As a Lebanese citizen, I find it sad to see how my country never changes. Every single Lebanese political party is backed by a different international player, and whenever the leader of this player comes to visit Lebanon, posters and propaganda decorate our streets. From the Saudi king Faycal to the American Hillary Clonton, going through the Iranian Ahmadinejad or the Egyptian Mubarak, the Lebanese need to start distancing themselves from those international players who only divide us. Ahmedinejad's visit is not wrong. What makes it dangerous is how biased his support for Lebanon is.
