Anti-Semitic Party To The German Reichstag?

Is there something in the water, or beer that drives Germans to madness?  Meanwhile, Angela Merkel, the second worst chancellor in German history is a favorite to win.  Her major opponent is even worse. 

"The German Interior Ministry declined on Tuesday to bar the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine from campaigning as a political party in the September general election to the Bundestag.

The PFLP has been designated by the EU and US as a terrorist organization.

A spokeswoman for the Interior Ministry told The Jerusalem Post a party's entitlement to run is not dependent on the assessment of politics or candidates.

When asked by the Post if the Interior Ministry plans to outlaw the PFLP, the spokeswoman said it does not, in general, comment on bans.

The spokeswoman said, candidates from parties and candidates in Germany cannot be banned or allowed by the Interior Ministry in Germany, adding that the federal election committee determines the registration of candidate lists.

The PFLP is running on a joint list with the Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany.

The PFLP has murdered scores of Israelis in terrorist attacks and hijacked airplanes. According to a Post investigation of the PFLP in Germany, it has conducted multiple celebratory events over the years in Berlin."

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) (Arabic: الجبهة الشعبية لتحرير فلسطين, al-Jabhah al-Sha`biyyah li-Taḥrīr Filasṭīn) is a secular Palestinian Marxist–Leninist and revolutionary socialist organization founded in 1967 by George Habash. It has consistently been the second-largest of the groups forming the Palestine Liberation Organization(PLO), the largest being Fatah. Currently, the PFLP is boycotting participation in the executive committee of the PLO.[9][10][11]

I guess that many Germans think they chose the wrong variety of socialism in the 1930s, so they'll try the other flavor of totalitarianism. I would have thought that there were enough former East Germans who would have told their western brethren that communism is at least as bad as Schicklgruber's national socialism.
