Worth, "UN Says Somalis Helped Hizballah
Fighters," The New York Times, 14 November 2006.
The responses of Israel and Hizballah
to the outcome of their 34-day "war" in the summer of 2006 could not be more different.
Gemayel praised Hizballah
for its role in ending the Israeli occupation, noted that the party has a sizable constituency and advocated engagement with it.
Lebanon should strengthen its overall efforts to disrupt and dismantle money laundering and terrorist financing activities, including those carried out by Hizballah
On June 30, 2011, the STL delivered to Lebanon's Prosecutor General an indictment containing arrest warrants for four Hizballah
members who are still at large.
s claim to be a domestic Lebanese resistance organization, its expansive global network seeks to extend its malign influence, and the influence of Hizballah
s patron Iran, throughout the Middle East and beyond.
He added that accusing President Sleiman of seeking to extend his tenure was just to pave the way for them ( March 8) to reach vacuum, saying" Hizballah
doesn't stand the presence of a state and a President keen on Lebanon's unity and sovereignty".
His fall would therefore deal a major blow to Tehran, significantly weaken Hizballah
, and dismantle the trilateral axis--the forces that may dominate Syria in the future are unlikely to seek an alliance with actors that helped Assad butcher his people.
CAIR has steadfastly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah
as terrorist groups.
The 2006 Israel-Hizballah
war provided graphic proof about extensive Syrian arms shipments to Hizballah
including both Syrian-made and foreign-made weapons.
Then, in March 2009, just weeks after the Administration nominated the first US ambassador to Damascus since the 2005 murder of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri, President Asad hosted Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad and Hizballah
leader Hassan Nasrallah, and publicly mocked Secretary of State Clinton.
2000 - Hizballah
and allies finally harried Israeli forces out of Lebanon - establishing another segment of Israel's defensible frontier, the old Lebanon-Palestine line, and demonstrating that the diarchy, invincible in conventional warfare, is vulnerable in asymmetric warfare.
