A day after another apparent Hizbullah arms cache explosion in southern Lebanon, President Shimon Peres said that the guerrilla group was turning the country into a "powder keg." "Hizbullah is endangering Lebanon just like Hamas is endangering the Palestinian people," said Peres at the Fourth Galilee Conference in Kfar Blum on Tuesday morning. "From our point of view, we can make peace with Lebanon, there is no reason why not," he added, saying the country could be the Switzerland of the Middle East.
