Peres asks EU What Does It Take to Brand Hizbullah ‘Terrorists’

JewishPress Logo

President Shimon Peres called on the European Union Thursday to face the facts and follow the American lead in blacklisting Hizbullah as a terrorist organization.

Speaking at a ceremony on the 93rd anniversary of the death of Zionist pioneer Joseph Trumpeldor, the president cited Hizbullah’s proven involvement in terrorist attacks in Bulgaria, Cyprus and Nigeria.

“A short distance from here a terrible tragedy is unfolding,” he said. “In Syria, the president is shooting his own people, the children of his country. On our border, in Lebanon, Nasrallah, wrapped in a cloak of religiosity, is pushing Lebanon into a bloody war.

“It is time to call Hizbullah what it really is – a murderous terror organization. The United States of America and other countries have already included Hezbollah in its list of terrorist organizations…. The time has come for every country in the world, and especially the European Union, to add Hezbollah to its list of terror organizations.”

  1. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Peres really needs to retire and save himself continued embarassment. Not much has changed in Europe in all these centuries. As long as Hezbollah's main targets are Jews, Europe really doesn't care and would see restricting Hezbollah by declaring them terrorists as an "undue inconvenience."
