After Germany outlaws Hezbollah, Israel hopes other EU states will follow suit
It appears that there is a limit to Germany’s willingness to turn a blind eye to Hezbollah’s activity within its borders and in Europe in general. For years Germany has refused to declare Hezbollah’s political branch a terrorist organization because of the economic interests it has with Iran. Showing a change of heart, the German government banned the military wing of Hezbollah last month. However, it did so without legally defining the group as terrorists because it doesn’t operate an official branch in the country.
