Hezbollah

The Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah (“the Party of God”) emerged in Lebanon in 1982 following Israel’s invasion to halt cross-border guerilla attacks by the Palestine Liberation Organization. Despite its rhetoric of freeing Lebanon from foreign occupation, Hezbollah has made no secret that it is heavily supported by foreign powers, namely the Islamist Iranian regime. The group has been responsible for murderous terror attacks against Israeli, American, and Jewish targets around the globe. Like Iran, Hezbollah considers the United States and Israel to be its chief enemies, which has led to a global terrorist campaign against the two nations.

Extremists: Their Words. Their Actions.

In Their Own Words:

The current stage demands that we exhaust the enemy until it whines and moans due to economic and military bleeding. It is in this context that the operations outside the theatre in which the enemy expects us to strike, operations on enemy soil and beyond enemy lines becomes evident.
