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.
One visit to Tunisia and the lighter mood and hopeful strides of the people is evident. Now this theme needs to be transferred to the new economy; terror attack in Bulgaria traced to Lebanon; and 100 days since Al Jazeera Staff imprisoned.

The people have spoken and Apple has heard their cries. Those who like the bigger screen are in store for a real treat with the newest iPhone; a woman's worst nightmare; 75 year old priest killed in Syria; and Ethiopian worker dead in Lebanon.
Believe it or not, despite the threat from the Taliban, the Afghanis came out in droves and it seems that a fair democratic election took place; Pope says 'Nope' to Son of God movie; and beauty tips every girl must know.

Michael “Mike” Harari was given the highest honor by the Israeli Special Forces and his stories, like the car chase in Italy, are unbelievable; a tribal massacre in Egypt; Bahrain's U.S. Embassy fiasco; and Israeli forces shoot a Jewish cameraman.
Extremist groups that were once on the fringes of society have attained a respectable position within the mainstream political and religious right; MEA does not like Lion King; memories of a martyred Syrian mother; and the female side of a Saudi wedding.

As if being raped by a security guard at her hotel were not enough, a British tourist's story is being called a 'comedy' by a liberal, female Egyptian professor; stealth tanks are the new rage; the latest ME Tech news; and refugees in Syria top 1 million.

The longterm pain of the Iraqi war is felt even stronger after a soldier loses his mind and goes on a rampage. How dangerous is this PTSD threat? Abbas moving forwards, alone; 'Seven Girls You'll Date in Lebanon'; and April Fool's for Muslims.
Many Arabs believe heaven is under the feet of their mothers. One spoiled brat decided his mother needed his foot in her face on live TV: Movie Review: Son of God; Maysoon Zayid makes everyone proud; and women in Egypt have no space of their own.

The writers of this list have nailed down the likes that frequent the watering holes of the Middle East. Don't worry Europeans- you made the list; baby dies in hot car; U.S. and Israel call Iran a threat; and the perspective of Saudis on American women.
The so-called President of the most “open and free” country in the Arab World just equated terrorists to atheists; an April Fool's to remember; a week in 'Turkish Politics 101'; and Saudi victim of Boston Marathon bombing sues Glenn Beck.

Apparently life on the streets can't be that rough, at least for one Lebanese beggar. This guy is living the dream and makes no apologies; film review: 'The Bag Man"; and the Lebanese parliament proves once again that they're morons.
Recently, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Gaza and West Bank occupied. He quickly backtracked but the facts remain- he was right; Assad bringing in family from Iran; Daddy's in an Israeli jail-cell; and why Syria is not trending.

Of course your have the "Buckets" guys- 'Mr. Sweats Enough to Fill a Bucket"'. Who else are you sure to run into when pumping iron? Breaking up is hard to do; Tintin in the Middle East? and the Dutch ambassador in Lebanon rocks.
A survey among Saudi women showed they don't trust their husband and hate when he travels for fear he'll return with a second wife; double standards abound in the West Bank; accessing your computer remotely; and Saudi King has some wants from Obama.
