Egypt court bans Hamas movement

CAIRO (AFP) -- An Egyptian court on Tuesday banned the activities of Hamas and ordered its assets seized, a judicial source said.

Hamas denounced the move, which it said "serves the (Israeli) occupation."

Egyptian officials have accused Hamas of plotting with deposed president Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement to carry out "terror attacks" in the country.

Several Hamas members have been named among scores of defendants on trial with Morsi for organizing jailbreaks and attacking police stations during the 2011 revolt that toppled strongman Hosni Mubarak.

In a separate espionage trial, Morsi and 35 other defendants are accused of conspiring with foreign powers, including Hamas and Iran, to destabilize Egypt.

Ties between Cairo and Hamas, the Palestinian affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood, flourished during Morsi's year in power but have deteriorated since the military coup on July 3.

Cairo's new military-installed authorities were furious after Hamas officials openly criticized their decision to outlaw the Muslim Brotherhood, the target of a deadly crackdown since Morsi's ouster.

Amnesty International says more than 1,400 people have been killed in street clashes, mostly supporters of Morsi, since his overthrow.

Senior Hamas official Bassem Naim told AFP the court's decision was "an attempt to besiege the resistance, and serves the Israeli occupation."

Egyptian troops have destroyed hundreds of smuggling tunnels under the border with Gaza used to supply the Palestinian enclave with fuel and construction materials due to Israeli restrictions.

Hamas has denied accusations by Egyptian officials that it is involved in fighting in the Sinai Peninsula, where militant attacks on security forces have surged since July.

No, Tariq, it serves the interest of Palestine. Hamas does not represent Palestine. It represents Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood and some fascist Arab dictators who like to meddle in foreign affairs. Hamas wants to be an Islamic welfare puppet of Iran - or any other oil-rich fascist state that can bankroll them. You never hear Hamas leaders talk about economic development or industry or tourism (the world's #1 industry) for job creation.

Is there any way...any way at all for the Palestinian leaders ...Hamas or Abbas to finally understand that there is no way to go ...anywhere..they are stuck in 1948..67..73...they have to realize sooner or later that Jordan is their home...not Israel...they can bluster..sacerfice the bodies of their people..bds..nothing will work..they just dig a bigger hole..they can't just have babies..that won't do it either...there still are a million Jews in Russia and France to move in....

@3: Brian Cohen - "You never hear Hamas leaders talk about economic development or industry or tourism (the world's #1 industry) for job creation" - That's not true, read the articles about the priceless statue of Apollo that was recently found in Gaza. Hamas are trying to get expert help on its origins & want to put it in the Gaza museum. If we didn't have a blockade, people might like to come and look at it, and other treasures we have here.
