Jerusalem Post: “‘Another blow to Iran’: EU votes in favor of resolution against Islamic Republic”

In an unprecedented vote, the European Parliament passed a resolution against the Islamic Republic of Iran on Thursday.

The resolution condemned Iran for its attack on Israel and reinforced the European commitment to the security of the State of Israel.

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz praised the European Parliament for its vote in favor of a resolution. It follows last Monday’s decision by the European Union to sanction Iran in order to curtail missile and drone production.

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) welcomed the decision of the European Parliament. “The centrality of Iran in the destabilization of the whole of the Middle East is evident to all, and we welcome the Parliament’s resolution noting this fact. The time has come for the total exclusion of the Islamic Republic from the international arena and targeted sanctions,” EJC President Ariel Muzicant said. 

“Iran’s threat is not only towards Israel and the entire Middle East but also to all Western democracies,” Muzicant concluded.
