God's army has plans to run the whole Middle East

Sunday Times reported God's army has plans to run the whole Middle East

God needs to keep a better eye on what His army is doing.
Hezbollah, the group at the heart of the Lebanese conflict, is the spearhead of Iran’s ambitions to be a superpower, says Iranian commentator Amir Taheri ‘You are the sun of Islam, shining on the universe!”
And that sun is about to be eclipsed.
This is how Muhammad Khatami, the mullah who was president of Iran until last year, described Hezbollah last week. It would be no exaggeration to describe Hezbollah — the Lebanese Shi’ite militia — as Tehran’s regional trump card. Each time Tehran has played it, it has won. As war rages between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon, Tehran policymakers think that this time, too, they can win. “I invite the faithful to wait for good news,” Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said last Tuesday. “We shall soon witness the elimination of the Zionist stain of shame.”
Considering what Israel did in six days back in 1967 when attacked by four Arab armies, I suspect the stain will be what is left of Iran.

The Sunday Times gives us insight into trying to understand the history and status of Hezbollah. Most of the rest of the press casts them as a rabble of fanatical rebels. No, in fact they are pretty much a government it seems. But their power has two pillars, without which it would diminish. The first seems to be Iran. Iran funds Hezbollah and supplies them with both arms and ideology. The second is war and the need to keep fighting. Peace means losing their reason for being- the fight for Islam and the destruction of Israel. With this they can keep convincing the population they control (some 400000 people) of their radical ideology- on which their unofficial state is founded. With peace, there is no reason for Hezbollah not to submit to the central Lebanese government and Iran then loses its substantial influence in that part of the world. War is in their interest- that is why they are fighting.

Hezbollah does not understand what the word peace means.
