In 1948, Israel passed the Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance, which allows it to officially designate organizations as terrorists in the Official Gazette.

What organizations have been designated this way and why?
What organizations have been "unlisted" from it and why?

(My goal is to complete the Wikipedia article about organizations officially designated as terrorists)

@RickyDemer: Thanks! I had forgotten a word indeed. –  nic Apr 27 '13 at 12:28
@NicolasRaoul This is an interesting question, but can you reformat it to better conform with the guidelines of the faq: history.stackexchange.com/faq As it stands right now this question seems to be searching for reference material, and not necessarily concerned with say the history of classifying terrorist organizations. –  ihtkwot Apr 28 '13 at 15:34
@ihtkwot: Thanks for the feedback, done! –  nic Apr 30 '13 at 7:11
@NicolasRaoul I added the why to your questions, because without that it was probably a little too close to just a straight reference question. If you think it is too far from the original scope of your question by all means change it back, and the community can decide if it is appropriate. –  ihtkwot Apr 30 '13 at 12:34
