60 European Parliament Members Call to Classify Hizbullah as Terrorist Entity

(Jerusalem Post) Benjamin Weinthal - 60 members of the EU parliament sent a letter on Thursday to EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, urging her to classify all of Hizbullah as a terrorist entity. MEP Anders Vistisen (Denmark) said: "It's outrageous that the European Union still has not denounced Hizbullah in its entirety as a terrorist organization. Hizbullah's growing arsenal and entanglement in regional conflicts severely destabilizes certain countries and the wider Middle East. It is high time to acknowledge that Islamist-inspired terrorism is not only a threat to the Middle East, but is also the top threat to Europe's security." MEP Lars Adaktusson (Sweden) said: "In order to stop Hizbullah's extensive terrorist activities, the EU approach has to change. Hizbullah is one united organization, and the EU policy cannot be based on a pretend division of this terrorist organization into a civilian and a military wing."
