European Commission Decision to Make Public
Wiesenthal Centre Appeal to Investigate France, Spain and
Ireland for Alleged Funding of Palestinian Terror Bears Fruit

Paris, 29 July

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre was officially
notified last week that a letter dated 19 November 2020 from the
Centre's Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon
Samuels to the European Commission President, Ursula von der
Leyen was to become Public Record.  A first on the subject of
antisemitic terrorism.

That letter was borne out by ACOM (Action and
Communication on the Middle East), a Spanish NGO that has
successfully fought against BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) targetting Israel.

ACOM has denounced – among other extreme-left
political groups preparing for the coming winter elections – the
BNG (Galician Nationalist Bloc).  

On 25 July, that lobby had organised
a gathering in honour of the PFLP (Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine), an organisation listed by the European
Commission, the United States, Canada and other countries, as a
terrorist network responsible for mass murder since the 1980's.

The meeting, held in Santiago de Compostela was
attended by separatist movements across Spain, from Basques and Catalans to
Galicia and diplomat 'comrades' from 
Venezuela.  The common denominator was hate for Israel and violent solutions for Palestinians.  

ACOM has announced it will be taking legal
measures :

   ” – that a political organisation provided
shelter and justification for a public act identifying with an organisation
declared terrorist by Europe

    – that such facts could be constituted a
criminal offence, specifically in glorifying terrorism and the
crime of incitement to hatred, or any other results from an investigation to be initiated by the Public Prosecutor's office.”

“The Wiesenthal Centre added that the
glorification of the PFLP endangers the Spanish Jewish
community, Christian friends of Israel and Spain itself,”
stressed Samuels, in support of ACOM.

He added that “France and Ireland must also be
brought to order, in view of claims of their financial
assistance reaching terrorist movements, to be investigated by
the European Commission” concluded Samuels.
