My friend Amer wrote me this today: "The reason why hizbollah will never become a real movement of national liberation is that its activism is directed solely at Israel, and not at changing Arab regimes and creating the environment for real national liberation (not even changing the regime in lebanon)." I can add that Hizbullah can't even be said to be a revolutionary movement and it has largely ignored socio-economic struggle during the Hariri years.
