Lebanese Nazis

There is no question that the Phalanges of Lebanon are the rightful version of local Nazis.  The founder of the party never thought of founding a party until his visit to Berlin during the Olympic Games, and he fell under the spell of Hitler and Nazism.  They also were anti-Semites just as they were anti-Muslims.  What is disturbing is that there is now a revival of the cult of Bashir Gemayyel, the most notorious war criminal in the history of Lebanese civil war. This is a section from New York Times obituary of the man.
