(January 24, 2023 / JNS) Two Anti-Israel groups organized a “Day of Rage” protest in New York City’s Grand Central Station on Saturday to demand that Israel release Palestinian terrorist Ahmad Sa’adat.
Sa’adat, the leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a U.S.-designated terrorist group, is currently serving a 30-year prison term in Israel for planning the 2001 murder of Israeli Cabinet member Rehavam Ze’evi.
The organizations, Samidoun and Within Our Lifetime, are also calling for the release of Ahmad Manasra, a Palestinian teenager currently serving a prison term in Israel for the attempted murder of an Israeli youth, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
According to MEMRI, protesters shouted, “Free them all; Zionism must fall! With our spirit and our blood, we will redeem you, oh Palestine! We don’t want no two states; we want all of it!” as well as “Five, six, seven, eight, crush the settler Zionist State!” and “Globalize the Intifada!”
In November, a top Samidoun representative called for the United States, Canada and the European Union to be conquered.
“Defeating Israel means defeating the United States. Defeating Israel means defeating Canada. These settlements [that] exist on the back of the indigenous people and the black people,” said Mohammed Khatib, the organization’s E.U. coordinator.
Samidoun was designated a terrorist organization by Israel due to its ties to the PFLP, whose members founded it in 2012.
