German Lawmakers Call for Ban on All Hizbullah Activities

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isa. 9:6

Hizbullah is a political group with a terrorist wing that represents Shiite Muslims in Lebanon and has close ties to Iran. In a motion adopted on Thur. 19 Dec. 2019 German lawmakers said all activities of Hizbullah, including fundraising, should be banned in Germany. It also petitioned Berlin to persuade other European countries to no longer treat the political organization separately from its anti-Israel terrorist wing, which is already mostly banned from operating in Europe. Mathias Middelberg, the spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in parliament, said, "It is unacceptable that Hizbullah is waging a terrorist fight against Israel in the Middle East, which is being financed through worldwide criminal activities. In view of Germany's special responsibility toward Israel, we call on the government to ban all activities for Hizbullah in Germany.  The separation between a political and a military arm should be abandoned, and Hizbullah as a whole should be placed on the EU terrorist list," he said. The European Union considers only Hizbullah’s military arm as a terrorist organization and not its political arm. However, EU members the Netherlands and the United Kingdom consider all of Hizbullah a terrorist entity, as do the United States, Canada, Israel and even the Arab League. Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz said, "The Bundestag's resolution is an important step in the international struggle against terrorism, particularly against the terrorist organization Hizbullah and its patron, Iran."
