    "Bush wouldn`t even know that Hezbollah arose after Israel`s 1982 invasion of southern Lebanon. It proably wouldn`t exist but for Israel`s occupation there." Hizbullah was created by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and neither "Israel" nor "Zionists" appears in their original manifesto in connection with a presence on Lebanese soil. the only mention is of the wholesale destruction of Israel, which they refuse to spell out by name: "our struggle will end only when this entity [Israel] is obliterated." By all accounts, Hizbullah should have ceased to exist as an armed entity when the UN recognized the full Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000. It's existance as an armed para-military organization is in fact illegal, as was its cross-border attack on Israel in 2006. You laugh at Bush and call him an idiot, but I think you misoverestimate your own intelligence! Were it not for Carter, Iran, the parent of Hizbullah, might never have slipped into Islamic fundamentalism.
