Khalid Sagiyyah on Hizbullah's belated realization of the importance of social justice issues. "Both Hizbullah and the opposition rush to open economic and social dossiers whenever they are in a tight corner. For years, they have stood by as the country was being carved among a few. If Hizbullah is raising these issues as part of its political build up, then this build up can take place without further mistakes on the social scene. But if it has taken the decision to oppose the systematic pillage of Lebanon by the neoliberals, then it knows which doors to knock" (My rapid and bad translation but I think the gist is there).
