Praise for Hizbullah, Obama

Hizbullah's unbudging resistance to Israel – and the results that has achieved – explains its clout in the Arab world

Current western support for Arab dictators and the associated labelling of resistance movements as terrorist organisations may not be to its best interest. Striking mutually beneficial deals with those that more closely represent Arab populations rather than with the corrupt dictators that rule them may have better long-term pay-offs. Perhaps the election of a new US president will usher a more peaceful era for the war-weary Middle East.
