A critical view of Hezbollah...

Hezbollah is publicly criticized in Lebanon.
When Mona Fayad saw Lebanon engulfed in violence, she couldn't keep silent. The psychology professor at Lebanese University did something almost no Shi'ite intellectual dares to do in Beirut , at least in public: criticize Hezbollah.

In a scathing essay titled "To be a Shi'ite now," Fayad attacked fellow Shi'ites who, she says, blindly follow the leadership of Hezbollah on a path she described as :no different from suicide."

Her bold and unusual stance has sparked debate in the daily newspaper An-Nahar, where it was published, and it has made Fayad something of a celebrity.

"What does it mean to be a Shi'ite for the majority of Shi'ites now, at this critical period?" Fayad wrote. "It means entrusting your fate to the wise and infallible leadership without daring to ask any question."

To be a Shi'ite now "is to block your mind" and let Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, "command you, drive you, decide for you what he wants from the weapons of Hezbollah, and force on you a victory that is no different from suicide," Fayad wrote. "To be a Shi'ite and dare such writing and such thinking means that you are a collaborator and a traitor."

Since then, Fayad has been inundated with calls and e-mails from friends and strangers . "People thank me, encourage me, and ask me if I am scared," Fayad said. "But I am not scared because I live in a country where a bomb can fall on my head at any time, so I want to express my opinion."

Thank you for posting! I was wondering whether anyone in Lebanon had the brains to see through Hezbollah!

Muslims comitting suicide is a good thing and should be encouraged, however, they should be prevented from taking others with them when they suicide themselves. If that means killing them first - then so be it.

The Professor understands the moral bankruptcy of the culture of death that Muslims embrace so strongly - and she's right of course, but if they want to see their kids off as suicide bombers then it's better to simply kill them first.
