JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the European Union on Wednesday to keep Islamist militant group Hamas on its list of terrorist organizations, after an EU court ruled it should be removed.

"We expect them to immediately put Hamas back on the list," Netanyahu said in a statement. "Hamas is a murderous terrorist organization which in its charter states its goal is to destroy Israel."
