Another stunning intervention on international affairs from the European Union. The second highest court in Europe has today decreed that Palestinian terrorist organisation Hamas be removed from the EU’s official terror blacklist, claiming the description of the group as terrorists is “based on conclusions derived from the media and internet, not sound legal rulings”. Just three days ago, masked Hamas gunmen marched through the streets of Gaza parading vehicle-mounted rockets supplied by Iran and burning effigies of Jews. Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq has praised the EU, saying: “This is the correction of an error and an injustice that was caused to Hamas“. Slow clap.
