Ironically, though, columns that I wrote four or five years ago about the need for transfer are now being received as a new 'solution' and revelation. I remember having many long talks about this very topic years ago with
New thought? Naw...Maybe people are finally coming to the realization that, just as Hezbollah should not survive as a country within a country, so too
