The head of a pro-Israel ministry is pleased that the Trump administration is pushing the Lebanese government to confront the growing menace of terrorists within its borders.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Lebanon last week, talking to the Lebanese government about how the U.S. can help them disconnect from the threat that Iran and Hezbollah pose to them. Hezbollah is backed by the Iranian regime and has built an army that dwarfs the Lebanese armed forces, and Hezbollah and its allies control a majority of seats in Parliament and the Cabinet.
"Hezbollah has way too much control in Lebanon," says Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations. "And we know that Hezbollah has 150,000 missiles aimed at Israel, right on Israel's northern border. Unfortunately the world hasn't been paying much notice to that, of course not at the United Nations."
So Cardoza-Moore says there must be pressure applied to countries like Lebanon to help confront the terrorists.
"If these countries want to remain an ally of the United States, they're going to have to get in line with protecting Israel's right as a state to exist," she submits. "It's time to dismantle Hezbollah's missiles on that northern territory."
