This Zogby Poll has some pretty surprising, and perhaps disturbing, findings. According to the poll, a huge percentage of Lebanese think either Israel or the United States had something to do with the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. What scares the bejeezus out of me is that twenty-two percent of Marionite Christian respondents and thirty-six percent of Orthodox Christians blame Israel or the US. Pollster James Zogby, an American Arab makes the following observation:

before we begin celebrating falling dominos and claiming credit for them, it is important to know where they might fall and what might come after they land

Seems like good advice to me. In other news, thousands of supporters of the Syrian-backed terrorist militia Hezbollah took to the streets to oppose the pull-out of Syrian troops.
