Weekly Reader News - Senior;9/15/2006, Vol. 85 Issue 2, p5
The article provides an overview of the history of the conflict between Israel and Lebanon. Israel was founded in 1948 as a homeland for the Jewish people, but many Muslim countries never accepted Israel's right to exist. Israel occupied southern Lebanon from 1982-2000. In 1982, Israel invaded Lebanon to stop a Palestinian group that was attacking Israelis. Countries such as Israel and the U.S. consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization and it is noted that Hezbollah's main supporters are Iran and Syria.
