Soha, return to Hezbollah country

Posted by worriedlebanese on 04/03/2007

This is a very interesting documentary produced by a Swiss tv on the aftermath of the summer war and the support that Hezbollah enjoys in Shiite circles. The documentary revolves around interviews conducted by Soha Bechara, a former member of the communist resistance against Israel.
The interaction she has with pro-Hezbollah Shiites in the South is very interesting because they see in her a fellow resistant (she was held in Khiam for several years for trying to assassinate the Lebanese Southern Army’s commanding officer), even though she is secular (probably atheist) and of a christian-communist background.
