Hezbollah Presence in Lebanon Nothing Less Than ‘Iranian Occupation,’ Christian Journalist Asserts

A prominent Lebanese journalist who survived a 2014 terrorist attack in the Bekaa Valley – the heartland of Iran’s Shia proxy, Hezbollah – has described the Islamist terror group’s role in Lebanon as “just like any occupying force.”

Naufal Daou, the Editor-in-Chief of Naharnet and a leading member of the March 14 Alliance – a coalition of Lebanese political parties opposed to the Syrian regime’s hold on Lebanon – told LDC TV that the “Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are here. They are called Hezbollah.”

Daou’s comments in the June 28 interview, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, were challenged by presenter Dima Sadek, who insisted that “there was no army in Lebanon other than the Lebanese army.” But in the fortnight since the interview was recorded, Hezbollah has stepped up its threats against Israel, warning on Thursday this week that the Jewish state should expect a “surprise attack.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
