Lebanon July/August 2006

On the anniversary of the end of the Israeli war on Lebanon it is worth revisiting some of the best blogs written at the time.

The Siege of Lebanon is a remarkable collection of eyewitness reports of everyday life during wartime, while the Samidoun relief network gives a detailed insight into the suffering and destruction.

The most cutting comments remains, however, Anecdotes from a Banana Republic. ABR's description of how rich Lebanese drank and danced while the country was in flames is one of the best descriptions of all that is wrong in our country.
