And surely the pertinent point here is that we only dealt with Sinn Fein in a serious way, precisely because its other wing, the IRA, had stopped violence and appeared to be on the way to decommissioning its weapons.

Hezbollah has done no such thing. Far from it. Its appetite for overseas terror has got stronger now that the Arab Spring, in its neighbourhood, has turned into a major struggle between the Sunni V Shi’ite brands of Islam. Hezbollah is Shi’ite, as is Iran, and as is the minority Assad regime, which is holding out against a popular uprising by its Sunni majority, and which has been blatantly supported by Hezbollah.
