Hizballah exists and they have the right to exist even though I do not agree with their lifestyle nor to their ideology.To HA supporters:
I am sure that there are a lot of people that have the same opinion as me but for the sake of not using a vague we i will talk about myself. For me Hezbollah is both a good and bad thing that i wish did not exist. If we look together and realistically at our army's state we agree that it is in no shape of defending lebanon against a superior military force that is Israel. I understand the threat and i understand why some lebanese people felt the burden to have to carry arms to defend their homes and villages against an occupying force.
Let's not forget that this is a burden, a burden that should be lifted from citizens in the south as we have a professional army that has the job of carrying that burden so you a business major, a doctor, an engineer, an butcher, an electrician can carry on with your life without having to think about fighting. The army is a composite force from all the population including the south and the bekaa regions along with the north, mount lebanon, beirut .... full of patriots and great fighters that would like to defend their nation.
I am against the existence of Hezbollah for this main reason. I do not want a 1 Sect and 1 region carrying the burden because lets not kid ourselves you are very good at it and it makes me uncomfortable when i know you can wipe me out whenever it pleases you! It makes me insecure in my country as i only have to take your word for it that you will not use the impressive feats you did to fight against me while i am working in the private sector.... it makes me uncomfortable to do business in my country and knowing im passing through you for security reasons and you asking nicely even innocently for something puts me in a situation of having to comply as i am scared!
Even if we do not share the same sect, same principles and ideals we can be under the lebanese army to build it in a way to remove that burden from the citizens that are not soldiers. That is the only way lebanon can become a country and not a sect infested cesspool because when one sect scares the rest the others will only try to get stronger and more united in a me against the world logic.
If i do not like Hezbollah's presence does not mean i am dismissing any Israeli threats or on their books...it is just because in an ideal world Hezbollah does not need to exist and it is a step towards that ideal.
Long rant but understand you scare people and some corruption and unilateral decisions enforced that feeling to a certain point that it makes living together under one roof like being friends with a guy holding a gun and jokingly pulls it out every time they need a favor....ye we need that friend because our neighbor is an asshole but we don't like hanging out with him now.
My main problem with Hizbollah is their ideology and how they try to impose it on their brethren.
For now they used soft tactics; but after the recent events that happened during the Lebanese revolution ; I am afraid that they'll start using force to impose their vision for the country and for the community.
With all the bad things that Amal movement represents; I'm glad that they exist and I hope that they regain some popularity or that other parties with secular ideologies can rise up and start standing in the face of Hizbollah.
As for their weapons; I believe that if it was not them; it will be someone else; the region there seybeh; and the leb army is too weak to make an initiative.
