Hizbullah risks becoming part of 'business as usual' in Beirut

The Daily Star - Editorial - Hizbullah risks becoming part of 'business as usual' in Beirut: "Hizbullah's members, who are highly intelligent and motivated people, are surely capable of designing reform programs aimed at achieving this goal. They have proven their competence by generating proposals for economic and bureaucratic reform, but these ideas have only been circulated in specialized forums and have not been put forth to the Parliament or the public.

The current leaning of Hizbullah's weight in the direction of the status quo is a dangerous tendency. It is not enough for Hizbullah to simply participate in the dirty game that is Lebanese politics. The party's goal ought to be the transformation of the Lebanese state and the establishment of a clean, fair and efficient system of governance."
