Statement From Agudath Israel of America —

The recent ruling of a European Union court to remove Hamas from the EU’s terrorist list is nothing short of astounding.

The ruling, even if on procedural grounds, sends an outrageous message to the world – and an encouraging one to Hamas, which has understandably received it joyfully.

That the categorization of an “organization” pledged to the destruction of a sovereign state and the murder of its citizens can in any way be in question is ludicrous.  It would seem that Islamic terror attacks in Europe have yielded the cowardly response hoped for by their perpetrators.
