But deep down, he really, really wants peace! “‘No to US aid with conditions,'” from the Jerusalem Post, August 11 (thanks to Choi):
BEIRUT — Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr Wednesday said he would reject any American military assistance to the Lebanese army if it comes with conditions that the weapons not be used against Israel.
Murr was commenting on the decision by a US congressman to suspend $100 million of military aid to Lebanon over concerns the weapons could be turned on Israel and that Hezbollah may have influence over the Lebanese army.
He stated that those who want to help the Lebanese army but place conditions on how their funds or weapons are used, should keep the money….
Sounds like a plan!
