‘Blacklisting Hezbollah shortsighted move by London’

A decision by the British government to impose a full ban on the activities of the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah is a shortsighted move, says a commentator.


UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid said on Monday that the British government would designate Hezbollah a “terrorist” entity as of Friday subject to the approval of the parliament.

Shabbir Hassanally, an activist and Islamic scholar, told Press TV on Tuesday that, “It is very sad, [and] it is very infantile really in terms of geopolitics. It shows a lack of insight [and] a lack of foresight on the part of those who have made this decision, because all it does is further isolate the British government.”

Hassanally said the decision “further puts the British government into an axis where it is an orbit around the Zionists and around the Americans.”
