Hamas should be removed from the European Union's terrorist list, an EU court ruled Wednesday, saying the decision to include the Palestinian group was based on media reports not considered analysis.The EU's foreign policy arm said the bloc continued to view Hamas as a terrorist group.We in Israel, we've learned," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. He branded Hamas "a murderous terrorist organization". Hamas says it is a legitimate resistance movement and contested the European Union's decision in 2001 to include it on the terrorist list.In a similar ruling, an EU court said in October the 2006 decision to place Sri Lanka's Tamil Tigers on the EU list was procedurally flawed.
