The Maronites

See bullet #1 under my ‘wish for a pony’ post below – the NYT reports:

In an event that would have been unthinkable a few months ago, in this country where politics is locked into religious lines, the Maronite Catholic patriarch — the spiritual leader of the most pro-Western populace — convened a meeting this week of religious leaders of other communities, Shiite and Sunni Muslims and several varieties of Christians, resulting in a statement of solidarity and photographs in Wednesday’s newspapers. Their joint statement, condemning the Israeli “aggression,” hailed “the resistance, mainly led by Hezbollah, which represents one of the sections of society.”

Looks like that plan to turn the Lebanese population against Hezbollah through the indiscriminate use of air power is working not so well. Is Preznit Pendejo’s stupidity contagious?
