|Baffling EU Hesitancy on Hezbollah|
AJC national radio message
February 19, 2013 - New York – The AJC weekly radio messages are broadcast on the CBS radio
network, before The Osgood File. All AJC radio commentaries since 2001
are available at www.ajc.org/radiocommentary.
The full text of this week's commentary follows:
If it walks like a duck
and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck, right?
Not necessarily, it
Iranian-backed terrorist group, has a lot of blood -- American, French, South
American, Arab, Israeli, you name it – on its hands.
Most recently, Bulgaria
pointed the finger at Hezbollah for a deadly attack there last year, only the
most recent against a European target.
But the EU hesitates to
call Hezbollah what it so obviously is -- a terrorist group.
Instead, it waffles,
debates and delays.
Hezbollah is free to recruit and raise funds in a number of European countries.
Fortunately, some EU
nations, including Britain, Bulgaria and Holland, are calling for action, as is
the U.S. But they're still in the minority.
Join us in asking the EU
to list Hezbollah as a terrorist group and sanction it accordingly.
