Slovenia Declares Full Hezbollah Ban

Germany made the decision back in May; now Europe is following suit.

BY WATCH JERUSALEM STAFF

On November 30, Slovenia declared Hezbollah, in its entirety, a terrorist organization. This adds yet another nation to the growing list of European states who no longer differentiate between the group’s political and armed wings.

Until recently, most European countries considered only Hezbollah’s military wing a terrorist organization, declaring its political wing an integral part of Lebanon’s political makeup. In the last year and a half, however, 16 countries—nine in just the last six months—announced that they consider the entire group to be a terrorist organization.

With the Lebanese economy in a nosedive and funding from a sanction-inflicted Iran reduced, this animosity in Europe against Hezbollah couldn’t come at a more critical time. More importantly, this action further illustrates Europe’s move—albeit a slow one—against Iranian interests.
