Palestinian terrorist organization – officially on the terror lists of the European Union and the United States – has been cleared to field candidates in Germany's upcoming parliamentary election.
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), an Iran-backed terror group, was given a green light this week to campaign as a political party in September’s parliamentary election, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The PFLP has been linked to numerous terror incidents, including a series of multiple-plane hijackings in the 1970s and the killings of numerous Israelis over the years. In 1997, according to Legal Insurrection, the group also hijacked a Lufthansa plane in an unsuccessful attempt to liberate Germany’s left-wing Baader-Meinhof terrorists.
More recently, the group was linked to the Juen death of a female Israeli police officer in Jerusalem, German newspaper Die Welt reported.
