(Wall Street Journal) Michael Oren - In 25 cities across five continents, community centers, consulates, army barracks and houses of worship have been targeted for destruction. Thousands have been killed. The perpetrators are agents of Hizbullah and the Quds Force, sometimes operating separately and occasionally in unison. All take their orders from Tehran. Hizbullah provides the foot soldiers necessary for realizing Iran's vision of a global Islamic empire. With funding, training and weapons from Iran, Hizbullah terrorists have killed European peacekeepers, foreign diplomats and thousands of Lebanese, among them Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. They have hijacked American, French and Kuwaiti airliners and kidnapped and executed officials from several countries. They are collaborating in Bashar Assad's slaughter of opposition forces in Syria today. Second only to al Qaeda, Hizbullah has murdered more Americans - at least 266 - than any other terrorist group. Above all, Hizbullah strives to kill Jews. It has fired thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians and tried to assassinate Israeli diplomats in at least six countries. Its early 1990s bombing of a Jewish community center and the Israeli Embassy in Argentina killed 115. Iran and its proxies have already dotted the world with murderous acts.
