US ambassador in Lebanon was visiting the town of Khiyam in South Lebanon yesterday to open a museum for WWII. The father of two men who were killed by Israel, showed up (Muhammad Hammud) and called upon him to leave the area. He started chanting slogans against him and against his government (while saying that he respects the American people). The guards of the ambassador quickly came to push him away, and the ambassador had to flee the scene. To be honest with you, when I saw the footage, I was surprised. I mean this happened AFTER the famous trip by Karen Hughes, who dramatically changed Muslim AND Arab public opinion toward the US and its wars.
