Iran and Syria using Palestinians to foment instability?

WorldNetDaily.com reports today on an interview with Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt in which Jumblatt accuses Iran and Syria of using Hamas and other 'Palestinian' terror groups to foment instability in moderate Arab countries like Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt.

"The Iranians are trying to use some part of Hamas and other Palestinian groups to threaten the Lebanese independence at same time [as threatening] Jordan and Egypt. The Iranians, with their expansionist souls, are trying to use all kinds of groups, including Hamas, to destabilize the area," said Jumblatt, speaking to WND and ABC Radio's John Batchelor on Batchelor's national radio program.


Last week, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1680, which calls on Syria to recognize Lebanese independence, establish formal diplomatic relations with Beirut and demarcate the common border.

Within hours of the resolution's passage, Palestinian groups allied with Syria attacked a Lebanese army patrol unit, sparking violent clashes in eastern Lebanon.
