This has been the theme of the newws coverage down here as well. Tonite on the multicultural channel, SBS,  the commentator talked of Hizballah's "lofty" promises to help people.  The tone of the report was throughout filled with a frustration that Hizballah would "take advantage" of the current situation to win the hearts and minds of the Lebanese public.  Of course yet again the reporter was seeing the Hizballah as in some sense outside the Lebanese people.

I loved the reference to the "cash strapped" government in the article Richard posted.  This is the government of  multi-millionaires like Hariri and Jumblatt who live in luxurious palaces.
