Just over 30 years ago Lebanon still had a majority of 70 % Christians. Now you have about 30 % Christians and they have to fear for their lives.
Jihad is the pinnacle of Islam and incumbent on every male and female. Those who die in jihad have their place in paradise secured. The Koran commands Muslims to wage war until all religion belongs to Allah…
Today’s attack took place in the village of Ein Alaq, just south of the town of Bikfaya, some 30 miles northeast of the Lebanese capital.

BEIRUT, Lebanon, Feb. 13 â€” A day before Lebanon prepared to mark the second anniversary of the assassination of its former prime minister, Rafik Hariri, three people were killed Tuesday and 19 others seriously wounded when two buses were bombed as they ferried passengers to work, to shop and to bible study classes.
For a country so fragile and on edge because of its internal political struggles, the bombers managed to escalate tensions, not by attacking government ministers or the politically outspoken. Instead, the targets were passengers who paid the equivalent of about 80 cents to pile into the mini-buses for the half-hour ride to Beirut.
