One Z or 2?

We are here. Hezbollah is attacking our new home land. Or is it Hizbolah. Whatever it is, there sure are a number of ways to spell the organization. And that's just the English version of the name. Then there is the additional option of pronouncing it with the Israeli "Ch," opening up a whole new level of spelling possibilities. There is the double ZZ Hezzbollah and Hizzbollah, neither of which I'm in favor of. And is it one L or 2 Ls at the end.

I would love it if someone could clarify how to spell their organization. Just after we finish bombing them into oblivion.

The only "Z" that really counts, at this point is the one that starts the word which describes you and yours - Zionist! And you are real ones, not like rest of us here in the Golah! Welcome to Zion, even if the initial welcome seems a bit uninviting!

Your mom was the lead story on Channel 7 News last night, she even showed a picture of your kids. She spoke about your brother in the North, and that she is coming to Israel in 2 weeks.

Glad to hear you are settling in, despite the situation.

Shabbat Shalom.

I'd consult the APA handbook. I'm sure they figured out the proper spelling years ago.

Things need to be accurate when they denounce Israel.

the name Hizbolla is 2 words Hizb(party)and Alla(god) god's party
i think they are the devil's party and should be named Hizboll-shaytan(satan's party)
