Jewish groups in Ottawa decry public appearance by speaker tied to Palestinian terror group

(June 3, 2022 / JNS) Jewish groups are decrying a four-day event being held this week in Ottawa that includes a speaker with ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a recognized terrorist organization in Canada.

The event, titled “International League of Peoples Struggles in Canada,” seeks to oppose “Canadian imperialism and militarism.” Among its main speakers are Khaled Barakat, a resident of Vancouver who has been tied to the PFLP, and his wife Charlotte Kates, who runs Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, which the Israeli Ministry of Defense calls a terrorist organization.
