correspondents in Beirut-one of the worst bunch of journalists ever
assembled) would ignore Hizbullah's victory against Al-Qa`idah. Their
sympathies are really with Al-Qa`idah. Also, Hizbullah's fight against
Al-Qa`idah or against ISIS (and the fight between Russia and its allies
against them) have been strictly ignored in order to create the
propaganda myth (created by Gulf regimes) that those never fight except
the "moderate rebels"--who have largely been the figment of the
imagination of the Western correspondents in Beirut. A friend made the
observation that Hizbullah fought differently when not hampered by the
participation of the brutal Syrian regime on its side. The was was
concentrated against fighters (ignore those social media ramblings which
could not even tell the difference between `Irsal and Juruda `Irsal
(the fight was against the latter where Al-Qa`idah has been
headquartered in Lebanon). Also, Hizb had an agreement with the less
extreme among the Syrian rebels (like Saraya Ahl-Ash-Sham): Nasrallah
said yesterday that those fighters were even allowed to go back to
refugee camps and to their families in `Irsal. None of the warring
groups in Syria (local and foreign) had those terms in the on-going war.
Amnesty was even offered to Al-Qa`idah fighters if they surrendered.
Nasrallah yesterday stressed that they won't touch `Irsal or the camps
where Syrian refugees are located. And you can say this regardless
whether you approve or disapprove of Hizbullah's intervention in Syria.
But one thing is clear: the Zionist lobby prefers a terrorist
organization like ISIS and Al-Qa`idah--both of which are strictly
inactive against Israel--to any Arab resistance group which is focused
on Israeli occupation and aggression.
PS The worst parties in Lebanon against Syrian refugees have been the
Maronite patriarchate, Lebanese Forces and the Awni Movement plus all
municipalities (Sunni, Shi`ite, Druzes, and Christians) which have
practiced blatant discrimination and repression against Syrian refugees.
