Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Will the indictments be enough to blacklist Hizbullah in EU and elsewhere?

One of the main “benefits” of the STL process of course was that in targeting Hizbullah, the party’s enemies could FINALLY have enough ammo to de-legitimize it in the EU and beyond – a GREAT GOAL for years – since Hizbullah is only considered a terrorist party by a handful of countries led by the US, Israel and Canada (where a fabricated quote helped tip the balance).

This is the moment hizbullah’s foes have been waiting for – will it be enough? I don’t think so… I think only a conviction could do that. But we will see soon enough as these forces are gearing up for a broad based delegit campaign.
