Yet Another Way of Seeing Hezbollah

The main problem with the western nations, that they see Hezbollah the same way they used to see any other Islamic radical movement, such as Al Qaida, etc. For them they are both Islamic groups who are armed as well. So it's hard for them to see any difference between them. So, I'll try here to write some of the major differences between Hezbollah and Al Qaida - for example - in order to help you find out why you are supposed to see them in a totally different way. First of all, Ideologically, they are different, Hezbollah are Shiits, while Al Qaida are Salafys/Wahabys - not Sunnis, as Sunnis are like Shiits, they believe that it is religiously forbidden for them to kill innocent people. Al Qaida doesn't have problem in targeting civilians - September 11th - as far as those civilians belong to their enemy nations. The United States government is totally biased to Israel, so according to Al Qaida point of view, they can kill the American people as a sort of punishment to their government. On, the other hand Hezbollah never kill civilians, even in the current was of Israel on Lebanon, they didn't target Israeli civilians till Israel started to kill dozens of Lebanese Civilians. This may be clear in Hassan Nasrallah's latest speech, when he said that they prefer that Israel stop targeting the Lebanese civilians as they prefer to have their fight against soldiers only. Hezbollah's war is against occupation forces (IDF), that are occupying their own country - Lebanon - and not a war carried in some foreign country. Finally, most of the Arabs and Muslims respect Hezbollah, while few of them respect Al Qaida.
