Michael Anthony Mansoor (5 April 1981 – 29 Sept 2006) Lebanese American Medal Of Honour (click here)
Without Hesitation: On this day on Sept 29 2006, Michael A. Monsoor a Navy SEAL would distinguish himself to be a true selfless hero and willingly gave his life to safeguard his fellow SEALs and would later be awarded the Medal of Honor. Monsoor’s position was one of protecting the two SEALs nearby on the roof from the access. An insurgent below hurled a grenade from the streets below. It hit Monsoor in the chest and bounced to the roof. Without a second’s hesitation, he yelled “Grenade!” and launched himself on top of it, shielding the others from the blast, taking the brunt of it himself. He was seriously injured and died less than 30 minutes later. The two SEALs on either side of him were injured but survived.

Lebanon to use wind energy by introducing windmill project Lebanon took its first step to introduce wind energy in the country, which aimed at reducing dependence on expensive forms of energy, the local newspaper Daily Star reported Friday on its website.
The report said that Lebanese Minister of Power and Hydraulic Resources Mohammed Fneish signed an agreement with Paris-based the French Global Wind Energy Company Thursday to implement a windmill project. Fneish said that the project “will pave the way for the introduction of the first windmill project in Lebanon,” adding that “we are pinning high hopes on energy rationing.”
According to the official, the agreement is part of the ministry’s plan for alternative energy, especially in light of higher oil prices.
The project will be carried out over the next seven months and an international tender will be issued soon to attract investors, said the report. Source: Xinhua
