What's in a name?

Some of you might be wondering why it matters so much whether Europe decides to designate Hezbullah a terrorist organization. Please consider this.
A ban on Hezbollah could cripple it. Hezbollah‘s Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah acknowledged this reality several years ago, noting that an EU terror listing "would dry up the sources of finance, end moral, political and material support, stifle voices, whether they are the voices of the resistance or the voices which support the resistance, pressure states which protect the resistance in one way and another, and pressure the Lebanese state, Iran and Iraq, but especially the Lebanese state, in order to classify it as a state which supports terrorism."

All well and good to the mentioned potential consequences.

However, the overriding moral issue is that all decent, God-fearing people have an unavoidable duty to always confront and fight evil. To combat evil, we must always start by facing and speaking the truth.

In this case, Hezbollah IS an evil terrorist organization.

No amount of parsing by appeasers evades this truth. That they also sponsor hospitals, schools, etc. is irrelevant. So what? The Nazis also sponsored free soup kitchens for the hungry unemployed. Just show up and a hungry German got a free meal, with the only cost a morally insidious one, of listening to a Nazi speaker spouting the evil Nazi propaganda as the hungry man ate. Food for the body and poison for the mind.
