Hamas has criticised the decision by the Cairo Court for Urgent Matters to refrain from labelling Israel as a “terrorist entity”. The judgement contradicts all of the facts and evidence, said spokesman Husam Badran.
In a written statement, reported Quds Press, Badran said that Israel is the symbol of terrorism in the region, noting that there is no need for evidence or a decision by an Egyptian court to prove this.
“The crimes of the occupation against our people are carried out in front of the media and are witnessed by the whole world,” he said. “Its terrorism against the Arab Republic of Egypt is known, including the killing of Egyptian prisoners in the past, and espionage and sabotage operations at present.”
Badran compared the position taken by the Egyptian court towards Israel and that taken when it declared Hamas to be a “terrorist organisation”. This violates the conscience of the nation and goes against its convictions, he insisted.
The court decided on Monday that it is not within its jurisdiction to consider a lawsuit demanding that Israel be considered a terrorist entity. Tags: #
