Leftists should be avowedly opposed to the formula that was presented in the speech by Hasan Nasrallah yesterday. He called for the co-existence between resistance and reconstruction. That was the formula of the 1990s when Rafiq Hariri was permitted to impose savage capitalism on Lebanon provided that Hizbullah kept its weapons. That is a price that leftists should not be willing to pay. Hariri capitalism should be rejected just as we rejected Israeli occupation and aggression. Both forms kill the innocent.
