Hezbollah's many mistakes

by Uri Dromi, International Herald Tribune, JERUSALEM

Come to think of it, for Israel, peace with Lebanon is far more feasible than peace with Syria or with the Palestinians. There is no meaningful territorial issue at stake, and there is no zero-sum game between the two states, but rather the opposite: Both Lebanon and Israel would gain immensely from peace. Just think of joint investments, tourism and more.

Am I getting carried away here? Maybe. But if it happens, it will be Nasrallah's worst nightmare. And if he lives to see it, he will only have himself to blame.

Getting carried away? Yes. I think so, Uri. Lebanon and Israel will not unite against Nasrallah for the sake of tourism and joint investments. That's the most desperate thing I've heard so far, it's almost delusional. We're at that stage where we're still trying to stop killing each other. The Holy Land Theme Park thing is not going to happen any time soon.
