Ah ha. That possibly explains a great deal. One could almost have
guessed it but
just not been so bold. Was mass communist 'entryism' into an originally
"Islamist' anti-occupation resistance movement an important factor
transforming it into something far more secular in reality and far more
effective than it would have been if it had stuck to some of the
original shibboleths, sectarianism and fundamentalism inherent in its
founding ideology?

"In writing my book on suicide attackers, I had researchers scour
Lebanese
sources to collect martyr videos, pictures and testimonials and the
biographies of the Hezbollah bombers. Of the 41, we identified the
names,
birth places and other personal data for 38. Shockingly, only eight were
Islamic fundamentalists. Twenty-seven were from leftist political groups
like the Lebanese Communist Party and the Arab Socialist Union. "  --
