Overlooked story in English-Language media: Rapprochement between Hizbullah+Sunni resistance forces

So much ink was spilled over the last four years of the Syria conflict about how Hizbullah’s popularity was eroding and how its former sunni allies like Hamas were leaving it etc.

Unfortunately, now that the dynamic has evidently reversing – and in very interesting ways – we are not seeing stories about that reversal and its implications – nor are we seeing a deeper understanding of how momentary assertions about “street” popularity or political alliances are or are not embedded, how deeply and why – and what can shake that degree of embeddedness.

Oh well.
