  1. I'm a bit disappointed with the way the facts are presented in this article. I'm not a supporter of the Clintons, on the contrary I'm a Trump supporter. Yet if the author of the article is a trump advisor, I'm a little concerned. Although hezballah is classified as a terrorist organization, they are also a legal political party in the Lebanese government. They run schools, hospitals and many other institutions that help everyday citizens. Obviously if they attack Israel that would be a condemnable act, but when Israel attacks or invades they have every right to defend there themselves and Lebanon, just like Israel rightfully defends itself if attacked. As far as Mr. Chaghouri, this is the first time I read or know of him, if he supports Michel Aoun and the free patriotic movement party in Lebanon doesn't mean he supports hezballah. Just like when republicans and democrats or any parties work together in any country means they are being bipartisan not adopting the other party's beliefs and goals. 

    I hope the author is aware of all the nuances of the politics in Lebanon and the rest of the Middle East, otherwise Mr. Trump can get better advise from any 7 year old living in he Middle East!

  2. Mr.Saab says, "Although hezballah is classified as a terrorist organization, they are also a legal political party in the Lebanese government. They run schools, hospitals and many other institutions that help everyday citizens." Hezbollah is not just "classified" as a terrrorist organization, it is in fact a terrorist organization.
