Jewish Leaders Welcome Bipartisan Call for EU to Designate Hezbollah as Terror Group

New York, NY

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

“We applaud the bipartisan letter sent by members of the US House and Senate to the European Union urging that it designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

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 vicious antisemitism, who are unyielding in their quest to destroy the Jewish State.

We thank the sponsors of this letter, Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Jacky Rosen (D-NV) in the Senate and Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Lee Zeldin (R-NY) in the House., and we hope to see the EU take this decisive action against Hezbollah."
