Beirut, Lebanon (CNN) -- The southern, dirt-poor Beirut suburb of Dahiyeh holds many secrets. After all, this is Hezbollah's stronghold, the powerbase of the militant Shia Muslim organization that has dominated Lebanese politics in recent years. Bombed out buildings, destroyed during the Lebanon War in 2006, still litter the roadside. The whereabouts of the movement's leader Hassan Nasrallah, whose ubiquitous portrait stares back from countless road-side billboards, is unknown. But there is one secret that hides behind uniform gray walls, as if ashamed of its presence: Lebanon's only golf course.

This is a really creepy read. Makes me want to vomit.
Tell me what you think as well after reading the article.

I admire them wanting to move on and not dredge up past problems considering that they, as a mix of religious groups, need to work together.

The club should be turned in a memorial park or something, but I guess there's no money in that.
