Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday told the opening session of a journalists conference that Israel's war on Lebanon was a "planned aggression".
"The Israeli aggression against Lebanon was not connected with its kidnapped soldiers (by Hezbollah), but had been prearranged for a period of time," Assad said.
He said the resistance in Lebanon had achieved victory, adding the people's support had helped the resistance achieve this victory.
"We choose peace as a strategic choice, but it does not mean we exclude other choices and does not mean we have given up resistance," the president said

Again, I'm not so knowledgeable as to know what to do about Hezb' Allah, but I see religious fundamentalism (no matter what sect) to be the enemy of civilization. Ignorance is their tool, and they wield it well. Whenever I see someone who thinks "God" is on their side, I am immediately afraid, very afraid.

I think she seriously annoyed that old guy in the hat, though. He rather proved her point, immediately labeling her a heretic. He's not used to arguing a point with a woman who uses facts and logic.
