The French Win One


BEIRUT (Reuters) - A revised United Nations draft on Lebanon is expected on Friday and calls for a "progressive" Israeli withdrawal, a senior political Lebanese source said on Thursday.

"The Americans have moved their position. A deal with the French is very close in the next hours, but most likely on Friday," he told Reuters.

"The breakthrough is based on the inclusion in the call for a cessation of hostilities for a progressive Israeli withdrawal from Lebanese territory to go simultaneously with the deployment of the Lebanese army backed by reinforced U.N. peacekeepers."

Notice it says "The Ameericans moved their position." In other words, they caved, gave in, bent over, surrendered. And to the French, of all people.

It also says the UN - including the US - will call for Israel to stand down, and go home. So much for the fearless leader and his resolute support for Israel. So much for him never making military dicisions for Israel. A bunch of escargot-eaters made him blink!

But of course when the GOP Jews gather around the shalosh seudot table to tell over their myths, the story will be told another way. Israel's BFF will be remembered as the Guy Who Let Israel Do Whatever it Wanted, and once again Bill Clinton and/or his libido will be trotted out to take the blame for all of Israel woes.
