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.
