Amid Oil Price Drop, Hezbollah To Hold Bake Sale – satire

unnamed-6Beirut, January 27 – A nearly 50-percent plunge in the price of crude oil over the course of three months now threatens the liberality with which Iran has showered support on its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah, and the Shiite political party and militia plans to conduct a sale of homemade cookies and cakes to help offset the anticipated shortfall in funding…

The upcoming bake sale will be Hezbollah’s first. In 2006 the organization held a rummage sale to help clear space for an anticipated batch of rockets from Iran, but that event proved only a mixed success at best, since the storage depots were inconveniently scattered throughout Beirut in various residential buildings…

Several details of the bake sale remain to be finalized. …[T]hey are arguing that the sale should also have a booth or two selling some of the drugs that the movement grows in the Bekaa Valley instead of allocating them directly for export.
