I visited an interesting talk on Hizbullah yesterday. It basically gave me an impression of the organisation that it substitutes the state. The problem with substituting the state in Lebanon by organisations like Hizbullah is that they bear no much responsibility for what they do, especially with regard to terrorist activities against Israel.
The presenter admitted that Lebanon is a failed or a weak state and there are no prospects of it becoming strong state in the foreseeable future, “because it is a small state with no resources, no strong sense of national identity, etc.”. Then I thought, that some Arab countries do not recognize that Israel has the right to exist, but probably some Arab countries like Lebanon in fact have no right to exist themselves or at least possess this right to a far lesser extent, than Israel.
