Haniyeh Calls on Global Community to Remove Hamas from Terror Lists

On Friday Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh reacted to the UN vote granting observer state status to Palestine.
Haniyeh called for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and a right of return of all Palestinian refugees to Israel.

This weekend Haniyeh called for world countries to remove Hamas from their lists of designated terrorist organizations.
Israel National News reported:

Hamas’s Prime Minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, on Sunday called world countries to take Hamas and other Arab terror groups off their lists of designated terrorist organizations, Channel 10 News reported.

According to the report, Haniyeh accused Israel of being the greatest terrorist state in the world, saying, “It’s time to do it (take Hamas off terrorist organization lists –ed). Hamas, for example, is a national liberation movement that operates within the boundaries of Palestine.”

Haniyeh made the remarks during a meeting with a delegation of Europeans.

“We have no problem with Jews all over the world and we are not against the Jews simply because they are Jews,” he said, adding, “We have a problem with the occupation that controls our lands.”

“Palestine is the only country which is under occupation,” he said, calling for an investigation into what he termed “the crimes of the Israeli leadership,” including the airstrikes in Gaza during the recent Operation Pillar of Defense.
