Germany's government has banned an organization it accuses of collecting donations that are sent to Hamas-related welfare projects. The Islamist movement is included on the European Union's terror group blacklist.
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said in a statement that the International Humanitarian Relief Organization was banned Monday because it has used donations to support projects in Gaza that are related to Hamas – while presenting their activities to donors as humanitarian help.
"Under the guise of humanitarian aid, the IHH has long backed, with significant financial assistance, so-called social welfare organizations based in the Gaza Strip that can be linked to Hamas," he said.
"Donations to so-called social welfare groups belonging to Hamas, such as the millions given by IHH, actually support the terror organization Hamas as a whole."
Hamas, which runs Gaza, doesn't recognize Israel. De Maiziere said organizations that directly or indirectly work against Israel's right to exist lose their right to be active in Germany.

The was found in a research by the Danish Institute for International Studies to have ties to Hamas and other terrorist entities, directly providing funds for Hamas under the mask of "humanitarian aid", the organization's ties to terrorists were since then acknowledged by Israel, the US, and some other entities.
Kudos to Germany for that move, it deserves every appreciation for opposing organizations that sponsor terror and act against Israel's right to exist.
