is hezbollah a terrorist organization

is hezbollah a terrorist organization. i found some information about this discussion in the internet:

The United States, Canada and Israel consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization, claiming that the organization initiates attacks against civilians and ideologically supports such attacks by other similar organizations.

The United Kingdom, Australia and the Netherlands officially list only the External Security Organization of Hezbollah (ESO) as a proscribed organisation.[24][25][26]

The European Union does not list Hezbollah as a 'terrorist organization',[27] but does list Imad Mugniyah,[28] who is widely believed to be heading the international branch of the Hezbollah.[citation needed]

Russia does not list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization[29], but it does list other radical Islamic Shi'a groups, such as Islamic Jihad which has assimilated into the organization,[30] as well as al-Qaeda which is believed to be linked with Hezbollah.[31]
