    Dear Suzanne,
    I've followed hizbollahs news For many years now. You asked a question about 'suicide bombings' done by them. Please have your staff find one proven example of them committing such a crime. They won't find it. In fact hizbollah has never acted outsider the confines of it's war with Israel. Look it up. It's never terrorized the united states. Look it up. I'm in no way a supporter nor a detractor. Like you, I look for facts and truths.

    When has Hezbollah performed acts of "suicide bombings"?? CNN before publicly allowing junk news hit the airwaves, do you research! Also appears to be a "Museum" of war, much like the one I have visited in Vietnam "the Cu Chi tunnels, which attract tourists from all over the globe, displaying the US – Viet war, very educational and also a very in depth look at what real war is like. It appears that Hezbollah has done a very nice job in building the Museum I look forward to visiting this in the near future. CNN stop trying to fabricate enemies, and pursued others to hate.

    LR: How did you feel about Israel launching Cluster Bombs over Lebanon in the last hours of war in civilian populated areas. Illegal to International law. These cluster bombs have killed many children years after they were dropped deliberately by Israel. The Israels who dropped these in similar words "these people are murderers, plain and simple"

    news guy...

    Adam Shatz of The Nation magazine has described Islamic Jihad as "a precursor to Hezbollah, which did not yet officially exist" at the time of the bombings Islamic Jihad took credit for.[7] Jeffrey Goldberg says

    Using various names, including the Islamic Jihad Organization and the Organization of the Oppressed on Earth, Hezbollah remained underground until 1985, when it published a manifesto condemning the West, and proclaiming, “.... Allah is behind us supporting and protecting us while instilling fear in the hearts of our enemies.”[8]

    A 2003 decision by an American court named Islamic Jihad as the name used by Hezbollah for its attacks in Lebanon, and parts of the Middle East, and Europe.[9] Just as Hezbollah used another name Islamic Resistance, or al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya, for its attacks against Israel.[10]

    Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for killing marines in beirut with a suicide truck bomb. 241 marines dead

    Bravo, bravo, really some terrible journalism. All we learn about in this piece is that the two journalists think the theme park is "bizarre" and surreal" but nothing about Hezbollah itself, their history, what else they do aside from violence–actually all we know about them after that piece is that the US government has designated them a terrorist organization. How narcissistic to to spend so much time talking about how you feel at a place you know nothing about! Such a waste of time and another instance of the American media echo chamber.
