    Your article is very clear, informative and interesting. I learned a lot from it/you. Lebanon is in fact a fascinating society - such complexity! We all know about the dangers from Iran/Hizbollah and Syria, but one must not forget that first and foremost there are ordinary people in the cedarland that wants to have normal lives. And Mr. Mikati, who is a businessman, wants stability. As a businessman, he hates uncertaintes and disorder. At the same time, let me remind you what Nachik Navot said in an interview in Haaretz some time ago: "That Lebanon will continue to be a problem for Israel and that the reality in the Middle East is dictated by changing interests rather than sentiments." Example: We just was how Jumblatt supported Nasrallah. But that doesn´t mean that Walid loves Hassan Nasrallah. It is about changing interests, not sentiments.And if it changed yesterday, than it will change tomorrow. Listen to Navot (And Barel). And I might add: There can´t be any inpunity for the murderers of Hariri. So Mr. Mikati has to accept that the tribunal will publish the indictments. And then what? God knows....
