Are ‘we all Hezbollah now’ that they’ve attacked Syrian rebels?
COMPARE and contrast attitudes to Lebanon-based outfit Hezbollah, an overtly anti-Semitic organisation that says its only aim is to “resist” Israel. But Hezbollah are fighting for Assad in Syria and Iran.
In 2006, protestors at the Stop the War march in London chanted “We are all Hezbollah now.” Do the peacniks want the war stopped because their side is losing?

In Manchester, this Left wing chap wore his Hezbollah T-shirt to – oh, the irony – fight racism.

The Syrian border town of Qusair has fallen to Hezbollah forces after a three-week siege that pitched the powerful Lebanese Shia militia against several thousand Sunni rebels in what had been billed as a defining battle of the civil war.
Iran, the main patron of both groups, released a statement on Wednesday morning “congratulating the Syrian people for their victory”.
Are we all still Hezbollah? Or do their supporters only gun for them when they’re fighting Jews?
