Apparently these masked guys with guns are no longer terrorists in the EU

Apparently the EU have removed Hamas form the terror list.

The EU General Court has ordered that the Palestinian militant group Hamas be removed from the bloc’s terror blacklist. The move comes over four years after Hamas appealed its terror designation before the EU.

The European Union first banned Hamas’ military wing, the Izz a-Din al-Qassam Brigades, in 2002, though the organization’s social and political divisions were not put on the terror list. Following a series of Hamas suicide bombings during the second intifada or uprising in September 2003, the EU extended the ban to include the organization as a whole.

On September 12, 2010, Hamas appealed the ban, largely on procedural grounds. In its complaint, the group cited a lack of due process, specifically, that it had not been properly informed the act was being implemented. It further asserted that as a “legitimately-elected government,” it cannot be labeled as a terrorist organization, saying such a designation flies in the face of “the principle of non-interference in the internal matters of a State.”

The court accepted the organization’s argument, saying that the decision to remove Hamas from the list was not based on an examination of Hamas’ activities, but rather on an examination of the procedures used to institute the 2003 ban in the first place. Barring the closure of an appeal, however, a funding freeze against the group will remain in place for three more months.

That court decision looks pretty stupid with Hamas parading their weapons and terror militants in the streets of Gaza on the very same day. 

Hamas paraded more than 2,000 of its armed fighters, drones and truck-mounted rockets through Gaza today to mark its 27th anniversary in the biggest show of force since the end of the Gaza war this summer.

A ceasefire in August halted 50 days of fighting with Israel in which local health officials said more than 2,100 Palestinians, mainly civilians, were killed – while Israel put the number of its dead at 67 soldiers and six civilians.

And at the parade, a senior Hamas leader reaffirmed the Islamist movement’s founding charter’s pledge to destroy Israel.

Responsible organisations don’t pledge to destroy their neighbours…terrorists do.

They sure are gluttons for punishment. If Hamas put those 2ooo troops across the border of Gaza they’d all be wiped out in a matter of days.

But apparently guys dressed like this, wearing slogans of hate aren’t terrorists according to the dud judges of Europe.

Referring to the movement’s armed wing, Khalil al-Hayya, said: ‘This illusion called Israel will be removed. It will be removed at the hands of the Qassam Brigades.’

In recent years, some Hamas leaders have said they would accept a Palestinian state on land Israel occupied in a 1967 war in return for a long-term truce, but would continue to refuse to recognise its enemy’s right to exist.

Sounds like terrorists to me.

Abu Ubaida, the brigades’ spokesman, added another confrontation with Israel might be inevitable unless the tens of thousands of homes damaged or destroyed in the Gaza Strip in last summer’s conflict are rebuilt soon.

Wearing a mask, he said: ”We will accept no less than the rebuilding of everything that was destroyed by the savage Zionist aggression.’ 

Of course Hamas will never recognise that their tunnels into Israel were offensive operations, and their more than 4000 rockets in 2 months wasn’t aggression either.

They were acts of terror not of a responsible organisation.
