Mahmoud Yunis is the smartest student in his Lebanese university's science program. His political affiliation is Hezbollah. Every week, he organizes young Shiites to demonstrate in front of the American embassy, convinced that the U.S. and Israel are his enemies. His views are widely held by his generation of Shiites from the south.
