Canadian-Israeli journalist and blogger Lisa Goldman travelled to Beirut last month to report for PJM on life in Lebanon a year after the war and returned shortly afterwards to film a story for Israel's Channel 10. Goldman wasn't surprised by the angry reaction to her reporting from Hezbollah's al-Manar station and al-Jazeera television.

This is the first in a series of her reports for PJM.
