    Mark Hamil, Please allow me to remind you people fighting to free their country from unlawful invaders are not terrorists but freedom fighters. In addition, I believe Bush orginally allowed Sharon to jump on the bandwagon called the "War on Terror" and label Hamas' a terrorists group to put off their challenge to his land aggression in the territories and indeed so both mens could manitain their Top Gun status in the Middle East. Shame on the EU for jumping on this bandwagon too. It's been so unfair to Hamas. It has never had any ties to Al-Qaeda or with international terrorist groups. Lastly, I was happy to read this spring in the Christian Science Monitor how the British were shedding the language associated with the "War on Terror" and were calling it "the struggle against Al-Qaeda" instead as it reflected a multi-facet approach not simply a military approach. ( http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/0418/p04s01-woeu.html ) Israel, the EU & US ought to lift the ban on Hamas.
