    Smile Finally: Hezbollah Theme Park

    Hezbollah Opens Jihad Theme Park




    The Lebanese Shia militant group Hezbollah, after decades of anti-Israel and anti-U.S. violence, has decided to try something new and open an amusement park. The million-dollar attraction, enticingly named "Museum for Resistance Tourism," includes documentary videos, an aerial tramway, and a terrace called "The Abyss" that showcases remnants of Israeli tanks. Located on the Lebanese mountain town of Mleeta, the museum is meant to cement Hezbollah, which was founded only in the 1980s, into the ancient and storied Lebanese culture. ABC News' Lara Setrakian visits the center that is sometimes called "HezbollahLand":
    Rami has a ready answer when asked if the museum advances terrorist propaganda.
    "I believe it's our right to have our own propaganda. The important thing is that this is the sincere and true propaganda."

    Despite its militant edge, the museum is part of an effort to soften Hezbollah's image. It's designed to be the centerpiece of a massive tourist development - dubbed "HezbollahLand" in the global press – capped with an aerial tramway offering scenic rides from Mleeta to an abandoned Israeli base on a nearby hill.
    ... That, analysts say, is where the museum fits into Hezbollah's overarching strategy: fighting Israel in times of war, and in times of peace, investing in ways that seal a bond with its followers. Hezbollah runs hospitals and builds homes, partly under the umbrella of its "Construction Jihad" – hardening its constituents by giving them a social safety net and improving their quality of life.
    Wired's Spencer Ackerman adds some context on Hezbollah's fighting on the culture front:

    Hezbollah is hardly the only anti-Israel organization attempting to fight the Jewish state with pop culture and entertainment. As Danger Room co-founder Sharon Weinberger has reported, Hamas has its own movie studio.
    But “HezbollahLand” takes terror tourism to a whole new level. “We’re going to build motels, playgrounds, camping areas, even spas or swimming pools so that all of the visitors — especially our people — can come here and spend their weekends or vacations,” the guide says.
    In case you decide against traveling to HezbollahLand, here's a short video that should really be more than sufficient:

    That's my first thought. Fun for the whole family though.

    Is the minimum height for rides decided before or after beheading?

    Pretty sure it's the palestinians fighting back against nonstop israeli encroachment __________________
    This from a PLO leader

    Dutch newspaper Trouw, in an interview with PLO executive committee member, Zahir Muhsein said:

    “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, ‘Palestinians’, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.”
