Spoke with Walid Jumblatt, leader of the British connected and MI-6 blessed Druze of Lebanon. Jumblatt condemns the al-Assads of Damascus as terrorists and says that they are playing a waiting-out Bush game -- stalling the UN in hopes of regime change in Washington. Even a congressional setback in November would brighten Damascus's eyes.
Jumblatt was also consistent that he will negotiate and cooperate with Hamas-run Palestinian Authority as soon as the PA government is formed.
Jumblatt knows there is no down side to him if he supports Hamas. Europe, and the EU councils, and the MI-6 money and support, will not go away because Jumblatt is anti-Israel.
