Chairs of Israel Allies Caucuses in a dozen European countries released a resolution Monday, condemning Iran’s state-sponsored terrorism and calling upon the European Union to take swift action on critical issues related to Iran.
The resolution notes the financial, logistical, and training support provided by the Iranian regime to Hamas and Hezbollah in carrying out attacks on Israel, and urges the government to hold Iran accountable for war crimes through its support for Hamas in the October 7th massacre of Israeli civilians.
Director of Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) Europe Leo van Doesburg said, "It is crucial for Europe to acknowledge Iran’s significant involvement in supporting and equipping Hamas in their destabilization of the Middle East."
Expressing grave concern over Iran's role as a leading state sponsor of terrorism, Israel Allies Caucus chairs emphasized the need for the European Union to re-impose sanctions on Iran in response to its involvement in terrorist activities. The resolution also calls upon the European Union and its allies to immediately sanction and designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.
“Iran’s support of terrorist activities must be stopped at all costs, or the safety and security of innocent civilians worldwide is at risk,” shared Israel Allies Foundation President Josh Reinstein. “Iran’s terror proxies operate not only in Gaza, but across the Middle East, with a shocking show of support from radical Islamic groups in countries across the globe.”
European Israel Allies Caucuses operate under the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF), an umbrella organization that coordinates the work of 53 pro-Israel caucuses worldwide in order to mobilize political support for Israel based on shared Judeo-Christian values.
Signed by Members of Parliament from 19 European countries, the draft resolution reiterated the European Union's strong stance against the development of nuclear weapons by the Islamic Republic of Iran, stressing that Iran must adhere to its international obligations and commitments regarding nuclear non-proliferation.
