Hamas Gets Their Panties in a Knot Over Australia’s Designation of Hizbullah as a Terror Organization

Day of rage, anyone?

A day after Australia designated Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, Hamas condemned the move, saying it viewed “the decision as a surrender to the will of Zionism and a response to the pressure of the enemy entity.”

On Wednesday, Australia joined 16 other countries that have outlawed Hezbollah in the last two years. The designation covers the Iranian-backed Shiite terrorist group as a whole, expanding the ban placed on its military wing in 2003.

According to Australian Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews, any affiliation with Hezbollah or providing funding for it will be illegal and punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Oh boy, are they in for a nasty surprise.
