Iran Is Financing Terrorism In The U.S. Through Hezbollah: Iran and Hezbollah Are Enemies Of The U.S. Will the U.S. Recognize This Reality?

A Wall Street Journal editorial yesterday provided details that indicate that Iran is, through a surrogate, Hezbollah, recruiting U.S. citizens to terrorize the U.S. and also Panama. Iran provides about $200 million per year of financing to Hezabollah. We are at war with Iran and Hezbollah. Iran sponsored Hezbollah, is fighting on behalf of Assad in Syria, and with Iran supplied missiles, threatening Israel with a war in Israel, from its base in Lebanon.

Hezbollah has been recruiting supporters in the U.S., including two identified last Thursday. They have been planning terrorist activities in the U.S. and Panama, where Hezbollah has perpetrated terrorist activities going back to the early 2000’s.

Hezbollah – the Party of God – is a Shia Islamist political, military and social organization that wields considerable power in Lebanon. It began as a movement in the 1980’s, with the support of Iran, during the Israeli occupation of Lebanon. Israel withdrew from Lebanon in 2000. Hezbollah took this opportunity to strengthen its’ military capabilities, and used those resources against Israel in the 2006 war. Its’ military capabilities rival those of the Lebanese army. It has also expanded its political activities, and effectively has veto power in the Lebanon cabinet. It adds political instability in Lebanon, but is popular in the Shia community.

Hezbollah has been fighting in Syria on behalf of the Assad regime. As the war in Syria escalated, thousands of Hezbollah militants went to fight for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, proving decisive in helping pro-government forces recover ground lost to rebels, particularly along the Lebanese border. They appear to be honing their village running skills, with the objective of expanding beyond their base in Lebanon.
Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria, however, has sharpened sectarian tensions in Lebanon, where the group has been targeted in a series of bombings by Sunni militants.

Hezbollah is designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and other western powers, Israel, the Gulf Arab countries and the Arab League.

ArmchairPolitician.US:
Iran is using its’ proxy, Hezbollah, to find sympathizers in the U.S. that can undertake acts of terror. This is no different than what ISIS is doing, and makes it clear that beside ISIS, Iran and Hezbollah are also trying to attack the U.S. at home. Another Iranian proxy is the Houthis in Yemen, making it clear that the U.S. needs to support Saudi Arabia and the UAE in Yemen. With the increasingly global reach of many terrorist organizations, the U.S. needs to recognize that we are in a war with the terrorists.
