Hezbollah is a Shia militia in southern Lebanon that aims to destroy Israel in order to help spread Pan-Islam throughout the Middle East, get the Palestinians that are taking their land out of Lebanon, and repay the Israelis for their abusive occupation.

Although Hezbollah is in Lebanon, it is largely an extension of Iran, who began funding them after their Islamic revolution in 1979.
Originally Somalia was on the road to a democratic government; the Somali people ratified a new constitution on July 20, 1961 and elected Aden Abdullah Osman Daar as president and Abdirashid Ali Shermarke as prime minister (“Italian Somaliland” 3). However, the British government failed to prepare the Somalis for independence. As a result, Somalia, though its goals were to unite and form a stable democratic government, has only cycled through corruption, from the autocracy of Siad Barre to Farrah Aydid’s corrupt rule in 1991, a government so destructive it was followed by anarchy (“Somalia Post-Independence” 1-3). Had European imperial powers not interfered in Somalia’s development, it might not have begun moving in the direction of a modern democracy but it would have remained functional and peaceful as an Arab sultanate. But since imperial powers did interfere, Somalia was not prepared to stand on its own when given independence, and as a result is in a volatile position and is widely regarded as a “failed state” according to the Economist (“Poll” 1). The turbulence in Somalia’s government that followed the period of imperial rule would not have occurred had Britain and Italy never interfered in the first place, thus showing that imperialism leads to governmental instability.

Terrorism within or against the United States is not a new phenomenon. Our history is well documented with thousands of attempts and actual acts of terrorism that happened on U.S. soil. The first act of terrorism can be traced back to 1865 with the assassination of President Lincoln, but the first and boldest foreign terrorist attack occurred in New York City on February 26, 1993. Over 1,000 people were injured and six were killed when a group of Islamic terrorists detonated a rental truck equipped with explosives underneath the World Trade Center. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) later discovered that the explosion at the World Trade Center was a dress rehearsal for the most devastating and deadly terrorist attack to reach our nation,

The Islamic State believes that it is a caliphate, and that all other states are illegitimate. ISIS clearly wants power over the Islamic World. Not only does ISIS clearly bring terror to the western world as seen with recent events, their targets also include Shiite Muslims (Humphreys). Conflicts between the two sects also stem back to the Taliban and al-Qaeda, which are also a part of a Sunni sect called Wahhabi. The Wahhabis destroyed Shiite shrines and publically denounced the Shiites for worshipping idols. In 2004, a Kuwaiti sheikh, Hamed al-Ali, condemned Shia as “the world’s biggest display of heathens and idolatry,” while the former leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al Zarqawi, once said that “the Shiites are a more pernicious enemy than the Americans, and the best strategy for Sunnis is to ‘strike their religious, military, and other cadres’”

Loosely translated into another means of Khomeini protecting and extending his rule of Iran and the entirety of its entities. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, however, is very different and is separate from Iran’s “regular” military. There is said to even be a rivalry between the IRGC and the regular military in Iran due to the differing views of both branches and the fact that the regular military sees them as “secret police” whose sole intention is to repress the other armed forces. Adding fuel to the rivalry was the fact that in 1982, Khomeini sent IRGC troops into Lebanon to support Hezbollah, and supporting Islamic movements in neighboring countries ever since.
