Obama's 'Middle East Peace Process': sanctions against Lebanon


British and Dutch urge sanctions against Lebanon's Hezbollah

Fri, Sep 7, 2012 - PAPHOS, Cyprus (Reuters) - Britain and the Netherlands urged other EU governments on Friday to join the United States in imposing sanctions on the Lebanese political and militant group Hezbollah for providing support to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad.

Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal said the European Union should brand Hezbollah a terrorist organization, a move that would enable the bloc to freeze the group's assets in Europe.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said London would like to see the EU "designate and sanction the military wing of Hezbollah".

But other EU member states, which have blacklisted the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, have resisted U.S. and Israeli pressure to do the same to Hezbollah.

Several EU countries have argued that such a move could destabilize the balance of power in Lebanon and add to tensions in the Middle East.

In August, Washington imposed a new round of largely symbolic sanctions against Syria and Hezbollah and said it hoped other countries would take action against the Lebanese group.

Britain, France and Germany also called on Friday for new sanctions against Iran over its 'nuclear program'.

At the same time, and that is is typical for the western hypocrisy, they keep silence about the Israeli nukes which are really a threat for world peace given the Israeli aggressive policy and its constant hunger for more power in the Middle East.

Something about terrorists: Some times ago America's president Obama signed a secret order to authorize U.S. support for the armed gangs and the terrorist attacks in Syria.  And past week, British Foreign Secretary William Hague who is very close relationship with Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman, said 'Britain would step up its support for the terrorist attacks in Syria, providing the armed gangs with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million)'.

As the Director of the Russian Center for Analyzing World Arms Trade, Igor Korotchenko, said 'the US and Britain are responsible for the victims and suffering in Syria by arming terrorists and rejecting a solution'.

Since 2001, he proposes to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians. He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas. Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.  In 2011, Lieberman became the first Foreign Minister to sever ties with the Mossad.  On August 23th, 2012, has urged the international community to help oust Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas whose policies he called "an obstacle to peace".
