Arrested Palestinian Terrorist Leader Was BDS Official – Sean Savage
Khalida Jarrar, 56, whose arrest was announced on Wednesday by the Israel Security Agency, was the head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s terror operations in the West Bank. Until recently, Jarrar also served as vice chairperson, director and board member of the BDS organization Addameer.
Marc Greendorfer, president of the Zachor Legal Institute, said, “Jarrar is simply one example of the extensive overlaps between terror organization leadership and BDS, going all the way to the top, where the organizing and operational leadership of BDS [the BDS National Committee, or BNC] includes a coalition of groups designated as foreign terror organizations by the United States.”
According to NGO Monitor, more than half of Addameer’s current and former employees, as well as lawyers that work for it, have links to the PFLP, while other employees have ties to Hamas. Yifa Segal, director of the International Legal Forum, said, “The BDS movement was funded by terrorists, and it is being led by terrorists.” (JNS-Israel Hayom)
