We are not all Hezbollah

There's a change happening in the Arab world. I've seen several examples this week, but here's one that sums it up:

Last week we were discussing events in Lebanon and by default my friend was on Nasrallah's side. I thoroughly explained the full dimension of what's happening in Lebanon. Today I met the guy and was greeted by a very nice surprise.

"You know, I supported Hezbollah when they were fighting Israel," he said. "But now, I am not sure. I mean Nasrallah is fighting against fellow Lebanese, fighting against an elected government. He's destroying Lebanon. I think Nasrallah is very selfish. I'm now against him."

"Good. Just don't forget to throw away the Nasrallah picture you have in your room," I said.
