Welcome Abu Kais

I’m going to be out of town for a little while and will probably not be able to blog at my usual pace. Last time I was out of town, when I drove from the East Coast to the West Coast, I convinced myself that I could still keep up this Web site, but I couldn’t. So I won’t make the same mistake now.

Abu Kais, who writes the terrific blog From Beirut to the Beltway, will help me out. Good timing, too, since Lebanon is (tragically) a “story” again. Abu Kais is a Shia from South Lebanon, from Hezbollah country. He is not, however, even remotely a Hezbollah partisan.

Please welcome him and enjoy his reports. And be nice in the comments.

Thanks, Abu Kais, for lending a hand.

Welcome Abu Kais,
Haderteh lebaneneh kamen w min el jnoub,from roum, up in jezzin area and my mother is from sour, hizbollah stronghold.
So yes you guessed it (dad christian and mom Shia), and no that does not make me a Aounist..ahahahha

ahla w sahla fik.

Abu Kais--I already read your blog, but I look forward to reading whatever it is you plan on posting here as well.

أهلا و سهلا بأبو قيس

AK - if anyone is capable of filling these shoes, it's you.

Posted by: The Perpetual Refugee at November 27, 2006 07:46 AM

Welcome Abu Kais.
I'm Israeli. I want to know what Lebanese who are not Hezbollah wish and pray for. I want peace in the Middle East for all. May I see it in my lifetime.

Posted by: Anat at November 27, 2006 08:39 AM

Thanks guys (and MJT), I appreciate it! I'll post something soon. Cheers.

Posted by: Abu Kais at November 27, 2006 10:17 AM

Anat echoes my sentiments to all Lebanese of non-Hizbullah or Hizbullah-like groups.

I wish you peace and offer my friendship.

Unsound diaspora -- with that mix, you are undoubtely American.

Abu Kais, welcome.

Welcome, AK...

Looking forward to a double-whammy from you, here and on your own blog :)

(Uhm...That didn't come out right, now did it!)

Posted by: bad vilbel at November 27, 2006 10:35 AM

Abu Khais, a Lebanese shia who is not a Hezbollah partisan. Ah, so you're the one :)

Posted by: NoSleep at November 27, 2006 10:37 AM

Welcome, Mr Kais.

I've always had great respect for your journalism.
