Lebanon’s new Prime Minister Fouad Siniora has been setting out his government’s plans. He defended Hizbollah’s role as a resistance force to the Israeli presence, and said he’d build strong ties with Syria and resolve the lingering border delays.

Explaining Hizbollah’s role, he said: “The government considers the resistance a natural and honest expression of the Lebanese people’s national rights to liberate their land and defend their honour against Israeli aggression and threats”.

    Lebanon should chang the reason to continue Hizballa as an armed resistence if the reason is only shabaa farms the do not be surprised if israel leaves asking Lebanon to diarm Hizballa, the reason for Hizballa melecia is the continued threat from Israel and will be diarmed when afull peace treaty signed between Israel /syria and Lebanon.
