As I mentioned in the first post in this series, ADDAMEER, the Palestinian Prisoner Support & Human Rights Association, has been created and run by members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the brutal terror organization responsible for the murders of tens of Israelis and non-Israelis alike.
In this post, I will look at ADDAMEER board, assembly and staff members – past and present – who have PFLP affiliations.
Board & Assembly Members
Let’s begin with ADDAMEER’s board and general assembly, a whopping nine of which have PFLP affiliations. The same goes for one former board member.
A co-founder, chairperson, and board member of Addameer, Ghaith is a member of the PFLP political bureau.
Oudeh is a senior member of the PFLP, described as a member and brother on the PFLP website.
Jaddah is a member of the PFLP and served 17 years in Israeli prison before being released in 1985 during a prisoner exchange.
Barghouthi has held leadership positions in the PFLP.
Darawi was listed on the PFLP’s 2005 candidate list for the Palestinian Parliament elections.
Al-Safadi was arrested by Israel and imprisoned for his terrorist activity with the PFLP during the First Intifada.
Naser Abu Khdair
The PFLP organized a celebration for Abu Khdair’s release from Israeli prison in 2016. In the below video showing him at the celebration, you can see a PFLP poster in the background; my Arabic-speaking source tells me he is described as a “leader” on it.
Zoa’rob is described by the PFLP as an “activist” (a word used by the organization to describes its members).
Al-Khairy is described by the official website of the PFLP as a former PFLP leader.
So there you have it. Can there be any doubt that the PFLP is actually pulling the strings of ADDAMEER, giving it an veneer of respectability?
In upcoming posts, I will show further connections between ADDAMEER members, the PFLP, and other terror organizations.
