Syrian Shame

Withdrawal on Monday

Syrian Leader Assad announced the withdrawal of Syrian troops from Lebanon to the Syrian border on Monday. But, Hizbollah in support of Syria calls for a peaceful rally in Beirut on Tuesday…

The Shi’ite Muslim group, which has the largest following in the country and is the only one with weapons, has in the past steered clear of plunging into internal Lebanese politics or flexing its political muscles against domestic rivals.

But after Syria announced Saturday a two-phased total troop withdrawal from Lebanon, the staunchly anti-Israeli group entered the domestic political ring facing the opposition.

The group’s chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah warned that Syria’s pullout under intense global pressure could spell chaos for Lebanon and push it toward peace with Israel.

Heaven forbid!

…A pivotal week for Lebanon.
