Very useful resource on Hizballah

A primer, from Middle East Report, on Hizballah, written by anthropologist Lara Deeb. Deeb is the author of the award-winning An Enchanted Modern: Gender and Public Piety in Shi'i Lebanon.

As noted by The Arabist, it shows: "there is no distinct 'Hizbullah' before 1985, it is not clear what Hizbullah’s responsibility with the 1982 Marine barracks bombing is, and it cannot honestly be called a terrorist group like Al Qaeda."
