Launch of Transatlantic Declaration: The EU Must Ban Hezbollah
AJC’s Transatlantic Institute and the Transatlantic Friends of Israel (TFI), an inter-parliamentary group in the European Parliament with the goal of strengthening the trilateral partnership between the U.S., Israel, and Europe, launched an unprecedented transatlantic declaration that unites lawmakers from North America, Israel, and Europe in their rejection of Europe’s fictional distinction between Hezbollah’s so-called military and political arms.
On the eve of the anniversaries of Hezbollah’s deadly bomb attacks in Argentina (1994) and Bulgaria (2012), over 240 legislators urged the European Union to list Hezbollah in its entirety as a terrorist organization.
In this webinar, AJC Transatlantic Institute Director Daniel Schwammenthal, TFI Chair MEP Lukas Mandl (Austria), and TFI Vice Chair MEP Dietmar Köster (Germany) will discuss this important declaration followed by a conversation with the Washington Institute’s Matthew Levitt highlighting his latest research on the Iranian proxy’s global terror activities. AJC CEO David Harris will deliver concluding remarks.
