.If the Copenhagen City Court determines that the PFLP is a liberationist
organization it could have a positive impact for a peaceful solution to
Israeli-Palestine conflict and worldwide,. summarized Israeli historian
Pape, a defense witness for seven .Fighter and Lovers. solidarity
charged with abetting terrorism by selling t-shirts with PFLP and FARC
insignias. The police confiscated proceeds, which would have gone to media
projects for these groups.
Pape gave testimony during the resumed trial sessions, November 14-16, in
Copenhagen. The professor of the Arab-Israeli conflict for 25 years
moved from his teaching job at Hafa University to head the history
department at England.s Exeter University. Son of immigrant German Jews,
Pape has lived his entire life in Hafa.
Pape outlined the history since the state of Israeli was established in
1948. He said that Israel has systematically ignored and violated the UN
Charter, the Geneva Convention, and hundreds of UN resolutions ever since.
This gives the Palestinian people legal right to defend themselves and
for their sovereignty.
Israeli has forcefully expelled two-thirds of the Palestine population
their lands and occupied 92% of what was their country. It currently
imprisons over 10,000 Palestinians, has murdered several thousands more,
addition to frequently torturing Palestinians. It denies Palestinian
detainees the same civil rights of trial and defense as is granted
.The West Bank is now encircled by a wall higher than the Berlin Wall, all
against international law and condemned by the International Haag Court,
2004,. said Pape.
.Former President Jimmy Carter describes Israeli as employing apartheid.
Nelsen Mandela stated that what it does is, in some ways, worse than what
South Africa.s white regime did..
In the first years of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine,
1967 to 1974, it did employ the use of terror, Pape said, but has since
ceased this policy. Attacking armed civilians who illegal occupy
territory is a legitimate act of defense, he maintained, as are attacks
Pape testified that the PFLP is not a terrorist organization rather a
legitimate armed and political liberation group..a very important part of
Palestinian.s lives and political process..
.It is often impossible to divide the military from civilians as they
operate so closely together, especially in the illegal settlements,. he
.It is Israeli that is illegal. If it did recognize international law, it
could not occupy Palestinian lands granted them by the UN. Israel has
systematically destroyed over 12,000 Palestinians homes. Its objective is
take over the entire country. But the PFLP recognizes the rights of two
The defense introduced documentation showing that the PFLP has
on military targets throughout this century. It ceased using car bombings
2001, recognizing them to be imprecise and a cause of harm to innocent
civilians. PFLP also builds and runs social programs where Palestinians
live, and participates in local and national elections.
In October 2005, the PFLP won 50 seats on local councils, and later that
year won 4% of the votes in the legislative council election, giving it
three seats. It is the third largest parliamentary party after Hamas and
Ole Sippel, a Danish television journalist with 40 years experience in the
field, many of them in Israel-Palestine and throughout the Middle East,
testified for the defense.
.The occupied settlements are a main cause of the increased violence.
are 140 settlements now in and around the West Bank. Many of these
are in the army reserves, are well armed and often conduct unprovoked
attacks upon Palestinians. The military protects them but not the
Palestinians,. Sippel said.
Sippel knows many members and leaders of the PFLP.
.PFLP does not use terror as an integrated policy. It answers in kind to
Israeli liquidation of Palestinian leaders,. he said, in answer to the
Israeli accusation that it was a terrorist act when PFLP liquidated its
tourist minister, Rehawam Zeevi, on October 17, 2001.
PFLP chose Zeevi because he was a key member of the Israeli cabinet and
co-responsible for security forces. illegal and brutal attacks upon
Palestinians. It was also an act of revenge for Israel.s assassination.two
months before.of PFLP general secretary, Abu Ali Mustafa, who had recently
replaced its ailing founder, George Habash.
Israel arrested four PFLP members in connection with Zeevi.s death. US and
UK forces took them to a jail in Jericho. In March, 2006, Israel.s
attacked the jail and kidnapped the four.
The state.s case
Once again state.s attorney Lone Damgaard chose not to cross-examine the
defense witnesses, part of a .tactic., she said.
Her witness, Reuven Paz, was employed from 1971 to 1994 by Israeli General
Security Service, both as a researcher and with 17 years in the field. He
has since started his own research consulting firm specializing on Middle

criticize the IGSS for using torture in interrogation of Palestinian
Paz read his statement, in which he characterized PFLP as a terrorist
organization. Much of his testimony concerned its hijackings in its early
years, which it ceased in 1974. Most civilians killed since were armed
settlers in the illegally occupied territories, although Paz considered
these killings as terrorist acts.
Paz admitted that, unlike other Palestinians resistance groups, or, in his
words, terrorist organizations, the PFLP is secular and is not financed by
other countries or outside groups.
On cross-examination, Paz conceded that PFLP central command members
denounce the use of suicide bombings, of which a handful has occurred by
young PFLP members acting on their own.
Defense attorney Torkil Hoeyer asked Paz to explain why Israel is willing
negotiate and cooperate with Fatah.which forms part of the PLO alongside
PFLP.even though it is also characterized by Israel and the EU as a
