Hizballah is the only Lebanese party that retains an armed wing 15 years after the civil war and five years after Israel's departure from southern Lebanon. But the party rejects the charge that it is "a state within a state," and through its enhanced political participation, it has arguably conferred irreversible recognition upon the non-Islamic Lebanese state.
