Campaign Against Antisemitism has launched a Parliamentary Petition calling for the full proscription of Hizballah. We urgently need at least 10,000 signatures to force the Government to respond.
Supporters of Hizballah annually parade through London and are permitted to do so on the grounds that only Hizballah’s “military wing” is proscribed. Even Hizballah admits there is no “military wing”. We must stop these parades on our streets.
The next pro-Hizballah parade is planned for 10th June.
Britain proscribes Hizballah’s “military wing” but, at the behest of the Foreign Office, not its “political wing”. Hizballah mocks the distinction. For example in 2012 its Deputy Secretary-General said: “We don’t have a military wing and a political one”.
Hizballah seeks the extermination of Jews. For example in 2004 its Secretary-General said: “If Jews all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. It has been responsible for terrorist attacks murdering Jews from Buenas Aires to Burgas, and has even been blamed for two bombings targeting Jews in London in 1994.
The Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, is the only person whose signature can instantly proscribe the whole of Hizballah. We have already written an open letter to him along with a prominent Muslim anti-extremism organisation.
We need at least 10,000 signatures as fast as possible in order to ensure that the Government responds formally. Please sign the petition and share the link with your friends and family: https://antisemitism.org/petition/.
