Hezbollah, Like Its Sponsor Iran, Cannot Believe The Depth Of Sunni Hatred
clear

Shi'a of Hezbollah can't quite grasp why tan anti-Israel stance doesn't exempt other Shi'a -- in Syria, in Iraq, everywhere -- from Sunni hostility, hatred, and repeated attack. Hezbollah, and the Islamic Republiic of Iran, both keep thinking that if they are sufficiently menacing toward Israel, the Sunnis will accept them as real Muslims. They won't. They will, however, be delighted to watch hated Israel engage in war with the hated Iranian Shi'a, and the more devastating the weapons on either side, the happpier the Sunni onlookers will be. The Shi'a just can't bring themselves to recognize how they are viewed by Sunni Arabs. If they did, they might realize just how dangerous, for themselves, would be the attainment or near-attainment of nuclear weapons.

The story:

Lebanon’s Shiite party Hezbollah condemned a recent set of explosions targeting religious minorities in Syria and Shiite pilgrims in Iraq in recent days.

“The senseless killing and terrible blood shedding of innocent people is the execution of a western devilish will,” Hezbollah said in a statement issued on Thursday.

“We hold the Arab and western military support of gunmen responsible for the explosions in the Damascus suburbs.”

The statement added “is the humanitarian aid provided by some Lebanese figures contributing to bringing democracy, prosperity, and peace to the Syrian people?”

On Wednesday, simultaneous car bombs were detonated at daybreak in a pro-Syrian regime neighborhood of the mainly Christian and Druze town of Jaramana near Damascus, killing at least 54 people and injuring more than 120.

And on Thursday, bombs mainly targeting Shiite Muslims and security forces in Iraq killed 45 people and wounded 205 others in the deadliest day of violence to hit the country in more than two months.
