Too closely tied to its larger neighbor, Lebanon can't help but worry about the consequences of the war spreading in Syria. The two countries have tight political links and share a porous border. Is Beirut set to be the next Arab Spring hot spot?

The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; but don't take The Holy Bible for it's word if you are conflicted in your heart.

The Gulf states arming and financing this rebellion against the legitimate government of peace loving Syria have a lot to answer for.

If Assad will be overthrown, Hesbola boys will go hungry and will need to revert to more crimes to finance their organization.

Heard on Al Jazeera this morning that Jordan is suffering from Syria's uprising because they get 2/3 of their imported goods from Syria & the extreme depression & fluctuation of Syria's "$" is also wrecking havoc on Jordan's economy.

We're not hearing too much about it, but I suspect the knock-on effect to any number of surrounding countries is becoming considerable.
