The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution Wednesday, January 2 urging the European Union and its member states to designate Hizballah a terrorist organization and impose sanctions on the group, JTA reported. The bipartisan resolution, which passed Wednesday, would prevent Hizballah from using E.U. territories for fundraising, recruitment, training and propaganda. Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) authored the resolution, which was co-sponsored by 85 representatives. “Once called the ‘A Team of terrorists’ by a senior State Department official, Hizballah has a well-documented and undeniable record of terrorist activity that demands recognition by the international community,” Kelly said on the House floor. The United States has designated the Lebanon-based Hizballah as a terrorist organization since the late 1990s.
