Your North, My South

I will hold out until later tonight for a full reading on today's border situation.

But I expect things to calm down tonight.


Feel free to vent here.

I hope that the Lebanese take this opportunity to see that Hezbollah is only looking out for their own agenda and doesn't care what is in Lebanon's best interest. They were not "resisting" anything on behalf of Lebanon by kidnapping the soldiers. Instead they were working for foreign overlords, and have really jeopardized a beautiful and exhausted country by causing fear of reprisals and effectively halting much-needed summer tourism. I pray that there will be a peaceful resolution, but my fear is that it would take the govt. standing up to Hezbollah.

Very true, vox, Hezbollah has lost the rock star status it had immediately following the Israeli withdrawal in 2000, but it still carries some support I think "for old times sake." I haven't been back in 2 years so I'll trust your word on current views if you're in Lebanon, but I remember very well what it was like to visit Baalbeck and see the Hebollah signs on every post, to see the stickers on the cars all over Southern Lebanon, and more recently to see the numbers that a Hezbollah rally can turn out during the Cedar Revolution and other occasions. I've heard a lot of sectarian resentment from friends and family still in Lebanon (Ras Beirut) aimed at Hezbollah for what has happened, but I still think many in Lebanon think not supporting Hezbollah means supporting Israel for all of its actions in Lebanon in the past. Yalla, it's not that simple...
