‘Topless’ Picture of Lebanese Olympic skier sparks flap

jacky  chamounJackie Chamoun, the Lebanese skier competing at the Sochi Winter Olympics, has sparked a flap in the country, including a ministerial demand for an investigation, after risque photos of her taken for a calendar resurfaced online.

The photos of Chamoun taken for the calendar show her holding strategically-placed ski equipment to protect her modesty as she poses in Faraya mountains.

But a video of the photoshoot and stills from the film, which leave rather less to the imagination, emerged online this week, sparking criticism in some quarters after they were featured on local television.

Chamoun took to Facebook on Tuesday to publicly apologize for the video and stills, which she said showed the preparation for the photoshoot, rather than the final product.

“The video and photos that you are now seeing are part of the making of the preparation. It wasn’t supposed to go public,” she wrote.

“I want to apologize to all of you, I know that Lebanon is a conservative country and this is not the image that reflects our culture,” she added.

“All I can ask to each of you who saw this is to stop spreading it, it will really help me focus on what is really important now: my training and race.”

But the apology has not placated everyone, with caretaker Youth and Sports Minister Faisal Karami calling on Tuesday for an investigation into the photos to ensure “the protection of Lebanon’s reputation.”

The local Olympic Committee was meeting Tuesday afternoon to discuss the issue, and the head of the Olympic delegation told Agence France Presse that Chamoun had been barred from speaking to the media.

Chamoun’s photos touched off a small firestorm in the country.

“Stop all your trash,” Issam Merhi wrote on Chamoun’s Facebook page, addressing her supporters.

“What she has done is wrong, or else you would have all done it.”

The 22-year-old Chamoun is competing in her second Winter Olympics representing Lebanon in alpine skiing.

And despite the criticism leveled against her, plenty of fans offered their support online.

“Don’t worry about nay sayers Jackie!” wrote Nicolas Rubeiz on her Facebook page.

“Cherish your independence and keep making us proud. You are causing no shame whatsoever to Lebanon.”

And others ridiculed the idea of a ministerial investigation to protect Lebanon’s reputation at a time when the country is being rocked by a string of car bombings and other violence.

“Weekly car bombs, not a big deal. #JackieChamoun in a slightly revealing photoshoot: scandal. #LebaneseProblem,” wrote Twitter user KareemVots.

Update 2 :  Phalange  party MP Sami Gemayel joined  the list of  Jackie Chamoun’s  defenders . He told her on his official Facebook page: “Focus on the  Olympics race in Sochi  and  your supporters we will take care of the rest” .

 

Update 2 :

Hours after caretaker Sports and Youth Minister Faisal Karami asked  the Olympic  Committee to investigate into the case of Lebanese Ski Champion Jackie Chamoun’s topless   photo on Tuesday that social media websites were overloaded with angry, sometimes sarcastic comments.

The Lebanese people expressed their solidarity with the athlete through blogs, tweets, and Facebook posts and even the number of people who like her page on Facebook, who were around 3000 this morning, reached more than 20,000.

A number of celebrities, politicians, and journalists also joined the campaign.

Journalist Dima Sadeq commented on Jackie’s picture: “Scandal? Did you say scandal? Excuse me but all I see in this picture is beauty and the sacred personal freedom… Jackie Chamoun thank you for your boldness and your beauty.”

Artist Anthony Touma announced his support for Chamoun in handling the ministry of sports in the new cabinet, while singer Bruno Tabbal tweeted: “We all support Jackie Chamoun.”

Kataeb bloc MP Nadim Gemayel commented on this issue, saying: “Jackie Chamoun is free to do whatever she wants… she is a talented skier and her pictures are beautiful. All the support!”

Also, Marada Movement official Vera Yammine stated: “You look at nudity and you overlook shame.”

As a result of this controversy, Chamoun’s case crossed Lebanon’s borders and reached international media.

Foreign Policy’s David Kenner commented on minister Karami’s decision: “These are the Lebanese government’s priorities.”

Meanwhile, The Huffington Post’s correspondent Patrick Galey in Beirut wrote an article entitled “Jackie Chamoun photos: Lebanon out dumbs itself.”

In his article, Galey criticized the attack against Chamoun especially after the Lebanese Tourism Ministry had repeatedly used the pictures of attractive women in its advertising campaigns.

Elsewhere, one of the tweets written in solidarity with Chamoun criticized how the Lebanese government is threatening her while foreign media is concerned with highlighting the skier’s long and difficult journey to reach the Olympics amid a complete absence of any official support for her career.

    an investigation into the photos to ensure “the protection of Lebanon’s reputation.” exactly What reputation are they talking about? any investigations going on for unsolved murders instead of a snow bunny?

    • nagy_michael2

      Yes they found the murder of Lebanon her name is Jackie. what a farce people we have in Lebanon. they kill each other but that’s ok.. they think their reputation is intact. but no they want to find a lame excuse to talk about. In Tripoli the sheiks screw with boys, but no not naked that’s Haram.. What a joke this country has become Geo..

        by chance, i saw a video by salman rushdi the other day. it was taken at a feminist convension so could be biased and i don’t know if it’s true what he said cause i’m not a muslim scholar but basicly he say that
        christianity and judaisem have a common ground in beliving in primal sin and therefor move in the spectrum between sin and redemption.
        muslim religion don’t follow that pattern but the pattern of shame and honor.the honor is with the man and the shame is with the woman, there for it’s man’s duty to protect the honor by covering the shame (or something like that)

        • nagy_michael2

          yah i probably agree with that assessment..

    So Karami uncle and his gangs used to kidnap Christians and hold them for ransom. His gangs used to go around Tripoli and threatened stores to pay them for so called protection but otherwise their stores were gone same day. Still Karami following the Saramis of Hezbollah.. look at yourselves first before you judge others. reputation of Lebanon my ass. we are killing each other and using car bombs. what reputations these hoodlums are they talking about. You go Jackie and do the hell you please.. we’re proud of you and God be with you..

      Best to leave God out of this one lol.

      • 5thDrawer

        Correct. God has no place in the bedrooms of the nation, or on it’s ski slopes … although there WAS a ‘bearded wonder’ up there checking it out last year. :-)))
        Strangely, Al-Assir was the one who needed the ‘escort’ to go see a ski-hill.

  • Btru2u

    The hijab, a headscarf which is required to be worn by Muslim women, is a symbol of modesty and humility. Not oppression like what the media will tell you. The hijab has one sole purpose.

    The hijab is worn so that Muslim women aren’t judged by their appearance. Not how much skin they show, or how their hair is styled. The hijab allows Muslim women to be judged by their personalities, the inner beauty.

    Hijabs aren’t oppression. A hijab shows that a women is modest, has humility, and is beautiful on the inside. Behind the hijab.

    • man-o-war

      Sorry Btru, but a headscarf wouldn’t have worked in this situation.
      Is she even Muslim?

    • nagy_michael2

      Sorry but dressing a little girl with Hijab who she doesn’t understand probably why other being forced to wear it do not have any meanings to modesty. Few months ago I saw a picture of 250 grown muslim men in Gaza where they were marrying 7 to 11 years old girls. what kind of modesty is this? that’s child rape my friend.. they’re treating women as sex object. what can these guys do with a 7 years old girl.. many girls died because of these early marriages. are you telling me they can’t find an 18 years old girls at least? what does that left to women who are single 20 and 30? where is the descency here? I am conservative too but its not fair we get to do what we want as men and woman get to cover themselves and do with them as we wish.

        nagy, i was so disgusted i said child abuse is legal in Saudi Arabia.. but you saw this in Gaza, do you have a source please?

            Thanks Man-O. :-) Interesting line there in the Snopes article:
            “unlike the style of weddings most westerners are accustomed to, brides don’t take center stage at this type of event”
            Reminds me of a line in another old song:
            ‘You’ve got to hide your love away.’ :-))))

            I was hoping that by posting the articles we would see that it was debunked. As in didn’t really happen the way the story was portrayed. Read all the way through the articles, unless I missed something.

          • 5thDrawer

            We didn’t miss anything Man-O. It was debunked … although one could find it strange that each groom has a young female ‘family member’ to accompany him, while the brides never appear for the wedding. Supposedly they were marrying off the widows of the guys who had already been killed, and the little ‘flower girls’ were just escorts to the next batch of going-to-be ex-grooms.
            Maybe the ladies have more ‘powers’ than we know. ;-))
            If they all look like ‘Jackie’, I could understand it. :-))))))

      Peace be with you akhi, ask any westerner what they love about lebanon they will tell you “the girls” or “the clubs”. When lebanon was at its peak before the civil war people used to travel from all over the world to get down with the lebanese girls. Even until this day lebanon is represented in the west by a pack of seductive belly dancers and not the multi ethnic multi religous diversity it really is. I may sound liberal but nobodywanys to see a hijabi representing them even at work its “unproffessional” to to wear a headscarf because iy doesntt fit in the “well groomed” code of conduct.

      alhamdulilah they are the losers who would trade a few momenys of pleasure for the akhira.

        True, it’s always been the whorehouse of the ME
        With all due respect to whores and their profession

        • man-o-war

          Most, if not all the whores in Lebanon are from eastern European countries and Russia. You don’t think to highly of Lebanon and its people, why is that?

          No country is without its fair share of whores, America being one of them. Around 1 million whores in the US, and its actually legal in Nevada. Now we’re only counting the women that charge for sex, the number skyrockets if we include the whores not charging ; )

          • MekensehParty

            Why don’t you read what I write?
            I said: “with all due respect to whores and their profession”
            If I portrayed prostitution negatively you can say what you said, but I didn’t. It’s a job. Some say the oldest in the world. Everyone is free to earn their lives the way they want.

          • MekensehParty

            PS: it’s common to believe that most prostitutes in Lebanon are from Eastern Europe. But that’s Maameltein mostly and this is the high-end place for prostitution.
            Go visit some whorehouses in Beirut, and let me specify where in Beirut exactly: in Dahyeh, and discover the variety of local girls working there…

          • man-o-war

          • man-o-war

            haha, my gripe was really with you calling Lebanon the whorehouse of the ME. Thanks though for being respectful to whores and their profession, very thoughtful of you.

          • MekensehParty

            Will you feel better if I say Nevada is the whorehouse of the USA?
            I don’t think people in Las Vegas would take it as an insult.

          • man-o-war

            I guess it technically is the whorehouse of the US, but that wasn’t my point. It would make me feel better if you weren’t always so disrespectful and demeaning to Lebanon and Lebanese. I know that’s asking a lot and I don’t think you really give a rats ass about how I feel. Not even sure why you felt the need to bring whores up in the first place, this is an educated beautiful woman who is free to do as she wishes. Not a whore, although some may wish she was. So, lets just move on before the insults start flying again.

          • MekensehParty

            Not surprised you have a problem understanding English, the tone was not demeaning, it was actually factual, and so that I make sure it’s not demeaning I added my respect to the profession itself. Your comments are what make it sound demeaning.

          • man-o-war

            “it’s always been the whorehouse of the ME”, I’m pretty sure I understood this correctly. The tone wasn’t demeaning? I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on that. Disrespect to the country, but respect for the profession. How noble of you!

            I need to keep in mind that you only speak the truth, everything you say is factual. Therefore, anything you say can’t be interpreted as disrespectful. My apologies.

            When did you go to Lebanon last man-o? Not having a go at you, but its funny that you say ‘most if not all whores in Lebanon are from eastern Europe’!! Moroccan and syrian sex workers in Lebanon have sent the Europeans packing. Even during the civil war, west Beirut brothels were full of syrian and arab prostitutes. I used to courier the medical certificates to the houses of pleasure. It was a dirty job, but hey, someone has to do it!

          • man-o-war

            I was there in the past year, but I can’t say I have first hand knowledge of the prostitutes. Just casual drives through some of the well known areas and the women sure didn’t look Syrian or Moroccan. I wouldn’t doubt that the civil war next door hasn’t brought an influx of Syrian’s desperate for work. Interesting to hear that about the civil war days, I didn’t know that.

            My time in Lebanon is spent exploring its rich history and beautiful abundant nature. What time I have left I spend it with my family and friends.

            I was there last year as well, but I am much older than you. So I have done my history tours and spending time with families. Now I go there for pleasure as I do with the rest of the world. Dubai is another beautiful destination for arab sex workers, there is nothing wrong with it man, they just want to survive like everyone else, as long they are happy doing it and not forced into it.

          • man-o-war

            The sad part, most of them are being lied to and forced into the sex trade. I’m sure most women in the sex trade wouldn’t mind doing other work, or having the opportunity to pursue a higher education. Nothing glorious about being a rag to be used for pleasure by sleazy overweight men. They would probably like to get married, have a family, and live in a nice house. Then again we are just pretending to know what they want.

            How do you know you’re much older than me? I don’t think you can ever be too old to enjoy our history, I can’t imagine you’ve been to all the ruins in Lebanon. Or all the ancient monasteries. How about all the natural wonders? So many waterfalls to still see, beaches to relax on, forest to walk through, trails to stomp on. So much to do and yet so little time. Then again, we all have different things that bring us pleasure. Me personally, I prefer a day in the mountains or a lazy afternoon on the beach. I will leave the clubs and brothels to you my friend. Enjoy ; )

            I went to Lebanon in 2002-2003 after winning $80000.00 dollar lottery and holidayed for 2 years non stop. I did all the beaches, mountains, monasteries, mosques, cedars, restaurants, Baalbak, Anjar, crusade castles, ruins, I hitchhiked and camped everywhere. I even went down to the south near the border with Israel and camped outside an Israeli post. I made them aware that I was Australian and not a spy, they left me alone and actually offered their assistance. Was harassed a couple of times by the syrian occupiers at the checkpoints, but nothing that a loaf of bread could not solve. Look, I admit I have not seen everything in Lebanon or what Lebanon has to offer, but I think I have done a lot compared to some Lebanese I know who just go there and spend their time with their families and that’s it.
            lol, I am not a regular brothel visitor, but I did a lot of work in that industry which I cannot give too much details about. A lot of the girls are actually educated and are studying for their degrees, they do it for quick cash. Plus brothels are heavily regulated these days, well most anyway, you have to meet certain hygiene and behaviour standards, you can refuse to service a fat filthy smelly disgusting blob if you want.

          Most, if not all the whores in Lebanon are from eastern European countries and Russia. You don’t think to highly of Lebanon and its people, why is that?

          No country is without its fair share of whores, America being one of them. Around 1 million whores in the US, and its actually legal in Nevada. Now we’re only counting the women that charge for sex, the number skyrockets if we include the whores not charging ; )

          • MekensehParty

            Why don’t you read what I write?
            I said: “with all due respect to whores and their profession”
            If I portrayed prostitution negatively you can say what you said, but I didn’t. It’s a job. Some say the oldest in the world. Everyone is free to earn their lives the way they want.

          • MekensehParty

            PS: it’s common to believe that most prostitutes in Lebanon are from Eastern Europe. But that’s Maameltein mostly and this is the high-end place for prostitution.
            Go visit some whorehouses in Beirut, and let me specify where in Beirut exactly: in Dahyeh, and discover the variety of local girls working there…

          • man-o-war

            haha, my gripe was really with you calling Lebanon the whorehouse of the ME. Thanks though for being respectful to whores and their profession, very thoughtful of you.

          • MekensehParty

            Will you feel better if I say Nevada is the whorehouse of the USA?
            I don’t think people in Las Vegas would take it as an insult.

          • man-o-war

            I guess it technically is the whorehouse of the US, but that wasn’t my point. It would make me feel better if you weren’t always so disrespectful and demeaning to Lebanon and Lebanese. I know that’s asking a lot and I don’t think you really give a rats ass about how I feel. Not even sure why you felt the need to bring whores up in the first place, this is an educated beautiful woman who is free to do as she wishes. Not a whore, although some may wish she was. So, lets just move on before the insults start flying again.

          • MekensehParty

            Not surprised you have a problem understanding English, the tone was not demeaning, it was actually factual, and so that I make sure it’s not demeaning I added my respect to the profession itself. Your comments are what make it sound demeaning.

          • libnan1

            Nothing wrong with whores … they help to prevent divorce and protect innocent women from rape therefore they serve a noble cause …:)

        • Igor Chingoski

          Thanks To Your mother who is the first whore of this world, that is why with all due respect for whores except for the ugliest of them all, Your Mother Tatoush Shitonia = Golda Meir LOL LOL LOL

      • IraniAngel

        lol it reminds me of iran… since i dont care about the dress code here, i went down to the local shop only wearing a knee short n a t-shirt which is really inappropiate in iran. the shop owner looked at me n said: our youth r buying the hell fire with joyless sins! hahahaha what a freak!

        • Reasonableman

          I wouldnt say joyless, you dont know weather I have zoomed in on her or even tried to google search her name we are all humans who dont know any better until we feel the pinch.
          Im a believer that there is something bigger and better than 5 minutes of joy and that there is a bigger purrpose to why I am alive without my own consent.
          did I create mysself from nothing or was I created?
          You don’t have to believe thays your right, but mocking is childish

          • libnan1

            Yeah but you still like to get laid.

          • Reasonableman

            LOL if thats what you want to hear then fine, I wouldnt say I havnt thought about it and I wouldnt say I havnt tried and in my past I wont deny that I have. Moving forward I do regret it. The better option is getting married or busying yourself talking or doing things to better humanity. There is no pride and joy in who you have screwed because it could be someones mum or sister and if she has screwed you shell screw someone else.

            animals screw all the time. We are not better than animals if we think and behave like them.

          • libnan1

            you see now talking, I guess you’re not that bad after all …..:) It’s not like you were bad.

          • Geo

            You are one reasonable man .

          • Reasonableman

            I usually dont wait for a compliment in order to return it but I must say you are a smart man.
            we all have a reasonable man in us, its just a matter of being humble enough to accept him.

          • libnan1

            Yeah but you still like to get laid.

      • Btru2u

        You are right Akhi, The west has seduced the people of libnan into becoming what they never thought they would be, even the Christians own bible says ,
        Men are stimulated by sight. This is why Jesus told the men of His day, “whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” (Matthew 5:28). Men are stimulated by sight. Men are always attracted to a lady, physically, before they are connected to her emotionally. In fact, they don’t even want to pursue the possibility of an emotional relationship, if the physical attraction isn’t there.

        • 5thDrawer

          Well Btru2u .. some of us have enjoyed a mind first – strange as that may seem to you. But then, perhaps only nudists think that way.
          Artists prefer curves to angles anyway. Don’t need to be so exact. ;-)

      • libnan1

        Just admit Reasonable, Muslim men require their women to wear a hijab so they do have spend the money at the hair salon. At $90 a pop it gets expensive, also they can use that money to spend at strip clubs.

        • Reasonableman

          What about nuns then?? Trust me leave the religion out of it

        • Reasonableman

          Muslim women and men may not mean nothing to you so I pray your kids will be muslim inshaa allah and you will see how beautiful and respected muslims really are.

          oh no he didnt oh yes he did. Bite me ;-)

          • nagy_michael2

            Don’t let libnan1 get to you.. he is just too horny lol.

    • IraniAngel

      the hijab is a nasty piece of shit! i wud under no circumstances allow any of my WIVES (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) to wear that! no seriously i wud burn it while she is wearing it on top of her head not caring whether she is physically hurt!!!

      • man-o-war

        Well, in his defense, without it Btru may not be able to contain his animal urges. They need women to wear it and dress modestly to protect them from themselves.

        • IraniAngel

          i betcha. did u know that muslim men r the horniest in the entire world?

          • libnan1

            yes Angel, men and women like to get laid no matter religion. Show any man a naked hot women and he’ll sport a Bonner. Show any women a hung low (my naked picture) and they will get wet with or without hijab.

          • Geo

            Man you are hardcore, I think you can make andrew Dice clay blush, Yalibnan crew Might get you for this one.

          • Geo

            You are probably right the bastards knew the effects this would have to a bunch of overaged undersexed lebanese men ;) they are totally responsible for everyones bad behahior…i say we need to send yalibnan a warning :)P

            What about love..all men want all women, all women want all men?

          • 5thDrawer

            Hind. One can have love without sex. It’s not an equation.
            ‘Want’ is entirely different. We all desire things (like sex) which we can’t have at various times for various reasons – which is what Libnan1 fumbles with, I think.
            (more snow might tire it out a little – or at least turn it blue. ;)

          • Hind Abyad

            No love in sex without love..that’s why i always thought of men
            like Circe, transforming them into “piglets” …

          • Geo

            Piglets lol very funny Hind :)

          • 5thDrawer

            Circe was a goddess too. ;-)

    • 5thDrawer

      Why does it always seem black??
      Of course, there’s the ones who even cover the eyes with jail-bar screens … and some seem to allow one eye … but I was thinking, total white-outs would be cooler – although at that point if the eyes showed, they might look like two pee-holes in a snow pile …… and as everyone knows, one shouldn’t eat yellow or black snow.
      White would have a second benefit here today, or on the Lebanese ski-slopes … camouflage … ‘out of sight, out of mind’ being preferred I guess. :-))
      I must say, however, that Jackie is a lovely contrast ….

          • Hind Abyad

            It’s Illegal!! French said it’s legal? Holland is a Zionist, BHL the Prince, Pair de France, Nikolo Machiavelli he’s the one that arranged Libya invasion, he decides what France does.
            Do you own Jerusalem? It was not founded by Jews.
            A new paper by Israeli archeologist Lidar Sapir-Hen and Ben Yosef (pdf) posted at the University of Tel Aviv website, is bad news for biblical litarist and the rigth wing nationalists who use the Bible for support. The Hebrew Bible’s oldest chapters, Genesis, Exodus and even Judges purport to discuss events housands of years ago.
            The customs in western biblical scholarship is to date Abraham to e.g. 2000BC. This dating is based on nothing more than counting generations (begats) backward and arbitrary number of years to each generation before Abraham.
            In fact, Genesis is replete with myths and assertions of people living hundreds of years, and was only historicised in this way by 19th century positivists.

            Here is proof the Bible was writen late and projects later developments into the distant past: it aleges that peeople had domesticated camels for a millenimia ago in what is now Israel, and the assertion is simply not true.
            That’s the findings of Sapin Hen-Ben Yosef words.
            Eg: Genesis 24:64 Says, “Rachel lifted her eyes, and saw Isaac she dismounted from the camel”. If this encounter happened circa 2026BC: it was a thousand years before anyone was riding a camel.

          • libnan1

            My mom likes to visit Jerusalem one day. I don’t know if it’s possible as Lebanese with an American passport !!!

          • cook2half

            They give me shit at the airport all the time, but just stay calm and tell them what they want to hear.

          • libnan1

            I doubt she’ll do it. She does not take shit from anyone, she’ll give it back faster than they can dish it out. The last time she was in Lebanon the airline tried to give her shit she made the lady behind the counter cry. Also she asked the police at the airport how come they don’t have General Aoun’s picture on the wall. Go figure.

          • cook2half

            LOL!! She’s badass :P Well in my opinion, she’s an American and has every right to visit like any other American. Jerusalem especially is a city for all religions

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            His picture is hanging on the walls of the rest rooms, it’s used in place of laxatives and the effects are instant.

          • doron

            ofcourse it is.
            no one will give problems to an elderly american woman. they might run a backround check on her but no one will stop her from entering.
            i remember my parents traveling to USA during the second iraq war…since my mother’s birth place is iraq ‘they gave her hell at JFK. it didn’t matter that the person is an israeli, they held her and my father for hours before allowing them to move.

            tell your mother it’s safe for her to visit please

          • 5thDrawer

            I have a Jewish friend who went to Israel last year – one of those ‘great pilgrimages’ … after the airport people (on both ends of the trip) got through with him, he spent the first week there in hospital getting his pacemaker back in tune.
            The return trip resulted in another 3 months stay with a complete replacement and some extra ‘cardio’ work. (Let’s hear it for ‘health care’ plans. ;-)
            He has yet to answer my questions: ‘Was it really necessary?’ ‘Do you feel ‘fulfilled’ now with about 25% pumping ability?’
            I’m certain it wasn’t the girls on the beach that put him off ….

          • doron

            ???really? my granny has a pace maker and she never went through the screen.ofcourse she didnt fly nowhere for the last 10 years
            on the other hand, every time i get back home the border scurity personal stop me for questioning..i was stoped by the same lady twice returning from 2 different trips.the second time i laughed to her face :))
            mybe i look like a wanted terrorist?

          • 5thDrawer

            I guess, Doron, it’s all about how one handles having personal privacy totally violated and your word not being taken at face value – especially if you have considered yourself an upright and free citizen all your life, and paid all your taxes for the ‘identity’ you thought you had. Call it an epidemic of distrust.
            Thanks, of course, first to the boneheads who want to blow everyone up for some godly theory – and then to the reactionaries who live in personal fear of something that they may never even see in a lifetime.
            Having to stand in lines in airports – and even having to be there long before a flight – is as detrimental to general health as the reduced air pressure at altitude and the cramped seating. Age becomes a factor in survival of that.

          • doron

            well…i kind of lived to see a couple of boneheads blow up so i tend to treat those humorless pricks with tolerance and respect.
            and they breed them to be humorless ,you can’t train such farts :))

          • 5thDrawer

            If only we could get the warmer water over to those beaches …

          • Leborigine

            Haha regardless, I bet it is still nicer than a lot of other countries around us!

          • doron

            it is, and if we could take the money/energy/thinking effort we put into militry today and put it into develpoment, we’d be much better..
            ofcourse the corrupted ones would have to adjust and take bigger bribes but i’m sure they will not complain ;)

          • Leborigine

            That’s the case in most countries doron, lets hope for the best though!

            The Bible, although it was likely based on previous oral tales, i was probabbly writen down in something like it’s present from untill Babylonian exile 586-539 BC. When those scribes reworded the folk tales of the Caanits, they projected sixt century BC., realities in the past, thus they had characters riding camels before they were domesticated. Riding a camel was taken for granted in 580BC. The archeological evidence shows, people weren’t riding camels in the Levant when the Bible say there were.
            David and Salomon didn’t have huge palaces in Jerusalemin the 1000’s and 9000’s BC. The Assyrians, the gossips of the ancient world, wrote down everything on their clay tablets. They knew all the events in all Middle East.
            They did not show anything about a glorious Kingdom of David and Salomon
            at Jerusalem in the 1000BC.. when David and Salomon were aleged to have lived in Jerusalem, seems to have been laregely unhabited, according to digst that have been done, Jerusalem was in no case founded by Jews, but in honor of God Shem thousands of years ago, there is no reason to think anyone but the Caanits lived in the area Jerusalem in the 1000 or 9000 BC, likely some Caanits became devoted to Y*A*W*H*i n a monotheistic way during the Babylonian exile when they began to invent Judaisme and becoming ‘Jews’ and projecting back into the distant past, in short those far rigths Zionism stories as bases for kicking Palestians out of their homes in East Jerusalem – are making many mistakes, historicaly and on Human Rigths mistakes.

          • 5thDrawer

            But Hind, not caring much about the ancient past, we might want to know what they had to say about comely women having their tops off in a snow-bank.
            I mean, what’s really important here???

          • Hind Abyad

            It’s actual news for 2halffull Zionist, they care for old times and are disproved.
            A new paper by Israeli Lidar Sapir-Hen and Ben Yosef (pdf) posted at the University of Tel Aviv website, is bad news for biblical litarist and far rigth nationalists who use the Bible for support.. above is second part of my post.

            “(..) Genesis is repleded with myths and assertions of people living hundred years, and hitoricised into this way by 19th century positivists”. Eg: Genesis 24:64 says, “Rachel lifted her eyes, and saw Isaac she dimonted the camel”.
            If this encounter happened circa 2026 BC: it was 1000 years before anyone
            was riding camels”. Bible says there were David and Salomon had huge Palace
            in Jerusalem in the 1000′ and 9000’s BC. The Assyrians, the gossip of the ancient world, wrote down everything on their clay tablets. They knew events
            in all Middle East. They did not show anything about a glorious Kingdom of David and Salomon at Jerusalem in the 1000 BC, when David it aleged have lived, Jerusalem seems to have been largely unihabited according to digst
            that have done Jerusalem was not in any case founded by Jews.” (..)

            No Mabrook i don’t mix in “all manly” conversation of naked woman.
            I asked 2halfcrook a question he didn’t want to answer, he’s an expert spamer, did it to me in December yelling to everybody; “the spamer xyz (my diqus) number, because i’m anti-Zionist his job here is to deffer attention from me. But it was never as dangerous..(manipulator).

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Hi Hindcess, In all honesty I don’t know what your talking about but I never try to understand women cos it’s pointless. If 2halfcook is trying to deter attention away from you then trust me it’s not working.

          • Hind Abyad

            You’re funny.. i wrote to arrogant halfcook about the Bible, the Zionists
            use to make us live i hell and war with their invented shosen people, they were
            not founders of Jerusalem, it was the Caanits ancestors of many Palestinians, many Lebanese, many Syrian and many Jews (that came later).

    Its a damn shame that we as a society we still don’t have our priories straight. Our politicians biker and fight over petty issues, and take years to form a government, a task that usually takes weeks in any country in the world that respects itself. Yet the scandal of the day is a young woman that did something brave, something most people in our backwards society will never understand, and something most of us don’t have the courage to do. It is not Jackie Chamoun that is shaming our country its the people leading us that are doing that job all on their own. Maybe we should have an investigation on why we have one of the highest GDP to Debt ratio in the world, yet nothing to show for it. Maybe we should have an investigation on why we have the biggest oil and gas reserve in the region yet we cannot start drilling because our so called leaders cant stop fighting about how to divide up the profits, as if those resources belonged to them. Maybe if people focused half their energy on trying to solve the countless REAL problems we face as a society, rather than creating issues where none exists we would be able to move forward in life and all be better off.

    Seems perfectly natural to me. And if certain ‘ministers’ could administer for a country properly, there wouldn’t be a need for ‘strategic placements’ at all. ;-)
    And I would have done it too, if the sun was shining and it wasn’t -20. :-)))

        Not too much to say, really … I find it sad that it goes the way it does.
        The ‘Leb Ministers’ saying anything is bad enough – but the fact it make a news item is the saddest part. The world is too weird …
        By the way, a friend sent me pics of an ‘eleven’ today … sorry, can’t send. :-))))))

    Well here’s the good news, she obviously a woman so need for gender testing like the Iranians are doing to their female soccer players…Lebanon is New Iran after all.. civilized modern countries must be laughing at Lebanon’s absurdity. The country keeps going backwards rather than progressing, its a shame.

    From the protocols of Zion

    “Behold the alcoholized animals, bemused with drink, the right to an immoderate use of which comes along with freedom. It is not for us and ours to walk that road. The peoples of the goyim are bemused with alcoholic liquors; their youth has grown stupid on classicism and from early immorality, into which it has been inducted by our special agents — by tutors, lackeys, governesses in the houses of the wealthy, by clerks and others, by our women in the places of dissipation frequented by the goyim. In the number of these last I count also the so-called “society ladies,” voluntary followers of the others in corruption and luxury.”

    “In countries known as progressive and enlightened we have created a senseless, filthy, abominable literature. For some time after our entrance to power we shall continue to encourage its existence in order to provide a telling relief by contrast to the speeches, party programme, which will be distributed from exalted quarters of ours. Our wise men, trained to become leaders of the goyim, will compose speeches, projects, memoirs, articles, which will be used by us to influence the minds of the goyim, directing them towards such understanding and forms of knowledge as have been determined by us.”

      Hey mr beetroot, you need to stop cutting and pasting, and start using your brain on here.

      • Btru2u

        The attention I get from you lot is flattering , but I don’t seek your attention, nor do I seek a response from those I do not address, and why don’t you all “GET A LIFE”, because you don’t seem to do anything else. I am only using quick intelligent information, where you islamaphobic lot just insult anyone who differs wih your opinion.

        • 5thDrawer

          Yup. Got a point. Bye.

      Hows the weather in Gaza these days?

      • Hind Abyad

        Today Israel warplanes launch a serie of mock attacks on Gaza.
        Israeli Offensive Army soldiers break into Hamas leader home
        Maged Hassan question him and his wife.
        And how’s the weather in Israhell?

        • Meifumado

          Its cold in the N.E. coast here in the USA.

          Dont launch rockets at civilians and maybe you wont have to worry about the warplanes.

          Shame that Israel has not killed that dog faced piece of terrorist garbage yet.

          • Hind Abyad

            I’m not launching rockets at civilians?

        • doron

    Re: Updates
    One might expect silly crap from ‘Huffington Post’ which emulates Fox News with ‘huffiness’.
    ‘Huffy’ (adjective) – ‘easily offended’.
    ‘Huff’ (verb) – ‘show one’s annoyance in obvious way’ ‘ exhale noisily’
    ……..(noun) – ‘a fit of petty annoyance’.
    ‘Petty’ (adjective) – ‘of little importance’ ‘small-minded’ ‘of lesser importance’ (from Fr. ‘petite’)
    Although, in general the ‘Post’ shows up the ‘small-country idiocy’ (most of which would never notice the pictures anyway), it seems no-one has anything better to do at the moment than make comments on an advertising campaign which pays the skier to put some food on her table.
    In other words, with nothing better to contribute to the ‘problems’ of a whole MESS of humanity, they attempt to turn a silk purse into a sow’s ear – while most of us simply enjoy the silk purse. ;-)

      Camille Shamhoun?

      He was a fantastic president. Won’t be seeing his kind again not in Lebanon anyway. He was a statesmen, a classic gentlemen that hasn’t been seen in that part of the world for quite a while. He makes royalty look common.

  • nagy_michael2

    So Karami uncle and his gangs used to kidnap Christians and hold them for ransom. His gangs used to go around Tripoli and threatened stores to pay them for so called protection but otherwise their stores were gone same day. Still Karami following the Saramis of Hezbollah.. look at yourselves first before you judge others. reputation of Lebanon my ass. we are killing each other and using car bombs. what reputations these hoodlums are they talking about. You go Jackie and do the hell you please.. we’re proud of you and God be with you..

  • Geo

    Correct. God has no place in the bedrooms of the nation, or on it’s ski slopes … although there WAS a ‘bearded wonder’ up there checking it out last year. :-)))
