There are three Left(s) in Lebanon:
1) A rightist movement funded by Hariri inc, but is too embarrassed to admit it is actually Rightist (the Yasar Dimuqrati, so-called).
2) A Leftist movement that is embarrassed by its Leftism (Lebanese Communist Party).
3) Individuals and groups who are embarrassed by Yasar Dimuqrati and embarrassed by the Lebanese Communist Party--like Bila Hudud who are getting closer to Hariri Inc these days. The most abstract theoretical text of this group is Che's Motorcycle Diaries. Oh, yeah. Those really like Che and love to wear him on their t-shirts. They think he is cool.
