PALESTINIAN TERROR GROUP PFLP CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY IN BERLIN
BERLIN — Supporters and a high level official of the international designated terrorist organization the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine celebrated the group’s 50th anniversary in Berlin.
A video was posted Monday on YouTube by the German left-wing extremist organization “Youth Resistance Media” showing supporters and likely members of the PFLP at the anniversary event calling for the “Death to Zionism” with the use of “rifles.”
Dr. Elvira Grözinger, the head of the German section of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME), told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that the “presently prevailing and growing pogrom atmosphere against the Jews as ‘Zionists’ and the Israel-related antisemitism in Muslim circles in Germany are only made possible because there are German supporters like these still existing — Stalinist fanatics and other ignorant contemporaries.”
Grözinger, who organized a conference on German antisemitism last week in Berlin, added, “When the democratic state does not immediately start to enforce the existing laws against hate speech and incitement against the Jews living here, these forces calling for terror will remain active. And the Jews, when unprotected, will know the answer — it will not be a pleasant one for the declining democracy in a once so exemplary country.”
The US, Israel and EU classify the PFLP as a terrorist organization. Israeli MKs such as Yair Lapid from Yesh Atid and German MPs have urged Germany’s interior minister Thomas de Maizière to ban the PFLP in Germany. Two members of the PFLP murdered four rabbis with axes in a November 2014 attack in a synagogue in Jerusalem.
