Spirit of America: Lebanon

Lebanese independence project

lebanon_red_lg.gifReceived an email from Spirit of America founder and CEO Jim Hake (I know it was written personally to me because it opened with “I’d like to ask your help as a blogger extraordinaire.”…I mean, who else could that even apply to?).

SoA has set up a new blog (at the link above) and blogger Michael Totten will be writing. They’re on the ground in Lebanon right now, trying to assist the citizens of “Tent City” which have been leading the charge for freedom and democracy in Lebanon, including organizing the massive protests a few weeks ago.

They need our help to sustain their struggle. Our project is raising
support for them (food, shelter, water, etc.) While I’m here we’re
looking into other things to help (e.g., Internet access at tent city)
People can go here to help: http://www.spiritofamerica.net/projects/96. 100% of all donations go directly to the things that will help the pro-democracy demonstrators.

Syria is publicly acting like it is playing nice and withdrawing. Behind the scenes they are destabilizing the country, delaying the elections and intimidating the opposition. The good guys in Lebanon need our support. [emphasis mine]

The Syrians wouldn’t do that, would they?

Murdoc Online will be making a contribution. I encourage others to at least consider doing the same.
