JNS.org – Google has removed from its Android app store a cell phone application built by Hamas. The app, which the Palestinian terrorist organization created to improve its connection with its followers, appeared in the Google Play Store, but was removed at 10 p.m. Saturday night (Israel time).

Earlier Saturday, Hamas announced via its @HamasInfoEn Twitter feed, “Today we launched the android app for the Arabic version of our website, while Apple refused to host the iOS application.” Hamas launched an English-language website on June 25.

The app included, among other features, historical information about the group, an overview of its terrorist activities, and updates about terrorists being held in Israeli prisons. Google said in a statement that it removes apps that violate its policies, such as those that incite hatred.
