It's not about what is best for America or Israel or the corrupt Lebanese politicians, it's about what is best for the future of Lebanon and the Lebanese people.

The border is horizontal not diagonal as purported nowadays. It's been horizontal since 1943 and the creation of Lebanon before Israel was created.

All of the Qana and Karish field is Lebanese. Even the Tanin and Tamar fields are in real horizontal Lebanese territory.

Enough corruption!!! Half of the profits of the Tamar and Tanin field must be for Lebanon and the entire Karish field is fully Lebanese !
