From the AP:

Hundreds of thousands jammed a central Beirut square Tuesday….[T]wo huge banners read, in English: “Thank you Syria” and “No to foreign interference.” The latter was a reference to U.S. and U.N. pressure on Syria–but not to the Syrian military, which the protesters made clear they were happy to have stay. “We’re here for the independence of Lebanon but not for Syria to leave,” said 16-year-old Esraa Awarki, who traveled to Beirut by bus with schoolmates from Sharkiya, in southern Lebanon….”We are demonstrating here against foreign intervention in our internal affairs, and we’re supporting Hezbollah,” said Maha Choukair, a 21-year-old Lebanese University student. “Here we are saying thank you to Syria, not asking them to leave.”
