I write to you in reference to your poignant editorial Hezbollah’s vile influence spans the globe (August 21).

This piece on Hezbollah’s devious activities in South America was a true eye-opener.The terrorist group is fundraising its operations through illicit activities at the tri-border area where Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay meet.

This has helped its members spread their heinous ideology to the Americas.

Although they have gained influence there, this does not make Hezbollah’s extremist goals any more acceptable.

What’s more, the group claims to be fighting in the name of Islam and Muslims all around the world, but indulges in drug trafficking, money laundering , cigarette-smuggling and commits terrible attacks on innocents worldwide.When will this Lebanese group renounce violence?
