U.S. Congressmen Support Bulgarian Report on Hizbullah Responsibility for Burgas Bombing

(U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman) Over 100 U.S. Congressmen sent a letter to the Bulgarian government "to express our support for your recent report on the 2012 Burgas bombing....The Bulgarian report demonstrates irrefutable evidence that Hizbullah was responsible for the Burgas bombing. There is now clear imperative for action. Hizbullah's actions in Europe must be met with a response to prevent further attacks in Europe and around the world." "Placing Hizbullah on the terrorist list would be the next logical step, in light of the terrorist attack on European soil. Blocking Hizbullah from fundraising would make it more difficult for Hizbullah to plan, finance and execute terrorist activities in Europe and around the world. We fear that failure to add Hizbullah to the terror list will allow, perhaps even encourage, the terror organization to exploit the lack of unity in the European Union Member States and attempt to launch additional attacks on civilians. Furthermore, if Hizbullah's ability to maintain fundraising networks in Europe remains intact, this threatens to undermine the European Union's significant efforts towards Middle East peace."
