    By arming Hizbollah they achieve this. Lebanon achieves it too.Israel wants its neighbours utterly defenseless? Of course they do, but they can't always have everything so easy. Those who blather on about Lebanese rights should rack their tiny heads and remember that when Israel rained terror on Lebanon, its children and its infrastructure, Lebanon rallied to Hizbollah. Even the Christian and Sunni Lebanese. So before talking about Lebanese interests, they can reflect that Lebanon decides its interests and if they do not coincide with Israel's that's probably for the greater good but certainly for the good of Lebanon. After all those who can still remember Sharon will know that the formation of a fascist [phalange] dictatorship was what Israel wanted for Lebanon not so long ago. As for the US whining on about Hizbollah[in response to Israeli behests] it's worth reading this current editorial in Lebanon's media outlet 'The Daily Star'[no friend of Hizbollah]: "the region's leaders, and most importantly their people, will resentfully turn their back on US policy for as long as it only shows half hearted commitments to security and human rights in the region. That is, blind support for Israeli aggression will only push regional powers together, and as long as Iran and Syria share a common threat, the US can forget about driving them apart ". http://www.dailystar.com.lb/article.asp?edition_id=1&article_id=112171&categ_id=17
