Mubarak Says Watch Lebanon
By Micah Halpern

Saturday December 9, 2006

I've Been Thinking:

When the leader of one Arab country makes an observation about another Arab country, I pay careful attention.

While on tour in France Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak of Egypt took the opportunity to talk about Lebanon.
Mubarak made reference to the massive Hezbollah rallies taking place in Beirut. Mubarak expressed genuine concern that these rallies could turn violent and if they do turn violent it could subvert and even destroy Lebanon.

Mubarak was particularly concerned about the impact of "outside influences."
In his interview on French TV-3 he said: "There is also the risk of foreign interference in these protests. That could result in very serious confrontations and even lead to the destruction of Lebanon."

This is as clear as an Arab leader will ever get.
Translation: "we must stop Syria."
