JPost: A US State Department official announced that millions of dollars will be awarded to anyone who will lead to the arrest of 2 senior-level Hezbollah officials. According to the official, the terrorist organization is determined to create the possibility of an attack in the US.
Up to 7 million dollars are being offered for Talal Hamiyah, in charge of terrorist operations abroad and up to 5 million dollars for Fu’ad Shukr, a top military operative. The move marks US President Donald Trump’s new policy to pressure Iran, which funds much of Hezbollah’s operations.
Opinion: How ironic that the US would pay ransom for Hezbollah terrorists since President Trump’s National Security Adviser, General H.R. McMaster, appears to be conflicted about whether Hezbollah is a terror group or not.
According to a report from Arutz Sheva and PJ Media, an Israeli delegation met with members of the National Security Council (NSC) at the White House on August 27, 2017 to discuss the current threat to Israel by Hezbollah.
What then transpired at the meeting was confirmed to PJ Media, several administration sources, members of NGOs involved in national security, and by a source within the Israeli government.
How amazing it is then that 3000 years ago, a Levite Temple priest by the name of Asaph, who is said to be King David’s music director, prophesied that some entity would inhabit Tyre (Lebanon) and be part of an alliance to destroy the Jewish state in the last days.
Asaph (seer in Hebrew) went on to name each member of the alliance (Psalm 83:5-8) and their battle cry:
“Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
