When Jamil al-Sayyed was endorsed by Hezbollah for May's parliamentary elections, Speaker Nabih Berri's Amal Movement was not thrilled.Sayyed Tuesday launched his second attack in as many days against Berri's circle.The day's comments were not the first exchange between Sayyed and supporters of Berri.MP Hani Qobeisi told Sayyed that, if he were in his shoes, he would seek good relations with Amal for the benefit of the Bekaa.Much to the ire of Berri and his supporters, Sayyed is in Parliament and it remains to be seen whether he will succeed Berri, even though he claims he's not interested.
