Freedom On The March?

Another Middle East Country, another election.

BINT JBEIL, Lebanon – Hezbollah and its Shiite allies claimed victory in southern Lebanon in Sunday’s second stage of national elections, a vote the militant group hopes will prove its strength and send a message of defiance to the United States.

Hundreds of Hezbollah supporters drove through the streets of Beirut waving the group’s yellow flag in celebration. In Beirut’s predominantly Shiite southern suburbs, fireworks lit the sky.


The United States, which labels Hezbollah a terrorist organization, wants the guerrilla group to abandon its weapons in line with last year’s U.N. Security Council Resolution 1559. Hezbollah has refused to disarm, a position backed by Lebanese authorities.
