"From the terrorism of Hamas and Hezbollah to the instability in the region, the dangers that confront Israel remain considerable. I am clear: Israel has the right to defend itself. We must do everything we can to ensure its citizens feel safe and secure in their own country."

− Prime Minister Theresa May, September 2016

"I can promise you that I will never share a platform with Hezbollah. I can promise you that I will never describe anybody who launches indiscriminate rocket attacks against civilian populations as my friends."

− Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rt. Hon. Philip Hammond MP, October 2015

"Hezbollah’s extensive arsenal contravenes UN Security Council resolutions 1559 and 1701, which call on it to disarm, yet the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon has not stopped the re-arming of Hezbollah and rarely inspects Hezbollah-controlled villages for illicit activity. Given that every Israeli city is now within range of the rockets, will the Minister use his good offices in the UN to ensure that the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon has the resources it needs to police southern Lebanon effectively?"

− Philip Hollobone MP, December 2014
