DO THE SUNNI RULE IRAN?:

Siniora Stands Fast (David Ignatius, December 12, 2006, Washington Post)

The Lebanese not so long ago liked to refer to their gaudy capital as "the Paris of the Orient." But on Sunday afternoon, with more than a half-million pro-Hezbollah demonstrators chanting "Death to America!" and "Death to Israel!" in the heart of downtown, the Lebanese capital seemed more like a vision of Tehran.

If Tehran hosted a minority-imposed regime that discriminated against the Shi'a majority.

If that doesn't sound like Paris, I don't know what does.

The Shia revival: "Death to America, death to Israel."

Remember, dear Wackistanis, The hidden imam makes bullets bounce off.
