Lebanon and Hezbollah | DW Documentary 4
In Lebanon, Hezbollah now controls broad areas of political and social life. It has become a state within a state. How can the "Party of God" be confronted?

In Lebanon, no important political decisions are taken any more without Hezbollah, the Shiite "party of God". Since the end of the civil war in 1990, multi-ethnic and multi-religious Lebanon has been exposed to growing political divisions. Supported and financed by Iran, Hezbollah now threatens to destabilize the country and the region. As a political party, Hezbollah holds two cabinet positions in the government. The Sunni Prime Minister Saad Hariri is dependent on the goodwill of Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s Secretary General − not least because Hezbollah’s militia is far stronger than the Lebanese army. In his impressive speeches, Nasrallah threatens not only Israel, but also the US. Israel sees Hezbollah as the extended arm of its arch enemy Iran. A renewed war between Hezbollah and Israel would raze Lebanon to the ground and also cause considerable damage in Israel. Tensions between the US and Iran increase the risk of conflict. This film shows how Hezbollah has skillfully increased its power in recent years and developed into a state within a state. But there is growing resistance. Civil society forces are trying to overcome religious conflicts and use democratic means to break new ground.

Hizbullah is the only entity that has the best interests of the region against all the aggressors and their creations (ISIS).

No UN or anyone else is stood against the invasion of Israel, no one helped Palestinians, Syrias or Iraqis when ISIS were killing Yazidis, Sunnis, Kurds and Shias, thats right only Iran and Hizbullah did.
Right now all the world is quiet when people in Libya, Bahrain and Yemen are being killed by the Saudi's, whose helping then, whose standing up to the injustice? that's right ONLY HIZBULLAH.

This documentary clearly has been funded by the very powers that dont want any one standing up to their injustice and in destabilising the whole region, instead they want to see blood thirsty Humanity killers like ISIS and their makers (Saudi's, US, and Israel) take full control of the region.
