The Social Work by Hizballah

Every so often one hears that the so-called terrorist organizations such as Hizballah are doing the people in the area they control a great service by providing social work, in the form of schools, hospitals and such institutions. Which on the surface seems to indicate that they do care for the people and often mitigates their terrorist status in the medias. However, the purpose of undertaking such social work, does not seem to be for the benefit of the people it was supposed to help, but an integral part of their overall strategy of winning the PR war as well as winning the struggle against Israel, as the following letter to the editor of Die Tageszeitung, from a Lebanese Shiite, explaining Hezbollah?s evil strategy:

I lived until 2002 in a small southern village near Mardshajund that is inhabited by a majority of Shias like me. After Israel left Lebanon, it did not take long for Hezbollah to take have its say in other towns. Received as successful resistance fighters and armed to the teeth, they stored rockets in bunkers in our town as well. The social work of the Party of God consisted in building a school and a residence over these bunkers! A local sheikh explained to me laughing that the Jews would lose in any event because the rockets would either be fired at them or if they attacked the rockets depots, they would be condemned by world opinion on account of the dead civilians. These people do not care about the Lebanese population, they use them as shields, and, once dead, as propaganda. As long as they continue existing there, there will be no tranquility and peace.
