Via Chuckles, Gatestone again:
The recent cases in Bulgaria and Cyrus provide irrefutable evidence that Hezbollah is highly active in Europe, where it raises funds, launders money, traffics drugs, recruits operatives and plots attacks with impunity.
The main objective of Israeli President Shimon Peres’s week-long state visit to Brussels, Paris and Strasbourg March 5-12 is apparently to persuade reluctant European leaders to designate Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement a terrorist organization.
Blacklisting Hezbollah would deprive the militant group of significant sources of fundraising by enabling the freezing its bank accounts and assets in Europe. It would also facilitate intra-European police cooperation aimed at pursuing and arresting Hezbollah operatives believed to be living underground throughout Europe.
Several Western countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia and the Netherlands officially classified Hezbollah as a terrorist organization years ago. But the European Union has steadfastly resisted calls to sanction Hezbollah.
EU leaders say they do not have enough information to make a judgment about whether Hezbollah is involved in terrorism.
Applied Myopia 101. If there was ever an issue that divides the Left and Right it is the Palestinian/Hamas/Hezbollah thing. “Not enough information” – LOL.
Not only that but it’s State sponsored terrorism too. Terrorism is where a non-State takes arms against a sovereign nation or people within that nation. In fact, the involvement of Iran raises it to an undeclared state of war, so the west has been justified in attacking Iran and wherever its weaponry is deployed for some time – casus belli.
Why Peres even thought he’d get agreement from the Marxist EU is beyond me. Talk about a pit of vipers in Brussels and across Europe at government level. They hate Israel for the simple reason that the global elite do and are happy to drop the guard and let the Muslims do their worst from time to time when some new legislation is needed in the particular State.
Israel has only America and even there the current socialist government is anti-Israel so it is surrounded on all sides by the bulls of Bashan. About the only friends Israel has are Christians who are more centre-right in politics plus the centre-right itself.
