Barack was addressing the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee before a scheduled Labor Party conference.

He also expressed the hope for a breakthrough in diplomatic negotiations across the board. he minister also talked about the Syrian-supported Hizbullah terror organization and its role in Lebanon and stressed that a situation in which a neighbor state, which is a member of the Arab League and the United Nations, has a militia with over 40,000 rockets as part of the ruling system, was completely unacceptable.
