The world expert on Hizbullah shows off his deep ignorance of his subject

"Magnus Ranstorp, a Swedish political scientist and one of the world's leading experts on Hezbollah — Arabic for "Party of God" — said it was "ludicrous" to suggest that Fakih, whose family includes Christians and Muslims, is a Hezbollah sympathizer. With her low-cut gown and jewel-encrusted bracelet — not to mention the tiny bikini, "She would be flogged if she showed up in any of Hezbollah's neighborhoods in Beirut," the Lebanese capital, Ranstorp said." This only proves that this world expert on Hizbullah has never stepped foot in the southern suburbs of Beirut, and has never ventured in the villages of South Lebanon. And the Western media flock to such characters to learn about the Middle East. (thanks Olivia)
