Syria has massed thousands of troops along its border with northern Lebanon in what officials in Beirut fear is a prelude to the first incursion since Syrian forces pulled out three years ago.
Although Damascus insists that its forces are conducting an antismuggling operation, the Lebanese Government is eyeing the moves with unease, believing that the unusual scale of the deployment has more to do with tensions between the two countries over recent sectarian clashes in northern Lebanon.

Yeah, despite your dense beliefs that these countries are all somehow in an Islamic alliance against Israel, they actually have political differences and so much so that it comes to potential war between them. Just because those people are "over there" does in no way make them "bad people" or all for one against Israel. I blame our education department .
