Clearly what is missing in Lebanon is a working class revolutionary party.
Any way you look at Hezbollah, it is not  such a party. It was very correct
to stand on the side of the Lebanese masses during the Israeli war against
Lebanon, and this meant  calling for a military block with Hezbollah. I
think you did it and so did I. However this tactic makes sense only from the
perspective of building a revolutionary party in Lebanon,  because Hezbollah
would prefer a deal with the imperialists and their local puppets which he
does now.

I did not refer to you in my political point about Leninism, and I do not
see the reason for you to react in overly sensative way
