Hizbullah to Be Outlawed in Britain

(Jewish Chronicle-UK) Lee Harpin - British Home Secretary Sajid Javid will take steps to proscribe Hizbullah later this year, a senior Conservative source has said. Hizbullah's military wing was banned as a terror group in Britain in 2008, but a legal loophole allows supporters to fly its flags at events such as last Sunday's Al Quds Day rally in London because Hizbullah's political arm is not banned. "Sajid has vowed to take decisive action on the matter. He will make this very clear over the forthcoming weeks," the source said. At a Westminster Hall debate last week, Phillip Hollobone, Conservative MP for Kettering, said: "Hizbullah is an Iranian creation that sits as the crown jewel in Iran's regional strategy of Jihadi revolutionary warfare. It is in short the most powerful armed non-state actor in the world. This is an organization which potentially is more lethal than ISIS, and it is all backed and funded by Iran."
