Hezbollah in Lebanon & Beyond

Dr. Matthew Levitt, director of The Washington Institute’s Stein Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence and author of the forthcoming book Hezbollah: The Global Footprint of Lebanon’s Party of God, joins me to discuss Hezbollah’s role in the Syrian uprising and their activities around the world. We discussed many issues related to Hezbollah including:

  • The history of Hezbollah’s role in the Syrian uprising from the start to present day
  • What the fall of the Assad regime could mean for Hezbollah
  • Issues surrounding the EU’s reluctance to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist group
  • Hezbollah’s activities in Europe and the US
  • Hezbollah’s multifaceted identity
