Terrorists In Germany's Parliament?

Authored by Bruce Bawer via The Gatestone Institute,

Even as Germany is increasingly cracking down on criticism of Islam, it appears prepared to give a genuine Islamic terrorist group the opportunity to win seats in its parliament...

In a remarkable decision taken at the end of August, Germany's Interior Ministry declined to bar the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) -- listed as a terrorist organization by the US, Canada, the European Union, and Australia -- "from campaigning as a political party in the September general election to the Bundestag."

Yes, the PFLP -- on a joint list with the Marxist-Leninist Party -- plans to field candidates in this month's elections in Germany and run for Parliament.

What is the PFLP?

Formed shortly after Israel's Six-Day War through the merger of three militant groups -- The Young Avengers (Palestinian nationalists), The Heroes of the Return (based in Lebanon), and the Palestinian Liberation Front (which operated largely out of Syria and the West Bank) -- it is today, after Fatah, the second largest faction in the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Described variously as a blend of "Palestinian nationalism with Marxist ideology" and as "a Palestinian nationalist organization with different ideological outlooks at different times (from Arab nationalist, to Maoist, to Leninist)," it has called for Israel's destruction and international communist revolution.

Considered more radical than Fatah, it has, ever since its founding, routinely targeted civilians without remorse. During its early days, it was on friendly terms with Germany's Red Army Faction (the Baader-Meinhof Gang) and received funding from the USSR and China. In recent years the PFLP has been chummy with Iran.Half a century ago, the PFLP specialized in hijacking planes -- it was the first Palestinian group to do so, and the first successfully to commandeer an El Al plane. That act, in 1968, is widely considered to mark the beginning of the modern era of international Islamic terrorism. On a single day in September 1970, its members hijacked three passenger flights headed from European airports to New York. In 1972, a PFLP member took part in the Lod Airport Massacre, in which 28 people were murdered at what is now called Ben Gurion International Airport. In October 2001, it assassinated Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi in retaliation for Israel's killing of its top leader at the time, Abu Ali Mustafa (after whom the group's militant wing is now named).

During the next few years, the PFLP focused on suicide bombings in Israel; more recently, it has kept busy firing rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip.

In November 2014, two PFLP associates murdered six people in a synagogue massacre in Jerusalem. On June 16 of this year, it collaborated with Hamas on a fatal attack in East Jerusalem; on July 14, it murdered two Israeli police officers in Jerusalem's Old City and bragged that its "heroic operation" had successfully broken through "the security cordon imposed by the Israeli occupation forces on the city of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa, breaking the arrogance of the Zionist security which sees in the city and in Al-Aqsa an impenetrable fortress."

Perhaps the PFLP's most famous operative is Carlos the Jackal, the legendary Venezuelan terrorist, currently serving a life sentence in France. Another high-profile member is Leila Khaled, who has been called "the first woman hijacker in history" and who has been allowed in recent years to enter many Western countries, including Germany, Sweden, Austria, and South Africa, to deliver speeches, meet with fellow communists, and confer with supporters of movements that try to destroy Israel economically.

If it seems exceedingly inappropriate for these countries' governments to afford Khaled such treatment, consider that the UN, the EU, and a number of European countries, including Germany, France, Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, have funded non-governmental organizations with links to PFLP -- among them Addameer, Al-Haq, the Alternative Information Center, the Health Work Committee, Stop the Wall, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, and the Union of Agricultural Work Committees. At least one of the groups in question, according to NGO Monitor, was founded and is run by the PFLP; others have convicted terrorists on their payrolls and/or have abetted PFLP and its members in one way or another. There has, however, been remarkably little media attention paid to the fact that at least some of taxpayer money donated by these Western countries has found its way into the PFLP's coffers, and more than $300 million annually to the salaries of terrorists.

But of all the actions taken by Western governments and international organizations that have benefited the PFLP, none has come as close to legitimizing it as Germany's decision to let it field candidates in this month's elections. "For observers of terrorism in Germany," wrote Benjamin Weinthal in the Jerusalem Post, "it is unclear why the ministry is reluctant to outlaw the Palestinian organization." After all, it is not as if the Federal Republic of Germany has no power to ban parties; it outlawed the Volkssozialistische Bewegung Deutschlands/Partei der Arbeit (People's Socialist Movement of Germany) in 1982 and the Freiheitliche Deutsche Arbeiter Partei (Free German Workers Party) in 1995.

Nor are today's German authorities shy about silencing individuals for holding views they consider inappropriate. Gatestone Institute's Soeren Kern noted in 2012 that German authorities were "monitoring... websites that are critical of Muslim immigration" and were prepared to shut them down. In 2014, Bavarian officials sought to gag critics of a new mega-mosque; in January of last year, the Washington Post reported that Germany had "reached a deal with Facebook, Google and Twitter to get tougher on offensive [read: anti-Islamic] content." German police even raided the home of a critic of Muslim refugees.

A German court had given five months' probation to a woman for her online comments "about an alleged rape of a German woman by an asylum seeker." In June 2016, German police raided the homes of thirty-six additional people guilty of "hate posting" online; in July, they raided about sixty more homes.

It is hard not to see this as a strange, ironic, and tragic historical moment. In living memory, Germany was transformed from a fearsome totalitarian power, bent on conquest and genocide, into a cornerstone of liberal democracy.

Now, even more than many of its similarly misguided European neighbors, it is plainly headed in a direction that should give pause to every lover of Western freedom: even as it is increasingly cracking down on criticism of Islam, it appears prepared to give a genuine Islamic terrorist group the opportunity to win seats in its national legislature.

if there is any justice in the world, the israeli u.s. wars on the countries of the middle east which have produced millions of exiles will change the character of the european states, especially germany, to implacable enemies of israel.  and thus full circle to the third reich from which israel took so much of its playbook.

Also of course, this article was put out by the Gatestone Institute, John Bolton's Zio-Loony outfit.  A bunch of racist bigots pushing for genocide of the native inhabitants of the Middle East, to clear Lebensraum for Eastern Europeans calling themselves "Jewish."  Their call to the US is, "Let's you and them fight!"

this is great news.

it is only by hiding behind the false separation of "Islam" and "Radical Islam" that the mis-leaders of €urope can hold up the doublethink canard of:

"The Religion of Peace"

by calling a spade a spade the enemy can be seen.

I urge everyone to buy and read Tommy Robinson's new book

"Mohammed's Koran"

Don't single out one of the Abrahamic religions as crazy.  They're all crazy as shithouse mice, taken to any extreme.  Which isn't surprising; they have basically the same origin mythologies and sacred books, they're all from the same people in the same area, and the only major differences came as they evolved over time and location.As a non-Theist, I've always found the militant Theists to be very strange.  They're all fighting for the same things; food, water, resources, control of trade routes, money, power; yet they claim the whole problem involves somebody else's superstitious beliefs.  Funny how these conflicts which were considered intractable suddenly vanish once some very worldly considerations are accommodated.

Kudos, glad to see the count of non Theist folk/aka non batshit crazy poo throwing monkeys increasing @ 0hedge.*BUT* being a liberal libtard aka left fascist is equally bad with being religios because both submit to extremist non tolerant doctrines based on imagination and idealism vs being down to earth anchored in realism, logic & philosophy.

Not certain that Ramadan was celebrated in the State Dept after Obama left. Obama appears to have been the USA's first (covertly) gay Muslim president and filled the USA government with celebrants of both the gay lifestyle and of the Muslim religion. Obama it seems falsely disguised himself as a hetero "Christian" to fool the population in the elections.

Some are still there but not the official power though perhaps involved in various degrees of sedition to destroy the Trump administration, which is more based on the family traditions and Judeo-Christian tenets.

But...but...but...I thought I was supposed to be afraid of the Muslims for, among other reasons, their terrible treatment of gay people!  But now our government is being covertly run by gay Muslims?Wouldn't that balance itself out and negate itself?And what are these family traditions and Judeo-Christian tenets so crucial to the Trump Administration?  Is it the multiple marriages?  The bankruptcies?  The connections to (((Goldman Sachs)))?

Well, as an asylum seeker, recognized by the government, you'll get an appartment (+ central heating, water, electricity...), free health care, which is really perfect in the Federal Republic. The German Red Cross and other organisations collect clothes and shoes, TV-sets, radios, bicycles and other useful things which are given to our new fellow citizens.

One day within th next 2 decades there will be an outbreak of ISIS on the EU mainland. And people will wonder agape why the standing Army of that European Nation is ordered to stand down

That seems to the goal both for Europe and the Americas. A faction of the Globalists seemed to have planned to use Muslims disguised as refugees to infiltrate both continents. Grow cells through the fast breeding quadruple subjugated wives.

Then when the community is large enough take over the politics of the various countries and overthrow the native populations from within then subjugate them with the intensely subjugating Sharia mindset (called religion by those with lack of clarity).

Initially the military will stand down but they are being trained to respond to the orders of the Globalists who plan to use the military to then destroy the Muslims who have done their work for them thru the spread of a "religion" that is a subjugation formula. Most religions have mind control as well as spiritual elements. Spiritual seduction is the Hook (moon crescent points) then the religious "thou shalt" rules follow quickly as the Hammer.
Hammer and Sickle.

Angeeeeeeeeela Akhbaaaaaaaaaaaaaar!  It's OK! It's all going to plan as Germanostan's war loving atlanticist aristocracy stokes more chaos while their arms industries thrive. Meanwhile the barbarian hordes fill up their slum housing inside Germanostan proper. As whitey and the imported muzz target each other the political and bankster filth and their facespuck GESTAPO look down from on high and demonize the politically incorrect who have it figured.   "Count" Richard Coudenhove von Kalergi's genocidal screed "Practical Idealism" in pdf format in link below......the original Austrian NAZI and his satanic tome that makes Onkel Adolf's "Mein Kampf" look like a bedtime story.  This was the psychopath that laid the foundations of the abomination in Natostan sewer Brussels, seat of the totalitarian Pedophile Politburo that runs the EUSSR for the banksters and necromongers.  http://www.mediafire.com/file/vcpu7j7hakukmde/Coudenhove-Kalergi-Practic...   "In his book «Praktischer Idealismus», (1920) Austrian Count Richard Von Coudenhove Kalergi indicates that the residents of the future "United States of Europe" will not be the People of the Old Continent, but a kind of sub-humans, products of miscegenation. He clearly states that the peoples of Europe should interbreed with Asians and colored races, thus creating a multinational flock with no quality and easily controlled by the ruling elite. Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination and then the elimination of nations with the use of ethnic separatist movements and mass migration. In order for Europe to be controlled by an elite, he wants to turn people into one homogeneous mixed breed of Blacks, Whites and Asians. Who is is this elite however? Kalergi is particularly illuminating on this: The man of the future will be of mixed race. The races and classes of today will gradually disappear due to the elimination of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-negroid race of the future, similar in appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples and the diversity of individuals. Instead of destroying European Judaism, Europe, against her will, refined and educated this people, driving them to their future status as a leading nation through this artificial evolutionary process. It's not surprising that the people that escaped from the Ghetto-Prison, became the spiritual nobility of Europe. Thus, the compassionate care given by Europe created a new breed of aristocrats. This happened when the European feudal aristocracy crashed because of the emancipation of the Jews [due to the actions taken by the French Revolution]     "Count" Richard Coudenhove Kalergi’s Plan outlined by Gerd Honsik “Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination, ... the elimination of nations by means of ethnic separatist movements or mass allogeneic (genetically dissimilar) immigration to create a multiethnic flock without quality, easily controllable by the ruling class. Kalergi characterized the multiethnic flock as cruel and unfaithful but maintained the elite must deliberately create them in order to achieve their own superiority: ‘Then the elite will first eliminate democracy – the rule of the people. Next, the elite will eliminate the people via miscegenation, thereby replacing the ruling white race with an easily controllable mestizo race. By abolishing the principle of equality of all before the law, avoiding and punishing any criticism of minorities, and protecting minorities with special laws, the masses will be suppressed.’'

I approached this article with the familiar churning of the stomach but the analysis needs further consideration.My intuition was confirmed when I happened upon this gem 

Germany was transformed from a fearsome totalitarian power, bent on conquest and genocide,  

Isn't that just the cutest thing anyone has ever said?

Is there such an entity as a legitimate government?I have no issue with militant Palestinians doing what they do. Not my problem. Ten years ago if you said you had concerns about how Palestine was treated you'd get stink eye. Now its kind of like even the UN thinks that Israel is being naughty.When you drill down to it, all government seats are terrorist seats. This is sort of the way the world is. Skippy from Lincoln Nebraska is a fucking terrorist in training.What is really sad is when known "terrorist" organizations are not allowed to compete freely with straight up NAZIs. It's a shame. Sure militant communists with a track record of murdering people are allowed but they can't compete with home grown because that would be embarrassing. Especially if the young Turks or whomever lost.The problem is that there is even a civil society. Better just let people straight up fucking kill each other in the streets than pretend any government is wholesome or necessary. It sounds a lot like Germany is just a shit hole run by criminals. The real people, the just, honest, honorable people will be rounded up and shot. Look at Germany. That's what happens when you let a Commie bitch in office.Go fix it Germany. What's worse? Being called facists or being alive?

Merkel started out as a member of the communist party in East Germany. I'm sure she has abjured that now.

What is communism, really? Well, historically it is totalitarian. It forbids individuals owning property. It is an ideology that is forced down peoples' throats. It is atheistic and forbids the Christian religion. It murders millions (the Bolsheviks, 65,000,000,Stalin, 10,000,000, Mao 35,000,000, Pol Pot 1,000,000.) It is cosmopolitan, forbidding expressions of national culture.

Maybe we should fear and reject leaders who have collectivist, totalitarian tendencies, leaders who are anti-Christan and against the family, leaders who believe in forcing citizens to bend to their will, leaders who reject their own national flag, their national history and culture.

When the leaders know better than the people, be very afraid.
