The Israeli Army is not at all pleased with what they perceive as the free loading antics of Ultra-Orthodox men choosing to not serve their country militarily; a Lebanese sheikh is causing a whole lot of trouble; and Tunisians encouraged to rock the vote.

How classy is el Seed's caligrafitti? He painted a mural on the minaret of a Tunisian mosque. This globetrotting Arab Banksy showed his stuff recently in Amman; is the White Shroud Syria's answer to ISIS; and which GoPro Hero is better?

Startling numbers have come out of Iraq showing that the Muslims killing other Muslims through the use of self-detonation are primarily Saudi; an acid attack in Yemen leaves a government employee clinging to life; and the parliament extension in Lebanon is just wrong.
Ahmed El-Darawi did not win his parliamentary bid but he did successfully blow himself up as an IS suicide bomber in Syria; Palestinians only given 5 days to harvest their olives; Iranian official sees the end in sight; and some people are lust plain stupid.
