Hizballah


My Lebanese friend has advised me that this is the correct spelling for this terrorist group, so I shall utilise this spelling in all treatment hence of the subject.

One thing I find striking as we analyze the conflict in Israel and Lebanon is the amount of new information we discover each day. This information invariably seems to serve mainly to further muddy the issue. But the revelation that Hizballah is so highly active within the US is particularly disturbing, and I think it really underlines the reasons why Islamic extremism should be treated as the major threat to world peace in our time (as I explained in yesterday’s post “The New War”). I urge you to read this piece from NPR’s website that details how Hizballah is no new enemy to the US and how active they remain on our own soil.
