An Islamist Palestinian group based in Gaza has been placed on the US terrorist black list, the State Department announced Tuesday.

Since its founding in 2012, the "Mujahidin Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem" has claimed responsibility for a number of rocket attacks on Israel and a cross-border attack with explosives that killed a civilian at an Israeli construction site, according to the State Department.

It said the group was composed of several jihadist sub-groups, and had declared its support for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a militant group that has declared a caliphate in areas of Iraq and Syria that it controls.

The US action bars Americans from engaging in transactions with the group and orders a freeze any assets it may have in the United States.

the United States of hypocrisy
It embraces despots from King Abdullah of SA to Sissi, to Assad to Maliki of Iraq while babbling about democracy and human rights. Were the U.S. serious about democracy, it would have boycotted Sissi and his junta following the Rabaa carnage in 2013.

The US is a terrorist state subservient to Judeo-Nazis
America itself is ruled and controlled by supremacist Judeo-Nazi groups with designs for world domination.
