No Veto for Hizballah Says Lebanon's Victorious Moderate Leader

By Barry Rubin

Lebanese Prime Minister, and head of the winning March 14 coalition in the recent elections, Fuad Siniora, says his party won't give Hizballah a veto power in the next government. Prediction: Hizballah isn't going to like this. And when it doesn't like something, it resorts to violence. Watch developments in Lebanon carefully as the struggle to form a government is going to be critical. And will the United States and Europe support the March 14 coalition, or rush to "engage" Hizballah, steps which will strengthen the radical Islamist terrorist group, and its Syrian and Iranian sponsors?
