May 2010 marks the tenth anniversary of the Israeli withdrawal from south Lebanon.

It was the only time Israel has withdrawn from an Arab country without negotiations or warning - and was supposed to change the way Israel is perceived in the Middle East.

Ten years on, Inside Story looks at the impact of that withdrawal and asks:

How criticial was it in boosting the strength and popularity of Hezbollah?

Why this exception to the normal flow of events in the Arab-Israeli conflict?

And, what is the state of Lebanese-Israeli relations now?

Joining the programme are Ibrahim Mousawi, Hezbollah's head of media relations, Robert Fisk, the Middle East correspondent for the British newspaper The Independent, and Charlie Wolf, a political commentator and columnist for The Jewish News.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Sunday, May 23, 2010.
