Israel Says London Home to Hamas Hub

(AFP) Israel's Defense Ministry accused the London-based Palestinian Return Center on Tuesday of "terror-affiliated activities" and being the organizational arm of the militant Islamic Hamas movement in Europe. Hamas is designated by the European Union as a terrorist organization. An Israeli Defense Ministry statement said that the PRC organizes conferences in Europe for Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood activists at which it plays taped speeches by Hamas leaders who are banned from entering the EU. "The center is involved in initiating and organizing radical and violent activity against Israel in Europe, while delegitimizing Israel's status as a nation among the European community." It is "part of the broader Hamas activism and support network within Europe, which is especially strong in England."
