Shia cleric says Blair not welcome in Lebanon

Lebanon’s top Shia cleric said on Sunday British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who is on a tour of the Middle East, was not welcome in Lebanon because of his support for Israel and the United States.

Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah criticised Blair for not calling for an early truce in Israel’s 34-day war with Shia Hezbollah guerrillas and for allowing US weapons to be shipped via Britain to Israel for use against Lebanon.
