EU funds for pro-terror charity
The Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association (CADFA), a British charity, has announced the receipt of EU funds for its work to “support our links and exchanges for women, students and children” between Camden and the West Bank town of Abu Dis. CADFA has recently signed agreements with Erasmus, a scheme funded by the European Commission.
In truth, CADFA is a highly politicised charity with a history of support for terror. On its website, CADFA has openly described suicide bombers as “martyrs” . Osama Mohammad Bahar and Nabeel Mohammad Halabiyeh, for instance, conducted a suicide bombing in which 11 people were killed and 155 were wounded. CADFA makes no mention of their atrocities and instead pays homage to their sacrifice.
Both CADFA’s chairman and director, Munir Nusseibeh and Nandita Dowson, have protested in support of the terrorist operative Khader Adnan. Adnan is the leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a banned terrorist organisation under UK law, whose suicide bombings have killed hundreds of Jews and Arabs, including one attack in 2003, in which Islamic Jihad blew up the Maxim restaurant in Haifa, frequented by both Arabs and Jews and regarded as an encouraging example of peaceful co-existence. 21 people were killed in the attack and 51 were injured. Among the victims were two families and four children, on of which was a two-month-old baby. Palestinian Islamic Jihad also recruits children for terrorist attacks – in 2005, a thirteen year old was sent to blow himself up and murder others.
In addition, on its website and within one of its ‘updates’, CADFA voices support for the Abu Jihad Museum in Abu Dis, which memorialises imprisoned terror operatives, whom the museum lauds as ‘martyrs’. It was founded in support of Khalil Al-Wazir, a PLO terrorist who planned the infamous Coastal Road Massacre, a terror attack that took the lives of 37 people, including 13 children.
Presently, CADFA is organising a tour with Palestinian footballer Adam Halabiya, who will be speaking to CADFA audiences across Britain. Halabiya is associated with the DFLP, a Palestinian terrorist organisation which has murdered dozens of innocents. Halabiya has posted pictures on social media in praise of Adolf Hitler.
