Reading this morning’s New York Times, it looks like Israeal and Lebanon/Hezbollah are going to continue fighting. This is too bad. I do not understand the dynamics of the situation very well. Why does Lebanon allow Hezbollah to fight Israel from their Southern border?
When I was in Turkey in 1993 and 1994 I tried to go to Beirut. But I could not find a way to get there. My understanding of it is that Beirut was a very beautiful city at one time where many European tourists came for vacation, and it was more or less destroyed during the Lebanese civil war.
