This video was taken when Arjen Robben won a penalty against Mexico. I hope this guy doesn’t get a heart attack by the time the world cup ends!

تحيا المهرجانات فلنسقط “داعش”

…فكيف بالأحرى القرار بإبقاء المواعيد كلّها بعد تفشّي الجراد الأسود، وانتشار رسل الموت الأعمى؟ إنّه حسم مسبق للمواجهة بين الحضارة والبربريّة، بين صورة المجتمع المنفتح المتعدد الهادئ العقلاني الذي يتذوّق الإبداع ويقدّر الجمال، وبين الانحطاط بأبشع صوره نتيجة القهر والانغلاق والديكتاتوريّة والاستلاب الحضاري. المجتمع مطالب اليوم بخوض المعركة في مواجهة الظلاميّة، وإحدى الجولات الحاسمة في هذه المواجهة ضد التتار تدور في البترون وجونية والزوق وإهدن وأسواق بيروت والأشرفيّة، فضلاً عن بعلبك وبيبلوس وبيت الدين. علينا جميعاً أن نرتاد هذه المهرجانات، ليس فقط من أجل المتعة الفنية والثقافيّة، بل كمن يذهب إلى صناديق الاقتراع. لندعم الثقافة بوجه الانحطاط. تحيا المهرجانات، تسقط «داعش»!

Off To Ayia Napa

I am currently in Cyprus and should be back on Sunday night. One of my closest friends is getting married next week so we’ve decided to go to Aiya Napa to celebrate his last single days in style. I’ll be online all the time but won’t be writing any posts before Sunday night or even Monday.
Until then, I’ll be posting pictures on my Instagram so add me if you aren’t already following me. [LeNajib]
