Last week was not a good week for Hezbollah. Despite its numerous attempts to avoid an international bailout for Lebanon, the Lebanese government has finally announced that it will seek a loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) after signing off on a rescue plan to begin fixing its deteriorating economy. In addition, Germany announced Thursday it has designated the Lebanese militant and political group Hezbollah a terror organization, banning all of its activities in the country and ordering raids on sites that are linked to the group.
