Lebanese President Michel Sleiman and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad walk past the honor guard at the presidential palace in Baabda on Oct. 13. President Sleiman, a Maronite Christian and a former commander of the Lebanese army, came to office in 2008 as a compromise candidate only after Hezbollah gave him its blessing. The heavily armed Islamist group plays a major role in Lebanon's parliament and continues to hold sway in the country's south.
