French MP: Hezbollah Must Be Declared a Terrorist Organization

French MP Meyer Habib, who serves as deputy chairman of the parliament's foreign affairs committee, is demanding that France declare Hezbollah a terrorist organization, as Germany has done recently.

Habib said that in the wake of the deadly explosion in Beirut "the Shiite terrorist organization Hezbollah's grip on Lebanon is the only question that should concern us today."

"The Lebanese are now declaring this loud and clear: The disaster is a direct result of the Islamic Republic of Iran's takeover of the Land of the Cedars. Already a year ago, on July 23, 2019, I wrote a letter to the President of France asking to declare Hezbollah a terrorist organization," Habib recalled.

He continued, "Hezbollah has a lot of French blood on its hands and our country was even one of its first victims.”

In 2013, the European Union blacklisted Hezbollah's “military wing” as a terrorist organization, while failing to blacklist the group’s political arm.
