US lawmakers are stepping up pressure on the European Union to declare the Lebanese militant group Hizbullah a terrorist organization. A House of Representatives' panel is to highlight Wednesday the importance of Europe as a fundraising base for the group, long held responsible by the United States for anti-US and anti-Israeli attacks. Some European countries have resisted an EU designation of Hizbullah as a terrorist organization, arguing that it is better to engage the group given its large role in Lebanese politics. European officials have argued that changing policy on Hizbullah could affect the political balance in Lebanon and further destabilize the country.
