France willing to declare Hezbullah's non-existent 'military wing' a terrorist organization

According to a report in the pan-Arabic daily al-Hayat, France is finally willing to designate Hezbullah as a terror organization. There's just one small catch: They're only willing to designate Hezbullah's 'military wing' and as we all know already, there is no such thing as a 'military wing' in Hezbullah.

This is from the first link.
According to the French source, Paris's openness to label the military wing of Hezbollah a terror organization stems from its responsibility for the Burgas attack and its participation in Syria's civil war on the side of Presisdent Bashar Assad.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius discussed the matter with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday, according to the report.
According to the source the move is more symbolic than practical because it will not lead the EU to blacklist the "political branch" of Hezbollah, and therefore, will not stop the organization from receiving funds from Europe.
The report came after a criminal court in Limassol, Cyprus, on Thursday sentenced Hossam Taleb Yaacoub, an admitted Hezbollah operative, to four years in prison for plotting to kill Israeli tourists on the island.
So they're willing to name Hezbullah a terror organization so long as they can keep on fundraising in Europe, Yellow-bellied cowards.
