    This is quite a cynical projection a small official mood in the Palestinian territories (Fatah old guard) but it certainly does not reflect the public mood which is overwhelmingly sympathetic to Hezbollah as is the case in Arab and Islamic countries throughout the wolrd. It is possible that the government of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan as well as other governments in the region maybe supportive of the Israeli action while paying only lip service to the plight of the Lebanese civilian population however, the mood across the region is tremendously hostile to Israel and the US. It has become clear to everyone that there is a choice between accepting the so called peace on Israeli terms or suporting the so called resistance in Lebanon and Palestine. I doubt it very much that there are many people in the Middle East who are prepared to accept Peace on Israeli terms which means keeping large chunks of the West Bank or what Israelis like to call the convergence plan.
