A pro-Israel advocacy group in Spain has denounced the glorification of a Palestinian terrorist group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) during an event organized by the pro-independence Galician Nationalist Party (BNG).
The event took place in a public meeting of the political party in Santiago de Compostela and was attended among others by representatives of separatist Catalonian and Basque parties as well as by diplomat ‘’comrades’’ from Venezuela.
‘’It is absolutely deplorable that a political party with institutional representation and a partner of the President of the Spanish government Pedro Sanchez contributes to the justification of genocidal and Jew-hating violence that the State of Israel has had to face since the beginning of its existence,’’ said Action and Communication on the Middle East (ACOM), a civil organization of reference in Spain of friendship with Israel.
The group, which has successfully fought against BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) targeting Israel, intends to lodge a complaint in the Public Prosecutor’s Office against the event featuring the PFLP.
The PFLP is listed as a terrorist group by the European Union, the United States and Canada.
