‘Neutral’ Switzerland Takes Side: Defends Israel, Looks to Ban Hamas

The Swiss government will draft a law to ban Hamas, designating it as a terrorist organization, according to a statement.

Once approved by parliament, the law will bring Switzerland in line with the US and the European Union. Being classified as a terrorist organization would shut out Hamas out of the Swiss financial system and potentially deal a blow to its funding.

On Wednesday, Switzerland also ended its cooperation with three Palestinian non-governmental organizations, without naming them, saying there were breaches of conduct and anti-discrimination policies. The investigation, ordered after Hamas’s deadly attack against Israel on Oct. 7, found no instances of suspect financing though.
