In this Friday, Feb. 8, 2013 photo, Lebanese pop idol Fadel Shaker, listens to Sheik Ahmad al-Assir, unseen, a hard-line Sunni Lebanese cleric, deliver a sermon in support of Syrian rebel fighters and Syrian refugees, after the Friday prayer, in Beirut, Lebanon. Lebanese pop idol Fadel Shaker shot to stardom crooning ballads that earned him the nickname "The King of Romance." He disappeared as a bearded, gun-toting Sunni hard-liner in a shootout with the army in the coastal city of Sidon. Shaker's transformation from entertainer to militant extremist spotlights a broader phenomenon in Lebanon: the drift of its Sunni Muslim community away from its traditional moderate leadership to _ in some cases _ hard-line, sectarian preachers.
