Lebanese President Michel Suleiman put his foot down
Lebanese leaders made sure the Ahmadinejad-Hizballah show was a flop
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 18, 2010

Despite Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad's efforts to ham up his groundbreaking visit to Lebanon last week, debkafile's military sources quote Western and Arab observers as summing it up as a dud.  The Lebanese president and chief of staff spoiled his plan for a grand display of hostile power on the border opposite Israel on Thursday, Oct. 10. The visitor had to submit to being escorted by Lebanese troops instead of Hizballah gunmen. Hizballah's Hassan Nasrallah kept to his bunker.

DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis October 14, 2010

The Netanyahu government chose silence in the face of the imperialist Shiite energy Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad exuded in his all-conquering visit to Lebanon. On his first day in Beirut he showed the world that Tehran calls the shots in Beirut - and that would be just for starters. debkafile's sources find in Israel's inaction today a regrettable analogy with the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's handover of Czechoslovak Sudetenland to Germany in 1938 so ushering in World War II.
