The fact that hezbollah is actually a breakaway group from an earlier one that's aim was to remove the Palestinians from Lebanon shows that they were not always so anti Israel although thats what they have come to be now. The group has transformed so much in its history and is now a large social provider for the Lebanese people. The US may as well try to promote moderate parts of the group, the political side over the terrorist side perhaps have what happened to Sien Fien and the IRA in Ireland. What harm can it do, but the benefits could be large.
