EU's Top Court Rules That Hamas is a Terrorist Organization

EU's Top Court Rules That Hamas is a Terrorist Organization

The European Court of Justice ruling, which was made on Wednesday after an appeal by the EU, overturns a 2014 recommendation from a lower European Court that said Hamas should be removed from the blacklist and sanctions upon the group lifted. "The burden of proof is upon the European Union, and we expect them to immediately put Hamas back on the list, as anyone understand that it is an inseparable part of it", he said at the time.

"Hamas is obliged to join a battle of defending our people's rights against the Zionist defamation (Israel) and those who support it", the statement added.

Hamas is also considered a terrorist organisation by the UAE, the U.S. and Israel. "The Court of Justice therefore confirms the annulment of the continued freezing of the LTTE's funds", it said. In the meantime, Hamas will remain blacklisted by the EU.

"This judgement is therefore likely to have only a very marginal impact as global organisations have been operating on the basis that Hamas is a designated entity already". The European Jewish Congress (EJC) commented that the ruling was "an important political message in the fight against global terror".
