    "Top blog/Renato Obeid's World/Today's pick: This rambling weblog is worth reading not so much for its satirical posts but more for its insight into the minutiae of life in Lebanon, including the etiquette of road accidents and how to hire a taxi.” -Jane Perrone, The Guardian

    - who let the dogs out?

    "Dangerous spy-dogs apprehended crossing Lebanon-Israel border
    SIDON: Lebanese authorities have captured two dogs that crossed the border from Israel, checking whether they were booby-trapped or carried electronic implants that could be used for spying, Lebanese security officials said Friday.
    The two dogs, Shylo-type, "infiltrated" Lebanon on Thursday through an opening in the barbed wire fence that separates the Kfar Kila village in Southern Lebanon from the northern Israeli town of Metulla.
    Immediate measures were taken by local security forces who chased the dogs fearing the dogs might contain bombs.
    The dogs wore plastic collars with Hebrew writing on them, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
    They were being kept at a local police station while authorities decide what to do with them.
    Locals called for the dogs to be put down as a revenge against the Israeli violations of Lebanon's territory..."

    You couldn't make it up if you tried.


    ‘’In separate UNIFIL-related news a bull which had infiltrated Lebanese territory from Israel has attacked Spanish peacekeepers and headbutted their vehicles before being shot dead, An-Nahar daily reported on Wednesday.
    The newspaper said the UNIFIL troops were erecting an electric barbed-wire fence to prevent Israeli cows from entering Lebanese territory at the Baathaeel pond when Israeli soldiers unleashed the wild bull on the peacekeepers. A Spanish soldier shot the bull dead after it ran toward the UN troops and began headbutting their vehicles, the newspaper said.
    The peacekeepers then buried the bull and continued their work to erect the wire, which according to An Nahar has stopped the infiltration of Israeli cows to the pond area.’'
