Norwegian terrorist designation[edit]

I don't think there are enough sources for Norway's designation of Hezbollah as a terrorist org. Could someone please add more?

Edit request: Designation of Hezbollah by United States as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Organization[edit]

The Hezbollah page already documents (under "United States" header) that Hezbollah is designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and as a Specially Designated Terrorist Organization, but omits the more recently affixed SDGT (Specially Designated Global Terrorist Organization) designation. Verification available here:

Edit Request[edit]

Please add Polisario Front and Algeria to allies and Morocco as opponents. Here are all the sources. heck out Morocco-Iran relations, Hezbollah is supporting Polisario front. More sources:[1][2][3][4] fenetrejones (talk) 3:16, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Add Argentina to the list of nations who view Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Gcjimmerson (talk) 18:19, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Well, I've already made the petition but here goes a further source Source --CoryGlee (talk) 21:18, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Undone, all of those are saying preparing to sign, not have signed. If and when they actually announce something it can be added. nableezy - 14:52, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

@Nableezy: Please carefully read this, though not signed until July 18 it was officially confirmed by Secuirty Minsiter Patricia Bullrich --CoryGlee (talk) 15:09, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, read it. Read it carefully yourself, going past the headline to the first paragraph, which says

The government confirmed Thursday that it is preparing in a decree to designate the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah as a terrorist organizations with "concrete pretensions" to carry out "attacks" in Argentina, two weeks before the 25th anniversary of the bombing of AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina).

To emphasize the operative phrase here, Ill repeat it. is preparing in a decree to designate. That is they will be signing such a decree, not that they already have. nableezy - 15:12, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 12 July 2019[edit]

Can you add Argentina to the section "The following entities have listed Hezbollah as a terror group:"? They recently announced it before the 25th anniversary of the AMIA bombing. (talk) 17:46, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

See above, this is still future tense. If and when Argentina actually does this they can and will be added. nableezy - 17:49, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

@Nableezy: Yes, I now understand your position, it will be signed indeed on the anniversary of the AMIA bombing prior to the arrival of Mike Pompeo to Argentina. I'll keep you informed. --CoryGlee (talk) 19:07, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

Sure, once it is official let anybody here know and they will re-add it. nableezy - 19:12, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

@Nableezy: Hi Nableezy, hope you're doing OK, just to let you know (I'll be away perhaps), President Macri will sign the decree declaring Hezbollah as "terrorists" tomorrow morning. Source

EDIT: As always, the media is "amarillista" - "yellowish"... sensasionalist, the decree has not yet been signed. I'm sorry again, I trust the big media outlets and they still lie. Cheers --CoryGlee (talk) 16:50, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 17 July 2019[edit]

It have now been signed into law, Argentina should be included in "Opponents", in the below infobox and Hezbollah foreign relations. Source 1 Source 2

Translations: Source 1: "AMIA: compensation increases, they declare Hezbollah "terrorist" and there will be national mourning"

Source 2: "The Government includes Hezbollah in the list of terrorist organizations"

Edits: "Funding" (Claims about Iran)[edit]

The "Funding" subheading needs substantial editing in regards to the citations, which are either poor or completely missing. Citation 140 is a particular example, which pulls from a source that is not reputable in the field of Middle East politics and clearly has an agenda. Immediately following that citation, the figure "$200 million" is stated without any citation. These are incredibly substantial claims to be making about Iranian funding and need much, much more rigorous research and citations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:14D:8200:9E77:9D94:3685:E4A9:5D8B (talk) 00:18, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

I removed ref 140 and uncited information, and updated with more recent coverage. Icewhiz (talk) 11:23, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Hezbollah - Israel tensions[edit]

Shouldn't a separate article on this issue be made? --RazorTheDJ (talk) 18:13, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

Probably, I added Iran–Israel proxy conflict as a main since that's where you end up if you go Hez-Is conflict.Selfstudier (talk) 13:04, 21 October 2019 (UTC)
See 2019 Beirut drone crash. Perhaps it can be renamed/extended, or at least it should link to the new article you're proposing. WarKosign 07:48, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Category Antisemitism[edit]

Per Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2011_February_9#Bias_categories: "Consensus for a unified approach to these categories; most support to ban individuals & organisations. This has been a lengthy discussion but both the general trend and the BLP policy incline against the inclusion of individuals and organisations." This is why Category:Antisemitic organizations was removed here we should not include the category here.--SharabSalam (talk) 10:33, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Categories exist for a reason. Category:Antisemitism in the Arab world exists to be applied on relevant articles. Otherwise, what's the point in having a category that can't be applied to any article ? The article describes Hezbollah's ideology as antisemitic, quoting multiple reliable sources, so it is a great example for an article dealing with the subject of the category, therefore the category is perfectly applicable. WarKosign 12:08, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
WarKosign, The category should be used in individuals and organisations articles. There are lots of articles where the category can be applied like Antisemitism in the Arab world or maybe the article about the ideology of Hezbullah or the conspiracy theories in the Arab world that are identified as antisemitism.-SharabSalam (talk) 13:09, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
@SharabSalam: you are quoting some 8 years old discussion that was either overthrown since or never implemented in the first place. Current common practice is to put relevant category on organization articles. For example, Ku Klux Klan has many racism-related categories. If the recommendation you are quoting was in force, KKK article wouldn't be in any "bias" category. WarKosign 14:01, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
WarKosign, I dont know what changed since 8 years. This is totally irrelevant argument. What has changed since 8 years? And for the KKK thats other stuff exist argument.--SharabSalam (talk) 18:15, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
As WarKosign said, "Current common practice is to put relevant category on organization articles." This is totally relevant. --GHcool (talk) 20:25, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Germany Designation of Hezbollah Terrorism[edit]

The Main page source is wrong. Footnote 45: refers to Germany's Free Democratic Party designating Hezbollah a terrorist org not the Government of Germany right now. They have 80 seats and are not within any sort of Government colation and are in the opp.

The German government has not done that source below — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cats4life666 (talkcontribs) 17:42, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
