Michael Totten, continuing his crash course on Lebanese politics, pays a visit to Hezbollah's turf:

East and West Beirut are as free-wheeling as Hong Kong, but Hezbollahland is a virtually sovereign fascist police state. It is so near to downtown I can walk to it. Now that I've been there and know how close by it is, I can almost feel its breath on my neck.

UPDATE: More background information at The Lebanese Bloggers. It's worth keeping an eye on Across The Bay too.
