Notably absent from this AFP report is the usually obligatory comment that, while the US and Israel do so, “The EU does not list Hezbollah as a terrorist entity.”

Why do you lie? Or if you thought that was true, why did you not check to validate your statement?

re: #1 Destro

Despite both begin having names that being with ‘H’, and possibly a few common traits, Hezbollah and Hamas are not the same organization.

Down-dings for inability/unwillingness to learn basic facts before leveling accusations at others and for the spouting of factually inaccurate propaganda in lieu of facts.
Destro, Hizb'allah is not Hamas or the Izz-a-dine al-Qassam Brigades, a fact that should take all of approximately 30 seconds to learn in the Internet age. The posted article speaks of a warning by U.S. officials about Hizb'allah, an Iranian-supported Shi'a group based in Lebanon, not the Musllim Brotherhood-affiliated Hamas movement that is based priamrily in the Gaza Strip. In the future, try getting the facts straight before accusing anyone of dishonesty.
Cinesimon: Cliches and propaganda do not substitute for facts. Before you go off spouting the former, I suggest educating yourself about the latter.

re: #4 sliv_the_eli

Hezbollah has a military wing and a political wing. The Irish Republican Army is an example. Individual European nations have for example officially listed Hezbollah in at least some part as a terrorist organization. The hostility to the EU by Americans is puzzling to me. Always has been since the "Freedom Fries" days.

If you're going to ban Hezbollah as terrorist organisation, by the same stroke, you literally have to ban nearly every political party in Lebanon; even groups that Israel supported like the Kataeb Party, would be banned. Hezbollah only get's all the media because it operated mainly in the Shia south Lebanon against the Israeli occupation of south Lebanon.
