Russia Invites Palestinian Terror Group to an Official Meeting, Giving Support and Legitimacy
Palestine Today reports that Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine received an official invitation to visit Moscow from the Russian Foreign Ministry.
According to the Information Office of the Islamic Jihad, a delegation headed by Deputy Secretary-General Ziad Al-Nakhla and members of the Political Bureau, Dr. Mohammad Hindi and Dr. Anwar Abu Taha, are expected to travel to Moscow to meet the Russian diplomats.
I don’t know if this is the first time that this has happened, but for any country to give official recognition to an Islamist jihadist terror group is most definitely a bad idea.
Even though Russia claims they have been fighting ISIS, it appears that the Russians consider some jihadists to be OK.
Israel should formally ask for an explanation.
