LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Monday it would ban Hezbollah, adding the Lebanese Shi’ite group in its entirety to its list of banned terrorist organisations.

“Hezbollah is continuing in its attempts to destabilise the fragile situation in the Middle East – and we are no longer able to distinguish between their already banned military wing and the political party,” Home Secretary (interior minister) Sajid Javid said.

“Because of this, I have taken the decision to proscribe the group in its entirety.”

    Anyone associated with Hezbollah will be fined £10K and arrested. Australia will likely follow suit. Let's hope that puts pressure on the European Union to do the same.

    Some European countries (Netherlands/France) already have the whole organization listed in their Terror groups lists
    UK has no influence anymore nor can 'pressure' the European Union to do the same, even though i would very much wish so.

    I just hope us, Lebanese expatriates, living abroad won't pay the price for the actions of our 'honorable compatriots'
    I'm sick already of being questioned at every airport just for holding a Lebanese passport and growing a beard.

    I think that was all a conservative media charade
    i can already see Labour morons condemning this move
    Labour should keep their mouth shut because there are no points to score on this front in the UK


    Corbyn sees HA as friends to the UK and Israel the enemy :lol::lol:

    I'm fine with classifying Hizbullah as a terrorist organization, as long as they classify Israel as a terrorist state, too.
    There are more human rights violations against Israel than there are against Hizbullah.

    Comparing an Islamist group with the country that is close to finding the cure to cancer and contributes to the world more than the rest of the whole region combined? Israel acts only in self defense, Hezbollah is a typical terrorist group that acts out of fanactism.

    since when is 'considering HA as terrorist' labeled as 'slandering a friendly nation'
    isn't the US a friendly nation in your book then ?

    Besides France does consider the military wing as terrorist same as the whole EU

    1- i've corrected my post later in this thread
    2- Historical or not, why what's allowed to the US is not allowed to France ?
    3- UK is a friendly nation too and provides support and aid to Lebanon annually

    It's already happening. I know people who are having trouble depositing their own money in Lebanese banks, or transferring sums abroad.

    dude i think this tweet about Macron today is fake as i couldn't find the statement on foreign media

    read this:
    Hezbollah

    this confirms what i already 'thought' or maybe 'knew'
    Notice for EU and UK, it considers the military wing as Terrorist (wasn't updated for UK yet)
    Notice for France, it says it considers the Organization as terrorist since 2013 (after Burgas)

    So, apologize to me right now

    this is a big statement and i cannot believe no french newspaper/news site wrote about it.
    find me a french article mentioning this statement and i'll gladly apologize to you.

    My brother used to warn me about events in Paris hours before they appear on french news websites.
    So if you want to know what Macro said about HA you need to wait 24 hours
