Hezbollah Belongs on EU Terror List

The full text of this week's commentary follows:

Bravo, Bulgaria.

Here’s a country that showed real courage and determination.

Last year, in a terrorist attack at a Bulgarian resort, six people were killed.

The Bulgarians launched a six-month investigation.

During the process, there were those who said that Bulgaria would be better off lying low.

But, to its great credit, Bulgaria ignored the voices of fear and intimidation, and went ahead.

They've now announced the deadly attack was the work of Hezbollah. What’s the next step?

The European Union should add Hezbollah to its terrorism list, just as the United States, Canada and others have.

After all, this is the latest of many deadly assaults by Hezbollah in South America, Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere.

And not a day goes by that Hezbollah isn’t involved in helping the murderous Syrian regime kill even more people.

Join us in calling on the EU to add Hezbollah to its terrorism list.

Go to ajc.org. That's ajc.org.

This is David Harris of AJC.
