Never heard of this group, but I just had to blog about it:
Videos of an obscure armed group are circulating on the net. The “Islamic Arab Resistance” present themselves as the Shia rival to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Watching their training footage however, it doesn’t seem to hold true…
Here are some pictures to help you visualize what this new Islamic Resistance looks like and why they fail to meet the Hezbollah mark:
So this new group seems to be coming out from under the covers though they have no plans to enter politics at the moment:
They’ve already stated their intention to boycott the Lebanese elections planned for 7 June, which they consider corrupt because of “massive financial bribery”.
I’m glad to see that they have morals. Also, if you would like, you can talk directly to their leader, Secretary General Mohammed Ali al-Hussein; he’s published his mobile number and email address on the his own website.
So if you want to give him a ring (or if you are the Mossad and want to target him), just visit their website for information.
In the words of Beirut-born Serj Tankian: Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!
