Israel to EU: Hezbollah exists to commit terror

UNITED NATIONS - At a UN Security Council discussion on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, Israel's ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor on Tuesday renewed his call for Hezbollah to be designated a terrorist organization by the European Union, as it has been categorized by the United States.
"Make no mistake: Hezbollah's sole purpose is to commit terrorist acts both inside and outside the Middle East," said Prosor. "Calling Hezbollah a charity is like calling al Qaida an urban-planning organization because of its desire to level tall buildings."
The charge came just days after Bulgarian authorities identified Hezbollah as the perpetrator of a terrorist attack in Burgas in July of last year, which killed seven people and injured 32.
