Top EU Court to Decide Whether Mass-Murdering Hamas is a Terror Group
Since Hamas only mass-murders Jews and Israelis, the EU Nazis don’t want to label them as the jihadist terrorists they are.
The European Court of “Justice” is due to decide on Wednesday whether to keep Hamas listed as a terror organization.
The listing is important because it keeps various Hamas funds frozen, limits Hamas from openly doing business in the EU and limits the mobility of Hamas-affiliated persons.
Although the US lists Hamas as a terror organization, the idea of the EU listing Hamas as a terror group has already received two major blows in recent years.
In 2014, an intermediate EU court ordered the EU’s executive branch to remove Hamas from its list of terror groups.
The EU, which is on record as wanting to continue to list Hamas as a terror group, appealed that ruling to its top court, the European Court of Justice.
In September 2016, the advocate-general of the European Court of Justice, whose advice is usually followed by the judges, recommended that the court uphold the lower court ruling and remove Hamas from being listed as a terror group.
Both decisions received rebukes from Israel, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasting the lower EU court ruling as “staggering” and “hypocrisy,” while the Foreign Ministry had said it expected the EU to fix the situation.
In the 2016 recommendation, Advocate-General Eleanor Sharpston said that the EU governments should independently present evidence on attacks perpetrated by the groups, and that information from outside countries such as the US was not sufficient.
