“UK mulls lifting ban on Hezbollah”

Only last year, the government put Hezbollah’s military wing on a list of proscribed organisations over its alleged training of insurgents in Iraq.

But speaking to members of the Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee, Foreign Office minister Bill Rammell confirmed that the government is now looking for ways to establish contact with the organisation’s political wing.

“Ways to establish contact”? Please. Lebanon, bless it, is Back Channels ‘R Us. Communication is not the problem. Either Mr Rammell is being foolish or this is the signal of a knave.

Oh joy for Mr Moussawi, I suppose.

Rue Britannia.
