Support Grows in Europe for Listing Hezbollah as Terror Group

Post by Dennis324 on Sun May 26, 2013 4:31 pm


Reversing long-held positions, the governments of Germany and France have both signaled their support for the European Union to designate Hezbollah – or at least its purported “military wing” – as a terrorist organization. It comes amid growing evidence that, in its stepped-up terror activity around the world, the Lebanese Shi’ite group has not steered clear of Europe – even though Lebanese Shia communities there have been identified as a key source of funding.

Last February a Bulgarian investigation concluded that Hezbollah members were behind a bus bombing there last July in which a Bulgarian national and five Israeli tourists were killed.

Then in March, a court in Cyprus convicted a Hezbollah member with dual Lebanese-Swedish nationality of planning attacks against Israeli tourists. During his trial, Hossam Taleb Yaacoub admitted having also undertaken courier-type tasks for Hezbollah in France and the Netherlands, traveling on a Swedish passport.

Really? Only 'now' are they listing this group as a terrorist organization?

You know, we've (the USA) been telling the world that Hezbollah are terrorist. One would think that their shelling Israel a few years ago would tip them off. But noooOOOO... it took some terrorist acts in Europe to finally wake them up.
