Hezbollah-backed candidate for prime minister Najib Mikati clinches majority for premiership, as Lebanese parliamentarians headed for the second day of consultations to elect the country's new prime minister.
Lebanon's prime minister has arrived in Turkey to oversee the signing of a series of cooperation agreements, including defense and the lifting of entry visas.
Yes they are in NATO... but still... IMO they will do nothing, but will not allow the US to use their territory to bomb Lebanon or Syria or Iran. They may let arms smugglers go through... while saying they see nothing...
Violence broke out Tuesday in northern Lebanon as thousands of supporters of acting Prime Minister Saad Hariri gathered in Tripoli for what they had called a peaceful "day of rage" protest.
Demonstrators attacked a truck belonging to the Al Jazeera news channel and set it on fire. Protesters also burned pictures of former prime minister Najib Mikati, a Hezbollah-backed candidate who is set to be nominated Tuesday to replace Mr. Hariri.
On November 1, 2010, the Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, which is close to Hizbullah and Syria, reported that on October 28, 2010, Hizbullah conducted an "electronic and on-the-ground simulation" of a takeover of Lebanon – an operation that is to be carried out in the event that the international tribunal for the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Al-Hariri indicts Hizbullah.
According to the report, the drill included the deployment of forces countrywide within two hours, the cordoning off of extensive areas of the country, the arrest of wanted individuals, and the seizure of ports and border crossings.
The day after Al-Akhbar reported the story, the London-based Saudi daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat stated that the simulation was an illustration of a practical plan by Hizbullah, Amal and other pro-Syrian forces to take over Beirut and other parts of the country.
. . . Syria wants desperately to halt the United Nations special tribunal on the Hariri assassination.

Nothing about a terror organization overthrowing a government is neither funny nor amusing.
