Hezbollah executing citizens in Lebanon

This is very disturbing, according to a news account witnesses say that Hezbollah has executed at least 18 Lebanese civilians in Tyre under the suspician that they may have helped Israel.

Hezbollah has laid seige to the village of Mari --a village composed of Lebanese Druze citizens who are opposed to Hezbollah,
"Residents who have recently escaped from Mari tell of a dramatic, desperate situation in the village. The Druse residents, who have no affinity at all for Hizbullah, resisted Hizbullah's attempts to enter the village. The IAF apparently and unwittingly assisted in their resistance by bombing the roads leading into the village, cutting off the militia's ability to enter the town, at least temporarily. Hizbullah responded by cutting off the town's electricity and water supply, essentially laying seige to a town on its own side of the border, hoping that its residents would pack up and leave."
The villagers are trying desperately to keep Hezbollah out of their village.

According to Rampurple, another Lebanese blogger, Hezbollah is also attacking the village of Ain Ebel with rockets

"Now here comes the most sickening part:
Hezbollah has been firing rockets from the village since Day 1 hiding behind innocent people’s places and even CHURCHES. No one is allowed to argue with the Hezbollah gunmen who wont hesitate to shoot you and i ve heard about more than one shooting incident including young men from the village and Hezbollah.
Urgent appeals have been done through phone calls from terrified people who wouldnt give out their name fearing Hezbollah might harm or even eliminate them."


Three other good blogs to check out are The Ouwet Front which provides a compelling analyses of why bringing international forces into Lebanon may not be such a good idea, and there is a good analyses of Hezbollah's aims over on Beirut 2 Bayside. He states "This is yet another indication that Hezbollah's plan all along was a classic coup d'etat..." And The Lebanese Political Journal has a good post that deals with conversations between Lebanese and Israelis and also paints a good picture of the many faces of Hezbollah supporters and why many do support Hezbollah --but without actually supporting the aims of Hezbollah. It is a good read.
