Can’t get enough of Hezbollah? Well, if you have an iPhone, the Shi’ite Lebanese terrorist organization has the solution for you – an app courtesy of the group’s official media organ Al Manar.
The app, Trust News, is apparently an effort by the organization to maintain a presence on iPhone despite a previous failed attempt.
“Last month, al-Manar, Hezbollah’s media arm, which is listed as a ‘specially designated global terrorist entity’ by the US government, launched Trust News, a new iPhone app,” the Anti-Defamation League said. “Available through the Apple online store iTunes, the app streams al-Manar’s live television broadcasts and news and provides access to al-Manar’s social media platforms.It also provides the latest speeches of Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah.”
The ADL said the new app is designed to circumvent a previous ban on Hezbollah by Apple by not including any official insignia or reference to the group.
“Al-Manar’s web¬site posted a link which directs its visitors to the iTunes store to download the mobile app,” the ADL said. “ADL has alerted Apple about this new app.”
