    Intimacy with the terrain ... (2 of 2)

    (1 of 2) is written in the book entited ""In the path of Hizbullah"" by: Ahmad Hamzeh<BR/><BR/>The HZB criticized an Arab world where empty words are so often taken for deeds. <BR/>Perhaps we should not omit to appreciate this: many historians understood Shiizm as the Revolution in Islam. <BR/>HZB's supporters are Shiite Moslems but their reasons for fighting, they endeavour to have us believe, are entirely patriotic. <BR/>Their adversaries interpret what they (HZB) are aspiring to do as innate reflex often hidden in any peculiar psyche, the same as severe revenge of a deprived who wants to become the beneficiary. <BR/>As a matter of fact, I am not so sure I can agree with this interpretation. <BR/>Is this common to all revolutionists? <BR/>HZB vows to turn the table and change the old culture in the Arab/Israeli conflict that advocated a victory of myth over reality, of propaganda over performance, a situation that had hitherto been predominant in the Arab World, but now is different. <BR/>The HZB claims they are transforming such decayed culture into heroism. <BR/><BR/>Moreover, irrespective how the tide of the battle has ended (if ended at all), come what it may, HZB fighters have proven their love and loyalty to their leaders, and a tight unity of command behind Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah whose character has impressed many in the Western world. <BR/><BR/>The second fight HZB and Israel have lain down has not come to grief yet. Lebanon could face miscarriage of justice in the UN while Israel's security problems loomed larger. <BR/>Ardent politicians and military youths, from both sides, have simply waved the red rag to a giant bull. <BR/><BR/>I wonder how this book should be updated. <BR/><BR/>Perhaps it is premature to do any `revision' now.
