Beware of Al Qaeda in Lebanon

Robert Fisk points out that the new UNIFIL is actually NATO in disguise, and is building a Green Zone-style fortress to protect itself from Al-Qaedaesque groups in Saida and Tripoli who are planning attacks. "So Hizbollah will be the most powerful defenders of the European armies in southern Lebanon. Now there's something to think about," Fisk writes.

Al Qaeda in Iraq website publishes statement from "Mujahedin in Lebanon", calling on Lebanese Sunnis to fight Hezbollah.
