Synopsis: Lebanon is a small dot in the Arabian Peninsula. It's a beautiful country. Beirut was once called the Paris of the East and it becomes a resort for the world jet setter. But the country also serves as a barometer of the never-ending conflicts between Israel and the other Arab countries. South Lebanon is a border to Israel and it's an open area for battle between the Hezbollah and the Israeli troops. The border area called blue line is a hotbed for attack. Syekh Abbad Tomb, Fatima Gate, Ghajar, and Litani River are places prone to conflict. The agricultural and fertile Chebaa area is vied by Israel, Lebanon and Syria. South Lebanon is also a strategic place for Palestine refugees. A citizen in South Lebanon once said that the conflict between Israel and Lebanon is eternal. Hezbollah wants to annihilate Israel while Israel wants to uproot Hezbollah completely. "We kill each other though we were brothers." Reading the book is like observing a conflict in a beautiful country in the Middle East. The Israel-Lebanon conflict is unique because the feud is a heritage of their civilization. The writer is a staff of Intelligent Assessment UNIFIL, a mission for peace. He had a first hand experience of the border conflict and shared his experience in a book, to take readers to see it from up close. (http://www.gramediainternational.com/book/detail/9789792252699)
