Hezbollah Terror Group Takes Over Lebanon’s Government

Arab Spring.
The Hezbollah terror group took over the Lebanon government this week.
CBS News reported, via ROP:

Hezbollah and its allies rose to a position of unprecedented dominance in Lebanon’s government Monday, giving its patrons Syria and Iran greater sway in the Middle East.

Lebanon Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced a new Cabinet dominated by the militant group and its allies after the country has operated for five months without a functioning government. The move caps Hezbollah’s steady rise over decades from resistance group against Israel to Lebanon’s most powerful military and political force.

Opponents of Hezbollah – which the U.S. considers a terrorist organization – say having it in control of Lebanon’s government could lead to international isolation. The group’s most ardent supporters are Iran and Syria, which dominated Lebanon for 29 years.
