Revised draft calls for 'progressive' IDF withdrawal
from south Lebanon

By Shlomo Shamir, Aluf Benn and Yair Ettinger, Haaretz Correspondents, and Agencies
Haaretz Fri., August 11, 2006 Av 17, 5766

The parties involved in diplomatic negotiations for a UN-brokered cease-fire resolution aimed at ending the fighting in Lebanon made a breakthrough Thursday, raising hopes that a truce deal would pave the way for the stationing of international troops in Lebanon as part of a package that would end the month-long confrontation between Israel and Hezbollah.

The UN Security Council will convene Friday to discuss the new proposal, which has been agreed to by the United States as well as France.

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said late Thursday, however, there was still no agreement on a resolution calling for an end to the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah but that he hoped for one on Friday. "I have not at all given up on the prospect that we might yet vote tomorrow," Bolton told reporters after a day of talks. "We have not yet reached agreement but will continue to work on it and will continue to work on it this evening and meet again early tomorrow morning."

The sides are currently trying to put the finishing touches to the final wording of the resolution. The revised draft calls for a "progressive" Israeli withdrawal, a senior Lebanese political source said on Thursday. "The Americans have moved their position. A deal with the French is very close in the next hours, but most likely on Friday," he told Reuters.

1. Why must bush take the position that US
is the enemies of the ARAB world?

How dumb does he need to be?

CHINA is making friend, Russia is making friends, EU is making friends.

" The Americans have moved their position. A deal with the French is very close."

I do not think that after pissypant US will be able to recover their World Prestige again.

His little adventure of conquest it nothing but a moment in time for his personal glory. But the taint he brings will be captured in human history.
