European Jewish Press: Jewish group disappointed that EU not moving forward on blacklisting Hezbollah
by Yossi Lempkowicz
B’nai B’rith International said it is "disappointed" to learn the European Union will not yet designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization in the wake of the Bulgarian government’s findings that the group was behind the attack that killed six people, five Israeli tourists and one Bulgarian in Burgas in July 2012.
In a press conference Thursday with visiting Israeli President Shimon Peres, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barros said the EU will consider imposing sanctions on Hezbollah but does not yet have sufficient evidence of its activities in Europe to make a decision.
Barroso said Bulgaria was still finalizing its investigation into the Burgas bus bombing and had asked the Lebanese government for help...more.
