Na veel gesoebat en uitgebreid overleg was de EU er eindelijk uit: men gaat de militaire tak van Hezbollah voortaan boycotten, maar met de politieke blijft men zaken doen. Handig zo’n splitsing om de kool en de geit te sparen. Jammer alleen dat niet alleen zionisten, maar ook Hezbollah zelf aangeeft dat beide vleugels ‘one and the same’ zijn.
Hezbollah international relations official Ammar Moussawi admitted on Thursday that Hezbollah’s political and military wings are one and the same and slammed the European Union’s decision to blacklist his party, describing it as an insult to Lebanon, its people and the resistance.
Following his talks with EU Ambassador to Lebanon Angelina Eichhorst he said:
“Everyone knows that Hezbollah’s political and military wings are one and the same”.
Moussawi added: “Israel may benefit from the blacklisting of Hezbollah, but we know that it does not need an excuse to attack Lebanon.”
“We informed Eichhorst of our rejection of the EU decision, which we deem as an American and Israeli product.” Moussawi said
But Eichhorst said the EU decision does not justify any retaliatory action by any country, including Israel, against Lebanon.
According to Eichhorst the primary reason for blacklisting Hezbollah’s military wing was the Burgas bombing.
Bulgaria’s Interior Ministry distributed today photos and information about the two wanted persons in connection with last year’s terror attack in the Black Sea city of Burgas.
One year after the deadly terror attack at the Sarafovo airport, the authorities are asking Bulgarians to cooperate and provide information about the two, who are believed to have been involved in the attack.
The two Hezbollah suspects in the bus bombing were identified as Meliad FARAH (also known as Hussein HUSSEIN), born on November 5, 1980, Lebanese-Australian citizen, and Hassan El HAJJ HASSAN, born on March 22, 1988, Lebanese-Canadian citizen, according to the media statement of the Interior Ministry. Apparently there is no connection between Hassan the suspect and caretaker Minister of agriculture Hassan El HAJJ HASSAN who represents Hezbollah in the outgoing cabinet.
