Members of the Francophonie summit have agreed to a compromise on a contentious resolution after Prime Minister Stephen Harper blocked the original proposal.
The original wording of the resolution recognized Lebanon's suffering in this summer's 34-day conflict, but not Israel's.
Harper took a strong stance against the Egyptian-proposed resolution which most of the 72 members supported. He urged the organization to recognize the suffering of both nations.
Except that Israel is not cleaning up after the total destruction of its infrastructure and does not have cluster bombs scattered through out Tel Aviv.
