THE PROTESTS IN LEBANON seem to be just enormous.

I hope that they're getting the attention they deserve from world media, and especially from Arab media.

There certainly seem to be a lot of them. Crowd counts are notoriously uncertain, but the reports of over a million are certainly going to get attention, especially from people in other Arab countries. (And here's a comparison of last week's Hizbollah rallies with the final pro-segregation demonstrations in Mississippi.)

This is exactly the sort of thing we need to see. I hope that the Syrians are wise enough to beat a hasty retreat.

Lots more pictures here.
