Hey Jay,
Well it was a huge protest by the opposition; it's going on at this moment but with fewer numbers. Looking on the bright side, there were 800K protesters. But the Lebanese population is about 3.5 million. So it's a relatively smaller percentage, plus this is the maximum that Hezbollah and his allies can gather.
As for the civil war, I doubt it will happen. Everything is peaceful until now, and the other parties don't have arms. For a war, you need weapons, this is not the case.

Count one more American who cheers you on. I would have loved to have been at that rally/singles event too!

I think you Lebanese hold out the promise that peace and joy can reign in the Middle east, which we Americans so dearly hope to see.

People like you, and those who chat in the Lebanese cafe section, at www.skyscrapercity.com give me hope that you folks are wonderful, kind optimistic and good.

And after looking at that site amongst the models, and the nightlife sections, the girls have got to be the hottest....smokin'

Thanks, great site. I've never heard of it before.
I'm glad you liked the videos I shot.
P.S Good job on the hottie list.

There's nothing to worry about. Thanks.
It's only a peaceful protest/sleep-in until now.
The Prime Minister is going backing down, and hopefully he will not. He requested that all the people who support the government to put the Lebanese flag on their balconies. Now buildings are covered with flags.

Aziz, good luck, and we hope you are ok. Jim
I'm fine, thanks for asking. Going on with my life as usual, because if I don't I'd playing their game. Their aim is to disrupt my way of life, and I'm simply not gonna let them do that, me and the rest of us who support Siniora's government.

Very simple and in a nutshell: they want Veto power in the government (acquiring 1/3 of the cabinet seats).
