he Daily Star - Politics - Anti-Hizbullah leaflets spread concern about Sidon's unity: "A statement signed by the 'Supporters of the New Lebanon' was circulated Tuesday in South Lebanon criticizing Hizbullah. Similar leaflets were distributed last week, both are viewed as an attempt to undermine the port city's unity and coexistence between Shiites and Christians.
The new statement accused Hizbullah of driving the country to civil war, saying 'you are a bunch of Muslim mercenaries and far from the democratic regime of the state,' it continued, 'your actions reflect barbarism, arrogance and hegemony.'
The statement mentioned a member of the Loyalty to Human Beings Movement who was beaten and insulted by Hizbullah members in Roueiss on Monday, December 14, 2005 during a traffic violation by a member of the Saksaki family.
The statement condemned the incident, saying it recalled the Syrian regime's humiliating actions and stressing that the Syrian style has been adapted by it's friends, particularly Hizbullah. The statement noted Hizbullah creates a state inside a state."
