President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism advisor John Brennan created a stir recently when he talked of building up the “more moderate elements” of the terrorist group Hezbollah.
But in response to such an idea, one Christian member of Lebanon’s Parliament said, “Good luck with that.”
“Hezbollah is a very dangerous party because they are trying to impose to Lebanon their policy and their vision of jihad and martyrdom,” said Nadim Gemayel, member of the Lebanon Parliament. “And this is unacceptable.”
Gemayel has called for Hezbollah to disarm. He told CBN News in an exclusive interview that the Shiite terror militia has hijacked his country.
“It’s abiding to the rules of the Iranian revolution,” Gemayel said of the gorup. “But moreover, I think that with the support, of course, of the Iranian arms and the money and the financing of the Iranians and from the facilities that Syria is providing to Hezbollah, we are having a party — a military party — growing day after day and year after year — especially after the war of 2006.”
