Americus -- Attorney Bill Murray, a second generation Lebanese American watches with great concern as Lebanon, a country that is still home to some members of his family including it's Defense Minister.
His second cousin Elisah Murr is the center of more fighting. Although Murray has not talked with his second cousin recently, he knows how difficult the situation is in the region concerning the relations between the Lebanese Christians and the Israeli people who continue to trade rockets with the Hezbollah fighters based inside of Lebanon.
"The Christians suffering, they have been sympathetic to Israel, yet they are being attacked too, and this is the tragedy of all of this. Hezbollah is inter-twined in the society and culture of Lebanon in all sections of Lebanon."
Murray, who visited Lebanon for the first time in 2003. three says that much of the countries infrastructure will again have to be repaired after this conflict, that he says is much like Vietnam for the Israelis, who continue dealing with Hezbollah fighters attacking from inside Lebanon.
"They are very difficult to seek out, they live in houses with there families. It's a guerrilla group, it's Vietnam all over again for Israel. This is why Israel is afraid to go too deep into Lebanon, because it's a quagmire."
The Americus native says he hopes a diplomatic solution to this conflict can resolve it, before more of the beautiful country he knows and some of his family still calls home is damaged.
"This whole thing puts the Lebanese politicians' backs to the wall. The very force being used is destroying the fragile makeup of the political system there, and of course it is tearing up beautiful villages.
Murray's second cousin, the Lebanese Defense Minister was recently sent to Rome for talks along with United States Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
