Video: Inside the Hezbollah 'theme park' where children are taught the glory of martyrdom
Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has built a multi-million pound theme park designed to indoctrinate its children about the glory of martyrdom against its enemy Israel. The mostly-outdoor museum features barbed wire, tanks, rockets, archive video footage and a lot of guns.
Visitors are able to walk around replica war scenes that feature destroyed Israeli tanks - including one symbolically rendered impotent by a twisted firing barrel - and grave stones lying on their side.
The video segment of the tour allows visitors to watch a history of Hezbollah that clearly sets out the organisation's grievances with Israel and celebrates its victories against it.
The theme park was constructed atop one of their strongholds in the town of Mleeta.
It was designed to attract a wide range of visitors, including children and western tourists.
A walk inside what was once an active bunker even allows tourists to hold onto a machine gun, just like Hezbollah fighters once did.
New footage has emerged after a reporter for Vice.com took a guided tour of the museum.
And while it might make for a fascinating day trip, Hezbollah's real motive is to promote what it calls 'resistance tourism'. (...)
