Beirut video blog

Okay, one more visit to the middle east before I leave this topic for a while.  I noticed a featured video on YouTube was carrying a simple message: let’s ask for peace in the middle east.  So I did a response video which includes some of Mazen’s work from his blog at

Hope you enjoy it.

Is this turning into a video blog or what?  I haven’t even put all the YouTube videos I’ve done in the last week up here – they seemed a little too YT-centric and less relevant to this blog.  If you ever want to catch up with my YT videos, go to

I’m planning to do a few more Alan Jones videos this weekend so stay tuned!

    I can’t get over the incredibly one-sided posts from Americans on YouTube about the whole Israel/Palestine thing. They really do seem to have no concept that is was an American and British idea that kicked the whole thing off! “I know” says Churchill, “let’s turf a bunch of Arabs out of where they’ve lived for 2000 years or so and give it to the people who lived there before that!” “Good plan” says Roosevelt, “Let’s give America to Native Americans and Australia to Aboriginals while we’re at it!” Okay, I made that last part up, but you get the idea.

    I liked that one, but doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. It’s been brewing for decades and centuries now, and the area has always been on the Sword of Damocles.

    By the way, my own latest entry is a foul-mouthed anti-Republican diatribe. You might enjoy it.
