are the Lebanese Shia the new Kurds?

Reader comment on item: Syria's Civil War Could Stabilize Its Region

It appears there's a stool-dance going on in the Middle East. Who will be left without a home when the music stops? After the last colonial reshuffle it was the Kurds who found themselves without a country.

I suspect the Lebanese Shia will be the new Kurds with nowhere to go.
