- Excerpt from Our Strongest Answer To Terrorism Funding:

As the world grapples with the latest Middle East crises, it is an ironic and sobering fact that the Lebanese banking community — one of the region’s strongest bulwarks of Western interest — now faces pressure to further reaffirm that its policies and practices are fully compliant with international standards.

Ironic, because no financial entities in the region have done more than the Lebanese to ensure compliance with international anti-money laundering standards. Sobering, because, if we weaken these institutions, we only loosen our grip on terrorist funding; further destabilize the entire region; and, in sum, defeat our own vital short-and long-range political objectives.
