An anti-Israel event scheduled to be held at the United Nations this week will feature organizations allied with the Hamas and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror groups.

The United Nations Forum to Mark Fifty Years of Occupation, which is set to be held at the UN’s headquarters in New York this Thursday and Friday, is being organized by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People and is unapologetic in its anti-Israel bent, with the first day being dedicated to talks under the headline of “Ending the Occupation: The Path to Independence, Justice, and Peace for Palestine”.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that a representative of the radical left-wing NGO B’Tselem was invited to address the event. The group’s participation in the event drew criticism from Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon.

“It's a complete disgrace that an Israeli group is helping the Palestinians harm Israel at the podium of the UN,” said Danon.

“B’Tselem is continuing its obsessive attempts to defame Israel in front of the world, and are taking advantage of their status as an Israeli organization in order to legitimize incitement against us.”

More recently, Joint List MK Aida Touma-Sliman announced her own plans to join the anti-Israel event.

On Wednesday, however, it was revealed that two organizations tied to anti-Israel terror groups were also joining the event.

The Al Haq organization, which cooperates with the PFLP – the terror group which recently murdered officer Hadas Malka in Jerusalem – will be featured at the UN forum.

In addition, the Hamas-linked Al Mezan Center for Human Rights is also sending a representative to the forum.

Danon slammed the inclusion of the two pro-terror groups at an official UN event held at UN headquarters.

“The UN is colluding with supporters of terror seeking to harm Israel,” said Danon. “It is beyond comprehension that UN funds are supporting organizations which aid terrorists and incite against Israel. We call on the Secretary General to intervene immediately and prevent these individuals from appearing at the UN.”
