Remember when Lebanon wasn't so anti-Israel?

Remember the days when there were rumors that Walid Jumblatt was rumored to be meeting with Israelis? Well, those days are gone.
Interviewer: "In the event of such a confrontation, would your political movement support Hizbullah, regardless of whether it is right or wrong?"

Walid Jumblatt: "We will support Lebanon in its defense against Israel. This is not an issue of supporting Hizbullah. We will confront the common enemy. No more and no less."

Interviewer: "Does this mean that you will open Mount Lebanon, and let Hizbullah to deploy its weapons there in the event of a confrontation?"

Walid Jumblatt: "I believe that Hizbullah is savvy enough not to deploy its missiles everywhere. Secondly, the confrontation would be in places known to Hizbullah. Thirdly, we will open up our homes – as all the Lebanese did in 2006 – in the event of a stream of refugees as a result of the Israeli strikes."

Interviewer: "But you would not provide logistic or military support?"

Walid Jumblatt: "This is not a matter to be discussed on TV."
Smart diplomacy brings results. What could go wrong?
