Three men believed to be Australian Islamic State jihadists have been captured at gunpoint in Lebanon.
The Australian-Lebanese dual nationals were arrested in Beirut after a series of raids conducted earlier this week by the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah’s militant wing.
It is believed a Syrian born IS member, who was captured last year, admitted to working with the three after an interrogation, News Corp reports
The trio reportedly do not wish to return to Australia.
Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said the government has the power to strip dual nationals fighting overseas of their Australian citizenship and will do so if warranted.
“We will look very carefully at what those three have been doing and of course give them a very fair hearing but we will take action, if necessary, to protect Australians from potential terrorists,” he told the Nine Network.
Justice Minister Michael Keenan has declined to comment directly on the case but yesterday met with Lebanese...

A decade ago, while studying at business school in San Francisco, Fadi BouKaram started feeling homesick for the sunbaked hills of his native Lebanon. He typed “Lebanon” into Google Maps — and was stunned to find himself looking not at the Middle East, but at Lebanon, Oregon, a mere nine-hour drive from his apartment. He was puzzled: There was a U.S. Lebanon? Could there be more?
Another quick search led him to Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Then to Lebanon, Kentucky. Altogether, he found more than 50 Lebanons in the United States. The reason, of course, is that the word “Lebanon” appearsmore than 70 times in the Old Testament. What, BouKaram wondered, if one day he visited all of them?
Ten years later, this germ of an idea had landed him in a police station in Albuquerque, New Mexico, chasing a...

Jordan has warned Lebanon of a potential Israeli strike in the near future, the Jordanian newspaper Assabeel reported yesterday.
The paper reported the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper saying that Jordan warned Lebanon about the expected Israeli strike on the margins of the Arab League Summit which took place at the end of March.
The newspaper noted that the Jordanian warning was not the only one, but global superpowers and UN Security Council members also expressed similar fears to Lebanon.
Those powers called for the country to avoid any arbitrary military action in the south, referring to Hezbollah whose positons in Syria had been exposed to several Israeli strikes.
Al-Hayat said Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri had travelled to the south of the country to meet with Hezbollah in an effort to ease tensions.

Racism (maybe less in radical Islam)
Belief that they are superior over "the other" check
Both strictly adhere to their holy texts while conveniently ignoring the parts about love and acceptance check
Sexuality is sinful check
Anti science check (also surprisingly maybe a little less in islam)
Belief that the world is a degenerate place and they need to protect their "culture" check
Belief that their ideals should be the law of the land check
Honestly the only difference between the two is that alt right, fascists, neo Nazis, nationalists, far right, extreme right, right wing Christians, (whatever label you feel comfortable with placing on yourself!) seem less vulnerable to explosives lol ^_^
14 district election law on proportional.
No sectarian quota and who ever comes comes.
Then a senate with a rotation of catholic, orthodox and druze sects for 2 years each.
2 shia, 2 sunni and 2 druze.
2 maronites, 2 orthodox, 1 catholic and 1 Armenian.
Nothing in the house gets passed without 2/3 approval.
The President chooses 4 out of the 12 members of the senate.
Then comes decentralization.
Sounds good to me.
It has been a trend specially with the european parties to label them as extreme right, such as Le pen and wilders in the netherlands, is this a way to shame them and spread false propaganda, traditionnaly extreme right are moevements like fascism and the Nazi party; that called for or perpetrated genocide , ethnic clensing and racial superiority, yet none of the new popular right wing parties call for anything close to these

In May 17, 1983 Lebanon signed a peace treaty with Israel. Consequently, anti-peace agents started terrorizing anyone who may approach the subject of peace and coexistence with Israel. Since then, all we have in Lebanon and Syria is war. This war will not end the existence of Israel. It is a war that is making our people immigrants and refugees. It is a war that is self-destruction to us the people. Is it realistic today to assume that we as a people of Lebanon can continue living in war, or should agents of peace start the courageous process of peace activism that would build our countries by the principle of cooperation and coexistence.

Beirut: Lebanon is the healthiest Arab country, according to the Bloomberg 2017 Healthiest Country Index.
While Italy came in first among the 163 ranked countries, Lebanese came in at 32, perhaps because of its similar Mediterrean cuisine offerings.
The renowned Lebanese cuisine includes an abundance of grains and the traditional anise-based drink known as Arak.
Moreover, and with limited consumption of animal fats, Lebanese cuisine uses copious amounts of olive oil, lemon juice and garlic, all important components of a healthy diet.
Aside from its cuisine, Lebanon provides excellent health care—boasting an impressive 9 medical schools for a country of only 8 million.
Around 350 physician graduates enter the Lebanese labour market each year, with 4,581 doctors registered with the Lebanese Order of Physicians (LOP) between 2000 and 2014 in Beirut alone.
According Antoine Boustany, the head of the Order, Lebanon fielded one physician for every 350 citizens, way ahead of the...

Socialism is like any other good religion
It's based on poisonous mythical views detached from reality and is religiously followed closely by masses of delusional believers
Through the ages socialism has stood strong tho it had shape-shifted in name and location.. from pure genocidal marxism that evolved to Stalinism to the more mentally deranged hypocritical western socialism espoused by the school of Frankfurt, passing by the lovely Mao version in china that had obliterated every tree, dog and person and of course Chegevara's romantic homicidal terrorism
There arent many things you can count on in life, but you can count on socialism with the following aspects:
-it will always attract beta cuck males with self esteem issues and a grudge against others
-it will ever create larger anonymous groups of said cuck males who will blend together as the ultimate cuck swarm to use violence to create social unrest with a few men-wannabe hippy dyke women between them a la chegevara or...
