The European Court Is A Laughing Stock!

European CourtsDo you  consider Hamas as not being a terrorist organization? Although from time to time some crazy things have come out of the European High Court, I would never have believed that people from the highest law court in Europe could be so blind, and so stupid! I refer to their decision that the Palestinian group Hamas should no longer be referred to as a terrorist organization.

Hamas has been behind all the bloodshed in the fighting with Israel for decades, and is responsible for killing thousands of their own people because they cannot accept the existence of Israel as a state. The Hamas leaders have stated openly many times that they will never accept the state of Israel, and will continue to fight until it is destroyed.

Recently, for the third successive time over the last ten years, they began firing rockets onto Israeli towns and villages without warning, and naturally Israel responded.

Wouldn’t you want to retaliate if someone started raining rockets down on you and yours? Only a fool would stand idly by and do nothing.

As we now all know, Hamas fired their rockets from the middle of housing areas and next to schools and hospitals, with the express purpose of causing as many civilian casualties as possible. Naturally they sought to blame the Israeli Army and Air Force for all the deaths, but anyone with an ounce of intelligence saw through the lies. I know I certainly did, and reported on it.

It is a sad fact that very many people blamed the Israeli’s for the deaths which led to mass demonstrations across the western world. A sad indication of how short-sighted many people are these days. It also shows the power of the biased Press, for nothing sells newspapers quicker than scenes of dead and dying people, especially women and children!

It does not matter who you personally hold responsible, the fact is the whole episode was started by Hamas who, unprovoked, fired the first rockets into Israel, and not for the first time. It only ended, as usual, when they ran out of rockets.

To any intelligent person, there can be no-one else to blame for all the deaths in Palestine but Hamas. After each spat with Israel over the years Gaza has received billions of dollars in Aid to rebuild their infrastructure and houses, but the funny thing is (or maybe not) all the Hamas leadership have become billionaires and millionaires! Now how do you explain that?

During this last spat dozens of highly sophisticated concrete-lined Hamas tunnels were found which American experts estimated cost €1 million each to build. Now I wonder where all the money for them came from? From the facts, it would seem that of the billions in aid sent to Gaza over the past fifteen years or so, not much of it went to the people.

In the 2006 legislative elections, the Palestinian people overwhelmingly voted Hamas into power to counter rampant financial corruption in the Gaza Authority.

Since that time, it may interest you to know that Hamas now has around 1,700 millionaires and several billionaires? I am sure many will perhaps dispute this, but Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction went on the offensive recently claiming that Hamas in Gaza is corrupt and “doesn’t represent the Palestinian people.” The Fatah spokesman claimed that while Gaza is one of the poorest places in the world, there are 1,700 millionaires among Hamas members.

The leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashal is worth an estimated €2.6 billion all of which has come from exorbitantly taxing the Palestinians, Aid money, and the one essential element – the continued blockade of Gaza by the Israeli’s. All goods smuggled into Gaza through the myriad of tunnels in Rafah are heavily taxed by Hamas.

The leaders of Hamas live in absolute luxury, have private jets and stay at the finest hotels when they go anywhere, which is often. So it is clear to see that in this case at least, being a terrorist has paid off handsomely.

While the leaders of Hamas have been getting rich the people of Gaza have been killed, had their houses and possessions blown away, and live in abject poverty. All this to make a terrorist organization rich. Not much justice there.

The Hamas Creed. See What I mean!

And now after years of orchestrating a reign of terror in Gaza, the European Court wants them taken off the terror list! I fail to see what such a decision will achieve, other than to legitimize their terrorist activities and give them free reign to continue their drastic actions and cause even more suffering for the Gaza people.

It is true that many, and in particular European politicians, were dismayed by the ruling, for it is clear that Hamas is a terrorist organization and must be removed before any form of peace can be achieved within the Middle East. Their staunch refusal to accept the existence of Israel as a state is the one major stumbling block to achieving this.
