Here is a hint of how the war in Lebanon will reverberate in inter-Arab politics

Lebanese wounded turn cold shoulder on Jordan aid - Yahoo! Canada News: "Tent after green tent stands just off one of Beirut's fashionable shopping areas, part of a field hospital sent by Jordan to treat Lebanese wounded.

Jordanian soldiers sit idly in the shade nearby and a peek into one tent reveals the beds are empty.

Lebanese casualties are rejecting aid from Jordan in protest at what they view as its failure to press for an end to Israeli air strikes in the 17-day-old war against Hizbollah."
