Phares to radio SAWA: "Ahmedinijad's visit to Beirut a message about Lebanon, Arab moderates and the US"

In an interview with Radio SAWA in Arabic, Professor Walid Phares said "the visit by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinijad to Lebanon is a multi-messages move addressed to his foes. First it is an assertion of the dominance of Hezbollah in Lebanon since May 2008; second it is a message to Arab moderates in the region that Beirut is now under his influence; and three it is a message to the United States that the regime in Tehran cannot be isolated. This visit is a message to the regime's foes that Lebanon is under his sphere of influence" Visit Website ]
