I've discovered recently FlyerTalk where people all around the world, frequent flyers, give advice on plane travel.
One of them lives in a Kibbutz, on the Israeli-lebanon border. Another in Downtown Beirout. They've started a thread giving people news about where they are and what's up.
The thread turned into an incredible exchange of messages between friends, where you realize people live there who only wish for peace. It gives a incredibly human side to a horrible situation.
It's all here: Go and read.
