After Germany Banned Hizbullah Activities, Now It's the EU's Turn

(Al Arabiya) Christoph Bernstiel - Hizbullah is spreading violence and terror across the whole world and has been exploiting Germany as a safe haven. Our security authorities have been keeping a close eye on the organization for some time. In 2008, Germany banned the Hizbullah TV channel Al Manar for broadcasting hate propaganda and anti-Israel content, intended to radicalize Muslims in Germany. The German Bundestag last December called on the federal government to ban the activities of Hizbullah, which the government announced on April 30, 2020. At present, the Netherlands and the UK also classify Hizbullah as a terrorist organization, and we can expect further EU states to follow suit. In addition, the distinction between its political and military wings may well be abolished at the European level.
