    May be Nassrallah looks like he is winning but it is because of the fog of the war. Lot of Shiites and Sunnis directly influenced and impressed by the war stories, some of them are merely Hizballah propaganda. But the day after the Lebanese will have to deal with the gray reality of rehabilitation and rebuilding not only the damages of war but also the sensitive fractions of the Lebanese society. Through the process of rebuilding Lebanon Hizballah status will get its natural proportion and lot of Lebanese will understand that they can't let the Hizballah gain military power next to legitimate and sovereign Lebanese government. This experience will straiten the Sunni states in the ME in their historical battle for hegemony within the Islam. I think that Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and northern African countries should take all those implications while expressing their political decleration and deeds. I think Saudi should break the barriers and talks directly with Israeli official
