National Jewish Assembly denounces Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign for hosting event with Palestinian terrorism-linked Salah Hammouri

The National Jewish Assembly strongly denounces an upcoming event featuring Salah Hammouri, a former Palestinian political prisoner, hosted by the Omagh Branch of the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign on April 21, 2023.

Hammouri is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a group that is designated as a terrorist organization by Israel and the United States. He has also worked as a lawyer for Adameer, another organization that was designated as a terrorist entity in 2021.

Hammouri was previously convicted in a plot to kill Rabbi Ovadia Yosef in 2005 – the then former chief rabbi and spiritual leader of the Shas party.

Predictably, the event will promote a one-sided view of the conflict and serves only to promote antisemitic and anti-Israel terrorist sympathies while doing nothing to foster understanding or peaceful dialogue.

The NJA calls on the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland to take action against Omagh Community House, a registered charity, who is hosting the event. It is concerning that charity funds are being appropriated to support the veneration of a figure like Hammouri, a convicted terrorirst, who maintains an extensive connections with terrorist organizations in Israel.

The NJA advocates for balanced and fact-based discussions on the conflict, in order to promote understanding and peace between the parties involved. Events such as this, featuring a person with terrorist convictions and current links to terrorist organizations, is anathema to this cause.
