WASHINGTON (CNN) — The State Department plans to designate Hezbollah’s television station, Al-Manar, as a terrorist organization for broadcasting incitement, a senior State Department official said Wednesday.
The designation could come later this week, the official said.
Hezbollah is a Lebanon-based group linked to the 1983 bombing of a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut that killed 241 servicemen. It is already designated a terrorist organization by the United States.
Al-Manar, which was licensed by the Lebanese government in 1997, has come under renewed scrutiny amid claims that the organization is inciting terrorism and has made outrageous claims against Israel and other nations.
In one recent broadcast, according to The New York Times, Al-Manar claimed Israel spread the AIDS virus and other diseases throughout the Arab world.
The station, which can be seen in the United States via satellite, has also shown images of a skeletal Statue of Liberty dripping blood and pictures of Adolf Hitler and his forces juxtaposed with President Bush and American troops.
The station’s Web site says: “Al-Manar is the first Arab establishment to stage an effective psychological warfare against the Zionist enemy.”
