  • Criticism of Hizbullah on the Rise among Shi’ites in Lebanon over Involvement in Syria – E.B. Picali
    A new wave of criticism from Hizbullah’s opponents has crested. Even the Shi’ite public in Lebanon that has traditionally supported Hizbullah is now less convinced of the rightness of its path in Syria. While no end to the war is in sight, more and more dead and wounded Hizbullah fighters are returning to Lebanon. One report even stated that young Shi’ites – including sons of Hizbullah officials – are fleeing to Europe for fear that they will be recruited to fight. Moreover, it is apparent that Hizbullah’s Shi’ite opponents, both politicians and journalists, are feeling safer to express their views. (MEMRI)
