Trip pix - 4th set

Here the 4th set of the trip pix (link)
They are taken in Jibraltar, Cadiz, and Lisbon.

The apes in the rock of Jibraltar and also the fascinating view on top of the rock were my favorites. On top of the rock you have Spain in one side and Morocco (only 13 Km away on the other side of the sea) on the other side.

I was so touched by seeing how the apes protect their babies and their families that I had a hard time stopping my tears while taking their pictures.

Cadiz was small. Lisbon was clean and pretty with some very yummy Lisboa custard cakes! :)

it's all Iran's problem in Lebanon. Shame on them. Instead of spending money on their own citizens, they have been making Hezboullah rich. read this:

The English portion of an Asharq Al-Awsat ( http://www.asharqalawsat.com/english/news.asp?section=1&id=5651) article reports:
"The source said more than 3,000 Hezbollah members have undergone training in Iran, which included guerrilla warfare, firing missiles and artillery, operating unmanned drones, marine warfare and conventional war operations. He said they have also trained 50 pilots for the past two years. According to the source, Hezbollah currently possesses four types of surface-to-surface missiles, some of which extend to a distance of 150 kilometers."

But the Arabic version of the piece is, as usual, much more detailed: the 200 Iranian Revolutionary Guards have been stationed in Lebanon since 1990. They have married Shia Lebanese women, mostly "Hezbollah widows" and have changed their names to Lebanese names. They installed over twenty fixed rocket bases in the Bekaa Valley and provided Hezbollah with mobile bases to launch rockets. Furthermore a secret elite force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard composed of about twenty men is watching the Israel Defense Forces' every move with very sophisticated high-tech material and then deciding on the targets to hit inside Israel.

Dear Peace,
You think people don't know about these? Everyone knows how Hezbollah is supported. At the end, the civilians pay the price.

I pray for peace.
Cheers,
