Egypt court lists Hamas as terrorist organization

An Egyptian court has declared Palestinian movement Hamas a “terrorist” organization, according to a judicial source. The decision comes one month after Cairo added the group’s military wing to its terror blacklist.

The Cairo court’s ruling on Saturday was in response to a lawsuit alleging that Hamas was involved in recent attacks on Egyptian soil.

“The court ruled that Hamas should be included as a terrorist organisation,” said Samir Sabry, one of the lawyers who brought the case the group.

In January, the same court declared the Islamist group’s military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, a terrorist organization.

    And of course Egypt is on Muhammad Obama’s hate list, so Russia has been courting Egypt big time with weapons and other aid. So instead of working with Egypt to combat terrorists, the Russians have stepped in further weakening Western influence. Great plan Obama.
