"I used to think of (Hezbollah leader) Nasrallah as the smartest politician in Lebanon, but this last operation changed my mind," said Roula Haddad, a 33-year-old administrative secretary, shopping at the upscale ABC mall in the predominantly Cristian Ashrafiyeh neighborhood. "It was a huge mistake and he is solely responsible for all the destruction. He proved that he does not care about Lebanese interests; he revealed his true Iranian skin."

At least there is hope in Lebanon and maybe other parts of the Arab community after reading this quote in the New York Times yesterday. Yes Hezbollah has built schools and hospitals and paid people's bills and bought them medicine and paid for medical care and school supplies. The accounts receivable for Hezbollah were the sons of Lebanese Shiites to be the Lebanon division of the Iranian army. Reports are that Iran sends $40 million a month (of our money straight from the gas pump) to Hezbollah to buy off the poor of south Beirut and Lebanon. That's on top of the weapons sent to Hezbollah from Tehran and from the description in Newsweek they are equipped as well as the Israelis. Make no mistake about it, this is the AAA league of the Iranian army and Israel is doing the Western world's work for it.

Lebanon was not free before Nasrallah started this war with Israel. It was on loan to the Syrians and the Iranians. The Iranians are now collecting on their investment. Ultimately it will be up to the Lebanese people to decide whether to be the guest house of Iran or whether they, including Hezbollah want to be Lebanese first. Either way, Israel is making it clear that there is a heavy price to be paid to be the outsourced Iranian army invading Israel to start wars.
