In this Thursday February 25, 2010 file photo, released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, Hezbollah leader sheik Hassan Nasrallah, right, speaks with Syrian President Bashar Assad, left, upon their arrival for a dinner, in Damascus, Syria.

Sheik Ahmad Assir (left) greets supporters to his protest camp in the southern Lebanon port city of Sidon, declaring it an uprising against Hezbollah’s weapons. While the hardline Sunni cleric and his followers may not be a direct threat to Hezbollah, his willingness to publicly confront the terrorist group with strong ties to Syrian President Basher Assad underlines the dangers the group faces as it tries to retain the power and influence it has built up over 30 years.
