EU reference is 404[edit]

I can't find the EU list anymore on EUR-Lex. Anyone knows where it is? Nicolas1981 (talk) 03:44, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Jewish Defense League[edit]

THIS FBI source says "The Jewish Defense League has been deemed a right-wing terrorist group." While it is a document written and hosted by the FBI, I don't think it is an official designation, but it is borderline, so I just thought I would post it here. What do you think? Anyway it would belong to the "former organizations" table. Nicolas1981 (talk) 03:46, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your contribution. However, it's not listed here. We must go by the official up to date list. If you can provide the 2000-2001 official list, it would certainly be worth consideration.Worldedixor (talk) 08:46, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

New list for Turkey[edit]

Only in Turkish, could someone please translate?


I apologize if this has been covered before, but why isn't the Klu Klux Klan included on this list? A Quest For Knowledge (talk) 01:40, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Although many of it's activities can be considered terrorism, it is not a designated terrorist organization listed here by the state department. Unless it is listed there or is listed as a terrorist organization by another one of the governments then it can't be listed. SantiLak (talk) 02:55, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. That link lists foreign terrorist organizations. Is there a similar list for domestic terrorist groups? A Quest For Knowledge (talk) 03:03, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't believe so because although the FBI does maintain a list of most wanted Domestic terrorists (US Citizens who committed terrorists acts in the US usually), it does not maintain a list of domestic terror groups. It would also be difficult to compile a list and remain neutral because as there is no official government source to say what a domestic terrorist group is and even if most people agree that for example the KKK is a domestic terrorist group, it couldn't be listed because it lacks the designation. SantiLak (talk) 06:02, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
If you know any country that has inserted KKK in one of their official lists of terrorist organizations, please let us know. Solid references needed. Cheers! Nicolas1981 (talk) 07:31, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Can this page be considered an official designation?[edit]

Someone has added a checkmark for HIG - USA using as a reference.

It is a webpage written by a governmental anti-terrorism entity, but it does not say that HIG is terrorist, it just say that HIG performs attacks. Is it a valid designation?

What do you all think? Cheers! Nicolas1981 (talk) 08:15, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

It could be but HIG is already designated and listed in the article so I think that is kind of redundant. SantiLak (talk) 19:58, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
Redundant? The HIG - USA checkmark was not there before. It was added with this reference. What is the other reference for it? Nicolas1981 (talk) 05:00, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Well HIG's leader is a designated foreign terrorist but the organization is only designated as a group of concern by the State dept so I don't really see what the solution would be because it isn't technically a designated FTO but it's leader is a designated terrorist and it is a group of concern. I think some other opinions are needed on the matter. SantiLak (talk) 05:18, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
