"The Lebanese Druse leader Walid Jumblatt received threats from Hizbullah; if he didn't support them - Hizbullah would conquer their stronghold in Chouf mountains [south-east of Beirut]," MK Majallie Whbee told Army Radio Saturday.

Whbee, a member of the Druse community, estimated that such threats emanating from Hizbullah camp were the basis for Jumblatt's recent support of the Hizbullah-Syria alliance in the present Lebanese political crisis. He also suspected that Jumblatt would not, in the end, join a government coalition headed by Hizbullah.
