"Lebanese Foreign Minister, `Ali Ash-Shami, states that Israeli violations of Lebanon's sovereignty in the last year alone was 4000: averaging 11 violations a day. The violations were 7000 from 2006 and 2009. This should suffice for Lebanon to reject in principle any role for the UN or for international treaties in dealing with the Israeli threat. The only choice for Lebanon vis-a-vis Israel is armed resistance against Israeli occupation and aggression. All other measures merely give Israeli the cover for its war crimes."
