Egypt Warns of War Between Israel and Lebanon

From The Jerusalem Post:

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit passed on messages to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and representatives of the other permanent UN Security Council members, warning that the current Israel-Lebanon tensions could deteriorate into an armed conflict, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, according to the radio station, Egyptian diplomats denied reports that Aboul Gheit had called Israel an enemy state in Beirut on Monday. They stressed that the foreign minister had said it was Lebanon that considered Israel an enemy state, not Egypt.

The latest tensions between Israel and Lebanon arose after reports surfaced in Kuwait’s Al-Rai newspaper that Syria had transferred Scud ballistic missiles to Hizbullah. Israel subsequently issued a stern warning that it would consider attacking both Syrian and Lebanese targets in response to a Scud attack on its territory.

  1. The prophecy that Damascus would one day be destroyed and no longer occupied, may be closer that we think.
