A non-governmental organization (NGO), which is also an Israeli-designated terror group, is urging U.S. voters to pressure lawmakers to back a Democrat-sponsored resolution “condemning” Israel, according to an email obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Your member of Congress hasn’t signed on to Rep. McCollum’s House Resolution to condemn this criminalization of Palestinian civil society,” Brad Parker, senior adviser for policy and advocacy at Defense for Children International — Palestine (DFCI-P), wrote in their email supporting the Democrat-backed resolution.

DFCI-P was designated as a terror group by the Israeli government in October 2021 for operating as part of “a network of organizations” acting “undercover” and “on behalf of” the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which is a U.S.-designated terror group. The PFLP is a Marxist-Leninist group responsible for hijacking aircrafts and murdering U.S. citizens.

The resolution in question is co-sponsored by Rep. Betty McCollum and 10 other Democrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Cori Bush of Missouri, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. The resolution demands the U.S. condemn Israel for its “repressive designation” of the groups.
