...actually the irony is... and this is a hunch... but the irony is that this is very very good for Israel. Lebanon was plaid off as a victim in 2006. The idea that Lebanon and it's people is actually part of this insanity... is a reality, but the media plaid it off as untrue.
King Abdullah telephones Iranian president before scheduled visit to Lebanon, warns him not to cause irreversible damage.
Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz called on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad not to cause an irreversible situation during the his expected visit to Lebanon on Wednesday, Channel 10 reported Tuesday.
Abdullah made the comments during telephone conversation between the two leaders and told Ahmadinejad "we still need Lebanon."The US has expressed concern to the Lebanese government over Ahmadinejad's scheduled upcoming visit to Lebanon.
US State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley said that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman last month, telling him that Iran, through Hizbullah, threatens Lebanon's sovereignty.
Officials in Jerusalem have said that Lebanon, not Israel, would be the party to suffer most from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s scheduled visit next week to southern Lebanon.
“Lebanon is the primary victim, and if it wants to stop slipping into the jaws of the Iranian crocodile, it – and the moderate Arab world – should raise a strong voice and say this provocateur is not welcome,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Yossi Levy said.
