Something to muse about Hezbollah

To get you interested, check out the following two versions about this Shiite group, which the Lebanese government recognizes as a resistant movement and which has 23 of Lebanon's 128 parliament seats. The links are from BBC. One is dated April 4, 2002 and the other more recent, dated July 13, 2006.

The latter doesnt use the word "terrorist" even once. And lastly, we have the much more democratic, dynamic (i.e., being continuously updated with contents and citations) description at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hezbollah

Another article at CNN on why Hezbollah has popular support inside Lebanon.
