We debate if the high-profile Jerusalem synagogue massacre by PFLP militants may be a sign of the re-emergence of leftist armed organizations worldwide.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a Marxist-Leninist group, has claimed responsibility for the Synagogue attack in Jerusalem on 18 November 2014. The group was established as a response to Israel’s 1967 occupation of West Bank by Israel and is described as a terrorist organization by the US, Canada and the European Union. During the 1970s, PFLP was associated with many international Marxist militant groups such as the Japanese Red Army, and Germany’s Baader Meinhof organization. These left-wing armed groups were very active in the 1970s and 1980s but faded away with the decline of the PFLP and the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Do you think this attack on the Jewish community can be considered part of a new trend in revolutionary movements, or is it another example of attack motivated by ethnic or religious hatred?
