I'm back from London, where I was uncharacteristically cut off from news and internet access. I need to catch up on things before posting much on Lebanon, but I will say now that it sounds like Israel is losing this war and knows it. Yesterday in Heathrow I saw a BBC report that Israel was putting Shebaa Farms on the table in negotiations. The Qana disaster speaks for itself. Israel's assault on Lebanon looks to end up as a significant disaster, both for itself and Lebanon. Despite my views on the Arab-Israeli conflict, if I were Israeli I'd be thinking seriously about trying to bring Netanyahu back because the current crop of national leaders seems downright incompotent.
