    For records, posts 11 and 12 are not mine. Tamir, I don't know what is exactly your backround, but you will find in lebanon people that are pro palestinian cause. You will be very surprized but we are the majority in Lebanon. The main question in Lebanon is how much are we ready to destroy our country for your cause. In the 1970s, some of us believed that we should go in a full war to help you. Since, things have changed. Syria did not fight since 1973 and are begging for peace. Egypt and Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel. And Last but not least, we felt betrayed by Arafat when he left Beirut in 1982, leaving us alone in face of IDF. (By the way I was in beirut in the syummer of 1982).Nevertheless, we remained pro palestinian cause. What changed, is that we consider that we should give political support not military. We cannot be the only Arab country to give military support. Hope this helps.
