Report: Arnold Schwarzenegger helped convince Austria to vote for Hezbullah ban

Austrian-born former California governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger helped convince the Austrian government to agree to banning Hezbullah, according to a report in the Algemeiner. Austria was one of the last holdouts.
Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, an Austrian by birth and the former governor of California, sent a letter to the country’s chancellor, Werner Faymann, to express his belief in the importance of an EU move to blacklist the Lebanese terror organization.
According to Maariv, Austria initially vehemently opposed the move, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Feymann and the country’s president, and with the help of Schwarzenegger was able to convince the Austrians to support the measure.
