The head of Lebanon's largest parliamentary block blasted both Israel and Syria in a fiery nationalistic speech Thursday to hundreds of supporters. "The history of Israel is a black history, a hateful one, of destruction," said Saad Hariri, in a speech praising the Lebanese army for moving into south Lebanon. "Israeli attacks can destroy Lebanon [physically] but will not touch Lebanese unity," Hariri said. The son of slain former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, a top US ally, said Israel had a history of "living off the blood" of Palestinian, Lebanese and other Arab people.
