Good Morning, Sunshine

I wake up to a lovely sun rise; summer is in time. And while the city is still asleep, I see we have our very first visitors of the day.
Gooooood Mooooorningggg Beeeiiiirruuuuuuuuttttttt!!!!
Nobody circles Beirut like the Israelis do; always in pairs. UN security council resolution 1701, passed following the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war, forbids Israeli planes from flying over Lebanon. But what is a UN security council resolution to an Israeli? They violate Lebanese space on an almost daily basis. ‘Andrea Tenenti, a spokesman for the UN forces in Lebanon, Unifil, confirmed that Israeli forces had continued to violate Lebanese airspace, but said this was routine.’ (source) And after all, aren’t we terrorists? So it’s okay.
