A look at Lebanon

  • “Behold, I will liken you to a cedar in Lebanon, with fair branches and forest shade” (Ezekiel 31:3).

    Hanin Ghaddar provides a good overview of the situation in Lebanon after the visit of Ahmadinejad, and before the release of the verdict regarding who was responsible for the death of former Lebanon PM Rafiq Hariri.  It includes discussion of the Shia Sunni rivalry in Lebanon. 

    The article is relevant for thinking about what will happen in the border village of Ghajar; Israel has evidently decided to withdraw from the Northern part of the village – all rather confusing.  Predictably the Lebanaese are saying they are not satisfied with only this, while the Ghajar inhibitants seem totally bewildered.   The US, EU and UN seem to be happy with the Israeli move, if that is a good thing.
