Fresh update on "hezbollah" discussed on Between The Lines

"The outcome was that Hezbollah's sense of invincibility was punctured. Their aura was punctured in these clashes because they lost a couple of hardcore fighters. And I think overall across the country, there was a sense of satisfaction that that had happened in that way and that they've got their nose bloodied and that it had become clear that they were not almighty and that somebody could take them down. But nobody absolutely nobody wants to see Civil War breakout. No one in this new parliament is going to demand a forceful solution to the arms of Hezbollah. That's not the way to go forward. Kim, there's one neighbor we haven't spoken about. What about the ongoing relationship and attitudes to Israel within Lebanon? Will this new parliament change anything? No. That's there's no relationship with Israel. Lebanon and Israel are officially still in a state of war. Dealing with Israel, traveling there, buying Israeli products are sanctioned by the law in Lebanon as treason. And there is no one in Lebanon at the moment who has any time to or any bandwidth to really discuss the bigger issue of Arab Israeli, the Arab Israeli conflict outside of the context of what is Hezbollah in Lebanon. What does it stand for and why is it still keeping its weapons arsenal? And has Banda is a problem on its own in the sense that it is now a regional paramilitary force with foot soldiers in Syria and Iraq and Yemen. And the discussion about Hezbollah is no longer so much for Lebanon discussion about the state of war or not with Israel, but a discussion of why does militia have the right to declare to decide unilaterally when to go to war without outside countries, whether it's Israel or whether it is sending troops and fighters to Syria. This was a unilateral decision that Hezbollah took in 2013, which really impacted Lebanon and which is something that will probably brought would probably be brought to the fore in the parliament to discuss Lebanon's defense strategy and how the arms of Hezbollah fit in or not. Kim as this parliament is convened and we know it could be a lengthy process as you were describing earlier, but what will you be looking for in terms of indications of how healthy or robust new political arrangements might be or otherwise? We're first looking at the election of a new Speaker of the House who unfortunately will be the same old Speaker of the House. Same one who's been around since 1992 for various reasons that have to do with the fact that the Speaker of the House is always from the Shia community that there are no independent shias who have been elected because of the stranglehold that the parties Hezbollah and Amal have on the community. So it will have to be somebody from that from one of those two parties and they will only put forward the same man who's been at this in this position for the last three decades. That's very. After that, we'll have to wait for the cabinet formation. And after that, does the presidential election in October?.

"Think is mostly aligned with surgery in terms of their anti Hezbollah position. So everyone is involved. Of course, has vanda will say that this is all America's doing that America's funding these independent opposition activists who are now members of parliament that this is a big plot. It's always very convenient in the Middle East to say it's all a plot by America. My understanding is that the U.S. stayed as far away as possible from all the individual candidates, but their influence played out in their position Vis-à-vis their very strong and firm position. Vis-à-vis the need for reforms. Their unwillingness to make more compromises with the establishment just for the sake of stability. They really pushed them hard. They played a role in convincing the Saudis to return to the stage. And they played a role in upholding an imposing sanctions on members of the cabinet or parliament that were corrupt like Gibraltar, the former minister of foreign affairs, son in law of the president or those who were involved directly or indirectly in the events that led up to the port last. So just to unpick that slightly Kim, if I understand you correctly, what you're suggesting is that the Americans may have played a role in trying to persuade the Saudis to kind of reenter the frame when it came to Lebanese politics and the Lebanese elections. The saddest did that by supporting pro Christian candidates who might unsettle Hezbollah, who are backed by Iran. Is that right? That's a perfect summary of my convoluted explanation. But it is extraordinary, isn't it? I mean, if you think about the layers of that and how as a Lebanese voter, you then go to a polling booth and really know who it is that you're voting for and where their connections and loyalties lie. That is not complicated for most Lebanese to figure out. I think most people know who's being backed by who, which parties are supported by which outside forces, not always financially. But I think when it comes to Hezbollah, I mean, that's very clear. And when it comes to the Lebanese forces, this Christian party, they won big this time in the election. They're sort of favorability is up because they stood up physically to Hezbollah in October last year when there was a clash around the issue of the port, the investigation into the port. And there were some armed clashes, which were very shocking because it's the first time that we'd seen such heavy clashes in Beirut, but in a way, although it was very much sectarian Hezbollah versus supporters of this Christian party Lebanese forces..

How Iran Uses Hezbollah to Conduct International Operations

"I'm continuing my discussion of Iran and its operations in other countries in the Middle East and even in North Africa. The article I'm discussing is written by Karim sajar poor in foreign affairs magazine and such a port makes the point that Iran uses its surrogate, which is Hezbollah, to conduct operations in a number of other countries, but particularly in Lebanon. Now Hezbollah is by far the most powerful force in Lebanon today. They just go about doing whatever they want. I mean, they want to assassinate a political opponent. That's it for him. They have they run their own underground economy. They've implanted thousands of rockets in Lebanon that have the capacity of striking Israel. And then one time Hezbollah claimed to be sort of its own organization. It was not part of Iran. But of late, they've become very explicit about their the fact that Hezbollah essentially is Iran. Here is Sheik and Ezra. This is by the way the founder and leader of Hezbollah. And he goes, as long as Iran has money, we have money. Just as we receive the rockets, we use to threaten Israel, we're receiving our money. So this is an azra la basically saying, hey, listen, I'm Iran's man outside of Iran. I do Iran's bidding and the Iranians are perfectly happy to fund me. Let's remember that Iran also uses Shia radicals and local groups in Iraq and they used it while America was in Iraq to sort of destabilize the Iraqi regime, which they were very successful in

"Did these results at least launch a few lifeboats given this terrible past decade of corruption and nepotism, not to mention mismanagement by political leaders. Well, this new parliament is certainly going to hold any new cabinet that is formed to account. They will hopefully do their job as legislators should in terms of questioning in terms of scrutinizing. And in terms of legislating and voting on issues of key concern, including IMF, a deal with the IMF for the recovery of Lebanon's economy, legislating on various issues like voting, age, issues that have to do with women's rights. And also, hopefully, they'll push for the investigation into the Beirut port blast to proceed. Can you imagine that some of those who stand accused of having played a role in the negligence that led to the port blast have been reelected as members of parliament, their members of the two main xia parties Hezbollah and the other one being Amal. That are, that need to be questioned by an investigative judge. But they're being protected by these political parties. So it's complex, but again, I like to be realistic, but also avoid all cynicism and acknowledge the achievement that was attained during these elections. Kim, could you talk a little bit about kind of everyday life now in Beirut and out in the countryside in Lebanon? How difficult is it to buy groceries, get access to medicines or healthcare, how do you go about filling filling your car with a tank full of petrol? What's the employment situation like? I mean, certainly alarm bells are ringing aren't they at every stage in the economy? Yes, alarm bells have been ringing for two years. And the entrenched system, the oligarchy, the hypocrisy, whatever you want to call it slash militias because a lot of these parties are remnants of the Lebanese Civil War, Hezbollah is still armed. They had too much at stake and too much to lose to let go. So they were, you know, I think what the foreign minister meant was that they were continuing to play the music while the Titanic was sinking and not caring about saving the country. Lebanon was a middle income country for in terms of living standards according to the World Bank. Living here, you could argue you could compare the lifestyle to southern Italy or Greece. I'm not comparing the economic styles, the economic systems, but in terms of lifestyle. And very quickly, very rapidly, we went from that to something more akin to Venezuela with, as you said, shortages, devaluation of the national currency, hyperinflation, massive brain drain, shortages, et cetera. But I also want to put things in some perspective. The issue as everywhere is also one of have and have nots. If you're able to access somehow income from abroad and you have access to hard currency in dollars, you can buy whatever you want in Lebanon..

"Now the ministry of interior is put out a revised turnout number, which is closer to 49%. I think we shouldn't worry too much about turnout because the lists of eligible voters in Lebanon are very outdated. They still include people who passed away a long time. For complicated reasons that have to do with census. So I think we should look at the outcome and the result and the outcome is that these activists independent opposition candidates have managed to break through in a very significant way, as I said, not only have they pushed back against the corrupt system, the oligarchy that has ruined this country. But they've broken the monopoly of sectarian based political parties that have had this hold on Christians in their community on Druze and their community on Sunnis and their community. And they've put forward a new cross sectarian agenda that is much more nationally inclusive agenda. Is that a potentially more stable agenda for the future of Lebanon that do these do these election results in terms of the prospects of stability in the future? Unfortunately, in the short term, no, because while Hezbollah and its allies have lost the majority in parliament, and the new majority is against them. This new majority of 52 53% is very fragmented because it's still does include old traditional sectarian based parties. And it's not clear that the young, they're not all young. I shouldn't just say young activists. Some of them are mid career professionals who've now who are now in parliament, but let's say the nascent independent opposition. It's not clear whether they will be willing to do the work of politics, the real politic, the pragmatic compromises that are going to be necessary. We'll have to see how they are going to manage in their new roles as an opposition. Well, I guess they're the majority now, but as a new rising force in parliament. And in the short term, I think we should expect a lot of stalling by the losers by Hezbollah by the Christian party that is affiliated to the president Michel au. They feel like they're losing their grip on power, and they are going to do everything they can to stall. They're now demanding that they should still be included in a cabinet of national unity, which is usually not how democracy works. If you lose elections, you don't get to participate in the cabinet, but their argument is that Lebanon requires always consensual democracy where everybody is included. But they only make that argument in their own favor and never in favor of the other party. So in short in the short term, I think we'll see some instability possibly some more protests, some stalling of all the institutional processes. But I like to think of this as a generational process. And for me, this started in 2005 with the first wave of protests in Lebanon. And it started with the Arab uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia and other and Syria, where the young generation of this region is learning how to push back against an entrenched system, and they're learning, as I said, that revolution is not enough, and that they have to get involved in the politics, which has always been a dirty game that anybody with any integrity would not have wanted to get involved in. And now they're learning how to game the system to be included and try to change it from the inside. So I look at this as a generational project. Kim, I think it was the French foreign minister before the elections who said Lebanon is the Titanic, but without the orchestra..

I just was never particularly due to the major threat by Israel. You should know Hugh. The ISIS from our perspective was several thousand men mostly with light arms and machine guns on the backs of trucks. Our biggest threat of his bola was a 150,000 rockets pointed at our city. That's a major threat. But that doesn't mean we're anyway not relieved to see one of the major commanders of ISIS eliminated.

No they're not do until friday evening I think we can make a fair guess at them. Though to be honest. I mean is there any chance that russia could perhaps derail the selection. That's no indication that they want to at the moment There's always a question. Mark over how long russia will see asset is an asset rather than a liability. But i think generally the assumption is that keeping him in place keep things relatively stable that trying to bring somebody else in certainly. It isn't a to be played to soon. Possibly at some point they could bring in somebody similar as part of a deal for western reconstruction aid. But we're very very far from that point. In iran influence iran is also supporting asset again as a source of stability and as a gateway into the country. Pro-iranian militias are playing a very important role there and iran is looking for a reconstruction con contracts and most of all a routine into lebanon where it supports the hezbollah movement so again for a run asset is an important asset.

"Has attacked observation posts of the militant Hezbollah group along the Lebanon border. The Israeli military says that shots were fired at its soldiers in an area near the border late Tuesday night, and they're blaming this attack on Hezbollah. They say that in response to these shots being fired, they carried out an attack involving helicopter gunships and that they also fired flares and smoke shells into the air near the border. Israel says that none of its soldiers were wounded, and there are no reports of any casualties on the Lebanese side, either. He says. The danger may be over for now, but tensions do remain. There have been occasional flare ups along the border. And while I don't think either side is interested in a war at this point, there's always the possibility of an escalation or thing's spiraling out of control. This current exchange of fire ended early this morning, and it seems to be over. But there's always the possibility that tensions could reignite.

And while I don't think either side is interested in a war of this point There's always the possibility of an escalation or thing's spiraling out of control. This current exchange of fire ended early this morning, and it seems to be over. But there's always the possibility that tensions could reignite.

The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa

"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

A Member Of Hezbollah Found Guilty Of Killing Lebanon's Ex-Prime Minister

"Special international tribunal found a Hezbollah agent guilty of assassinating the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. This at a tense time for the U. S designated terror group as political and financial pressure gross. Special correspondent Jane Ferguson reports from Beirut Thea Suicide truck bomb that killed Lebanon's Rafik Hariri on Valentine's Day. 2005 was sent there by Salim I.

The other three accused were found not guilty. All were tried in absentia, with Hezbollah's leadership, refusing to hand over the men who haven't been seen publicly for years. 1/5 conspirator Mustapha Badreddine was killed in Syria four years ago where he was commanding his Butler forces. The former prime minister, son sad. Hariri, who also recently held the office, was in court for the verdict. Afterwards, he spoke to the press saying. The one who must sacrifice today is Hezbollah. It has become clear that the killers were from their ranks. They think that for this reason they will not be brought to justice and punished. I repeat, we will not rest until they are punished. The court, however, said it couldn't connect the killer to Hezbollah's leadership, citing insufficient evidence. Just days before the verdict, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah dismissed the tribunal in a speech, saying, We're not concerned with the special Tribunal of Lebanon's rulings. We cling to the innocence of our brothers should unjust verdicts be issued against them.

"Dramatic move but as part of a pattern by Turkey to reach out more broadly to many parts of Africa ambassador. David Chen is America's former top envoy I to Ethiopia and Burkina Faso he now teaches international relations at George Washington University First of all Libya. Why does Turkey care about Libya? I think it's more historical than anything else The fact that Libya was once part of the Ottoman Empire. I think Libya is sort of going through a neo. He'll autumn and phase that sees a particular attachment to this part of the world. There may also be some interests in hydrocarbons in the wider region and particularly in the case of Libya. There is an economic agreement between Turkey and Libya. This is with the government of National Accord and AAA president. President of Turkey would like to Be Sure to implement that economic agreement and should the government of National Accord fall than that Agreement will come to nothing. So what is in it for the Libyans of it sounds like hydrocarbons are in the back of Everyone's mind I think. The government of National Accord is reaching reaching out to whatever support. It can get and There aren't that many countries that are providing tangible support and particularly military support. So so I think it's really a question of national survival for the government and AAA so you mentioned ambassador the historic context for these Turkish troops going to Libya I mean he does like to invoked the memory of that. A once. Great Ottoman Empire. Do you think this is in some way an attempt to start rebuilding that empire at least create the optics of one well it would be a question of rebuilding the optics of it. I don't think there's any thought of of re establishing the Ottoman Empire with control over territory but there is a desire to establish Turkish influence throughout the former Ottoman area which covers of course all of North Africa gone extends into parts of sub Saharan Africa. As a result you've seen a major effort by Erdo on to Reestablish Turkish interests is throughout all of Africa including those parts that had nothing whatsoever to do with the Ottoman Empire It varies enormously country by country. Turkey he does have significant. Investments and countries like Ethiopia Sudan some of the North African countries. They're very engaged politically in Somalia. Korea and Somalia is one of the country's that's gaining enormously by Turkey's engagement there and what does that mean. What are they actually doing in this relationship with all in addition to providing political support? They they actually have a military facility. And Mogadishu with a couple of hundred Turkish military personnel all that train Somali National Army personnel This is a major investment. Essentially Turkey has Sort of opened the door her. For Somalia. It's offering numerous scholarships to Somali nationals. And about half of all Turkish aid to Africa has gone to Somalia. So the impact in Somalia's enormous so establishing relationships is one thing but actual boots on the ground I mean. How unusual is it for Turkey to send troops overseas Aziz like they're doing in Libya I think it's very unusual. I think Turkey's going to learn that this may be a more difficult situation than simply training Somali. National Army personnel in Mogadishu I really wonder how this is going to play out ambassador David. Chen thank you very much for your time. You're welcome staying in this part of the world Israeli Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu wants immunity from prosecution. He was recently indicted with bribery and fraud in the three separate cases and he's now ask the Israeli parliament. The Knesset to effectively skip trial while he's still in power Hokuetsu lagoon in a televised announcement last night. Netanyahu said that the immunity law is intended to protect elected officials from being framed. Netanyahu often and calls the allegations against him a politically motivated witchhunt Yohannan plus ner in Jerusalem is the president of the Israel Democracy Institute. He's also a former member of the Knesset. Plus new says Netanyahu does not seem to have enough votes in the Knesset to get immunity but just making. The request is expected to delay the start of the trial by several months. It's unlikely that this kness it has already dissolved itself will be able to discuss this request. So we're in a very unique situation. The first time that a prime minister is under indictment for time they chooses to request immunity. First Time that the Knesset goes for a third consecutive electric without being able looking form of government and this obviously has a lot to do with the prime minister trying to avoid his legal proceedings. So you're saying he's buying time and he's buying buying time to get that majority in the Knesset that he's not been able to get so far. Yeah there were two the first round of election in April second round of elections election in September. Both around the prime minister did not gain a majority and neither did the blue and white party led by Mr Guns and surprisingly the polls now indicate it were expected to reach an outcome of a third time. So if you expect another time a third election than definitely there will be a fourth point one there. No no no. If I had to bet based on my decade and a half long experience in politics government will be one way or enough enough this suspicions against Netanyahu which became official corruption charges in late November. They first came to light in the summer of two thousand sixteen. And at the time Netanyahu said confidently that quote nothing will be found because there is nothing End Quote. So how did we get from. There is nothing to Netanyahu asking for. Immunity is there now oh evidence against them that amounts to a smoking gun of corruption. Yes there is evidence that merits the submission of an indictment. Mister Netanyahu claim now is dighton does politically motivated and therefore it should be annulled. There's no evidence whatsoever to support this claim. But Mister Netanyahu's continuous pronouncements.

This week they set fire to a reception area and then laid aid siege to the massive diplomatic compound in the Iraqi capital but on Wednesday the demonstrators picked up and left us. Officials quickly. Laid the blame on an iranian-backed Group called cut ebb. Hezbollah here's the world's Sharon Jafari with more how we know that Khattab has was behind the embassy attack for starters it. It was the flags in videos of the scene outside the embassy. Some men wore military uniform. OPS many of them carry the distinctive black white and yellow flags of Qatar Hezbollah which show a raised fist holding an AK forty seven event. It's literally the Hezbollah battalions. It's often called the Hezbollah. Brigades Phillips Smith is with The Washington Institute a think tank in Washington. That's where I specialize is on Shia militias. The Shia militia mapping project. Where I map out? All the activities of all the Shia militias in the Middle East Smyth says Qatar has is closely closely connected to Iran. Iraq's next door neighbor to the east the group is one of the most loyal proxies in Iraq when it was formed formed in two thousand seven it was very small with only a couple of hundred members thin slowly it grew to a much larger powerful organization. Cutoff Hezbollah also operates in Syria slice. This and is strongly connected to the Lebanese Hezbollah is just one of numerous she militia groups in Iraq you have under one hundred groups that are kind of unofficial networks and also official groups official groups. It's closer to around in the sixties range range but when we look at this you have to maintain the understanding the Iranians our firm controllers of a good number of these organizations givens influence influence in Iraq goes way back Smith says in the nineteen eighties. The two countries fought a bloody war. But since the US invasion in two thousand three three enrollment has sought to increase its influence in its neighboring country and it has specifically focused on the Shia communities why it's all about regional power an ideology Jordanian hotel. I had a lot Khomeini. The leader of Iran's nineteen seventy nine Islamic revolution saw himself as the leader of all Muslims especially the Shia he also wanted to export Iran's revolution solution to other countries Comey's legacy continues to this day in Iraq. The Shiites are a majority of the country's population but they suffered greatly during the decades of Saddam Hussein's rule Saddam favored the minority Sunni population. So the Shiites in Iraq looked to Iran and it's religious government for support smile says since the US overthrow of Saddam Hussein. The Iranians have courted. That she has in Iraq as then Matchel on ice the Iraqi economy. It's in the toilet. There's no social services there's no other services there's terrible corruption. There's all sorts of things and the Iranians often come in offering a lot of money offering a lot of political influence at times. If you are somebody who's from a very very poor community. That certainly appeals appeals to you the American troops on the ground witnessed these alliances on a regular basis. Thirty eight year. Old Johnson served two tours in Iraq. Both both took planets out there with the eighty second division house. An Infantryman Johnson says his platoon knew it was dealing with an evonne backed militia group. Because they're the ones ones that stuck around to fight usually a higher coordination More sophisticated weaponry it was. It was a much bigger deal. Johnson says he wasn't familiar with Kuttab. Talk Hezbollah until this week. But when he heard about the embassy attack in Baghdad it reminded him of a comment. That Iraqi army sergeant had made back in in two thousand nine. Oh No if the. US leaves than the wolves are GonNA come out and get us and so they all last because what they thought was that. That's the way that we thought of them by RUF. He says the sergeant meant the Iranian backed militias and he was being sarcastic. Because by that point the Iraqis felt confident. They thought they could handle any any security situation on their own. But of course the Islamic state prove that wrong reflecting on this week's developments Johnson says he can't help hub but feel sad. It feels like we spent as a country and me and you know the people I started with so much time and effort over there that it just just. It's almost like a waste and makes me sad just.

That's not even the point. The point is what's taking place now. That is what I'm saying is when people say, well, that's then. And that's that okay. But that's not even my point.

But those vacuum those vacuum inside Lebanon of where the she is role would be that Iran was able to help create the movement that volved into Hezbollah has what did not declare it self publicly until I think it was nineteen eighty-five with sort of manifesto in nineteen eighty five, but the suicide bombings the methods the Iranian money, the Eire's Irish see training had started a few years earlier. Dan, Byman eliminates how the rise of Hezbollah and intensified terrorist activity in the region began to shape Washington's approach to Iran. But for the United States, the terrorism concerns starts to shape, the broader view of Iran. So there's occasional hopes that just running around contra that the United States might be able to engineer an opening with Iran, but they're constant backing violent forces. So the Lebanese Hezbollah for example, which does devastating terrorist attacks in Lebanon against US diplomats and US marines that sort of activity convinces, many Americans that it's not just that around an enemy, but that is an enemy that can't be recent with that it's violent it's fanatical. And as a result. The United States is going to have to oppose it indefinitely, and this continues after the Cold War where you have this imaging you have this legacy of hostility. And it's on both sides were both view the other with tremendous suspicion, and when the United States would try to reach out with now of branch. There was a strong sense that Iran wasn't interested. In. Now, an embassy in Tehran is in the hands of Muslim students tonight, spurred on by an anti-american speech by the Ayatollah Khomeini. They stormed the embassy fought the marine guards with three hours overpower them and to dozens of American hostages the students want the deposed Shah return to Ron for trial. For many Americans in nineteen seventy nine the Iranian revolution was little noticed much less. Understood until November fourth on that day. An organized group of Romanian students reached the gates of the US embassy in Tehran in occupied buildings in the embassy compound and seized over sixty embassy personnel. It was actually the second attempt by students to seize the US embassy and came shortly after the Shah's entry into the United States for cancer treatment, laid October and meeting between senior White House officials and representatives of the provisional government. I told him any called it evidence of America's plotting. How did the hostage-taking relate to the aim? So the revolution, and what were the impacts on US Ron relations, then and now here are Suzanne Maloney, and Elaine Kay, Mark. With their initial thoughts on the hostage crisis. I think the hostage crisis in the minds of many Americans is synonymous with the Iranian revolution itself. This sense that a government that had been such a long standing and close American ally had suddenly morphed into one that threaten the very safety of our diplomatic representatives on the ground produced, a kind of cognitive dissonance among much of the American public, and certainly within the government which had in fact been trying to maintain at least a low level relationship with the new government in Iran seizure of the embassy by students who were not affiliated with the government, but who appear to have had some prior coordination or even encouragement from elements of atole, a Khomeini's inner circle provided a catalyst for Iran to move in a much more radical direction, but it also clarified for the US government that this new regime in Iran was not going. To be a country with which the United States could deal in the way that it would with other types of countries. Well, there were people in the US government who warned president Carter that it was going to be a mistake to bring the shot to the United States for medical treatment. But he did. So anyway, and that was kind of a precipitating event in the minds of the Iranian students. But the public as I said really had very little interest or knowledge of this until the hostages were taken. Now, once the hostages were taken this became an enormous enormous enormous issue and president Carter tried to negotiate. But they were negotiating with a government that was kind of a very weak replacement of the Shah and Komeini was the person that the students were listening to so the car. Administration negotiations went nowhere. And that's why in the spring he decided to mount a military rescue of the hostages..

You said his comments were just too close to the line, whatever he meant. He said what he said might be true in terms of his defense just to close. But but now we have every statement the man has ever made he's being called a racist a collection of racist comments racist this race. So here we go. Now, we forget about Steve king and now. Things that people say that are not racist a racist. So I want to return to Rashida to leap a new democrat. From Michigan a Palestinian Muslim. And I want to know if they're gonna take action against her. As the Washington Times reports pro Hezbollah activists posts photos with brass Shida tallied at swearing in ceremony. Now. This woman has already said many outrageous things. Representative Takeshita to leave Michigan democrat. Whilst called out Monday after Palestinian activists. Abbas Hamadeh, a staunch defender, the terrorist group Hezbollah, which of course, is the militia wing the terrorist wing of Iran. Posted photos of the two of them posing at her swearing in ceremony in Detroit. Now, she knew who he was. Besta Hamadeh tweeted a photo of himself Saturday with miss tally congresswoman, along with the caption was honored to be a congresswoman Rashida to leap swearing in ceremony in Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country. Now, why isn't this peaking? The concern to members of congress. If we're going to address these things, then dammit, let's address them all. Critics request to point out that Mr. Kameda, a co founder of the pro Palestinian group, Al Alda, which means right of return, which means elimination of the Jews in their homeland as a history of praising Hezbollah leaders such as saod Hassan Nasrallah and declaring that Israel has no right to exist. In December twenty fifteen Mr. Hamad day called convicted terrorists. Amir Kantar a legendary Hezbollah martyr days after he was killed in an explosion in Damascus Kantar was convicted of murder and terrorism for his role in a nineteen Seventy-nine attempted kidnapping that resulted in the deaths of Ford's rallies, but was released in two thousand eight Israeli Hezbollah prisoner exchange. This is the congresswoman and her buddy. This is her buddy. Max arrive executive director for research and campus strategy for the pro Israel groups stand with us said that Mr. Hamadeh has a long record of incendiary rhetoric. Just one example, he called Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah the most honorable man on earth. Referring to a February twenty six social media post how San NAS raw has made genocidal threats against Jews. He's actively aided the dictator Bashar Al Assad in the mass murder of the Syrian people. You believe this? So there's a litany of disturbing comments along these lines, Mr Savary samurai, I've said, no members of Congress, Republican or democrat should be associating with people who are racist or who support violence against innocent people.

And I'm not trying to be a hard hearted in any respect. Nobody on the air supports the military as much as I do. But I do know this if we have to go back into that area after we withdraw then you're going to see big casualties. And I think the president to some extent. Has had second thoughts certainly about an immediate pullout. So he's slowing it down. So are superb national security advisor in. This guy's great John Bolton left hates them communists. Hate him. The fascist hate him the Islamic Nazis hate him. Our media hate them hate them. What a cabal? Interesting. They're on the same side in this respect. So he gave a short statement, which reflects the president's position. Although our media is trying to build a wedge between Bolton and Trump goes. That's what they do. And he said in so many words, I'll tell you exactly what he said in Jerusalem. We don't think the Turks or to undertake military action that's not fully coordinated with an agreed to by the United States at a minimum. So they don't endanger our troops. But also, so they meet the president's requirement that the Syrian opposition forces that fought with us or not endangered. He's talking about a number of them. But especially the Kurds, well, Aragon gray mistake. It's not possible for us to swallow. The message Baltin gave from Israel. So he's a Jew hater. He's occurred. Hater he's a freedom. Hater this guy. Is a piece of crap. And I'd use another word, but I can't. This guy is a two-faced liar. And the president should not believe a thing. He has to say, and so he wouldn't meet with Bolton. He wouldn't meet with bone. You see it's to below him. You wouldn't meet with Bolton because Bolton knows a genocidal fascist subhuman when he sees one, and that's gone. Who was destroyed that magnificent country. Who is now working closely with Putin?

"Coming for airports. I'm saying that they come by air by land and by sea, and the more and more that our border the comes vulnerable and a less and less that we spend time and money protecting the more that we're going to have an influx noxious a terrorist. But of human traffickers, strong inflow and people that are coming here to do American citizens harm. This is I I'm going to be honest with you, and then we will run into a quick break. I'll come back with Thomas Holmes response on this one. I I don't like the focus on terrorist crossing the border in this argument. I think it's I think it's week. That's not to say the terrorists couldn't cross at our southern border. What it is to say is that if you are Al Qaeda or Hezbollah operative, there are more effective ways to get into the United States and trying to cross at the southern. The border for example, flying into Canada and crossing at the northern border would make a whole lot more sense in those situations. Right. So if you're coming from abroad, the reason we got so many Mexicans and central Americans crossing because they're they're they live next door. If you're someone who's traveling here from Syria from the Middle East from wherever if you can fly to Mexico you can fly to Canada. I don't think it's a particularly efficient way of getting here that said and also if you try to cross the southern border. There's a good chance you're gonna get caught the problem we have at the border is that a lot of people that are currently showing up at the border. Even the ones that are caught trying to cross illegally are abusing this loophole of asylum. Right. So, you know, the truth is that if you're gonna come to the border, and you're gonna come into legally the best way to do it or rather if you're gonna abuse the system is not to just try to sneak in like some super spy, you know, some super spy from al-qaeda, it would be to come in as a family unit and pace. Somebody even to just say, this is my wife or my children were fleeing violence in Honduras, and, you know, pretend you speak a little less bound you'll and see if you can get through that first screening because you're going to get releasing the interior of the United States, and you know, you'll be releasing the interior United States, but it's not a particularly efficient way to infiltrate terrorists into the country. They're easier better ways to do it. And if you're talking about an operative who's been trained, you probably don't want that person getting caught at the border that shed. Let's come back in a moment to what Tom home and says who's four who is the former immigration and customs enforcement director about terrorists at the border, and whether or not Sarah Huckabee Sanders was wrong there.
