Bashir sent me this passage with the title of plagiarism. "In many respects Hizbullah is a Leninist organization, a vanguard party focused on implementing a revolutionary ideology." I had written an article in Middle Eastern Studies back in the early 1990s with this title: "Ideology and Practice of Hizbullah in Lebanon: Islamization of Leninist Organizational Principles', Middle Eastern Studies, 27, July 1991. I will let readers judge although I can't see this author reading Lenin.
