Lebanon Today

Can anyone remember the last time this many Arabs were in the street, and not a single one of them was either (a) burning a US flag, (b) burning the American president in effigy, (c) shouting "Death to America!, or (d) all of the above? Forget that....can anyone remember the last time this many Arabs were in the street protesting against their own government?

Something is going on here. And like the Iraqi election, it is an unmitigated good thing, and who knows where it could lead. These are courageous people. I hope my fellow Democrats can appreciate that.
