EU Counterterrorism Coordinator: Hezbollah is not on terror list

with one comment

The European Union’s counterterrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerckhove says Lebanon’s Hezbollah is not on the list of terror groups. Gilles de Kerckhove said the EU would not put Hezbollah on the list of terror groups because several member states, including France, oppose such a move (¡!).

The EU official made the comment in a seminar on ‘Terrorism and Europe’ organized at the European Parliament in Brussels. Some of the members of the European Union’s Parliament launched a campaign this week to have Hezbollah listed as a terrorist organization by the 27-member bloc. A coalition of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) circulated a “written declaration” on Tuesday seeking to have Hezbollah added to the EU terror list.

De Kerckhove asserted that Hezbollah is represented in the government of Lebanon and it has representatives in Parliament and holds one seat in the Cabinet.“It plays a role on the Lebanese political scene and several countries think that this could bring them closer to the democratic process,” he added.

THE OUTRAGED SPLEEN OF ZION: EU Counterterrorism Coordinator: Hezbollah is not on terror list.

I’m shocked (ehh, well, really?). If the EU anti-terrorist chief cannot recognise a terrorist, how on earth is he doing his work? How is he fighting terrorism, going against terrorism (counter-terrorism…)?

So, what would happen if Algerian terrorist would have won seats in French Parliament? Would that have them made less terrorists?
