As the crisis in Lebanon is expected to stretch into it's third week of fighting and rocket, airstrikes and artillery crossing the border and pitched gunbattles stretching into almost non-stop action on cable tv's 24 hour channels.

The clear an present danger to the rest of the world - esp. in areas where the spillover could create and in fact some claim has created a climate ideal for those groups seeking to exploit images and recruit more people into radical groups in many parts of the world.

'Godfather' blogger Kelly Collison writes that the new terror recruitment drive might be the price of continued fighting in Lebanon erasing any gains made in fight versus JI and forcing even moderate islamic group members to the folds of more radical organizations: Kerry B Collison

[] ".... Indonesians warn that Israeli attacks could fuel terrorism

Thousands of Indonesians rallied Friday against Israel's military operations in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, warning the West that such violence would only inflame Islamic militants. The protesters, who gathered in several cities across the world's most populous Muslim nation, waved banners calling Israeli and U.S. leaders "the real terrorists."

under a protective blanket of ten thousand police and troops President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, gave a speech ending on a note of reconciliation and focused on programs as well as projects that
centered on strong economic gains in the Philippines in the last 22 months.
Focusing as she started her roughly One hour and thirty minute talk on people related issues and programs, she claims the public is more
concerned with government programs than politics.

Arroyo left off directly speaking on her critics issues which still center of her legitimacy; keeping those issues off her agenda and
spoke on financial gains and the fight versus corruption and the boom of the BPO service economy and technology sectors that are boosting
growth with a jump from 2000 BPO jobs in 2001 to over 200,000 in 2006.
Citing 22 Months of solid double digit growth figures in the Philippine Economy.
Saying this next year thanks to reforms and victories over terrorism and ongoing peace talks with rebel groups.

Opposition leaders mostly reacted by downplaying her administrations political gains and focusing on their effort at impeachment with
several complaints filed and awaiting action in congress.

Her Critics focused on the issue of alleged illegitimacy of her government and issues of human rights abuses and summery killings of members of the media, grass roots politcal parties, and, labor and leftist leaders.
