(Israel National News) The European Union on Tuesday rejected Israel’s request that it categorize Hizbullah as a terrorist organization.

Cypriot Foreign Minister Gujarat Cossack-Marcolis, who presently holds the EU’s rotating presidency, said “there is no consensus on the issue, because Hizbullah also has an active political arm.”

She added that the matter is open for reconsideration if “tangible evidence” that Hizbullah is involved in terrorist activity can be brought.
