I’m reading a number of unsubstantiated comments re: Hezb’Allah’s popularity in Lebanon, by commentators I assume are not Lebanese; the audacity, ay?
Well, as a Lebanese woman from the glorious region of the south, which produced Hezb’Allah, I beg to differ.
Hezb’Allah remains a popular resistance group and Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah remains a well-respected and revered leader – a position much deserved. Also, an assortment of Lebanese, from the Christians to the Athiests, to the Muslims and all in between speak positively of Hezb’Allah. Sayyed Hassan, though a religious leader of sorts, draws in everyone – even when speaking of Palestine: have any of those co-opting our Lebanese voices heard a single speech of his (yes there are English translations available) – I would assume not.
I suggest the lot of you visit Mleeta and see the Resistance museum, it is centered in the region of the south touted as being “where heaven meets earth”, and when you climb towards the tip-top of the museum’s middle path, leading towards Sayyed Hassan’s letter to the fighters, you will contend that it is indeed where heaven meets earth.
Also, this invitation is not open to Zionists; sorry. Though the museum does have photographs of the “brave” IDF wailing and bawling, if that makes you feel any better.
Also re: Taxi’s comment on the flag, he’s right! Indeed the party of God (Hezb’Allah) are the victors.
They are the victors. Deservedly and rightfully so.
