Muslims and Christians loyal to President Elias Hrawi struck to protest at what they see as defiant Christian Maj. Gen. Michel Aoun's plan to partition Lebanon. Banks, stores, schools and businesses closed across three-quarters of the country outside the Aoun-controlled Christian enclave. Hrawi has threatened to resign if Aoun does not capitulate, accept his authority and vacate the shell-scarred presidential palace in the East Beirut suburb of Baabda.

The State Department has begun investigating whether Israel improperly used American-made cluster bombs during its monthlong fight against the Hezbollah militia in southern Lebanon, government officials said Friday. The inquiry comes as human rights groups and a United Nations agency have raised questions about Israel's use of the munitions, which are normally aimed at large concentrations of military forces because of their ability to cause destruction over a wide area.

OPINION
July 14, 2006
Re "Israel Strikes Lebanon After Militants Capture 2 Soldiers," July 13 For the 13 years since the so-called Oslo Peace Accords, Israel has faced unprecedented terrorism. World opinion has forced it to rely on defensive efforts, physical deterrents and limited retaliation or offensive initiatives. No other nation in the world would have done this at the expense of thousands of its innocents. Hezbollah's unprovoked offensive and Hamas' continued terrorism have made it clear that there is no political solution to Palestinian terrorism, that international public opinion is never satisfied with Israeli concessions and that Israel should change its strategy and strive for a decisive victory.
