Balad MKs meet with Lebanese PM, express support for Hizbullah

Three Balad Knesset members met with Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora in Beirut on Friday. In the meeting, they expressed sympathy for the plight of the Lebanese during the recent war - as well as support for Hizbullah. Hizbullah's resistance to Israel "lifted the spirit of the Arab people," MKs Azmi Bishara, Jamal Zahalka and Wasal Taha told the prime minister. They arrived in Lebanon on Thursday following a week-long trip to Syria. The legislators coordinated their visit with the speaker of the Lebanese Parliament, Nabih Berri, who is close to Hizbullah. Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz has opened an investigation against the three for the visit to Syria.
