An-Nahar: Hezbullah tried to assassinate Jumblatt

Israel Radio reported this morning in the name of the Lebanese newspaper An-Nahar that Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt (pictured, left) canceled a trip to Egypt last month because he learned that Hezbullah planned to assassinate him as he departed from Beirut Airport. As you may recall, one of the things that set off the current crisis was the activities of the Hezbullah-affiliated director of security at Beirut's airport.

hi Carl,

Caroline Glick got it right in her piece today, How Lebanon was Lost.

Barry Rubin also got it right Lebanon to West: Wake Up Fast!

And Debbie Schlussel tells us that Iranian Revolutionary Guards have been caught fighting for Hizbollah.

What does this tell us about the world leaders> They're all politically correct, appeasing schmucks of the first degree. If something's not done about the situation in Lebanon soon (and I think the US should step in), the fight will spill over into Israel, because right now Iran and Syria are on the doorstep.

No one wants to deal with Lebanon. Its a tangle of religious and ethnic clans have been warring for decades. Half a century ago, Lebanon was the only Arab country with a Christian majority. That's now gone and even the majority Muslims are at loggerheads over which of them get to rule the country.
