Conference of Presidents Welcomes Bundestag Resolution Calling for Ban of Hezbollah in Germany, Urges Government to Act

New York, NY

. . . Arthur Stark, Chairman, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

“We commend the Bundestag for voting overwhelmingly in favor of a measure requesting that the German government institute a ban on the terrorist organization Hezbollah within Germany. We urge the government to act quickly to follow up.

An Iranian proxy with the blood of countless innocents on its hands, Hezbollah conducts criminal operations in the Middle East, Europe, Latin America, and elsewhere to finance its terror activities around the world. No quarter should be given to these purveyors of murder and Jew-hatred, who are unyielding in their quest to destroy the Jewish State.

We look forward to seeing this implemented and encourage other countries to join Germany in banning Hezbollah.”


The Conference of Presidents is the central coordinating body representing 50 national Jewish organizations on issues of national and international concern
