    While Palestine Liberation leader Yasser Arafat is being toasted in New York after his historic address to the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday (13 November) there's been jubilation in the Lebanese capital, ???.

    Lebanese Prime Minister Rashid Al-Solh said it was cause for satisfaction and pride for every Arab, and the Lebanese in particular, that the Palestine case had followed "the natural course which it should have followed 30 years ago".

    He said Mr. Arafat's speech is diverting and changing the course of events in international circles as regards the Palestine case.

    There was widespread celebration on Wednesday night throughout Lebanon, particularly in areas in Beirut which are inhabited by Palestinian refugees.

    Mr. Arafat's speech was broadcast over Lebanon's state-run radio, and on Thursday (14 November) Yasser Arafat made front page headlines in every newspaper.
