Europe’s “Good Terrorists”: Because They Might Destroy Israel?

Once again, the Europeans seem to be in Alice’s Wonderland when they consider Palestinian affairs in particular and the Middle East in general. The renewed attempt by the European Union to remove the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas from its terrorism list is a case in point.

Recently, an advisor to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) recommended that Hamas be removed from the EU’s terrorism blacklist. In 2014, the EU’s second-highest court ruled that Hamas should be taken off the list on “technical” grounds. It argued that Hamas’s listing was not based on evidence, but on “factual imputations derived from the press and the internet.”

However, the European Council then appealed this judgement, arguing that Hamas should remain on the terrorism blacklist, citing a 2001 decision by the UK and the US that designated both Hamas and the Tamil Tigers as terrorist groups. But the recent opinion by the ECJ advisor dismisses this argument. “The council cannot rely on facts and evidence found in press articles and information from the internet,” Advocate General Eleanor Sharpton said. She explained that the council could not rely on terrorist listings by countries (the UK and US) outside the EU.

This latest highly dangerous European attempt to strike Hamas from the terrorism blacklist will, as the EU knows perfectly well, only serve further to embolden the Islamist movement to replace Israel with an Islamic empire.

    The EU might be an ‘Islamic empire’ before Israel.

    • I would not be surprised.

    • Bernie

      Israel will never be an Islamic Empire

        If they don’t clear out Gaza, they will be.

  • Hard Little Machine

    No no this is a GOOD thing. Send every single terrorist in prison to the EU.

  • Maybe it is time to turn one’s back and let Israel do what it must to its enemies.

    • FactsWillOut

      I wholeheartedly agree, except I’d really, really like to watch!

      • Then I would suggest you watch from Brazil.

        Things might get hairy.

          A few well placed tactical nukes. It’s an afternoon’s work, if that.

        they dont have to and they are not ofimportance when it coms on jews

    This will only backfire on the Fourth Reich — er, EU — since Israel is now strong enough to stand up to it. Trump makes no secret of his plan to deal with them on a one member by one member basis and Netanyahu is likely to follow suit.

    Brexit has happened already? I hadn’t noticed.
