Jewish and Christian groups commend Senate passage of Hezbollah financing act

Jewish and Christian groups are praising the U.S. Senate’s passage of the Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act of 2017, which imposes added sanctions on the Lebanese terror group and its affiliates, and targets foreign governments, individuals and companies that support them.

“Iran’s emerging stranglehold over a vast swath of the Middle East is a dire threat to the United States and Israel,” said David Brog, a board member of Christians United for Israel. “And a newly enriched, experienced and emboldened Hezbollah is the tip of Iran’s spear. This legislation is an important first step in recognizing and countering this threat that will have a real impact on the ground.”
