The Sunni and the Shia just as with the Palestinians and Hezbollah need each other for many reasons including to confront growing Islamophobia...

(AIN EL HELWEH CAMP, Lebanon) - Fatah member stands guard at the entrance of the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh It’s not just the leadership of the Zionist regime still occupying Palestine, six decades after the 1948 Nakba, that appears to be salivating at the current stoking of current tensions between the Palestinian Resistance and in some respects, its historic off-spring Hezbollah.

Palestinians inside Palestine, in the refugee camps dotted around the Arab world are all at the mercy of the elements.
