Today, as we mark the 41st anniversary of the devastating bombing at the American embassy in Beirut, we do so with a mix of sorrow, sadness, and anger. This tragic event, orchestrated by the Iranian Mullahs and executed by their terrorist proxy, Hezbollah, remains a painful chapter in the history of both Lebanon and America.

The bombing took place amidst the tumultuous backdrop of Lebanon’s internal strife, and on that fateful day, Hezbollah, at the behest of the Iranian regime, carried out an attack that claimed the lives of 17 Americans, 32 Lebanese, and 14 other individuals present at or near the embassy.

As we reflect on this dark chapter, it’s imperative to shed light on the reprehensible actions of the Iranian regime, not only within the Middle East, but on a global scale. Hezbollah, as the Mullahs’ militant terrorist army, continues to pose a significant threat to peace and stability, particularly in Lebanon, where its influence remains pervasive.

The culpability of the Iranian regime in the 1983 bombing is indisputable, as evidenced by overwhelming proof that implicates the Mullahs in this heinous act of terrorism. Since its inception in 1982, Hezbollah has been nurtured, funded, and directed by Tehran, serving as a tool to further its destructive agenda.

The bombing of the U.S. embassy in Beirut was a stark demonstration of the Iranian regime’s disregard for human life and international norms. It underscores their relentless pursuit of chaos and instability in pursuit of their own interests.

It’s essential to remind our beloved people of Lebanon that Hezbollah is not a defender of their interests but a puppet of the Iranian regime, responsible for countless atrocities and crimes against humanity. The 1983 bombing was just one episode in a long history of violence perpetrated by Hezbollah in service of Iran’s agenda.

Furthermore, Iran’s aggressive, hostile and terrorism actions, whether through Hezbollah or its other terrorist proxies across the region, continue to undermine peace and stability in the Middle East. Innocent civilians bear the brunt of their expansionist and sectarian ambitions.

The Iranian regime’s pursuit of nuclear capabilities and its support for terrorist groups only serve to further destabilize the region and threaten global security. Until the Iranian people can freely govern themselves and the regime’s reign of terror is brought to an end, true peace and stability will remain elusive.

On this solemn anniversary, we offer our prayers and condolences to the families of the American soldiers and Lebanese citizens who lost their lives on April 18, 1983, victims of senseless violence perpetrated by Hezbollah and its masters in Tehran.
