supports U.S. sanctions against HezbollahPanel experts Thursday were unanimous in designating Hezbollah a terrorist organization and a threat to regional stability, and called for strong action from Congress to financially undermine the group.In order to make the U.S. legislation "more impactful," Levitt prompted Congress to expand the list of embargoed Hezbollah-affiliated entities, target Hezbollah's "criminal support network" and impose sanctions on other parties outside the Middle East that are cooperating with the group.When asked whether Hezbollah should be considered a state or nonstate actor, Levitt blamed the U.S. for allowing Hezbollah to gain legitimacy by participating in political life as a formal state actor. "If Iran asked Hezbollah to get involved in circumstances that are problematic [and against its interest], what would Hezbollah do?" she asked, implying Hezbollah would follow Iran's orders.
