Iran has Totalitarian Control of Lebanon

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah and its allies have won just over half the seats in Lebanon’s parliamentary elections, while Sunni Prime Minister Saad Hariri, with close ties to Saudi Arabia sustained losses. His Future Movement party has so far lost five seats in Beirut, once considered his party’s stronghold. 

An Israeli security cabinet minister said the gains in the vote showed that Israel should not distinguish between the Lebanese state and Hezbollah in any future war.
