Lebanese blogger: Ramadan and Rosh Hashanah greetings

Lebanese Political Journal has a fascinating back and forth in the "talkbacks" under what seems to have started off with a brief - and pretty unbelieveable - post, offering Ramadan and Rosh Hashana greetings.

Worth taking a look, and offering your own.
Ramadan Kareem!
Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Last year, a Jewish friend of mine in Beirut was fasting over Yom Kippur, which occured in the middle of Ramadan. He decided to break his fast with Hassan Nasrallah and his supporters at an Hezbollah iftar. However, in the middle of Nasrallah's speech, he was accused of being a Jew by the head of security and interrogated. He claimed he was Christian. They let him go after a long haranguing. He left the event nonplused.
If LPJ have the collective huevos to write what they do against Hizbullah, we should support them, IMHO.

Having worked in construction with Muslim Israelis and Palestinians over the years, and being a chronic fast sufferer (wanna like-to-die nausea, shakes and headaches - don't ask...), I appreciate the rigors of month-long Ramadan, as well as the upcoming Yom Kippur.

So, G'mar Chatima Tova (May you be inscribed for a good fate) and and "T'zom kal," an easy fast to all.
