  1. Gotta love "Identity" politics.... although I suppose since Palestinian Hezbollah is directly and openly supporting the Syrians in the war, it's a little disengenuous to claim that the two subjects Palestine/Syria are wholly "un-related."

  2. The Iranian-Shi'a faction want her "heard"... the Sunni faction want her silenced?

    1. Just as I Thought... the Western media toes the "Sunni/ Saudi" line.

  3. Hezbollah isn't Palestinian, it's Lebanese. It arose as a reaction to Israeli invasion/occupation of South Lebanon. But it does support the Palestinians.

    Hezbollah got involved against ISIL because it's the only Lebanese fighting force worth mentioning. I believe they're protecting their turf against the Islamists.

    1. I suppose it all depends upon "when" you want to start your history... and who's willing to "assimilate" refugee's (and who's NOT). :)

    2. If your reference to "assimilate" refugees is about how 'Arab' nations don't assimilate Palestinian refugees then I can only say that the Arab World's leaders have played a very dirty role in the Palestinian tragedy, often bought and sold by the West, of course.

      See e.g. how Washington/Tel Aviv were crapping themselves when Mubarak was ousted but now eveything's hunky dorey again because al Sisi is now holding his boot on the neck of the Egyptians! And mostly for Israel, Farmer...

    3. No doubt... but let's see if Trump declares the Brotherhood a terrorist organization... if he does, the love affair with the Saudis might be at an end (although the love for Israel may not. One step at a time...

    4. Isn't the MB onn the US's (ever varying) list of terrorist orgs?

      Trump wouldn't endanger the US's oil deficit with the 'House of bin Laden', would he?

    5. I don't think so...Obama supporter Mubarek's 'brotherhood' successor until the generals tossed him out. I'll double check though....

  4. Nope, not on the terror list. The Saudi's WILL be pissed!
