    Turkey has joined the regional effort to keep Lebanon calm. Saudi and Syria launched the effort last summer. Hariri is going to Tehran to enlist Iran to urge restraint upon Hisbollah. Syria has already made it very clear it will not support any move by Hisbollah against the Lebanese government. The noises emanating from Israel coupled with the sudden Israeli evacuation of Ghajar followed immediately by Netanyahu's threat to not allow Hisbollah to 'occupy' it has convinced everyone in the region that Israel will seize upon the Special Tribunal indictments to invade Lebanon. Right now it is uncertain whether Hisbollah might destabilize Lebanon but it seems likely that Netanyahu might. Hopefully saner minds will prevail than those who wish israel to be in a state of eternal war. Only the Israeli right sees any benefit in eternal chaos in Lebanon and eternal war for Israel.
