Free lebanon from Haya Binna's perspective

I have gotten to this link through a friend of mine and it shows a clear point about the Haya Benna group.
Please note that free Lebanon area:

It is an amazing thing that Jabal Loubnan is free Lebanon sayid moustakil.

Assaad, what is the "clear point" that you think this link shows about the Hayya Benna group? And why do you it is that Jabal Loubnan was depicted in that graphic as "free Lebanon"? And why do you find that amazing? I am not asking with cynicism or sarcasm; I am asking with utmost earnestness (or as much as I can muster), trying to understand your point of view before I write more.

I am all for Hayya Bina's proclaimed goal, the abolishment of the sectarian system in Lebanon, and embracing a true secularism that I see as the only true solution for a mixed pot such as Lebanon. However, I am very afraid that, contrary to its message, Hayya Bina seems to be taking religious sides, which would be devastating to it as an organization (and heavily ironic and depressing). See, even though I come from a shiite family in what Hayya Bina proclaims to be the "non-free" Dahyeh, I am absolutely not pro-Hizbullah, or any religious fanaticism of any shape or form (Muslim, Christian, Druze, Jewish, Buddhist, or whatever). And Hayya Bina seems pretty focused, from the number of entries on their main page, on Hizbullah. I am afraid that can muddy the point for all and render the entire organization self-contradictory. Now, what good do you think such an overly simplistic and biased graphic serves? I would like to hear your take on it.

arch.memory, don't take it in a wrong way. I already discussed another post where i critisized the fact that Hayya Bina considers HA as integrists (see their web page). It doesn't mean i hate them or i dislike their activities, but the way they present some issues is not clear and i feel that i need to read between the lines to understand what they mean.

In fact some of the zones they mentioned as "Free..." are not really under the lebanese authority (unfortunately)...

In my point of view, only Jabal Lebnein , inside their map, is "Sayyid 7orr Moustaqill". This is my pint of view... maybe i am wrong!

But "Sayyid 7orr Moustaqil.." is a huge word that we don't have completely till now. Corruptions are still working; outside intervention (Syria, Iran, USA, ...) is still here.

On the other hand, they insist in their talks about HA case(especially nowadays), that's why i consider their ideas amazing cause they cover one part of the problem we have nowadays and not all.
