Ramadan Kareem to all our Muslim readers and bloggers
Published July 8th, 2013 - 01:00 GMT
American Bedu may have jumped the gun on calling the beginning of Ramdan for July 8th but this blog expresses what all of us feel: have a great and blessed Ramdan! Now back to the drama in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.
This week, Russia blocked the draft text of a UN Security Council declaration of grave concern about the civilians trapped in the besieged city of Homs.
This probably means Moscow expects regime and Hezbollah forces to imminently route opposition rebels from Syria’s third largest city, which they have been pummeling for nearly 10 days.
