‘EU’s blacklisting of Hezbollah gives Israel leeway to continue genocide’
A political commentator says by blacklisting the military wing of Hezbollah, Europe has given the Israeli regime leeway to freely continue its policy of “genocide and eternal expansion,” Press TV reports.
“As regards Europe and Lebanon … those idiots in Europe listed Hezbollah and therefore have given Israel the chance to attack Hezbollah as a terrorist organization,” the London-based political analyst and commentator Rodney Shakespeare told Press TV.
“Europe has sold out to the Zionists and has given the opportunity to Israel to attack Hezbollah. And Hezbollah is the one group which has actually fought al-Qaeda,” Shakespeare added.
Last Monday, the EU added Hezbollah’s military wing to the bloc’s list of “terrorist organizations.”
The decision was made after hours of discussions by the bloc’s 28 foreign ministers at its monthly meeting, following intense diplomatic pressure by Washington and Tel Aviv.
Hezbollah rejected EU’s decision in a Tuesday statement, saying the union was bowing to pressure from the US and the Israeli regime.
Referring to the planned resumption of US-backed talks between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel, Shakespeare said the negotiations were only aimed at buying Tel Aviv time to build more settlements.
“The truth is that Zionist Israel is an expanding entity and therefore it cannot say where any border will be until it gets to its ultimate aim, which is to be in Syria, right the way through Lebanon, down to the Nile and across the River Euphrates,” he added.
The Palestinian-Israeli talks were halted in September 2010 over disagreements on Israeli settlement construction in the occupied West Bank.
On July 25, Israeli Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom said the talks may resume in Washington next week.
Most Palestinian factions have condemned the decision by acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas to restart talks with the Israeli regime.
