Hamas removed from EU

terrorist list on technicality
European Union General Court annuls decision to keep Hamas on list of terrorist organizations, but temporarily maintained measures against it for three months or until an appeal was closed.

The European Union’s second highest court annulled on Wednesday the bloc’s decision to keep Hamas on a list of terrorist organizations, but temporarily maintained the measures for a period of three months or until an appeal was closed.

The General Court of the European Union said the contested measures were not based on an examination of Hamas’s “acts examined and confirmed in decisions of competent authorities” but on imputations derived from the media and the Internet.

The court insisted that its ruling was based on procedure and did not “imply any substantive assessment of the question of the classification of Hamas as a terrorist group.” It therefore ruled that the asset freezes should stay in place for three months, pending further EU actions, in order to ensure that any possible future freezing of funds would be effective.

The court’s decision followed an appeal filed by Hamas against its inclusion in the European Union’s blacklist.

Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq welcomed the decision. “This is the correction of an error and an injustice that was caused to Hamas,

which is a national liberation movement.”

The lawyer for Hamas, Liliane Glock, told AFP she was “satisfied with the decision.”

Although Hamas is expected to present the decision as a victory, Israel and the EU say that the change will not have an effect on the group’s position as a terror group in Europe as the court will be given a few months to rebuild the file against Hamas with evidence that will enable the Gaza-based group to remain on the list of terror organizations.

Hamas’s military wing was added to the European Union’s first-ever terrorism blacklist drawn up in December 2001 in the wake of the September 11 attacks on the United States.

Hamas’s political wing was added to the EU’s list of terror organizations in 2003 after a diplomatic effort led by Israel and the US.

A few months ago, the Court of Justice made a decision to remove the Tamil Tigers, a Sri Lankan terror group, from the EU’s terrorist list because of similar reasoning. The court concluded that the file did not have sufficient legal evidence proving the group was a terror organization. However, as is expected in the case of Hamas, the court gave the EU a window of time to re-submit its request and build a stronger legal file against the Sri Lankan group.

Hamas, aware of the case of the Sri Lankan group, saw an opportunity to remove itself from the EU’s terror list which prevents all European nations from contacting the organization. Hamas appealed to the court on the same grounds as the Sri Lankan group.

According to reports from within Israel, some European countries, fearing the possiblity that Hamas would be taken of the EU’s terror list, have already begun collecting intelligence information that could be useful in building a strong case against the group.

Israel, on its part, has a department dedicated to the issue within the Foreign Ministry and has already been collecting incriminating evidence against terror organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

The weakness of the current case against Hamas, and against the Tamil Tigers, was said to be due to the nature of the European process for declaring entities as terror organizations. In the European system, the list must be reviewed every six months which resulted in the Europeans using unclassified material and media publications to rebuild the files, which were then automatically approved.

The Europeans feared presenting classified intelligence material to the court, with the apprehension that the information would ultimately end up in the hands of Hamas and aid the terror group. Therefore, the Europeans relied on low-level material to build the file against Hamas. The EU now realizes that it will have to introduce more solid evidence.

Another reason for the court to have accepted the appeal by Hamas to take themselves off the EU’s terror list could be the court’s attempt to strengthen its stance within the EU – not fearing confrontation with European countries.

    Hmmm

    Actually Israel’s motto has been kill a Palestinian steal his lands take his home. Looked at objectively even the most conservative estimates puts the number of Palestinians killed by Jewish terrorists pre ’48 and Israel proper since 48 at 3/4 of a Million. And in that same time frame well over 2 Million Palestinians have become refuges. On the other hand the number of Jews killed pre ’48 and Israel’s post ’48 at the hands of Palestinians numbers in the thousands. And number of Israeli “refugees”
    at the hands of Palestinians is essentially ZERO

    The FACTS PROVE THE ISRAELIS LIARS, CRIMINALS AND THEIVES. THAT FACTS PROVE ISRAEL COMMITS WAR CRIMES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND GENOCIDE.

    This website showing the cartoon depicted above is in my opinion aiding and abetting a terrorist state -ISRAEL.

    About Time.
    Not a second to late and let the recognition of bravery go to those in the system that deserves it, and then this result, witch is a logical stepp.

    Hamas, is by all means, even by international standards, legale gov, of the territory known of Palestina, Gaza.
    Hell on earth.

    Wake up, Israel, as sayed many times before, its in the end You.
    You created it, You can solve it, with dignity and avoid the humiliating downward spiral sett in motion decades ago, be zionism and their “frends of israel” whom in the end ruined the land in all ways, incl the economy, and have single handed dragged the notion of Jews down the drain.
    Action, Israelis, tell more that meer words, and words, is what we have gotten, while actions tells something else, even this is unwinding, with an breathtaking speed.

    WE ALL; have been fooled, by whom, we all know.
    Time Israel, to take a stand, never ending wars or peace.
    And YOU all can be historic, be the change.

    peace

    ISRAEL is an ever bleeding & festering sore in the side of Rothschild / US / UK / Germany / France & anyone else who invested in their existence & capacity to achieve MIRACLES of stupendous abundance.
    They should have achieved many things by now —
    ALAS they have not …
    … & the OIL of the Middle East is all but gone.
    In other words the party is over & they haven’t served the main course yet ..
    In the papers today – the United Kingdom is about to shut down its oil production & lay off the workers.
    BRITAIN’S ECONOMY IS ALMOST DEAD by the look of things.
    The sounds that we are hearing are the tide of confidence of the oligarchy of the world / the power brokers AGAINST they very existence of ISRAEL.
    Like the house of cards that Israel is watch it fall.
