Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Lebanon supported the move by the Arab League in part because a senior Shia scholar who had gone to Libya to attempt to dissuade Gadaffi from one of his follies was, presumedly, killed by Gadaffi. Hezbollah, a Shia group financed by Iran, took and takes grave exception. And I suspect Iran has other reasons to hate Gadaffi. He has alienated just about everyone, excepting some comparable moral monsters, such as Mobuto, and, until recently, Berlescuoni.
