Hizbullah displayed their misreadings of the Lebanese political situation yet again. Hizbullah's parliamentary bloc leader, Muhammad Ra`d, portrayed mini-Hariri as a helpless victim of Jumblat and Ja`ja` (Ga`ga` in Egyptian accent). Do they think that they are being smart or that they can avert Sunni-Shi`ite discord with that kind of rhetoric? And Ra`d even offered praised for mini-Hariri. Make no mistake about it: the Hizbullah-Hariri deal that will eventually come out, will be hell of a lousy deal.
