My mother (a Sunni Muslim from Beirut) has been very supportive of Hasan Nasrallah. During the Israeli war on Lebanon, she would not allow any criticisms of him or of Hizbullah. But this week, my mother has been displeased with Nasrallah. In his invitation for the Friday rally, he referred to "the divine victory." That phrased really bothered my mother. She asked me whether that reveals some hidden religious agenda about Islamizing the Lebanese state.
