Is the Obama Administration afraid to label blood-thirsty murderers "terrorists"? It sure seems that way, or is this a slap against Israel?
Since when is Hezbollah a "resistance" group? The "Party of God" lives and breathes with one purpose in mind--the destruction of Israel, and it will stop at nothing to achieve its goal. How appropriate that they have given themselves this name since their God calls for the killing of infidels.
Has the Obama Administration forgotten who was behind the murder of 241 Marines in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1983?

Obama Regime Officials Now Referring to Hezbollah as “Armed Resistance”…
"Helen Thomas seen nodding in approval…
'Pieces of U.S. State Department diplomatic correspondence have been referring to the Hezbollah terrorist organization as a “resistance” group, according to cables released by WikiLeaks and reviewed by WND.
Outside of al-Qaida, the Iranian-backed Hezbollah has the distinction of having killed the most Americans in terror attacks. It is also responsible for scores of terrorist actions targeting Israelis, including rocket launchings against civilian population centers. Hezbollah’s attacks against the Israeli north in 2006 killed 43 Israeli civilians and wounded more than 4,000.
And the State Department officially designates Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
Still, a State Department cable from the U.S. embassy in Damascus referred to Hezbollah’s “armed resistance” against the Jewish state.
Read the cable: “U.S.-Syrian discussions on Hezbollah have tended to ‘agree to disagree’ after hitting the wall of conflicting views on the legitimacy of armed resistance and Israeli occupation.”
The cable and others from around the same time period went on to detail a series of complaints the State Department filed with the Syrian government over its continued arming of Hezbollah to the point the Iranian-backed group is thought to have more than 40,000 rockets and missiles pointed at Israel.
…The State Department correspondence is not the first time government officials referred to Hezbollah as a “resistance” organization.
WND has reported multiple times how Condoleezza Rice, when she was secretary of state, publicly called both Hamas and Hezbollah “resistance” movements.
WND also reported in a May 2008 interview with the New York Times, Obama stated both Hamas and Hezbollah have “legitimate claims” that are being “weakened” by the violence the terror groups carry out.
Further, WND reported when Obama’s counter-terrorism adviser, John Brennan, wrote the U.S. should encourage greater assimilation of Hezbollah into the Lebanese government.'
Shameful! Just as it was when Condi Rice pulled that stunt.
