BEIRUT: Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt warned against an Israeli attack on Lebanon in light of Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu's speech which focused on the growing Iranian threat. Netanyahu's speech "could mean an aggression on Lebanon under the slogan of 'thwarting the Iranian threat."
Netanyahu said in his foreign policy speech that Israel currently faces three tremendous challenges: The Iranian threat, the financial crisis, and the promotion of peace.
Jumblatt called on Lebanese to "put aside the drama of the thrill of election victory of the March 14 Forces and gear up to face the challenges ahead of us and the great Israeli threat that was clearly reflected in Netanyahu's speech." - The Daily Star
