    Default Hezbollah linked to bus bombing in Bulgaria say Bulgarian officials.

    So Bulgarian officials have now linked Hezbollah to the suicide bombing that killed five Israelis and a driver in Bulgaria. What action will need to be taken against Hezbollah and how can planners of this murder be brought to justice?. Was anybody really surprised it was Hezbollah as they have previous form for this.

    BBC News - Hezbollah linked to Burgas bus bombing in Bulgaria

    A bus bombing that killed five Israelis and a driver in Bulgaria was most likely the work of Lebanon's Hezbollah militants, Bulgarian officials say.

    The attack, in the Black Sea resort of Burgas in July 2012, was carried out by a bomber who died at the scene.

    A six-month probe uncovered "obvious links" to Lebanon and Hezbollah, prompting criticism from Israel's prime minister and a top US official.

    Iran has steadfastly denied any involvement, while Hezbollah has made no comment.

    Bulgaria has accused the Lebanese militant movement Hezbollah of carrying out a bomb attack on a bus in the Black Sea city of Burgas that killed five Israeli tourists last July.

    The conclusions of the Bulgarian investigation, citing a clear connection to an attack on European Union soil, may open the way for the EU to join the United States in branding the Iranian-backed Hezbollah a terrorist organisation.

    Three people were involved in the attack, two of whom had genuine passports from Australia and Canada, the Bulgarian interior minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, told reporters after Sofia's national security council discussed the investigation.

    "There is data showing the financing and connection between Hezbollah and the two suspects," Tsvetanov said.

    "What can be established as a well-grounded assumption is that the two persons whose real identity has been determined belonged to the military wing of Hezbollah."
    In August 2012 Hamas MP and Deputy Speaker Ahmad Bahr appeared on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV and demanded all Muslims to annihilate the Jews.

    Well, if the EU were to list them as a terrorist group, that would be a nice start. Even the Egyptians do that.

    It's an attack on EU soil and thus it should be responded to as such. Provided Hezbollah has a case to answer and there is proof of their involvement it is the incumbent on all EU countries to treat this as they would an attack on the own soil and that the sternest action possible be taken.

    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

    Yes. Watched your link. Twice.
    Um....where's the evidence again?
    Even in your link in the BBC it states "most likely Hezbollah".

    OP decoded

    Islamic extremists are invading Europe - let's drop our neutrality - introduce internment for all dark skinned people who might just be Islamic fundamentalists.

    Seems the "evidence" is that the bombers lived in Lebanon for a while.
    But we also know there are a plethora of terrorist groups in Lebanon, including Al Qaeda linked groups like Jabhat Al Nusra, and Islamic Jihad (who aren't exactly jew-friendly).
    Two groups in fact who the O.P writer has been defending in the Syria threads.
    Ironic?

    And we've got one.

    As for evidence

    the Bulgarian interior minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, told reporters after Sofia's national security council discussed the investigation.

    "There is data showing the financing and connection between Hezbollah and the two suspects," Tsvetanov said.
