    France, America's political enemy, has rejected US and Israeli calls to name Hezbollah a terrorist organization. Not sure if Hezbollah is a terrorist organization? Read this: http://www.usmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17904. The moral depravity of a French foreign policy that refuses to name Hezbollah a terrorist organization is staggering. France's refusal to list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization allows the group to continue to solicit terror and murder financing in France. Is not France's behavior a "clear and present danger" to the national security of the United States?

    How much inducement can Europe give? Granted the PA has confiscated most of it, but how much can Europe afford? Don't they have others that need aid, make that inducements?

    From the article:
    It is not surprising that EU funds sent to the PA were diverted to terrorists.

    Canada banned the organization from raising funds here and froze all their assests (although I don't know what happened to frozen assets). Presently, there isn't an outright ban on all Hezbollah activities because our government agrees that it would hinder the work of many well intended doctors, lawyers and social workers in Lebanon.

    Well, then let's declare france a supporter of terrorism and put an embargo on everything they ship to this country. Refuse to allow any airline flying french planes to land in the US. Prohibit any travel from france to the US and vice-versa. Close our embassy. Freeze all french assets in the US.

    Reckon that would get the bastards' attention?

    Oh, I met an "attorney" from Canada on a flight from Singapore to San Fran once and he told me in Canada Lawyers are called "Barristers" and paralegals were called "Solicitors". Maybe my memory is failing me.
