Stones and glasshouses


Hezbollah is talking about suing the US government and Lebanese NGOs that accept American money.

The reasoning behind this is that the US, through these NGOs, is slandering the organization and tarnishing its image.

The gist of the claim is that the US, through the NGOs, is brainwashing Lebanese youth against the party and intervening in internal Lebanese politics. The irony of this isn’t lost on most commentators, given that, allegedly, major donations to the party originate in Iran.

Pot, meet my friend, kettle.

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
