Efforts to get Berlin to move on this issue were given a huge boost by the US ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell.
After years of balking, Germany is expected next week to blacklist Hezbollah’s political wing, in a move that Israel’s former ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor said would have far-reaching implications for Hezbollah and finally force the EU to take a tougher stance against the terror organization.
As head of the The Abba Eban Institute for International Diplomacy at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Prosor has spearheaded an effort to move Berlin toward sanctioning Hezbollah. He said that Germany’s interior, justice and foreign ministers are scheduled to meet next Wednesday with the interior ministers of all the German states to designate the political wing of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
