- The Left Is Mainstreaming Palestinian Marxist Terrorists – John Rossomando
A disturbing trend of open support for the Palestinian Marxist-Leninist terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, or PFLP, has emerged on the political Left amid rising anti-Semitism that hides behind the label of anti-Zionism.
San Diego State University’s Women’s Resource Center advertised a program that included the slogan “From the River to the Sea Palestine Will Be Free,” and a photo of PFLP terrorist Leila Khaled clutching an AK-47. Khaled is famous for hijacking two airliners in 1970.
The university’s Students for Justice In Palestine chapter hosted now-deported PFLP terrorist Rasmieh Odeh via videoconference in 2015. Odeh played a key role in a 1969 Jerusalem supermarket bombing that killed two students.
Support for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine has gone mainstream elsewhere on the progressive Left. It’s a very bad sign for today’s divided politics that students and others on the American Left would glorify terrorists and their violent acts. (Washington Examiner)
