EU Offers To Remove Hamas From Terrorist List

The catch? They have to stop suicide bombings. This seems to be the european way -- treat non-western people as if they were european. Pay them not to kill other people ... catch flies with honey and all of that.

Unfortunately they have no recourse if Hamas and its members get angry over some perceived slight or another. Then what will the EU do if the bombings start again? Put them back on the list? Big deal ... the EU is a monetary union, it has no teeth ... it is all reward and no risk for Hamas, but a lot of risk for Israel, who will fall under substantial pressure from Europe to deal with Hamas as a political entity.
