Hezbollah to the UK: Stop Deluding Yourselves about Hezbollah

A piece on the BBC website concludes with the following:

The United Kingdom government has recently decided to distinguish between the two faces of Hezbollah – by talking to its politicians while keeping the military wing on the terrorist list.

But Mahmoud, the fighter, says the UK is fooling itself by making this distinction.

“We have two arms, but we belong to one body. There is no such things as the military wing or the political wing of Hezbollah – we are all part of one resistance,” he said.

“Hezbollah will become a purely political party only when Israel ceases to exist,” he said.

It’s pretty hilarious when the people you’re trying to help with your fantasies tell you to stop being so gullible.
