A Middle-Eastern group with concrete links to a designated terrorist organization is being giving a platform at Barnard College in New York City, reports Algemeiner.

Addammeer, a Ramallah-based group which has ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was invited by the college to participate in an event called Breaking Bars: Fighting Incarceration from the US to Palestine.

The event is scheduled for August 2, 2018.

Yet, as human rights watchdog NGO Monitor noted, “more than half of Addameer’s current and former employees, as well as lawyers that work for Addameer, have links to the PFLP.”

The PFLP is a designated terrorist organization in the U.S. and 30 other countries.

As Algemeiner reports, “The terrorist group has carried out multiple attacks against civilians, including at least nine suicide bombings that claimed nearly 110 casualties during the Second Intifada [in Israel]. More recently, it orchestrated a 2014 massacre of five worshipers and one police officer in a Jerusalem synagogue.”

The event is being co-organized by the group Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) which bills itself as a prisoner advocacy group. One member of RAPP who will attend the event is Laura Whitehorn, who spent 14 years in prison for her involvement in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Senate and seven other sites in Washington, D.C. and New York City, including the Israel Aircraft Industries Building. Whitehorn was released on parole in 1999.

On its website, Barnard says it offers “stellar liberal arts education for women.” It calls its students “bold, brilliant and inspiring,” bragging about how “they change the world and the way we think about it.”

Further they claim, “Barnard students become agile, resilient, responsible, and creative, prepared to lead and serve their society.”

Interesting. All this by giving legitimacy and a voice to facilitators of terrorism.

This needs to stop as does tax-payer funded aid provided to Barnard students including Title IV grants, loans and work-study programs.
