"Illegitimate Rockets"

Via Dave in Jerusalem, a satirical clip about Hezbollah from Lebanese TV.

This is what's so sad about this war. Lebanon, even before the Cedar Revolution, was the suavest, hippest, most chic and Westernized of all Arab countries. Having an army of terrorists like Hezbollah gain leverage if not outright control of its governance is a catastrophe for civilization--as bad as having the PLO set up shop there back in the Seventies. Yet, even now, they can laugh about themselves--something Islamists and jihadis are famously unable to do.
