In Lebanon, VICE Explores 'Resistance Tourism' At Hezbollah Theme Park (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A video crew from VICE is the latest to explore a Hezbollah theme park in the Lebanese town of Mleeta, an internet favorite for its almost-unbelievable combination of family-friendly attractions and Iranian-backed anti-Israel propaganda.

The latest tour of the museum -- filled with barbed wire, rockets and materiel -- focuses on the recent history of the group, which the U.S. Department of State considers a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

Host Ryan Duffy touches on Hezbollah's role in political violence in the region, as well as contributions that Hezbollah makes to Lebanese society. In a light moment, he even checks out the theme park's gift shop.

Part two of the mini-documentary hits the web on Tuesday.
