A multi-million dollar theme park funded by Hezbollah will feature “family-friendly” rides and activities that encourage and celebrate terrorism against Israel, according to adocumentary aired on VICE. The media website’s film crew went to Mleeta, Lebanon to visit Hezbollah’s theme park, documenting the Shia terror group’s interactive propaganda effort in the form of the park’s barbed wire, tanks, rockets, archive video footage and exhibitions of weaponry used in their fight for “martyrdom” against Israel.
The park’s ‘attractions’ also include models of recreated war scenes, displaying destroyed Israeli tanks and other scenes of wreckage and fatality, including grave stones. A feature video shown in the park educates visitors about Hezbollah’s history and its mission to destroy the Jewish state.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Israel believes Hezbollah has an arsenal of over 40,000 rockets, including some that could potentially reach Tel Aviv. Hezbollah, funded by Iran and Syria, has also been accused of establishing rocket villages in Southern Lebanon designated to fire into Israel.
Part two of the VICE’s documentary will be aired online next Tuesday.
