If you don't know the unprincipledness of Walid Jumblat you would have been surprised at his shifts and flip flops. A few weeks ago, he was referring to Hizbullah as a terrorist organization. This week, he is referring to them as "resistance." Today, he praised the Lebanese commander-in-chief of the Army because he said he "protected the resistance." A reliable source in Lebanon tells me that Jumblat's recent shift has to do with a large number of "visitors" to the mountains. Apparently, thousands of people from the opposition conducted a munawarah that seems to have scared him.
