Those nice guys at “Hezbollah” are building their own version of the “Magic Kingdom.” except in their case its more like the Jihad Kingdom. The terrorist organization with de facto control of the Lebanese government is building a museum/theme park in an area where it once launched attacks against Israel.

The “Museum for Resistance Tourism” is built on the mountain stronghold of Mleeta and celebrates war and the goal of destructing Israel in an interactive display for family entertainment.

Guests who visit are treated to two promotional films, one about the making of the museum, another on the history of Hezbollah, featuring battle footage and a version of history that Israel as the ultimate evil. According to officials over 300,000  people have visited the “resort” since its opening in May, many from Egypt and the Persian Gulf.

Our tour guide, a high school biology teacher named Rami, walked us through the exhibits. In one building he pointed to small arms left behind by Israeli forces, now stacked in stylized pyramids. Outside, a sunken terrace titled “The Abyss” holds the debris of Israeli tanks and equipment, arranged around what is meant to be a tombstone, emblazoned with the Hebrew acronym for the IDF.

“Mleeta is where Hezbollah had its base, a kind of base where most of the missions done against the Israeli bases were planned,” said Rami. He said the motive behind the million-dollar museum was to “give information…a closer look at the way Hezbollah used to fight the Israeli enemy.”

Rami has a ready answer when asked if the museum advances terrorist propaganda.

“I believe it’s our right to have our own propaganda. The important thing is that this is the sincere and true propaganda.”

Despite its militant edge, the museum is part of an effort to soften Hezbollah’s image. It’s designed to be the centerpiece of a massive tourist development – dubbed “HezbollahLand” in the global press  capped with an aerial tramway offering scenic rides from Mleeta to an abandoned Israeli base on a nearby hill.

“We’re going to build motels, playgrounds, camping areas, even spas or swimming pools so that all of the visitors — especially our people — can come here and spend their weekends or vacations, no need to worry about heavy financial duties,” said Rami.

The Hezbollah terrorists must really hate their children, as the continue to find new ways to indoctrinate their kids to love terror and hate peace. This effort to indoctrinate their kids is funded by Iran, and aided by the European Union who led by  France, Spain, and Britain refuse to label the group as a terrorist organization, thus giving support to their terrorist activities.  Shame on them.
