    The turnout is low with less than 50 %. However, the big winner is Hezbollah. Although not the strongest party, the camp will take over the majority of the seats, at least 67 out of 128 according to prognoses. The Future Movement has lost votes but is still the strongest party and Hariri remains President. He will have a hard time.
    Israel already responded. The Public Security Minister Erdan said that Israel will no longer distinguish between Hezbollah and Lebanon. Minister of Education and Minister of Diaspora Affairs Bennet twittered: "Lebanon = Hezbollah".

    :umno:
    Let's see:

    A militant Islamist Shia group that calls itself "Party of Allah"...is not about religion.
    Then I guess a Sharia judge is merely a judge and not religion either?

    Our Merkel is of the Christian Democratic Party (Union). However, there is also a Christian party in the Hezbollah camp. Many Christians are member of Hezbollah, as well.

    Hezbollah is about political power and territorial ownership.

    Incorrect,
    no territory is even mentioned in the name - only Allah.

    Hashem is their judge.

    Why are you whining? Don´t be at war with everyone. And look at the Israeli party landscape. The parties are almost exclusively Zionist, even the leftwingers.

    Me whining? Is this an attempt to deflect...nah weak.
    But it's interesting how the last resort of the Nasrallah and Assad fans is to compare both their heroes and their enemies to Israel...

    It's almost a compliment in a way.:cool:

    Merely pointed out the meaning of the word 'Hizballah'.
    And I'm just saying - although they love to hate Israel, I don't see many countries in the ME comparing themselves to Hizballah or Assad...just saying.
