This is nothing short of outrageous.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, an EU and US classified terrorist entity responsible the murders of scores of Israelis, seeks to enter the German Bundestag in the September 24 federal election.
“It should not have been allowed to come to this that an anti-Israel terror organization in Germany formed an election alliance and is an election choice,” said Volker Beck, a Green Party MP.
Beck, who is chairman of the German-Israel parliamentary group in the Bundestag, said “the federal Interior Ministry must quickly act and ban the PFLP.”
The Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany (MLPD) joined forces with the PFLP to be on the election ballot. Germany’s most recent federal intelligence report, from 2016, listed the MLPD as a “leftist extremist party” that has been “unsuccessful in elections.”
The MLPD has 1,800 members and supporters, the intelligence report noted.
According to an August 16 report by journalist Stefan Laurin in the weekly German-Jewish newspaper Jüdische Allgemeine, the federal intelligence agency does not see a problem with PFLP.
Though the PFLP is included in the EU terrorist list, the intelligence agency said the PLFP “has not executed up until now any militant actions.”
So is this.
The PFLP held a celebration event for the 49th anniversary of the creation of the Palestinian terrorist organization with “the supporters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine” in Berlin in December.
According to the PFLP website, the PLO’s ambassador to Germany, Kholoud Daibes, attended the event. A photograph of Doris Ghannam,a representative from the BDS (boycott, divest, sanctions) campaign against Israel in Germany, speaking at the PFLP event is also shown on the website.
It’s true. From the PFLP website:
Doris Ghannam spoke on behalf of BDS Berlin about the growing movement internationally to support the Palestinian people through boycott, divestment and sanctions against the racist occupation state, and popular action to cut the support lines given to occupation, oppression and apartheid by the German government and the European Union.
Remember, the PLFP are a terrorist organization aiming towards a one-state solution – a palestinian state.
Which tells you all you need to know about the BDS movement.
