Subhi Tufayli and the Syrian regime

A journalist went to interview Subhi Tufayli (the leader of Hizbullah in the 1980s during its most horrific phase).  She asked him a question about his past alliance with the Syrian regime and he blew up at her and lost it.  He called her an Israeli and then ordered his men to remove the recorder from her.  His thuggish son almost hit her.  Tufayli is now the Saudi-Hariri choice for leading the Shi`ites of Lebanon although his popular base does not extend beyond his small family and the confines of Saudi intelligence headquarters.

PS The journalist told me the story.
