News the HP Doesn't Cover: Hezbollah Agents Use Foreign Passports

Remember when a rumor came out about Mossad agents using passports over countries other than Israel, as if that was some sort of grievous crime? Here's a report that Hezbollah agents are doing the same thing. Do you think the HP readership would condemn Hezbollah the way they flipped out about Israel?

Hezbollah operatives obtained Western passports and used them to travel to various locations to attack Israeli civilians and Jewish population centers, according to a senior Western intelligence official quoted by a Kuwaiti newspaper Thursday
In an interview with Al-Rai, the unnamed official stated that Hezbollah members had acquired several European, Australian and Canadian passports.In most cases, the passports had belonged to Lebanese dual citizens residing in Europe, the official said.“The organization is without doubt considered by everyone as a first-order terrorist organization,” he was quoted as saying. “They recruited Lebanese Europeans in order to allow simple and free international movement.”The official, who spoke under condition of anonymity, further said that the passports had already been used by the Lebanese terror organization in locations such as Turkey, Jordan, Egypt, Cyprus, Greece and Azerbaijan.The attacks, the official continued, sought to avenge the assassination of Hezbollah military wing chief Imad Mughniyeh in 2008, an operation which was widely believed to have been carried out by Israeli agents.
