WASHINGTON – US Senator Joe Lieberman is expected to introduce a resolution in the coming days that would urge the European Union to label Hezbollah a terrorist organization.

The draft resolution by the Connecticut Independent, who is retiring at the end of the year, calls on European countries as well as the EU to designate Hezbollah and on the Obama administration to provide information about Hezbollah to its European allies.

The measure also supports the Bulgarian government in its investigation of the July 18 terrorist attack there where several Israeli tourists were killed, believed to have been perpetrated by the Lebanese group.

The resolution, which about half of the members of the Senate have already signed onto, also mentions Hezbollah’s role in the terror attacks on the Israeli embassy in Argentina in 1992 and a Jewish center in Buenos Aires in 1994 and its activities in Syria as it defends Bashar Assad’s brutal regime.
