Ridiculous News

Soon I will publish my interview with Lebanese Druze leader and Member of Parliament Walid Jumblatt.

In the meantime, here is some news from my favorite failed state.

CONFISCATORS: The Lebanese army confiscated some of Hezbollah’s weapons. Hezbollah says give ’em back.

PANDERERS: The Lebanese army pretends it seized Hezbollah’s weapons to fight Israel.

FLATTERERS: Hezbollah pretends to respect the Lebanese army.

TOOLS: Lebanon’s Prime Minister Fouad Seniora gives Hezbollah yet another excuse to call him a “Zionist hand” by dismissing Hassan Nasrallah’s most recent claim about the supposedly expansionist Little Satan.

UPDATE: "Tools" and "Little Satan" are sarcasm.
