Ahmadinejad arrives today in Lebanon to what all can agree has been a polarized debate on a head of State visiting another. He will most likely receive a heroes welcome from the Shiites who have had their cities and homes rebuilt after the 2006 Israeli conflict with funds from Iran. Posters at the time proudly claimed "Israel destroys, and Iran rebuilds". Israel who inflicted the damage in 2006 will be protesting the trip by releasing white and blue balloons near the border. One might think that they are jealous of all the Iranian flags and balloons out to greet Ahmadinejad.
