By

..."slaughtering of civilians"; "seven invasions"; "Israel must pay compensation for its wanton destruction"; "Sheba Farms being turned over to the UN". Is this the leader of Lebanon that Israel is supposed to trust to enforce the draft UN Resolution meant to stop Hezbollah depredations, even though he ignored a previous declaration based on the same goal?
