BERLIN – Since Hossam Taleb Yaacoub, a Lebanese-Swedish man, confessed to membership in Hezbollah last week in a Cypriot criminal court proceeding, close observers of the radical Islamic group have been warning of new dangers if the group is not sanctioned.

”Terrorism is terrorism. But where it concerns the terrorist organization Hezbollah, Europe has been, and still is, a giant ostrich,” Wim Kortenoeven, a former Dutch MP and one of the Netherland’s leading Middle East experts, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday. “I fear that the European citizens are going to pay a very heavy price for this dangerous policy.”

Kortenoeven added that Hezbollah and its terrorist Iranian masters are not only the enemies of the Jewish people and the Jewish State, but also of Europe and Western civilization as a whole.
