I’m working on the first of a series of long essays documenting a road trip to Hezbollah’s stronghold in South Lebanon. While I’m wrapping that up, here are some links.
ESCALATION COMING: Hezbollah says it will escalate its so-far non-violent push to topple the Seniora government.
THROWING DOWN THE GAUNTLET: Saad Hariri accuses Hezbollah of “political and intellectual terrorism.”
DON’T BE A SUCKER: Tony Badran explains why even talking to Syria is dangerous.
THROWING HEZBOLLAH A BONE: Israel says Lebanese murderer Samir Kuntar will be released shortly from prison, which will (in theory) eliminate one of Hezbollah’s flimsy excuses for war.
