Hizbullah appears to be the main target of the United States in the Middle
East, now that the regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has been
toppled. It faces accusations of carrying out terrorist activities but
insists it is a legitimate resistance group.
Ghaleb Abu Zeinab, a member of the party's politburo, stressed that the
resistance has two clear and simple aims, liberating the occupied lands and
deterring Israel.
Speaking to The Daily Star, he was very firm in denying accusations that the
party undertook terrorist activities during the 80s, including any
involvement in Western hostage-taking and the bombing of the US Marine
barracks.
