A group of Lebanese political dissenters, including MP Walid Jumblatt criticized on Thursday the recent escalation in Israeli-Lebanese tension initiated by Hizbullah. A message released by the group said that releasing Lebanese prisoners was all well and good, but raised the question of whether the abduction of the Israeli soldiers was done for that purpose, or for the sake of a person "whose palace was flown over by Israeli planes two weeks ago" - a clear suggestion that Syrian President Bashar Assad was behind the Lebanese military initiative. The dissenters asserted their consternation at one organization - Hizbullah - controlling all of the occurrences in Lebanon, Channel 2 reported.
