Don’t miss this column by David Ignatius on the “Lebanese intifada.” It includes this quotation from the intifada’s leader, Walid Jumblatt:
It’s strange for me to say it, but this process of change has started because of the American invasion of Iraq. I was cynical about Iraq. But when I saw the Iraqi people voting three weeks ago, 8 million of them, it was the start of a new Arab world. The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it.
