Germany Imposes Four-Year Travel Ban on Senior Palestinian Terrorist

BERLIN – The German government has issued a four-year travel ban against a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) who allegedly supports terrorism and Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish state.

The Palestinian journalist and alleged PFLP terrorist Khaled Barakat, who is based in Canada, said in a webinar in late March that the German authorities imposed a “four-year ban on me entering Germany” because “I support [the Palestinians’] right to resist Israel, call for the liberation of Palestine from river to sea… that I support the Palestinian organization and they name it the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).”

The EU and the US both classify the PFLP as a foreign terrorist organization. Barakat is a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, according to the Israeli government.

Barakat also said that Germany cited his opposition to the Oslo peace plan and a two state solution for the Israel-Palestinian conflict, refusal to recognize Israel’s right to exist, as well as his support for the BDS campaign targeting the Jewish state in the 23-page ruling.
