By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Paying attention to how Arabs relate to other Arabs can be instructive.
Tunisia is sponsoring an Anti-Zionism Conference. Not unusual.
Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad were prevented from entering. Unusual.
Al Mayadeen, a Hezbollah TV network in Lebanon, reported today that the Hezbollah delegation was not permitted to enter the hall where the Anti-Zionism conference was taking place.
And the Islamic Jihad group was prevented from landing in Tunis.
The story was picked up by several other media outlets.
Why were Hezbollah and barred? The answer is simple.
Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad of Lebanon have sided with Assad and with Iran. And that makes them pariahs in the Arab world - even when it comes to the hatred of Zionism.
Now that is interesting.
