"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

The State of Hezbollah

Hezbollah is working hard to supply refugees medical help, food and shelter. They are being aided quickly to demonstrate a need for the terrorist group and build a constituency who will blame Israel for the damage in Lebanon.
Hezbollah is not happy with two seats in Lebanon's parliament nor are they happy being a "state within a state." Hezbollah wants to be "the" state, period.
Hassan Nasrallah went on Hezbollah's al-Manar Television to declare a "strategic, historic victory" against Israel — a declaration that prompted celebratory gunfire across the Lebanese capital.
Nasrallah said Hezbollah members would fan out across the south to help rebuild shattered homes and said the group — which is believed to receive large amounts of money from Iran — would help people to pay rent and buy furniture until their homes are rebuilt.
Hezbollah is a well-armed guerrilla group and has not been eliminated, the real extent of damage to its arsenal is not known. Nasrallah moved to defuse domestic pressure for his movement to disarm, scolding Lebanese critics for bringing up the issue.
xxx "This is immoral, incorrect and inappropriate," Nasrallah said, underlining that the Shiite community that forms the backbone of Hezbollah support had made "the most sacrifice" in the battle and that critics shouldn't disturb the national unity behind his movement.
Key words, "national unity" and "movement." If Olmert in Israel loses his seat as Prime Minister, Hezbollah will be convinced of victory and only become more empowered. The Lebanese government remains toothless in the face of a terrorist organization that has allowed its country to be turned into a decimated war-zone.
