Malaysia and Indonesia insisted Tuesday on their right to send troops for a UN peacekeeping mission in Lebanon, dismissing Israeli objections to the involvement of the Muslim nations because they don't recognize the Jewish state. Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, said Israel should not be able to dictate which countries send troops to southern Lebanon to enforce a cease-fire between Hizbullah and Israel.
