Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran, is using its weapons for intimidation and political leverage. Read more:

On this webpage we have discussed several times the possibility of the prophecies coming from Daniel to come true in our time. The last entry in this regard was 2011 Feb 23 - Will Iran attack its neighbours? and I now bring a news item that brings some news about Lebanon and could indicate a development that gives rise for Iran, the ram in Daniel 8:4, to have a reason pushing westward:

 

Tens of thousands of supporters of Lebanon’s pro-Western opposition demonstrated in downtown Beirut on Sunday to demand that the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah give up its weapons.

The rally was a potent show of support for the former prime minister Saad Hariri, who moved into the opposition after Hezbollah and its allies forced the collapse of his government in January.

”We want to place the weapons at the disposal of the state because it is the state that unites us all, and it is the army that protects us all,” Mr. Hariri shouted as the protesters cheered and waved the Lebanese flag.

Mr. Hariri has taken a far stronger public stance against Hezbollah in recent weeks than he did during his 14 months as prime minister, suggesting that the country’s political deadlock is far from over.

Ghaleb Abu Zeinab, a member of Hezbollah’s political bureau, said the group would not respond to Sunday’s gathering.

But a slew of billboards has appeared in Beirut lately, declaring ”Israel also wants Hezbollah disarmed” - a clear message that the group considers its weapons a necessary safeguard against its enemies.

Mr. Hariri has accused Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran, of using its weapons for intimidation and political leverage.
