Israel Passes New Information to CIA about Blacklisted Palestinian NGOs

(Walla-Jerusalem Post) Barak David - An Israeli security delegation visited Washington last week in another attempt to convince the U.S. to back Israel's designation of six Palestinian NGOs as terrorist organizations. The delegation presented up-to-date intelligence regarding their involvement in the terrorist activities of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Israeli officials said. A senior Israeli official said, "We told the Americans that we acted against six organizations out of 250 similar organizations that operate in the West Bank because of their involvement in terrorism, and not because of their political positions or because they say things we don't like." A spokesman for the U.S. State Department said, "The U.S. government is currently examining additional information that Israel has provided on the matter."
