Are ‘we all Hezbollah now’ that they’ve attacked Syrian rebels?

by | 5th, June 2013

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.

On Israel:

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?

2013:

The Guardian:

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?
