Their View: Lebanon needs to identify Hezbollah as its enemy
Tony Blair knew he was walking into the lion's den when he visited Beirut.
It took courage to face angry crowds who blame him personally for the Israeli bombs that killed Lebanese innocents.
But the Prime Minister was right as well as brave.
Israel is fighting for its life. It must be allowed to defend itself.
Lebanon's fragile government deserves credit for standing up to naked Syrian intimidation.
But it also shares power with Hezbollah - a terrorist outfit bought and paid for by Iran.
Hezbollah abused its position by raining deadly missiles on Israeli citizens who are just as innocent as those in Beirut.
Those calculating killers - not Israel - are the ones to blame.
If Iran wins its struggle to wipe Israel off the map, they will not simply destroy the only genuine democracy in the Middle East.
They will topple “moderate” regimes like Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia and seize control of the Arab world.
Lebanon has nothing to gain from such an outcome.
Its citizens must resist the temptation to act as “victims” - and kick out the parasites of Hezbollah.
