Israel should have no role in deciding which countries make up the expanded UN peacekeeping force that is expected to be deployed to Lebanon within days, the head of largest Islamic organization of countries said Friday. "We're going to be on Lebanese territory... We're not going to be on Israeli territory," said Malaysia's Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar upon return from Lebanon. Malaysia holds chairmanship of the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference, and does not recognize an Israeli state. He was responding to reports that Israel did not want peacekeepers from nations which did not have diplomatic relations with Tel Aviv.
