On the home front

Foundation for the Defense of Democracies communications manager Sara Levy writes:

Since the FDD founded the Coalition Against Terrorist Media (CATM) in 2004, our number one goal in the U.S. has been to have the Treasury Department name Hezbollah’s al-Manar television as a terrorist organization.

Yesterday, the Treasury Department did just that. It named al-Manar as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) entity. This gives the U.S. government the power to go after al-Manar’s sources of funding and organizations that do business with it. It also sent a clear message to the Iranian regime: we won’t tolerate your terrorist surrogates waging war against free societies.

This designation gives the U.S. a powerful new weapon in the fight against al Manar and the war on terrorism.

I thought this topic would be of interest to you and your readers. For more information please see our blog posting and FDD’s press release.
