Israel and Hizballah on High Alert

Nicholas Blanford in TIME, here
".... These guys are very ready for war," says Amal Saad-Ghorayeb, a Hizballah expert with the Carnegie Endowment's Middle East Center in Beirut. But not everyone in south Lebanon is ready for another round with Israel. Many residents of the battle-scarred south are still repairing the damage of the 2006 war and the notion of another conflict striking the region is not welcomed, even among some Hizballah supporters. "God bless Nasrallah and the resistance. They have fought and sacrificed for Lebanon. But we are tired of wars and just want to raise our children in peace,..................................Yet every time Israel has used a heavy hand in Lebanon in the past, it resulted in increased support for Hizballah"
... and yet..!
