Lebanese army under orders not to stop weapons shipments

We have known for a while what Time Magazine confirmed last week: that Hezbullah has re-armed and replaced all the weapons they used or lost in this past summer's war. I assumed that this was done under the noses of UNIFIL and the Lebanese army, that the Lebanese army was powerless to stop it, and that UNIFIL would not stop it unless the Lebanese army asked that it be stopped. There's apparently a bit more to it than that. This is from Middle East Newsline:
In a briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, [Israeli Chief of Staff Dan. CiJ] Halutz said the Lebanese Army has been cooperating with Hizbullah rearmament effort. The general said Lebanese military units have been under orders not to block weapons shipments from Syria.
If any of you are reading this in Lebanon, please blame your government - and not mine - if your infrastructure gets destroyed again six months from now.
