Pressure is mounting upon the UK Government to ban Hezbollah in its entirety. There has been speculation that the Home Office could make an announcement soon, but until it is confirmed we must do all we can to ensure Home Secretary Sajid Javid makes the right decision.

Since our campaign began in June 2017:

  • Thousands of CUFI supporters have written to the Home Secretary to ban Hezbollah
  • In addition, thousands of CUFI supporters wrote to the Home Office to stop London’s “Al Quds Day” march
  • Over 18,000 CUFI supporters have signed our “Ban Hezbollah” petition

There is still an opportunity to add YOUR name to this petition!

CUFI will be approaching the Home Secretary again and would like to have an even greater number of signatures to present. By signing, we demonstrate an even stronger voice in support of Israel and against terror.



Why Hezbollah should be banned

The Lebanese-based terrorist organisation is banned throughout the world, including by the Arab League, United States, France and Israel, but not in the UK.

This must change!

Britain has only banned Hezbollah’s “military” arm but not its “political” wing meaning there is a legal loophole that is currently allowing support for the organisation to grow. However Hezbollah, by its own admission, does not differentiate between its political and military wings. The flag, which features an assault rifle, is used for both. There is no difference! Hezbollah should be banned in the UK entirely.

Hezbollah is an anti-Israel, anti-West organisation that should NOT be allowed in Britain, yet yesterday its supporters marched through central London flying Hezbollah flags. Organisers used a legal loophole to encourage protesters to carry the flag at the Al Quds march, which is an annual day created to call for the destruction of Israel.

Hezbollah calls for Islamist revolution around the world, has carried out terror attacks for over 30 years, and calls for the “liberation of Jerusalem” and for the destruction of Israel. Backed by Iran, it has tens of thousands of rockets that can reach every city in Israel.

Enough is enough. If Britain is to genuinely say “no to terror” then all terrorist organisations must be banned without compromise. Proscribing Hezbollah is one simple step that the UK Government can take in ensuring that extremism will not be tolerated in this country.

Therefore, we call upon the UK Government to ban Hezbollah in the UK in its entirety.
