The US online payment service PayPal has closed the account of the Germany-based NGO International Alliance – an organization that sympathizes with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist organization and supports boycotting Israel.
The Jerusalem Post launched an investigation in early September into the funding stream of International Alliance (Internationalistisches Bündnis). The PayPal payment service for International Alliance had been available for several weeks in September. On Thursday, International Alliance's PayPal account stated: "This recipient is currently unable to receive money."
The Post reported on September 1 that German bank Sparkasse Witten shut down the NGO's account.
