Journalists and Hezbollah

I believe it was Michael J. Totten (new link today) that first let me know about the direct intimidation by Hezbollah. Today Tim Blair notes another journalist threatened by these terrorists.
The Party of God has a copy of every journalist’s passport, and they’ve already hassled a number of us and threatened one."

Fun. For all the grief we give them when it's deserved it should be noted that their job when out there and not just copying ap stories is a tricky and sometimes dangerous one.
