New anti-drug campaign equates smoking pot with terrorism
Israel's Anti-Drug Authority says Hezbollah is clearly planning to flood country with narcotics.
Israel's Anti-Drug Authority has launched a new campaign featuring Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, aimed at deterring Israelis from smoking marijuana.
As part of the campaign, the authority has published a poster showing the Hezbollah leader emerging genie-like from a bong (a waterpipe commonly used for smoking marijuana and hashish).
Underneath the image, the poster reads: "Hezbollah is clearly planning to flood Israel with narcotics. Narcotics pose a strategic threat to Israeli society. Whoever uses narcotics is giving a hand to the next terrorist attack."
The Israeli media last week quoted senior Israeli security sources as saying that Hezbollah is planning to flood Israel with drugs in an effort to harm its citizens.
Police and IDF troops on the same day stopped the largest shipment of pure heroin ever to be intercepted on Israel's border with Lebanon, a total of 32.5 kilograms, with an estimated street value of NIS 30 million.
Earlier that week, it was reported that the security services had arrested a career Israel Defense Forces soldier in February on suspicion that he handed over secrets to the Lebanon-based guerilla group.
