No more access to the European Parliament for terrorists like Leila Khaled

Europe: Huge success for terrorist Leila Khaled at European Parliament

Via European Jewish Press:
"My complaint to the President was successful. The European Parliament is now not allowing access to people or groups, who have been involved in terrorist acts. Happy we have established what should have been obvious before!"

The European parliament has endorsed a proposal of its president, Antonio Tajani, to systematically deny access to all persons, groups, or entities involved in terrorist acts.
The decision followed a complaint by several MEPs after Palestinian terrorist Leila Khaled, a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was invited last September to speak in the European Parliament at a conference hosted by two Spanish far-left MEPs. She used that platform to praise extremist violence and demonize Jews.  She glorified terrorism and trivialized the Holocaust.  "Don’t you see a similarity between Nazi actions and Zionist actions in Gaza?," she declared. "While the Nazis were tried in Nuremberg, no one has ever tried the Zionists," she said.

"The European Parliament’s Bureau unanimously endorsed the President’s proposal to systematically deny access to all persons, groups, or entities involved in terrorist acts, as listed in the annexed Council Decision (CFSP) 2017/1426,"  the parliament's Directorate General for Security and Safety said in an information notice.

"In view of that decision, and in the context of combatting terrorism, Members of the European Parliament and Political Groups are requested not to invite persons listed in the Council Decision or individuals representing entities or groups on that list, nor to facilitate their access to Parliament. In addition, these persons, entities, and groups may not be promoted through audio-visual presentations or other events on Parliament’s premises."

"I am happy that we have eventually established what should have been obvious before!" commented Czech MEP Tomáš Zdechovský (European People's Party, EPP) who was the initiator of the complaints to President Tajani.

''The Council may adopt some amendments now, so we can be sure the situation with Leila Khaled will not happen again," Zdechovský added.

Two other complaining MEPs, Danish Anders Vistisen and Dutch Bastiaan Belder, from the European Conservative and Reformist group (ECR),  thanked and congratulated President Tajani "for his resolute stance against terror."

"Pleased to see that our concerns and that of 57 other MEPs [out of 751] on the presence of terrorist Leila Khaled in the EP were addressed," they tweeted.
