In today’s savage climate, calling a terrorist a terrorist, it’s a stunning breakthrough. Now, let’s designate its US affiliates – CAIR, ISNA etc and something President Bush should have done after the Holy land Foundation trial.
This was not a good day for Hamas-linked CAIR. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in their D.C. office. One Hamas co-founder dead, the other named a designated terrorist by the U.S. government.
The United States government has designated Hamas Politburo Chief Ismail Haniyeh as a specially designated terrorist, becoming the first country outside of Israel to do so.
President Trump continues to make good on his campaign promises and do what must be done. Hands down, the greatest president of my lifetime.
The other Hamas co-founder has died after accidentally shooting himself in face, the terror group has said. Justice is served.
“All assets belonging to Haniyeh under US jurisdiction will be frozen,” Sales told The Post.“This designation allows us to dry up the sources of funding and kick them out of the international financial system.”
Why the West would fund those who intent on destroying us will confound historians in the centuries to come.
U.S. classifies Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh as specially designated terroristBy Anna Ahronheim, J Post, January 31, 2018:
US is first country outside Israel to make such a move, cutting off all assets under US jurisdiction
The United States government has designated Hamas Politburo Chief Ismail Haniyeh as a specially designated terrorist, becoming the first country outside of Israel to do so, Ambassador Nathan A. Sales, the Coordinator for Counterterrorism told The Jerusalem Post.
“Ismail Haniyeh has been involved in Hamas’ campaign of terrorism against Israel for years and even decades. The United States is not fooled by any attempt by Hamas to rebrand itself. We know it for what it is, a terror organization committed to the destruction of the State of Israel.”
Following the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by US President Donald Trump on December 6, Haniyeh called for a violent uprising in response to the move that he vowed would continue until “Jerusalem’s liberation.”
According to Sales, the consequences of this designation under executive order 13224 which aims to impede terrorist funding, is “significant.”
“All assets belonging to Haniyeh under US jurisdiction will be frozen,” Sales told The Post.“This designation allows us to dry up the sources of funding and kick them out of the international financial system. We don’t want to only stop the bomber, but the person who buys the bombs.”
