Good luck Qatar and from the bottom of my heart....GO DOHA!
Just when I was about to get to bed and doing my bedtime news round I came across the funniest political statement of the year so far. If it is that funny, then as you may have figured out, it has to do with Arabs politicians. This time is from Lebanon. The Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Saniora has stated: “Hezbollah did to Beirut what Israel didn't dare”. Of course if you haven’t got the joke in the statement, then it’s either you don’t have a sense of humor and may god be with your spouse during your dull time together, or you don’t follow the recent history of Lebanon. Basically, if he hadn’t mentioned the word “dare”, it would be a somewhat valid statement, debatable but definitely not funny.
Now let me straight things out to Mr. Saniora and those of the like. Despite the bloody nature of the Israelis and their history of murder but to tell the truth, they have never been known to bite the hand that serves them tea in a time of crisis.
Perhaps, the Lebanese government should try to serve Hezbollah some tea and who knows, Hezbollah may stop “daring” to do what he did to Beirut.

“Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered,
that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside
them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of

is teaching about “Rules of Engagements” in the times of war.
“ Lo! Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As
often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that
they may taste the torment. Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise. “
“Therefore, when ye meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks and when ye have
caused a bloodbath among them....bind a bond firmly on them....”
“Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the
necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward
either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. ”
“They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be
upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them till they forsake
their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them
and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend nor hper from among
“Except those who seek refuge with a people between whom and you there is a
covenant, or (those who) come unto you because their hearts forbid them to make
war on you or make war on their own folk. Had Allah willed He could have given
them power over you so that assuredly they would have fought you. So, if they
hold aloof from you and wage not war against you and offer you peace, Allah
alloweth you no way against them. (90)
“Fight them until there is no dissension and the religion is entirely Allah's"
“And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah. But
if they cease, then lo! Allah is Seer of what they do.”
