Obama to Israel: No war with Lebanon


U.S. President Barack Obama will reportedly press Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to the White House next week, not to wage war on Lebanon “for whatever reason, motive or justification.”

The daily An-Nahar on Thursday, which carried the report, quoted ministerial sources as saying that Obama will also ask Netanhayu to facilitate success of the U.S.-brokered Middle East peace process.

Netanyahu will hold talks with Obama in Washington June 1 after White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel handed him a personal invitation from the U.S. president on Wednesday.
