September 24, 2014 – It doesn’t matter that the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) has been designated as a terrorist organization by the EU, UK, US and Australia.
It doesn’t matter that this organization was responsible, among other attacks, for the 1972 hijacking of an airliner from Lod airport that resulted in the deaths of 28 passengers.
It doesn’t matter that PFLP’s members slaughtered five members of the Fogel family in Itamar.
The United Nations’ 2014 Equator Prize is to be awarded to the Palestinian Union of Agricultural Work Committees, which is closely affiliated to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine with shared leadership, assets and coordinated political activities.
One of the UN prize’s recipient is Bashir al Kheiri, the head of the PFLP Political Bureau in Ramallah who has also called for the conquest of cities within Israel proper.
Another is Jamil Muhammad Ismail al Majdalawi, who heads the PFLP political office in Gaza.
The Shurat Hadin legal organization has a detailed dossier on the terror links of the UN’s awarded Arab organization.
A year ago, the chamber of commerce of Saint-Denis, a popular district in the outskirts of the Parisian municipality, honored Salah Hamouri, the member of the PFLP who planned to assassinate former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Shas’ spiritual leader.
Then the french city of Bezons granted its honorary citizenship to Majdi Rahima Rimawi, the PFLP terrorist involved in the assassination of then-Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi.
6 million dead Jews in a time span of about 3 years did not move them. To think that the murder of Jews in Israel would bring the world to their knees is just unreasonable.
But by bestowing a prize on the Fogel’s killers, the United Nations sent a simple and horrifying message, one month after the war in Gaza,: that terrorism against Jewish children and families is not only permissible, but good.
The UN is anti-Jewish beyond any hope for improvement. It is time for the State of Israel to realize that she needs to act in her best interest or the world will end up making those decisions for her.
