U.S. Efforts to Stop Hezbollah Growth Falling Short
Israel Hayom – Hezbollah is expanding its global operations, especially in South America, and U.S. efforts to stop the terrorist group are falling short, a U.S. lawmaker has said, placing partial blame for the situation on Europe’s unwillingness to classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
Rep. Ted Poe (R-Tex.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, said at a meeting of the subcommittee on March 20, that “years ago Hezbollah was a limited, regional threat. Today, it is an international movement conducting terrorist and criminal acts all over the world.”
