Welcome to my blog

Dear reader,

Welcome to my blog. It is the continuation of my Dutch blog which was started at the outbreak of the war between Israel and Hezbollah in July 2006.

The purpose of this blog is monitor the current events in Lebanon, hopefully relatively neutral and with an outsider point of view. I am a Dutch man living and working in Beirut since 2001. As I don't speak, read or write Arabic, I am limited to English and French news sources, so please keep that in mind when reading my blog.

I'd appreciate feedback and comments, which you can leave behind at each article. You can also contact me at

Enjoy the blog!
