The assassination of Brigadier General Francois Al-Hajj marks the first act of violence in Lebanon since the end of President Emile Lahoud's term and the country's ensuing political impasse over his succession. Despite general agreement between pro and anti-Syrian factions that General Michel Suleiman will fill the vacant presidency, infighting has delayed a parliamentary vote for the eighth time. While the country has been embroiled in a political crisis amid ongoing political assassinations since 2005, is the country teetering on the brink of sectarian violence? How can we understand Syria's role in Lebanon's recent political climate? How should U.S. and European allies proceed? What can be expected for Lebanon's fledgling democracy?
