"The alternative, Lebanon’s pro-Western factions say, is much worse." The pro-Western factions of March 14 movement include those Sunni fundamentalists (like Khalid Dahir and Mufti Al-Mays and others) who recruited Jihadist fighters for Al-Qa`idah in Iraq. Pro-western my potato. So when the conservative Sunni fundamentalists were pro-Saudi and anti-Nasser during the Cold War, they also were pro-Western.
