Britain Ready to Outlaw Hezbollah Terrorist Group

Britain Ready to Outlaw Hezbollah Terrorist Group, by Simon Kent.

The UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid is ready to outlaw the Iran-sponsored Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah in its entirety, a senior Conservative source has said.

According to a report in the Jewish Chonicle, Mr. Javid will take “decisive action” after last weekend’s Al Quds Day march in London, where Hezbollah terror flags were once again flown.

Hezbollah is an illegal, anti-Semitic organisation, designated as a terror organization in its entirety by the Arab League, Bahrain, Canada, France, Israel, Australia, the Netherlands, and the United States. But the European Union, as well as the United Kingdom, maintain a difference between the group’s military and political wings, seeking only to proscribe the former.
