Here we are today at the final day of Ramadan, happy eid fotor to everyone and especially Muslims around the world.
this week we will start with a magnificent scene that happened in Tripoli, yes Tripoli in Lebanon, but different from what we have been seeing during the past week, or should I say years also.
Beside that, what was remarkable this week is the public appearance of Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and also the fireworks explosion in Downtown Beirut, along with two new possibilities to add Lebanon to the Guinness world record.
