house Bill H.R. 3329

Sanctioning Foreign People and Entities Who Fundraise and Recruit for Hezbollah

Argument in favor

Hezbollah is a terrorist organization and foreign people and entities who fundraise and recruit for the group should be sanctioned.

10/25/2017
Despite the ongoing U.S. sanctions on this organization, Hezbollah’s financial activities remain intact, and its revenues have reached almost a billion dollars annually. This legislation also targets Hezbollah's fund-raising, recruitment and propaganda activities, as well as states that are providing weapons, financial, and material support. Now is the time to choke off Hezbollah's assets and double down on the money that is coming in from Iran, Syria, and Russia.

Hizbullah is one of Iran's terror arms in the region, their reach extends to Europe, Africa, and the US. We must suffocate this cancerous organization before it's too late.

Argument opposed

The U.S. shouldn’t implement new sanctions against those who fundraise and recruit for Hezbollah.

I was going to support this, until I read this part: “The president would periodically update the list of sanctioned entities and individuals and provide reports to Congress on the status of sanctions.” First, who would identify the entities and individuals to be sanctioned? Second, I simply do not believe this President will follow any law, Constitutional Amendment, US Code, etc.if he chooses not to. And the GOP will back him 100%.

With a profoundly impaired POTUS who shares Islamophobia with the Administration deciding who and what are terrorist—no! No way! It is tragic to feel so much mistrust of the White House, much of the Republican Party, and many theoretically elected Congress.

The bill relies upon the Executive which is not a good way of pursuing this objective. Simply make it illegal to contribute to this ‘non-state’ entity both financially and materially.

    I'm all for shutting down Hezbollah, but should the President have full control of who is on the list?

    I’m uncomfortable with the President being the keeper of a list like this. Our “no fly” list is more closely vetted, and it can have issues.

    Terrorism is fake. You know what scares me? Political corruption. And if you believe that isis and the talaban really threaten us than I'm sure you already understand how corruption weakens the political process and leaves marginalized people with little recourse other than violence and extremism to face there oppressors.

    To do anything less than sanction would encourage Hezbollah’s worst behaviors.

    There is no good reason to vote against this. Plus, the United Nations needs to join us in condemning and isolating this terrorist group along with Iran in order to force their hand. The number one State sponsor of radical Islamic terrorism needs to be put in its place and luckily we have a President who is willing to do that.

    Ultimately, we should be doing everything we can to prevent the loss of life and promote peace in the Middle East. I fear that while the stated intentions of this bill seem clear, the actual outcome will be to fan the flames and reduce our credibility as an objective broker of peace in the region.

    The president should not be given unilateral control over which countries should get sanctioned or not. It's called "Checks and Balances"!

    In general I suppose this bill; however, I do not believe any one person, including a POTUS, should have the power to add people to any list.

    Poorly structured. Shouldn't rely on the executive. Should rely on intelligence agencies and congressional security panels.

    Actually this sounds somewhat reasonable but I do not trust congress to do the right thing and even less the President. Let’s just stop everything like the GOP did under Obama.
