Fact: Lebanon has a multi religious community with a legislated right of freedom of choice of religion and of labor. Yet some women, having an Islamic dress-code (i.e veil) are denied to work at companies with this unethical & unjust policy.

نحن الموقعين ادناه، ندعو المؤسسات الرسمية اللبنانية، التشريعية والتنفيذية الى اعادة النظر بالقوانين الراهنة، التي تحرم اخوتنا اللاجئين الفلسطينيين من أبسط الحقوق الانسانية. عبر تشريعات قانونية تأخذ بالاعتبار الوضع الخاص للاجئين الفلسطينيين في لبنان، باعتبارهم جزء من شعب شقيق يختلف واقعهم عن بقية الرعايا العرب الموجودين في لبنان، بما يشمل منحهم الحقوق الاقتصادية والاجتماعية، كما أقرتها مواثيق حقوق الانسان، خاصة حق العمل، من خلال الغاء اجازة العمل، واستثناء الفلسطينيين من مبدأ المعاملة بالمثل، اضافة الى الضمانات الاجتماعية، وحق التملك لمأوى لحين العوده، والاعتراف القانوني بمن لا يملكون أوراق ثبوتية.
ان اقرار هذه الحقوق يشكل اسهاماً فعلياً في صيانه حق العودة، والهوية الوطنية للاجئين، بما يعزز الموقف المشترك برفض التوطين والتهجير والتمسك بحق العودة وفقاً للقرار
From NOW Lebanon’s article, “Lebanon’s VoIP ban: enforcing the unenforceable”:
In an effort it says is specifically aimed at stopping illegal operations, the Ministry of Telecommunications is enforcing parts of a 2002 law that banned Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, like Skype and magicJack, angering many at-home users of these services in the process.
Illegal call centers cater mostly to Lebanon’s low-paid foreign workforce, and, according to a June 9 ministry press release, they cost the state $150 million each year in lost revenues. With a monopoly on the country’s telecom infrastructure, the state sets high call rates, making millions off the sector every year.
Lebanon is sticking with its decision against allowing the technology, even as more countries in North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia lift their bans, said Riad Bahsoun, CEO of a local IT company and the vice chairman of the board of directors of the IT industry group SAMENA Telecommunications Council.

في آذار/مارس 2009 وعدت وزارة العمل اللبنانية بتطبيق العقد الموحد للعاملات الأجنبيات الذي يستلزم الامتثال لمعايير الحماية المنصوص عليها في العقد الجديد قبل منح تصاريح عمل صادرة عن الوزارة -- لا تسمح/ي لهم بعدم تطبيق هذا القانون بفعالية.
وفقا للعقد الجديد لعاملات المنازل الأجنبيات، لا يجوز أن تتخطى ساعات العمل اليومية العشر ساعات، ويحق لهم بثماني ساعات متواصلة من النوم. يتضمن العقد أيضا يوم عطلة أسبوعياً (24 ساعة)، كما يلزم أرباب العمل بدفع الرواتب شهرياً وتقديم دلائل تثبت ذلك وتحوي تواقيع الطرفين.
إذا فشلت وزارة العمل في تنفيذ العقد الموحد الجديد، وتحسين ظروف عمل النساء بحلول نهاية عام 2009، ستستمر ظاهرة وفاة العاملات الأجنبيات في لبنان بظروف غير طبيعية

The Beirut City Center, by Joseph Phillipe Karam, a prominent modernist Lebanese architect of the 60s, is an egg shaped theater / cinema in downtown Beirut.
Its design is a symbol of modern design foresight and a testament to Lebanese talent and architecture.
Now, with the Beirut downtown area renovation and reconstruction, this milestone of Lebanese design is on death-row, making space for the new 600 million dollar Beirut Gate project.
“Lebanon must join Rome Statue and accept the jurisdiction of the International criminal court on its territory. It will deter the Zionist army from occupying Lebanon and committing war crimes, since then the ICC will have jurisdiction also on Israeli crimes against Lebanon, and the Zionist war criminals may be brought to international justice in Hague. In addition, Israel will be demanded to compensate Lebanon.
In addition, it is the best way to cope with Hezbollah. Maybe the government of Lebanon has no power to disarm Hezbollah, but it has power to deter it from committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

Mauled dog faces death after being left untreated at Lebanon Animal Control Shelter.
Seeking termination, prosecution and conviction of Josh Greer and individual(s) responsible for animal cruelty and abuse of Zania.
Zania, a 4-year-old black Labrador retriever, was a playmate to a 4-year-old boy living in Mt. Juliet. She was picked up Friday, October 14, 2005, for running loose and placed in the Lebanon Animal Control facility because Mt. Juliet has no facility of its own. Zania was placed in a pen on Saturday with three other dogs, who for several hours, continuously attacked her until she was found lying in a pool of blood Sunday afternoon.
Zania was removed from the pen, hosed off (to wash off all the blood), and left outside on the concrete floor. She lay on the cold (50 degrees), wet concrete until an anonymous phone call was made to the Director of the Humane Association of Wilson County, a nonprofit, private agency with no ties to Lebanon Animal Control.
The dog was lying apparently lifeless on the concrete floor inside a chain link fenced enclosure when the Director arrived. She discovered the dog was still alive and called the Police Department, who came with an animal control officer 30 minutes later. After another 30 minute delay, they took the dog to the Lebanon Animal Hospital. The Director confirmed with the animal control officer that Zania was a healthy dog when she was picked up. The animal control officers also confirmed they were aware Zania had been injured earlier by the other dogs, but had made the decision to let her recover on her own.
Dr. Craig, the attending veterinarian, verified Zania was in shock, had a subnormal temperature, blood loss and would not have survived over night if she had been left untreated at the animal control facility. Details of his report and pictures of Zania can be seen at:
http://www.oilydog.org/lab.htm. There is also another article at:
When the story first came to light, Zania was facing leg amputation. Now, she is facing death because of the cruelty inflicted by Josh Greer.
According to Tennessee Code, Title 39 Criminal Offenses, Chapter 14 Offenses Against Property Part 2-Animals, under Section 39-14-202, Cruelty to animals:
(2) Fails unreasonably to provide necessary food, water, care or shelter for an animal in the person's custody;
(3) Abandons unreasonably an animal in the person's custody; and
(4) Transports or confines an animal in a cruel manner can be found committing an offense under this section and is a Class A misdemeanor.
In addition, 39-14-212 Aggravated cruelty to animals - (a) A person commits aggravated cruelty to animals when, with aggravated cruelty and with no justifiable purpose, such person intentionally kills or intentionally causes serious physical injury to a companion animal. Under this section, as of June, 2004, offenses carry felony level penalties. We believe these codes have been violated.
It is not acceptable or humane to place dogs with unknown histories in cages together especially with breeds known for fighting. Zania was denied shelter with no protection from the elements as she lay dying, compassion in her handling while in Josh Greer's and other animal control officers care, protection when she was locked and confined in a pen with a breed of animals known to fight with no means of escape or protection, and immediate vet care as she lay in critical condition. She was confined and abandoned in a cruel manner that now threatens her life.
Zania has suffered enough. Our prayers and thoughts are with Zania and her family. We respectfully ask that you act on behalf of Zania and other animals who have found themselves in similar situations to put a stop to the cruelty and abuse that exists at Lebanon Animal Control. Josh Greer and those individual(s) responsible for Zania's cruelty and abuse must be terminated. No justifiable purpose can be found in the reckless, cruel, and abusive manner in which the animal conrol officers behaved in the care, handling and decision making for Zania. We therefore petition that they be prosecuted and convicted to the fullest extent of the law.
On behalf of Zania and all animals, we thank you.
