What the Lebanese Really Think?

Ezzie, guest blogging at the Muqata, points to this report from rotter.net's "scoops" forum. I'm not familiar with that source, and the language doesn't make it sound very plausible to me, but Ezzie claims that "they've been right almost all the time since the war started...I put the link in though for people to read themselves". The link is in Hebrew; here's my translation:

On the first day of the war, the president of France hurried to announce that Israel "longs to wipe Lebanon out". Other countries, among them even the USA, informed Israel that they were worried at the lack of proportionality between the kidnapping of soldiers and the war that Israel had declared on Lebanon. Yet today they all take the same line, and just as the demolition and destruction and fire grow ever greater, the leaders of the eight industrialised countries coordinate a position that sides with the Israeli approach and with the goals of the war. The reason? The Prime Minister of Lebanon asked them to allow Israel to erase Hizballah from the area for him. "Israel can do to Hizballah what I can't, let them finish the job", said Lebanese Prime Minister Siniora to all these antisemites in Europe.

UPDATE: Ezzie also reports this on his own blog.

I also wonder about the source, which is why I provided it. Nevertheless, they've been uncannily right throughout the war - they first reported Israel hit two Lebanese bases, which was only picked up by other news services a 1/2 hour later.
