FRANCE: NO PROOF THAT HAMAS AND ISLAMIC JIHAD ARE TERROR GROUPS

Israel ought to deal with its terror threats through political, rather than military, channels.
One could be amused by such idiocy, if only it weren't so dangerous. JPost reports this morning that
Diplomatic advisor to President Chirac, Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, is quoted to have said to the Israeli ambassador in France, Nissim Zvilli, that there is no proof that these two organizations are terror groups. "If we find that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are indeed terror groups opposed to peace, we may have to change the EU's stand," said Gourdault-Montagne. "However, we mustn't limit ourselves to one, clear cut, position."
Read it all. And cry. or vomit. Whichever comes first.
