The Lebanon war between Israel and Hezballah last summer resulted in an ambiguous outcome with no clear military victory. Now tensions between the United States and Hezbollah, Syria and Iran are intensifying. The United States has charged Hezballah and its’ backers, Syria and Iran, with seeking to topple the current Lebanese government under Prime Minister Fuad Siniora. Syria also has been accused by the U.S. of attempting to impede the establishment of an international tribunal to try the individuals involved in the 2005 assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. As the political situation in Lebanon has become growingly volatile, Syria's and Iran’s role in Lebanon and their support of Hezballah merit greater investigation. Hudson Institute’s Center for Middle East Policy and the Lebanese Information Center are pleased to host Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) along with a panel of distinguished experts who will discuss these and related issues.
