Girl Terrorist on Tv Threatens Jewish Leaders Who Help Israel

Download PDF for this date

Terrorist hijacker Leila Khaled used an appearance on a BBC television interview program to warn diaspora Jewish leaders who aid Israel that they are targets for terrorist attack. Khaled, who participated in an abortive attempt to hijack an El Al airliner over Britain several years ago, refused to name the Jewish leaders on the terrorist assassination list “because they would go into hiding.”

She admitted, on the “Man Alive” program which is investigating terrorism, that Palestinian terrorists were responsible for wounding J. Edward Sieff, managing director of the Marks and Spencer department store two years ago. “Sieff is not only a Jew, he is a Zionist. He helps Israel as do many others whose names we have and it is not just the names of the Rothschild and Sieffs,” the girl terrorist said.
