Perhaps Israel needs to get over itself and realize that it isn't news that Hezbollah is part of the political process; in fact it is part of the DEMOCRATIC political process, much like Hamas. And it is a player en par and furthermore representative of many more Lebanese than Druze leader Walid Jumblatt. You can continue to try and broker deals with the puppets who enjoy less than half the support of their constituent populations, but this indicates that you 1) do not want peace, and 2) are too arrogant to see what it would take. Peace is made with one's enemies. Furthermore, the conference in France is about internal Lebanese issues and not -- God forbid-- about Israel's security. A serious attempt to resolve the internal deadlock in Lebanon CAN ONLY HAPPEN WITH HEZBOLLAH'S PARTICIPATION. And duh, Iran represents Hezbollah's interests in Lebanon and vice versa. Every one of the pathetic sectarian parties is represented by outside powers. Always has been and sadly always will be.
