Hizbollah Gimme Cap
My friend Elliott brought me this Hizbollah baseball cap from Lebanon. Since Hizbollah is classified as a terrorist organization by the US government, it's important to note that Elliott bought the cap not from the party, but from a street vendor in Beirut. (I can't remember who is pictured wearing the hat.) The cap features the Hizbollah flag, which reads, "Hizbollah (the party of God) are the victors: The Islamic Resistance Movement in Lebanon." 23 Hizbollah members sit in the current Lebanese parliament, and two members of Hizbollah are ministers in the Lebanese government.
