Trump's Words are Music to Hezbollah's Ears

“When [Donald Trump's] homegrown American conspiracy theorizing intersects with its Middle Eastern cousin, the results can be damaging and dangerous to America's standing and interests. ... Just this weekend, Hezbollah's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, publicly endorsed Mr. Trump's remarks [about Obama being the founder of ISIS]: 'This is an American presidential candidate. This was spoken on behalf of the Republican Party. He has data and documents.'”

-- Michael Wahid Hanna and Daniel Benaim in a NY Times Op-Ed, “How Do Trump's Conspiracy Theories Go Over in the Middle East? Dangerously.”
