Jewish Leaders Applaud Honduras for Designating Hezbollah as Terrorist Organization

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 thank Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández and his government for taking a strong stance against terrorism by designating Hezbollah as a terrorist organization this week.

Honduras joins its neighbor Guatemala and many other countries around the world in rightfully recognizing Hezbollah as a purveyor of violence and death, which must be given no quarter in any country which opposes terrorism.

In the coming days we hope to see more countries follow this resolute and commendable action taken by President Hernández.”
