Israel Bans Group Set Up by Hizbullah and Iran to Attack Israelis

(Jerusalem Post) Yaakov Lappin - At the advice of the Israel Security Agency, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday outlawed Al-Harak Al-Shababi, an organization that acts under Hizbullah and Iranian instruction to carry out terrorist attacks against Israelis and topple the Palestinian Authority. The ISA noted that in the past two years, two opponents of the PA, Shafik Asli in Lebanon and Halmi Balbisi in Jordan, transferred hundreds of thousands of shekels to promote the organization and fund terrorist activities. Over the past year, the ISA said, the group's members hurled firebombs and explosives at Israelis along the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway (Route 443), in Hebron and in Jerusalem. They also attempted to harm electrical infrastructure and the light railway system in Jerusalem, and instigated violent disturbances on the Temple Mount.
