Anne Barnard on Lebanon

Notice in this article by Barnard about Lebanese developments yesterday: 1) when she mentions Hizbullah she gives you a list of its activities and intervention in Syria. But when she mentions its rival, Future Movement, she says not one word about its intervention and role in Syria, which preceded Hizbullah's intervention in Syria by more than a year. 2) She still finds a way to justify car bombs by Syrian rebels in Syria and Lebanon:  "Sunni militant groups detonated a number of car bombs in Hezbollah-dominated areas".   What does she mean by "car bombs in Hizbullah-dominated ares" when the car bombs kill civilians and some neighborhoods are in fact "Amal-dominated"???
