A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful . . . .

I am not making this up -- these excerpts come from Regime Change Iran

Hezbollah’s Shi’ite youth movement, “The Imam al-Mahdi Scouts”

Hezbollah’s Shi’ite youth movement, “The Imam al-Mahdi Scouts,” has tens of thousands of members.

The Imam al-Mahdi Scouts1 are a Hezbollah youth movement which was established in May 1985, after the IDF withdrew from the security zone in south Lebanon . It has branches in the Shi’ite communities of Beirut , the Beqa’a Valley and south Lebanon . It received a permit for its activities from the Lebanese ministry of education in September 1992, seven years after its founding, and today they associated with the Federation of Lebanese Scouts. There are approximately 42,000 male and female Imam al-Mahdi scouts between the ages of 8-16 organized into 499 groups.

The emblem of the Imam al-Mahdi Scouts. The fleur-de-lis is the international scout emblem, however, every scouting organization adds its own elements. In this case the additions are two swords and a hand raised as if taking an oath. The inscription under the emblem reads, “Obey!”

[Who needs "Be Prepared" if you only have to "Obey!"]

The Imam al-Mahdi Scouts calendar is a particularly effective marketing device, and there is a series of booklets with titles such as “ Sharon the Evil One,” “The Story of Sayid ‘Abbas Mussawi, the Greatest Shadeed of the Islamic Resistance,” “The Jihad Youths” and others.

[I hear they sell popcorn, too. Varieties include "Beirut Buttered," "Western Decadence" (Chocolate covered), and the favoite
"Popcorn of Paradise" (Caramel). Buy Mahdi Scout popcorn -- it's the Tempting Treat of Tyre, just like Imam used to make.]
