Let us compare the Israeli and US initial statements about Ahmadinejad's visit. 1. ISREAL: "'Lebanon has joined the axis of extreme nations which object to the peace process and support terror,' said a senior Israeli official". Of course this is nonsensical. How can the visit prove that Lebanon acquires Iran's views? Did China acquire Israel's Western views when PM Olmert visited them? Every thinking person can tell that this statement is just foolish, so either the "Israeli official" is a moron or just a bad liar.// 2. US: "We reject any efforts to destabilize or inflame tensions within Lebanon... We would hope that no visitor would do anything or say anything that would give cause to greater tension or instability in that country." Now this is a reasonable statement. The visit may strengthen Hizballah politically and increase the well-known sectarian tension inside Lebanon. Why does the US respect the truth while Israel has no regard for it? Why? Perhaps the "official" comes from Lieberman's Foreign Ministry, an Orwellian "Ministry of Truth", as in the good old Soviet Union..
