Australia to Designate All of Hezbollah as a Terrorist Organization

JERUSALEM, Israel – Australia announced on Wednesday that it will designate the entire Hezbollah organization as a “terrorist organization.”

Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews said that the Iran-backed Lebanese group “continues to threaten terrorist attacks and provide support to terrorist organizations,” and poses a “real” and “credible” threat to Australia.

Some western countries have designated Hezbollah as a terror group but differentiate between its pollical and military wings. This new decision by Australia would label all of Hezbollah as a terror entity and make being a member, supporting the group, or doing business with Hezbollah a criminal offense.

Hezbollah is considered a terrorist group by the United States, Israel, and the Arab League. A growing number of countries have moved to declare it a terror organization. Last month, Saudi Arabia placed Hezbollah’s financial arm on its terror blacklist.

Andrews also said Australia would designate a Neo-Nazi, White Supremacist group called “The Base” as a terror group. The Base, which began in the United States in 2018, is also active in Canada, Europe and Australia.
