Asylum seekers with terror links may be rejected, says Europe’s top court

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) on Tuesday ruled that EU nations may reject asylum seekers who have participated in a terrorist group’s activities, even if they did not commit an attack or provide financial support.

The court’s ruling is a response to the case of Moroccan national Mostafa Lounani, who applied for asylum in Belgium on the basis that his country of origin considered him a “radical Islamist and jihadist.”

Belgian authorities denied his request for asylum, citing a 2006 conviction for “active participation in the organization of a network for sending volunteers to Iraq.”

I dunno… sounds like a Muslim ban to me!
