The Washington Post published a piece on Sunday painting a detailed picture of Hezbollah, a designated terrorist group, and its efforts to discredit President Donald Trump.
Liz Sly, the Post's Bureau Chief in Beirut, says she was “on tour with Hezbollah in Lebanon, where they're out to show that they, not Trump, are the ones fighting terrorism.”

Sly, together with Post reporter Suzan Haidamous, published an article describing the situation surrounding the Lebanon-based “movement” as “complicated.” The article questions Trump for condemning Hezbollah as an opposition group to Lebanon, and alleges according to Hezbollah officials that “Hezbollah, not the United States, is the one doing most of the fighting against terrorism.”
“The current American president is ignorant of the region,” Hezbollah spokesman Mohammed Afif told the group of western reporters in a cave during the tour. “We are the force that fights terrorism while the United States continues to support terrorism in many forms.”
The article also describes Hezbollah “resisting what was then the Israeli occupation of a big chunk of southern Lebanon.”
At the end of the tour with the journalists, Afif “reminded” them the purpose of their visit to Lebanon: to know that the United States supports terrorism and Hezbollah fights it.
“We are the ones defeating terrorism,” he told them. “The Americans and their allies are the ones who are supporting terrorism, and they are the last ones who should be criticizing Hezbollah.”
