CUFI-UK is calling upon the Government to ban Hezbollah, a Lebanese-based terrorist organisation.

The group is banned throughout the world, including by the Arab League (22 states), United States, France and Israel, but not in the UK.

This must change!



MPs are set to debate the proscribing of Hezbollah on Thursday 25th January. Please help us put pressure on the UK Government by signing the petition and then emailing your MP, asking them to attend.

Britain has only banned its “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 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.

Hezbollah is an anti-Israel, anti-West organisation that should NOT be allowed in Britain, yet last year its supporters marched through central London flying Hezbollah flags. Organisers used the 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.

Enough is enough. If Britain is to genuinely say “no to terror” then all terrorist organisations must be banned without compromise. Following the Arab League and United States in 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.
