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."
