Hezbollah, an Iran-backed terror organization, has long used European territory to fundraise and procure sophisticated Western technology and weapons for its nefarious goals. The Netherlands is the only EU member to have outlawed Hezbollah’s entire organization. Britain merely banned Hezbollah’s military wing in 2008, because the Lebanese Shiite group targeted U.K. troops in Iraq. The remaining 26 EU countries permit Hezbollah to function as a legal political organization, allowing it to fundraise and recruit.
