No, I'm not speaking in tongues.

Hizbullah – The Jerusalem Post
Hezbollah – Toronto Star, Asia Times, Jewish World Review
Hizballah – Front Page Magazine, Cybercast News
Hizbollah – The Jordan Times, Sky News

Is it a gender modifier?

Like "his and hers"?

You know--hiz and hez--possibly a dialect thing!

"Party of god" somehow reminds me of the front cover of the original "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" album.

"Hez" may be a designator for those grenade Launcher Grannies!
