For all the photo junkies, these are the absolutes must for any photographer heading to Lebanon to beef up their portfolio; the EU's lift of the Oil Ban in Syria may come back and bite them; and an Easter craft that takes just a few buttons.

For many Lebanese, they figure since weed and prostitution are so rampant, why not legalize it? The powers that be stand in the way; Palestinians mourn woman who died after inhaling tear gas; and Assad is not as permanent as people may think.
More and more, users are going to their mobiles for gaming as well. Sony has just put out a cell that will revolutionize playing on your phone; Lebanese politicians using Tinder; and an Egyptian girl's perspective on hasrassment.

An ancient Coptic manuscript has been proven to be indeed ancient and on it, Jesus mentions his wife as a disciple. True or not, should this change contemporary treatment of women? Big women are sexier in Lebanon; and Hillary gets high-heeled!
A jailed blogger is being denied medical treatment and is instead being systematically tortured in a tiny cell by the Iranian government; iTunes going HD; what race attracts the most lovers? and Jazz star John McLaughlin plays in Ramallah.

Ne'er has an administration been so blatant in pointing fingers at the settlement buildings and break of the Oslo Treaty as ruining the peace talks; a lot of money from America goes to Lebanon; and Twitter is about to pop!
Any single men over forty looking for a defense of your awesomeness? Jaraad lays out ten reasons, and even backs them up with the Quran! Anonymous strikes Israeli sites again; and little children eating lemons in slow motion.

While she's no sight for sore eyes, some Lebanese do not like the amount of skin singer Maya Diab chooses to show; seven things parents are doing all wrong; and a female reporter visits Tripoli without a veil and gets accosted by a five year old.
