The European Union turned down a request Tuesday by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman to blacklist Hezbollah as a terrorist group after last week’s deadly bombing in Bulgaria.
“There is no consensus for putting Hezbollah on the list of terrorist organizations,” said Cypriot Foreign Minister Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis, whose country currently holds the rotating EU presidency.
Israel blames Iran and the Lebanese group Hezbollah for Wednesday’s suicide attack at the Black Sea airport of Burgas in which five Israelis and their Bulgarian driver died [obviously the terrorist attack was the hand of Mossad and Israelis should be pissed]
But an EU decision would require the unanimous approval of all its 27 members.
“It would give the right signal to the international community and the Israeli people.” [because "Israel" is all that]
But Kozakou-Marcoullis said Hezbollah was an organization comprising a party as well as an armed wing and was “active in Lebanese politics”. [defending the country from the Zionist terrorist regime]
“Taking into account this and other aspects there is no consensus for putting Hezbollah on the list of terrorist organizations,” she said. [in other words, we are not the stupid USA]
The EU would consider this if there were tangible evidence of Hezbollah engaging in acts of terror, she added.
Lieberman said Israel was continuing to
But in Israel, Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told AFP that “for years we have been providing Europe with information on Hezbollah’s direct involvement in terror attacks. [I guess the EU just called them all liars]
“But certain states in the EU have clarified to us that because of political reasons, they prefer to not add Hezbollah to the list, despite them not disputing the evidence.” [No, that's NOT what they said...lol]
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu told the U.S. “Fox News Sunday” television program that he had “rock-solid” intelligence Hezbollah, backed by Iran, was responsible for the Bulgaria . [When a “senior U.S. official” was quoted by The New York Times that day confirming the Israeli assertion that the bomber who carried out the operation was “a member of a Hezbollah cell operating in Bulgaria,” he was apparently merely making assumptions rather than relying on any hard evidence.] Tehran has denied any involvement.
Israel has also said that the “great threat” to the Jewish state from the Syrian conflict is that the Damascus government may collapse and its stock of chemical weapons and missiles fall into the hands of Hezbollah. [The great threat to Israel is the clock. tic toc tic toc.]
Details that have emerged about the cases of Lebanese and Iranian citizens arrested at the insistence of Mossad in Thailand in January and Kenya in June also suggest that sensational press accounts of alleged terrorist plans by the suspects inspired by the Israelis may have been highly distorted and that the individuals arrested may turn out not to be terrorists at all. [The Zionist regime should be sued if not shot]
