Chickens have wings; terrorist organizations have partners in crime
The United States, Canada, Israel, the Netherlands, and Bahrain designate Hezb'allah a terrorist organization; Britain and Australia outlaw only Hezb'allah's "terrorist wing" but permit its "political wing" to organize and raise money (only for political activity, of course).
A motion by Britain will put the British/Australian formula on the agenda of the European Union, perhaps as early as June. In one sense, it is a step forward for the EU, which currently looks upon Hezb'allah's activities as unremarkable. In another sense, however, it is absurd.

Brussels as the headquarters of the European Union is the nominal "capital of Europe.” One would expect the city to be the center of enlightenment—the exemplification of political and social tolerance and freedom of speech, assembly and religion, not to mention an advocate of human rights
Disappointingly, recent events have shown that Brussels has increasingly become a place of lies, deliberate disinformation, political manipulation, anti-Semitism and attacks on Israel. Recent developments, particularly Islamist political as well as physical aggressiveness, justify this sad conclusion.
