whether Israel is justified in her military response inside Lebanon.Up till the moment that I voted NO it was 60% yes. I can only imagine who the majority of the voters are.Maya at About Lebanon proposes that we send this letter to world leaders to urge them to interfere and stop the war. "

God help us all.

The contact links to the world leaders are at the site linked below. If you live in the U.S., be sure to email someone besides the idiot-in-chief:

Letter from Friends and Citizens of Lebanon:

Dear World Leaders,

This letter is a plea from the Lebanese people, and friends of Lebanon. We urge you to exercise any political influence you may have to guide a cease fire between Israel and Hezbollah. Negotiations must take place. The violence that has escalated in Lebanon has gotten out of control, it is insanity! The people of Lebanon are suffering; the Lebanese economy will suffer deeply for years to come. As I am sure you know anger, resentment, and poverty can only lead to further extremism. For the welfare of Lebanese citizens, Israeli citizens, the stability of the Middle East, and indeed the world, we implore you to take action as soon as possible to prevent further violence, destruction, and casualties.
