Support for Hezbollah in NZ


Shadow Attorney-General Chris Finlayson is appalled at the open support for the terrorist organisation Hezbollah at a protest in Auckland.

“A protest in Aotea Square on Friday was carried out by members of the Islamic Ahlulbayt Foundation of New Zealand. This is the same group that posted a video on Youtube in which an Iranian official denied the Holocaust and in which others were shown calling for the destruction of Israel.

“Hezbollah is synonymous with extremism, misery and and it is troubling to see support for such an organisation being openly expressed here in New Zealand.

“This protest amounts to support of a terrorist organisation and must be condemned by all. No citizen of New Zealand should be associated with Hezbollah.

Were any MPs at the protest I wonder?

Hezbollah has been designated by the NZ Government as a a terrorist entity. The reasons for their designation are an interesting read.
