All of us share the sadness of the French people at last week's terrorist attack in Paris, and of the Lebanese people at the weekend attack in Tripoli.Just as the U.K. stands united with the French people, so we stand firmly with Lebanon as it responds to the threat from ISIS and its allies. Neither Islamic nor a state, ISIS is a threat to real Islam. The coalition of over 60 countries, including from the Middle East, is showing that the world will not tolerate ISIS' brutality.The risk to Lebanon is that the new threat of ISIS exposes old divisions. So, as in France, the vast majority in Lebanon will need to show that they care as much about protecting Lebanon from this extremism as the extremists care about imposing it.Victory inside Lebanon depends first and foremost on the Lebanese people. This country is not part of the "Islamic State," it is the Lebanese state.The Lebanese people have already shown extraordinary generosity.If I have learned one thing in three years in Lebanon, it is that no one should ever underestimate the resilience of the Lebanese people. ISIS is a threat to all of us.
So... Yalla, bye, dear Lebanon
