A pillar of freedom and bastion of justice it may be, but what's for certain is that the governmental workings of the States is rotten to the core; an activist's view on Egypt's Anti-Terror law; and a Lebanese man playing for Manchester United?
This amazing footage could have very well been a man filming his own death at the hands of Israeli soldiers. Fortunately, his wounds were not fatal; Iran is not out of the woods yet; and a place for transgenders in Lebanon to feel safe.

In case someone says as an aside," Yea, I think things are getting better in Egypt", drop these four recent events on their warped lap; cold forecast for refugees; Dr Abdullah al-Hamid for the Nobel; and one nun in Syria who is making peace happen.
On an innocent ride at a celebrity car show, Paul Walker lost his life to the flames of a car accident. Needless to say, millions of fans are in shock; Bibi to boot the Bedouins; lessons in daily blogging; and Egyptians abuse their Syrian refugees.

Even though this hacker can't stand the Muslim Brotherhood, he couldn't just sit back and watch 14 conservative girls get thrown in the slammer; Turkey and Iran buttering up; "Iran, yea, that's cool, dude." and Israeli attitudes toward the Nakba.
Adley Mansour taught those from the No Military Trial campaign that the new anti-protest law is for real and that class was in session; like Dubai? Ehh, not so much; surviving without a can opener; and order food online in Jordan now.

The Saudi Juliet and her Yemeni Romeo have spawned a following; there's even a Facebook page, entitled “We are all Huda and Arafat”; Saudi not too pleased with Iranian deal; the real news on Yemen; and picking up chicks in KSA.
Al Jadeed went to the airport to get an interview with the head of customs Shafiq Merhi to investigate corruption allegations. Instead of the interview, Brig. Gen. Ibrahim Shamseddine sent customs agents to go and beat up the reporter and the cameraman.

Apparently not all Israelis are against the brokered nuclear deal the Western superpowers made with Iran. Really, ask any of the Israeli brass; Iran deal will help oil production; and after the deal, many expect Israel to feel the pressure to dismantle their nuclear weapons.
The establishment in Saudi loves American products, but what of those cursed models with their elbows and knees all exposed? Israel to be a lone wolf and attack Iran; and children celebrate a country that they will never belong to.

The UN has released on this day a report that sheds light on the increased use of rape, torture and other forms of violence against women in Syria; fisherman in Lebanon ousted from their own piers; and humans and environmental rights in Jordan.
