Mughniyeh was the deadliest terrorist against the United States until bin Laden’s al Qaeda topped Hezbollah on the most American’s killed list.
Today, Feburary 14th, was an active day in Lebanon. The March 14th Alliance held a rally in remembrance of assassinated former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The assassination has given Hezbollah the chance to counter the rally with a massive funeral for Mughniyeh on the same day. The rallies are five miles apart but bad weather and efforts by both sides will prevent massive violence… for now.
Hezbollah has declared war on Israel. However, the group has been in a state of aggression since its creation so time will tell if the expected reprisal attacks are just that or the opening of a new front.
Meanwhile, the world continues to ignore the captive state of Lebanese democracy.
