Such is the reputation of the South Lebanese for being good hosts that one can almost believe the following (possibly apocryphal) story that started making the rounds immediately after the cease-fire officially took effect on August 14. According to the tale in question, an Israeli tank crew lost its way on the Lebanese side of the border. This must have been more than a little disconcerting, because military spokespeople inside the Jewish state were still reporting the killing of "Hizbullah fighters" by Israeli forces in South Lebanon, and many were wondering how many provocations it would take for the resistance to respond in kind.

Instead, this particular tank was apparently escorted back to the frontier by a car-load of the people who know the area better than anyone: four local Hizbullah men who puffed lazily on their cigarettes as they saw the enemy out the door, hopefully for good this time.
