Ahmed Saadat (C), leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), is escorted by Israeli police as he arrives to attend a hearing in his trial at the Magistrate’s Court in Jerusalem on September 9, 2012. Israeli forces captured Saadat in March 2006 in a controversial raid on a Palestinian Authority prison in Jericho, accusing him of planning the 2001 murder of far-right Israeli tourism minister Rehavam Zeevi, which was carried out by four PFLP militants.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) was in Porto Alegre for the World Social Forum’s “Free Palestine” conference, which wrapped Saturday.

There, the five-person delegation had the option of attending a conference session devoted to calling for the release of Ahmad Saadat from an Israeli jail.

Saadat was sentenced in 2008 to 30 years behind bars for heading the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Israel suspects he helped orchestrate the 2001 assassination of Israeli tourism minister Rehavam Zeevi by the PFLP – a militant group with a history of violence founded on Marxist-Leninist ideology.

In 2003, Public Safety Canada listed the PFLP as a group associated with terrorism for its history of hijacking planes and the use of suicide bombers and car bombings.

Supporters view Saadat as a political prisoner. His predecessor, Abu Ali Mustafa, was killed in 2001 by Israeli forces.

On its website, the PFLP promotes the forum and Saadat himself penned a jailhouse letter to delegates calling for an end to imperialism and an expanded boycott on Israeli products.

CUPW didn not return calls Saturday for an interview. It’s not known whether their delegates attended the workshop and CUPW documents say it supports only non-violent opposition to Israel.

Tory MP Pierre Poilievre – who supports optional union dues and backs legislation seeking to open their books – called the trip “indefensible.”

“What does any of this have to do with representing the interests of postal workers?” he asked.

  1. On a better note, read the comments that have been posted in reply to the article. The ordinary public are getting wise to Leftist bullshit and propaganda. The fight against terrorism and tyranny will start with the ordinary man-in-the-street. Forget the Leftists, they are too arrogant and stupid to see the truth, and as for the Muslims they are even worse and almost beyond all hope.
    Ordinary Joe is sick of the lies and is about to start flexing his muscle!
