A blog on the current crises in the Middle East and news accounts unpublished by the US press. Daily timeline of events in Iraq as collected from stories and dispatches in the French and Italian media: Le Monde (Paris), Il Corriere della Sera (Milan), La Repubblica (Rome), L'Orient-Le Jour (Beirut) and occasionally from El Mundo (Madrid).
In a third incident, 12 Israeli jets feigned a bombing raid on the French at Deir Kifain in southern Lebanon. The computer-controlled French batteries prepared to launch their missiles, aborted at the last second as Zion's flyboyz pulled away. Back in Paris, the French government summoned Israeli Ambassador Daniel Shek to give account. Ambassador Shek, as expected, denied that the incident occurred.
