Palestine and Lebanon

I don’t know much, but I do want to note here that, in direct contrast to my comments earlier about the Lebanese government “controlling” (or not controlling) Hezbollah, it’s actually true that Hezbollah is part of the government. They control twenty five seats in the legislature. They control two of the ministries. It’s wrong actually to talk about them as separate from Lebanon.

Sort of like Hamas, by the way.

What happens in a democracy when the people elect parties like Hamas and Hezbollah? Is that right? Aren’t therefore the latest eruptions the will of the people?

Or maybe it’s like Iraq, and me. I didn’t support the invasion. But it still happened.

And now what?
