Yesterday, Friday, May9, Hezbollah frighters siezed control of much of western Beirut. My friends in Lebanon have told me that there is a big strike organized by the opposition party of the currently American backed government. Much of the transportation system,including the airport, and the telecommunication system has been shut down by this strike to protest rising fuel prices and the minimum wage. Schools and businesses remain open. Roads to Beirut are blocked.
So please pray for an immediate cease fire and for peace in Lebanon!
