The European Union announced today that it is about to add a list of Palestinian organizations to it's list of terror groups. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad are already a part of this list.
Some of the new organizations are the national front for the release of Palestine, the El-Aqza martyrs and the Front for release of Palestine. The National Front's head quarters are located in Syria - and this could turn to be messy for president Asad. The Organizations are blamed for inciting suicide terrorists on Israeli land.
This is a major blow to Arafat, who up until now had won much support throughout Europe, but now will have to watch the organizations, which he supports, take a major hit. For him it is even worse than it sounds. 20 million euro in funding, which were supposed to be transferred to him will be frozen until the European Union makes a different decision.
