EU Council appealing ruling that took Hamas off terror list

Last month, a European court decided based on a 'technicality' that Hamas is not a terror organization. Now, the European Union Council has decided to appeal the ruling.
"(The EU) Council has decided to appeal the judgment regarding Hamas remaining on the EU terrorist list," EU spokeswoman Susanne Kiefer said on Twitter.
But that doesn't mean that this month's events in Paris have made the Europeans any wiser about confronting terrorist threats.
Meanwhile, the European Union is calling for an anti-terror alliance with Arab countries to boost cooperation and information-sharing in the wake of deadly attacks and arrests across Europe.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Monday "we need to strengthen our way of cooperating together."
She spoke to reporters ahead of talks with EU foreign ministers in Brussels, to be attended by Arab League Secretary General Nabil Al-Araby.
The foreign ministers' meeting will prepare in part for a summit of EU leaders in February focused on terrorism.
Ah yes, Federica Mogherini, the woman whose pleasure in life would be the existence of a 'Palestinian state.'

What could go wrong?
