Your claim that Hezbollah addresses social deprivation has merit to it. Nevertheless, it is only half of the story. The other half is that Hezbollah engages in terror, is a proxy of Iran, and it espouses a radical Islamist agenda. In this regard, it is similar to the Muslim Brotherhood: "From the outset, the Brotherhood has been dominated by two seemingly contradictory aspects: It has a charitable side that has acted as a reform oriented social movement and the other is its undeniable authoritarian and dogmatic politics." The founder of the Brotherhood, Hassan al Banna stated: "Victory can only come from mastering the art of death."[Der Spiegel International, July 3, 2007]. Those in Western democracies who are seduced by Hezbollah's charitable side should ask themselves whether they are willing to embrace a totalitarian, theocratic group that engages in terrorism just becuse it has a charitable side. A charity that espouses murder is not very charitable.
