Likud Beytenu MK Avigdor Liberman said the European Union’s decision to include the Hezbollah military wing on its list of terror organizations was “insufficient.”

“As is their wont, the Europeans went just half way and came to a decision that was partial and insufficient,” said Liberman, the former foreign minister who heads the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

“The military wing and the political wing of Hezbollah are two sides of the same coin,” he said. “Any attempt to portray this organization as one that has an extremist side and a more moderate side is like asking whether a cannibal could be a vegetarian.”
