Obama: The world should brand Hezbollah a terrorists group

Share:

hezbollah flag gunUS President Barack Obama on Thursday launched a strongly worded attack against Hezbollah during his key speech to the students in Israel, calling on every country that values justice to brand the Shiite movement a terrorist organization.

I think about the five Israelis who boarded a bus in Bulgaria, who were blown up because of where they came from; who were robbed of the ability to live, and love, and raise families. That’s why every country that values justice should call Hezbollah what it truly is – a terrorist organization. Because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stockpiles rockets to shoot at cities, and supports the massacre of men, women and children in Syria.

His comments come in reference to EU hesitation to blacklist the Lebanese party after EU member Bulgaria named Hezbollah as responsible for a July bombing in the seaside report of Burgas which killed five Israeli tourists and their local driver.

Commenting on the Syrian issue and the chemical weapons he said:

The fact that Hezbollah’s ally – the Assad regime – has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. We will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. And I have made it clear to Bashar al-Assad and all who follow his orders: we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people or the transfer of these weapons to terrorists. The world is watching, and we will hold you accountable.

Hezbollah faced further foreign pressure on Thursday after a Cypriot court on Thursday convicted Lebanese national Hossam Yakoub—who confessed to being a Hezbollah member—on charges of “membership in a criminal organization.”

The EU has been reluctant on naming Hezbollah a terrorist organization, which would require a unanimous decision among the 27-member state union.

    I wonder what the USA should be called in Vietnam and south Ameica. Henry Kissinger under the pressure of the controller of Chili copper mine in USA ordered the assassination of the the president of Chii Allende and Installed Pinoche the dictator . Just name one country in the world that USA played a major role to install democracy and the answer will be 0. Is Israel killing 22000 Lebanese civilain in 1982 under the excuse of driving the PLO out is an innocent Act. The powerful judge the weak since the creation, Mr Obama isn’t you who said in your time will be 2 nations and Palestinian full authority state. I think the record will show in three years from now that you were the worst president ever to take office!!!!

    What would you say about the thousands being killed a year in Palestine? Or the murders happening in bahrian and saudi arabia? How about the killings that happen in your own country everyday because of loose gun control? You see Mr. Obama look at our country(the US) then talk about others.
