Europeans tiring of 'Palestinians,' call Hamas a terrorist movement

It seems that the European Union may be tiring of the 'Palestinians' at long last.
Hamas bears full responsibility for the war in Gaza, a top EU official said Monday in the Strip, calling the group "a terrorist movement."

"At this time we have to also recall the overwhelming responsibility of Hamas," Louis Michel, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, told reporters.

"I intentionally say this here - Hamas is a terrorist movement and it has to be denounced as such," Michel said as he visited the town of Jabalya in northern Gaza.

"Public opinion is fed up to see that we are paying over and over again - be it the (European) commission, the member states or the major donors - for infrastructure that will be systematically destroyed," he said.
Maybe this incident in Malmo, Sweden on Sunday helped the European Union to start to "get it" (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
The police let the arabist be very close to our manifestation - only about 20 meters away - which of course led to physcial assaults, verbal threats and a lot of hatful chanting. According to Swedish law, the police cannot allow others to interrupt or interfere with a legal demonstration such as ours. This the police ignored and let the hateful threats and chants increase. It didnt take long until the first stone was thrown by the arabs.

Several police officers approach me and asked me to stop filming. They said that I was “provocing” the others. Funny, apparently they werent provoking us when the were filming (which they were), apparently I am the provoker - not them - when they threw glass bottles, stones and fireworks at us.

How did the police react when the first stone was thrown? They didnt. No action, no nothing. Then more stones were thrown, the eggs started raining down on us. Meanwhile, the police stood silent and did nothing. The electricity to our speakers were cut by the arabists - the police didnt do very much. Then glass bottles started to be thrown into our crowd and it is just pure luck that no one got seriously hurt. A girl got hit on the arm. Not long after that they started to throw fireworks at us, as can be seen in the video below.

What did the police do when these attacks were being executed by the arabs? Nothing at first, then they decided to remove us from the square!

Let me say that again - the police removed us, who had a permit to be there. We were not hostile or attacking anyone. But instead of removing them, who didnt have a permit, they removed us.
Let's go to the videotape. This gets really ugly a bit past the 3:00 mark:

Read and watch the whole thing (there's more video too).

If the EU and America would stop subsidizing Hamas, maybe the Palestinians will finally get it. You get extremist behavior when its coddled and nurtured. The opposite happens when there's zero tolerance for it. And there needs to be zero tolerance for jihad and terrorism and the Palestinians will pay a price if they continue to pursue it.

Its called common sense.
