Weirdest Dream lately :
I dreamed I was on the "other side" when my Dad was passing. I spoke to him and made sure he was okay. Then I woke, and knew he was gone. 30 minutes later, we got the call from the hospital saying that his blood pressure had crashed in the last 30 minutes.

What do they mean 'Threat to Peace'?

Well, how about this for example?
Israeli outposts shell surrounding Southern Lebanese territories while Israeli warplanes continue to violate Lebanon's sovereign air space.

NABATIEH: Violence erupted in the South on Tuesday, with several Israeli warplanes once more violating Lebanese airspace and Shebaa coming under fire from both tank and heavy artillery. An Israeli Mirkava tank in the Roueisat al-Alam outpost fired three 122-millimeter mortar shells at Sadana hill, located in northeast Shebaa and Kfar Shuba in the late morning.

The attack was preceded by artillery fire from the Ramta and Sahaqa outposts in the occupied Shebaa Farms toward the surrounding valleys and prairies.

Security sources in Marjayoun said the Israeli military had also increased activities between the Shebaa Farms and Syrian Golan Heights.

Meanwhile, Army Command announced six Israeli warplanes and two reconnaissance jets had violated Lebanese airspace over Nabatieh, Marjayoun, Arqoub and Khiam earlier in the morning. The jets returned to their base nearly two hours after having been reported to have crossed into Lebanese territory.

Four Israeli warplanes also violated Lebanese airspace Tuesday drawing anti-aircraft fire from the army.

Israeli soldiers fired three mortar rounds across the border in retaliation, with no reported casualties.

The Israeli jets broke the sound barrier as they swooped low over the southern port city of Tyre in the latest in a catalogue of violations that have drawn UN criticism.

Another two Israeli warplanes were spotted in the early afternoon coming from the sea off the coast of the northern city of Batroun, said an army statement. The jets hovered above the city before leaving some 15 minutes later.

The latest flyovers came amid Hizbullah celebrations after the resistance's landslide victory in parliamentary elections in the South.

Hizbullah leaders hailed the victory as a popular rebuff to American and French-led pressure for the disarmament of all militia on Lebanese soil.

The resistance has said it plans to continue its fight against Israel until the Jewish state relinquishes the disputed Shebaa Farms, a small plot of land seized from Syria during the 1967 Middle East war but now claimed by Lebanon with Damascus' blessing.

But Hizbullah's foreign relations chief Ali Darmush told a Paris news conference Monday the party would "not hand over its weapons even if Israel withdraws from the Shebaa Farms."

He cited the continued threat from Israeli violations of Lebanese airspace as the main reason for Hizbullah's rejection of calls to disarm.

In a statement addressed to United Press International, Darmush said: "France can play a positive role in Lebanese domestic affairs by encouraging officials to unite and proceed to true national reconciliation that protects Lebanon facing Zionist ambitions. Without the resistance Lebanon would return to the pre-liberation phase, meaning to before the withdrawal of Israeli troops from Lebanon in the summer of 2000."

During a press scrum following the statement, a reporter from the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot had attempted to pose a question to Darmush regarding prisoner swaps between Hizbullah and Israel, but was snubbed by the Hizbullah official.

The slight prompted the Israeli Press Association to release a statement criticizing Darmush's behavior as "xenophobic and racial," and expressed its disappointment that other journalists had not joined their Israeli colleague in walking out of the conference.
