Holland breaks ranks with the EU - and says no to Hamas


In a break with Britain, France and other countries in the EU The Netherlands refused to grant Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh an entry permit.

The Dutch persist in calling a spade a spade, saying simply that `Hamas is named as a terrorist organization by the European Union, and it would be inappropriate to grant an entry permit.'

Dutch courage indeed, as compared with some of their European brethren.
