Think Tank Urges US to Designate Lebanese NGO as a Terror Entity
A report published Thursday by The Washington Institute urges the US Treasury Department to add the Lebanese environmental NGO Green Without Borders (GWB) its list of Specially Designated Global Terror entities, citing their “clear and undeniable material support to Hezbollah”.
The authors urged the United States to place sanctions against GWB, which is not currently classified as being a terror entity. The report also cites Hezbollah’s construction arm, Jihad al-Binaa, which has been designated by the US Treasury Department since 2007, as “…among GWB’s closest collaborators.
“By building surveillance posts, denying the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) unrestricted access in southern Lebanon, and granting Hezbollah logistical and operational platforms from which to fire rockets into Israel, GWB has effectively become part of Hezbollah’s military infrastructure,” it said.
The IDF has accused Hezbollah of establishing GWB observation posts near the Blue Line bordering Lebanon and Israel since April 2016 in order to gather intelligence. (VFI News)
“God, we ask that you guide our leaders to the decisions that are best for your children.” Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. –Romans 12:19-21
