LISTEN TO THE ISLAMIC AGENDA ON JERUSALEM PULSE RADIO

Not sure what you understand about the War on Terror and what's going on in the Israeli/Palestinian dispute? Tune into my new show, The Islamic Agenda at
www.JerusalemPulseRadio.com. I'll give you insight and analysis into the conflict you won't see in mainstream media. Another new show is in the works concerning intelligence matters that will be called the JPR Inside Report. Please tune in.

Christian persecution by Muslims in Bethlehem is at an all time high. At the same time, the PLO and Hamas are now engaing in a major propaganda campaign in US churches to make people think that it is Israeli persecution and the Security Fence that is causing Bethlehem's Christian population to flee. I've written here before about Anna Baltzer of International Womens Peace Service. This one woman kapo team is touring American churches trying to get them to Boycott Israel and aid the terrorist organizations by claiming it's the Jews who are persecuting Bethlehem's Christians and not the Muslim Palestinian Arabs. IWPS, and Christian Peacemaker Teams, both affiliates of the ISM, are anti-Semitic leftist front wings of the Christian church working to attack Israel with the same lies and ferocity as the Muslim Arabs. Ms. Baltzer elicits gasps (and sells books) with tales of Israeli soldiers causing Arab women to miscarry bbabies (but she can't even provide a last name for the victims, relying on Arab hearsay). If you want to do some good, write to the Israeli Foreign Ministry and ask them to deny her reentry into Israel when she finishes her current tour of US churches propagandizing against Israel. If she appears at a church near you, write the pastor and raise your objections. People of Jewish descent like Baltzer are now finding lucrative sinecures as the Jews against a Jewish state. They do not work to create a secular state where Muslims and Jews can live as equals (actually they already do in Israel), but only want people to think they are fighting for equality as they act as Jewish mouthpieces for the Muslim
factions of the PLO. This is Anna Baltzer.

The DIGUSTING PARENTS OF THE YEAR AWARD goes to Cindy and Craig Corrie, the parents of Rachel Corrie. While the ISM and PLO try to play up this miserable girl as a "peace activist," she was in fact a self-avowed anarchist who was busy aiding the Palestinian terrorists by serving as a human shield for them. Only two weeks before she died playing chicken with an IDF bulldozer the size of a two story building, she sent home emails to Cindy Corrie explaining how she helped remove a dead terrorist's body from a weapons smuggling tunnel. That means she had access to those tunnels and obviously was in touch with the weapons smugglers, the same people who killed Israeli children like 4 year-old Afik Zahavi in his day care center.

The Corries are slimballs and should not be immune to criticism because of the death of their revolutionary wannabe daughter. Instead of urging the parents of other children who might be duped into volunteering with the ISM from going to the Middle East to aid terrorist groups, they now tour America for the terrorists' cause. There's money to be made as no doubt they have received money from the PLO. I saw these two slimeballs at a church in Berkeley claim that "Rachel was protecting Palestinian water wells" while in Gaza. You know something? It's bullshit (sometimes a crude word is necessary) and what's more I think the Corries know this. Gaza gets its water from the Israeli Interior Ministry. IDF soldiers do not shoot at "Palestinian municipal water workers" for sport. Rachel was acting as a human shield with other ISMers for Arabs who were working on tunnels to
transport weapons supplies like the Kassem missiles being fired on Sderot in the Negev that killed little Afik. Rachel even wrote home to momma praising the martyrs and mentioning how she brough a dead terrorist's body out of one of the tunnels.
Duh, Cindy Corrie, your daughter was a SLIMEBALL and given your going about promoting the terrorist thugs of the PA like Abbas (who also killed American Leon Klinghoffer and arranged the Munich massacre) shows the apple did not fall far from the tree.

Making money off one's dead daughter isn't half as bad as encouraging other people's children to go risk their lives for Arab terrorists. Stupid people can be excused for being just plain stupid. The Corries aren't stupid, they are slimeballs.


THE UNTOUCHABLE PAUL LARUDEE. For some reason the US government just can't bring itself to put this bastard in jail despite his openly flaunting anti-terrorism provisions and tax laws of the United States. LaRudee in the past has openly trained ISM "volunteers" to act as human shileds for terrorist groups. He boasted about sleeping int he bed of a suicide bomber. I got him arrested and deported as he tried to enter Isael under a fasle identity to meet with Hamas. Once deported, this degenerate went to Lebanon to aid the Hizballah, the same Hizballah that killed 231 US marines in 1983 in a terrorist attack. Now he's back, trying to raise funds for
a flotilla of ships to break the IDF naval blockade of Gaza so Hamas can bring in weapons by sea. Actually, he's not so untouchable as I got him deported from Israel. But why the federal authorities in the US don't put this terrorist-supporting creep in prison is becoming increasingly annoying. More on this creep later when I have time...Thanks for tuning in.

A NEW RADIO SHOW ON JERUSALEM PULSE RADIO

I have a new radio show on Jerusalem Pulse Radio titled the Islamic Agenda and will alternate it weekly with the JPR Inside Report on intelligence matters. You can listen in here: http://www.jerusalempulseradio.com/show/4 on the Web. I've been a little neglectful with this blog, as I prefer writing on mainstream news websites.
I'm hoping to remedy that with the new radio show and then do follow-ups here on this blog. Feel free to write me here if any of you want a particualr show done as a topic, or have questions you wish to pose to me.

PAUL LARUDEE OF ISM PLANNING TO RUN ISRAELI CONTROL OF GAZAN WATERS FOR HAMAS

A year ago from last June I got Paul LaRudee of Norcal ISM caught as he tried to enter Israel under a false identity to aid Hamas. He was ultimately deported by the Israelis but then went to Lebanon where he worked to aid Hizballah in last summer's
war. Now LaRudee is working to build a flotilla to sail from Cyprus in the Mediterranean to the shores off Gaza to break the Israeli naval blockade to prevent the shipment of weapons to Hamas by sea. Anyone who follows the newswires knows that after Israel did a complete withdrawal from Gaza, the Jewish state has been pounded daily by Kassem rockets aimed at schools and other community centers. LaRudee's friend in the ISM helped facilitate these weapons transfers through the Philadelphi corridor in Rafah and are now trying to open up the sea lanes.

A campaign to stop this action needs to take place and soon. LaRudee has been lying and saying the Department of Justice told him it was not illegal to aid Hamas the way he is doing it, however, it is illegal to aid Hamas. Hamas is the govcernment in Gaza and the US Treasury Department has classified priovate citiznes working with the Hamas in Gaza as engaing in illegal activity.

In the coming days I will inform my readers about how to put a stop to this flotilla by Mr. LaRudee, who should ahve been jailed in the United States long ago. Paul LaRudee once boasted I could not keep him out of Israel as he went there to aid terrorists and he even boasted about sleeping in the bed of a suicide bomber. Well, I showed him I could. Now, it is up to all of us to have this man jailed for aid and support to terrorists overseas for this attempted flotilla. Come back to this blog in the next few days for advice and how to pursue a course of action.

THE OTHER EVENT DURING ISLAMO-FASCISM AWARENESS WEEK AT UC BERKELEY

UC Berkeley sinks to a new low: Leila Khaled
By Lee Kaplan

A day after Nonie Darwish spoke amidst constant interruptions and jeers at UC Berkeley about the subjugation of women in the Arab-Muslim world for the start of Islamo-fascism Awareness Week, another event was presented on the San Francicsco Bay Area campus the very next day that received no critical attention from the mainstream media.

The following announcement was put out with the cooperation of the University of California, a taxpayer-supported state institution:

Women, Resistance, and Political Participation
Film Screening of Leila Khaled: Hijacker and Panel Discussion
Tuesday, October 23, 7pm
10 Evens Hall, UC Berkeley

Sunbula: Arab Feminists for Change invites you to a film screening of Leila Khaled: Hijacker by Lina Makboul. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion of women, resistance, and political participation in the context of liberation struggles. The panel will include Professor Nada Elia, Katrina Socco, Bay Area Coordinator of the Gabriela Network and Lena Meari. Sunbula is a Bay Area grassroots organization of radical Arab feminists working for equality, social change and gender justice. Affirming the diverse experiences of Arab and Arab-American women, the members of Sunbula seek to dismantle all forms of oppression by promoting awareness of women's issues. Visit www.sunbulawomen.org.

Co-presented with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at the University of California,
Berkeley, and the Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC).

Who is Leila Khaled?

In September, 1970, Leila Khaled, a member of the “Che Guevara Commando Unit” of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine took part in hijacking four commercial airliners over Europe (ever wonder where Osama bin Laden may have gotten his ideas for planning multiple airline hijackings on 9/11?).

Khaled had actually been involved in another hijacking just a year earlier of an airplane on a flight from Rome to Athens that was supposed to have then Israeli Ambassador to the US Yitzhak Rabin on board, but when it was learned the future Israeli Prime Minister was not on the aircraft, it was flown to Damascus and blown up while Khaled was allowed to go free. Only a year later she would repeat her tactics.

Already dubbed the “first woman terrorist hijacker,” Khaled and her team then hijacked a TWA Boeing 747 from Frankfurt that was bound for New York, a Swissair Douglas DC-8 departing from Zurich, a Pan Am Boeing 747, and an El Al Boeing 707 all at the same time. Khaled was on board and in charge of the El Al flight hijacking that just left Amsterdam when an Israeli security agent shot and killed her American co-hijacker, Patrick Arguello, and retook control of the airplane. Kahled, who was armed with pistols and a hand grenade, was also wounded. The plane was forced to land at Heathrow Airport where Khaled was arrested by British authorities. As she was taken off the airplane on a stretcher she screamed, “Palestine! Palestine!”


The PFLP sent an ultimatum to the United Kingdom, West Germany and Switzerland to release all Palestinian and Baader-Meinhoff gang prisoners held for terrorism in Europe. 251 men, women and children, many of them Americans, were then held hostage in Amman by the PFLP. After six days, the PFLP got a notice that the terrorists were released, including Khaled, but in despite of that, the passengers still remaining on the aircraft were evacuated to Amman and the 3 aircraft were blown up. Fortunately, none of the passengers died.

Khaled has been a revolutionary superstar amongst the Palestinians and communist revolutionaries ever since then. She allegedly is under “house arrest” in Jordan, but speaks frequently in support of terrorist activities and is still a member of the Palestine National Council.

The organizers of the event at UC Berkeley, Sunbula, a.k.a. Arab Feminists for Change, list as their mission statement that it is an “organization of radical Arab feminists working for equality, social change and gender justice. Affirming the diverse experiences of Arab and Arab-American women, the members of Sunbula seek to dismantle all forms of oppression by promoting awareness of women's issues.” The film and panel event about Khaled on the Cal campus was not to condemn what she did in any way, but to laud it as an achievement by an Arab woman who could show she could be just as much a terrorist as any man.

The key panelist was Nada Elia, a member of the (National Women’s Studies Association) and professor at Antioch University in Washington State. She is co-founder of RAWAN (the Radical Arab Women’s Activist Network) and did her undergraduate work at Beirut University College, then earned her M.A. at the American University of Beirut and a Ph.D in Comparative Literature at Purdue. RAWAN claims it is a “peace” group but calls for the eradication of Israel “from the river to the sea” and declares American military actions after the attacks on 9/11 as without justification.

One of her co-panelists is Katrina Socco of the Gabriela Network (Grabnet) , a Marixst Filipina organization that affiliates with International Answer and United For Peace and Justice (US Communist Party). Some of Grabnet’s members are on a terrorism watch list used by the Phillipine government for potential links to al Qaeda (The Phillipines are currently battling Abu Sayyaf, a wing of al Qaeda and Grabnet calls for the withdrawal of US forces in the Phillipines fighting Abu Sayyaf). Lean Meari, an anthropology PhD candidate from UC Davis who writes about suppression of Palestinian women, rounds out the panel. All three panelists only support women’s rights in terms of how they can be applied to making revolution.

Students of history know that The Muslim Brotherhood that metastasized into al Qaeda began on the University campuses of Egypt and the Middle East. Hamas , the Muslim Brotherhood in the Holy Land, grew on the university and college campuses built by the Israelis for the Palestinian population in the West Bank and Gaza. Now California taxpayers are funding an event and allowing space to what is in fact an ally of al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist groups at one of our major universities.

For UC Berkeley to have hosted an event praising a terrorist because she is an example of the capabilities of any woman to “make revolution” every bit as good as a man is disgraceful. The Khaled event needs to be seen for what it was: little more than a propaganda screed in praise of “resistance” and in support of terrorism against America, Israel and the West. At the same time, the Cal administration giving a pass to the disruption and threats against another Arab woman, Nonie Darwish, who spoke out against persecution of Arab women in the Middle East and against terrorism should give the California taxpayers pause as to where their tax dollars are going in what is supposed to be support of higher education.

HOW LAW IS BEING USED TO PROMOTE TERRORISM AND TOTALITARIANISM UNDER THE GUISE OF HUMAN RIGHTS

For Tel Aviv University law professor Neta Ziv, it’s all “academic” (even if it kills Jews and destroys Israel).
By Lee Kaplan

“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”—William Shakespeare, King Henry VI

According to her Curriculum Vitae, Neta Ziv is the director of The Cegla Clinical Law Programs at the University of Tel Aviv Law School. She is the academic supervisor of the Human Rights Clinic and teaches courses on Legal Ethics and the Legal Profession, Law and Social Change and Rights of People with Disabilities. Dr. Ziv received her LL.B. from the Hebrew University Law Faculty in 1983, and her LL.M. from The American University in Washington, DC in 1986. Dr. Ziv practiced as a public interest lawyer for the Association for Civil Rights in Israel between 1986-1996, and served as a leading attorney in some of Israel’s major human rights cases litigated before the Israeli Supreme Court. She continued her studies at Stanford Law School and received her J.S.D. in 2001. Dr. Ziv was among the founding members of the Israel Women’s Network Legal Center, the chair of Bizchut - The Israel Human Rights Center for People with Disabilities, and currently serves as a board member of "Itach - Women Lawyers for Social Justice". Dr. Ziv is a board member and Vice President of The New Israel Fund.

The last sentence of the above academic biography of Neta Ziv is very telling. The New Israel Fund is thought of by many American Jews as just another philanthropic organization to aid Israel. It is, in fact, an organization run by leftist Jews inspired by far-left American ideas. Few people, particularly American Jews, know how the New Israel Fund, working closely with another group, The Shefa Fund, has financed another leftist group that passed out flyers at Israeli train stations urging soldiers in the IDF to desert and promising them wages higher than their army wages while they sit in jail (Israel does not really pay salaries to its conscripts). As a board member of NIF, Professor Niv no doubt knew about this and condones it.

Professor Ziv is the embodiment of how the abstractions of academia can ultimately lead to the opposite of what the academy was meant to do: to enhance society through the application of scholastic study and scientific inquiry to arrive at truth. This is clearly present in her applications of American jurisprudence to Israel’s situation as a tiny democratic country surrounded by a sea of Arab nationalist and Islamic dictatorships calling for the state’s destruction. Ziv defines her activities as preserving human rights; others might define them as enabling the enemies of Israel to destroy the Jewish state. As an educator, she promotes developing what could be considered “cause lawyers” who use the courts to promote a radical agenda against the state in time of war.

To understand where Professor Ziv is coming from, it is important to understand how American law has molded a new generation of “activists” within Israel who claim to be promoting “social justice” (Why is it every totalitarian revolutionary movement likes to claim it is seeking “social justice”?). In reality, such activities only serve to embolden and strengthen Israel’s enemies. Whereas in America, one can throw a stone and almost count on hitting a lawyer because of that nation’s status as a superpower and peaceful civil society (at least before 9/11), Israel’s situation is considerably different.

Constitutional Law has always in particular played an almost constant role in the American quotidian. It is only recently though that the constant effects of law in American society has turned academic inquiry into another form of propaganda and even subversion to be used against the very democratic society that created it. In America, one can use law to promote a political agenda against the state. That is the role of “cause lawyers.”

For example, organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union that Ziv uses as a guide or ally to educate her law students in promoting her educational agenda are, in fact, not as interested in preserving human rights (although they claim to be) as in promoting a radical socialist political agenda that usually calls for Israel’s destruction. The ACLU was set up in the 1920’s as a pro-communist front group. Today, the ACLU has many lawyers who toe a party line against Israel. A case in point would be of a Coptic Christian who lost his job teaching courses about terrorism and Arabic language because Muslim extremists on his campus did not like what he taught. The man lost his job despite a contract and was not even paid. Whereas the local ACLU office (with a Jewish manager) agreed he had an excellent case, the Washington national headquarters nixed representing him when approval was sought from executives with Arab and radical leftist backgrounds. The Constitution did not apply to a Copt who taught about Arab Muslim terrorist groups.

A similar situation exists with the Center for Constitutional Rights in Washington, DC. Whereas one would expect an organization in the US Capitol with such a name to concern itself with the rights of Americans under the US Constitution, the CCR devoted a good deal of its time and efforts to trying to get Ariel Sharon tried for war crimes in the Hague or freeing the terrorist POWs in Guantanamo. What fewer people know is the CCR gets funding from the UAE where the finances for the 9/11 attacks came from. The UAE no doubt couldn’t care less about the US Constitution as much as rescuing the serial killers from the umma who were captured on the battlefields of Afghanistan while engaging in Holy Jihad.

Professor Ziv works with a program set up to train Israeli law students in “human rights” and social engineering activist tactics as an outcome of practicing law. Israeli law students are given an opportunity to clerk with American judges to learn the ropes. And rubbing elbows with mindsets like those described above to preserve “social justice,” as perverted as it may be, is the norm. But “Social justice” is what Neta Ziv says it is.

Not a bad thing, you might say? All points of view should be recognized in a democratic society? Well, maybe in a country like America with friendly neighbors on its borders and not in a perpetual state of war for 60 years with Arab irredentists. But Israel’s situation is different. If Professor Ziv applied her ideals equally to require that the Palestinian Authority, under license from the Israeli government to create a new state, not be ruled by Sharia Law, or that women be granted equal rights there as in Israel, one might consider her merely an idealist with strict principals. Unfortunately, those principals only apply to aiding those who would use the legal system as just another weapon to destroy the Jewish state and set up another Arab-Muslim dictatorship, but who try to maintain the image of American jurisprudence while doing so. Call it the “O.J. Simpson defense” for Arab terrorism against the Jews; where the bomb belt fails, a well-placed lawyer might do just as nicely, and the Arabs just love it!

A case in point is Noura Erekat, the niece of Saab Erekat and a recent law school graduate in the US, who is now also an aide to congressman Dennis Kucinich. Her involvement in the NGO, Protection of Human Rights (LAW), has been to promote the anti-Semitism witnessed at the Durban Conference against Israel as well as getting Israel’s leadership indicted for war crimes in the Hague while Arab terrorism goes unmentioned. She claims she is for a two state solution on television and practices some of her law/activism within Israel and the Holy Land. Yet in private, she calls for using the law to destroy Israel. Not long ago she refused on Bill O’Reilly’s show to condemn an al Qaeda call to murder all the Jews in the world, or condemn Hizballah. Israelis also know well the Gaby Laskys and Felicia Langers who never met a killer of Jews they didn’t want to defend on behalf of Israel’s communist party, and, as such, Professor Ziv assures that newer generations of Israeli lawyers will think in a similar vein as Lasky and Langer.

Professor Ziv is known for her advocacy within the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) that is funded by the New Israel Fund. While ACRI’s self-description on their website describes the organization as “Israel's leading human and civil rights organization and the only organization dealing with the entire spectrum of rights and liberties issues…” that “…has led the fight to protect and promote rights in Israel and the territories under its control through litigation, legal advocacy, education, and public outreach efforts. ACRI promotes a concept of civil and human rights as an integral part of democratic community building and as a unifying force in Israeli public life.”

What that description does not say is how Neta Ziv seems to feel human and civil rights do not apply to Jewish Israelis, only to Arabs, and particularly those ones with a desire to dispossess the Jews in Israel of the same property rights they like to constantly claim they are denied. To Neta Ziv, Jewish Israelis are the majority “oppressing” the Arab minority (there’s that old “social justice” mantra again). While it’s true there are more Jews in Israel behind the green line and in the territories than Arabs, the entire Arab and Muslim world that calls for the end of Israel’s existence numbers 250 million to Israel’s 4 million Jews. A case in point is the legal precedent set in the case of an Israeli Arab named Qa’ adan who wanted to reside in a community set aside by the Jewish agency for the settlement of Jews in Israel that was handled by Professor Niv’s cronies in the ACRI. It was argued that Qa’adan, an Israeli Arab citizen, was denied equal rights because he wanted a home in an exclusive Jewish community that was set aside for Jewish settlement. ACRI and its intellectual acolytes in the judiciary ruled that Qa’adan had the right to live there too. Whereas some would call the establishment of a neighborhood for Jews in a region where Jews have been murdered for two millennia might be considered Jewish “affirmative action” (social justice types in America love “affirmative action”), Professor Ziv considers it a denial of human and equal rights. Money talks when it comes to leasing land in Israel, so why didn’t Qa’adan ask some of his Arab oil brothers to do some affirmative action for him and other Israeli Arabs by providing enough money to buy property? After all, they spend untold amounts of money to pay for weapons to kill Jews.

For Ziv, such a lawsuit no doubt creates the image at American universities that she visits that she is on a par with civil rights attorneys who broke down Jim Crow laws in America (it’s a great image to land speaking gigs, sell books and get invited to swanky faculty soirees). However, there is a difference. Private communities in Israel have the right to reject people they do not want, be they Jew or Arab. The Arab village of Um El Fahem inside Israel has no Jewish residents also and the city government openly supports Hamas. Jews do not live there because after dark they would be killed. Professor Ziv saw no need to sue the Municipality of Um El Fahem to provide security protection for Jews to live there on an equal basis. Nor did she sue to stop the practice of certain private communities in Israel having the right to reject anyone they feel they do not want as part of that community if they so desire. That right is still in tact for the Arabs of Um El Fahem who claim Israeli Arabs are discriminated against, yet also know that if Jews did move into their community they could hire an attorney to sue the state that Jews were “occupying” their land (if murdering a few did not snip the problem in the bud).

Then again, why should they when there are enough Jews like Neta Ziv to attack the state through the courts and thus deny Jewish communities the right to become Jewish havens for the persecuted of the Diaspora and maintain the Jewish character of the state?

At the same time, Professor Ziv sees no problems with affirmative action programs in Israel that give preference at all the universities to Arab-Israelis over Jewish Israelis, even veterans from the IDF. Professor Ziv and her legal eagles for social engineering also consider themselves serving human needs by suing on behalf of Arabs in the territories, yet say nothing about the official policy of the Palestinian Authority making it a death sentence for an Arab to sell land to a Jew, and they are perfectly willing to ignore honor killings while badgering the Israeli government at full tilt over Jewish communities there, some like Kfar Etzion that were rebuilt in 1967 , after being wiped out by the Arabs in 1948. Most of the Jewish community there was murdered in an open pit (even after the Armistice was done). One might equate that return with the American Indians getting back their land from the US government, but Neta Ziv prefers to concentrate on what sells on American campuses and radical leftist circles inside Israel where her consumer base is (even if that base is ignorant of facts on the ground, since it’s all “academic”. College professors learn “what sells,” the same as other businessmen, and Arab petrodollars are buying a lot of propaganda against Israel on US campuses these days).
Most galling is how the ACRI works in cooperation with its Palestinian Arab counterpart, Adalah, that claims it, too, works for human and equal rights. One problem, though: while ACRI works against Israel’s tiny state even in the territories to help irredentist Arabs in their goals, Adalah doesn’t give a fig about equal rights for Jews in the territories or inside Israel itself. To Adalah, only Arabs have human and civil rights and Jews are there to only be accused of violating the rights of those Arabs. One of Adalah’s main functions is to provide free legal aid in Israeli courts for some of the worst mass murderers of Israeli Jews, including serial killer Marwan Barghouti. Arab terrorists are never representative of an oppressive majority to the Neta Ziv types against the Jews, but always are deserving of the best legal protection no matter how many Jewish women or children they murder.

And after all, why not? Neta Ziv sits in a safe office at the University of Tel Aviv many miles away in Sderot, hundreds of Kassem rockets fall on the heads of other people’s children. No doubt her academic way of seeing human rights as a one way street for the enemies of Jews in Israel makes her feel as judicially superior as the similarly safely nested jurists across the sea in the United States.
But what a pity for other Israelis who miss all the fun of being an intellectual and a lawyer like Neta Ziv, who can absorb and carry out such abstract legal thinking without paying the consequences with her own life.

In the future, more articles will be found here pointing out these individuals when they are on US campuses.

A POENTIAL NUCLEAR SABOTAGE ATTACK DETECTED?

Fermi declares
low-level emergency

By: Charles Slat Monroe News, Michigan story updated October 11. 2007 8:32PM

DTE finds holes drilled in Fermi safety system line.




DTE Energy declared a low-level emergency at its idled Fermi 2 nuclear plant Thursday after finding small holes that apparently were drilled into a steam line associated with a safety relief valve at the base of the reactor.
Plant officials said they don’t know how many holes exist, how they got there or whether they existed while the plant was operating.

The plant has been shut down for maintenance and refueling and the damage was discovered during routine inspections of the plant’s drywell, part of the system designed to contain radioactive steam and pressure during a rapid shutdown or accident at the plant.

After discovering the series of quarter-inch holes, the utility halted work in that area of the reactor and evacuated personnel so it could investigate the find.
"We don’t know why the holes were drilled in that location," said John J. Austerberry, a DTE spokesman.

"To facilitate a thorough inspection, we cleared all non-essential personnel from the drywell," he said.

He said it wasn’t clear whether the holes resulted from an error or might have been deliberate.

"We are conducting a vigorous and thorough investigation," he said. He said the holes were discovered during an equipment inspection designed to detect any abnormalities.

The utility declared an "unusual event," the lowest of four federal emergency classifications at nuclear plants, and notified federal, state and local officials of the discovery.

Mr. Austerberry said it was uncertain when the investigation would be completed.
He did not know if the discovery might somehow be related to a leaking valve that was discovered on a feedwater check line in the plant on Sunday. That also was reported to the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission because it could have affected safety systems if the plant was operating.
Fermi 2, an 1,100-megwatt boiling water reactor that began operating in 1988, was shut down about two weeks ago for a refueling and maintenance outage that is expected to take little more than a month.

CECILE SURASKY OF JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE LINKS TO AL AWDA/AMERICAN NAZI PARTY

I've written for the last four years that Jewish Voice for Peace is an Arab front group established to convince American Jews that they can still be good Jews but
advocate the destruction of the Jewish state. In the past, the JVOP newsletter has written that it is doubtful Jews ever lived in the Holy Land at all, and that the First Temple and Exodus from Egypt were myths. Also, claims that Jews in Israel are really descendents of Khazarians from southern Georgia in Russia were mentioned. These were some of the gems allegedly written by Mitchell Plitnick, the former head of the JVOP.

As the result of an audit of JVOP, Plitnick was downgraded from his position as head of JVOP and a new leader was brought in from the radical anti-Israel leftist front in Israel. Cecilie Surasky, Plitnick's replacement as mouthpiece for the JVOP started a blog titled Muzzlewatch, where she tried to present the image that Jews
who were less-than-supportive of Israel were being stifled in their freedom of speech.

Now new information comes out about Cecile Surasky. In 2004, Ms. Surasky wrote an editorial for the Al Awda-linked website Electronic Intifada, run by the former
webmaster for Bir Zeit University (stronghold for Hamas recruitment) named Nigel Parry.

Parry has accused me of fabricating half of what I write and insists that Al Awda has absolutely nothing to do with Electronic Intifada and vice versa. I have uncovered enough evidence and proof that it does, since two of the co-founders of Electronic Intifada, Arjan El-Fassed and Ali Abunimah are respectively a co-founder of Al Awda and leader of Al Awda. The source of this information?

Nigel Parry himself.

What is significant about Al Awda's links to Electronic Intifada and Cecilie Suransky of Jewish Vocie for Peace? Well, for one thing I've proven that Al Awda, besides being highly anti-Semitic and advocating for the total annihilation of Israel
also is allied with the American Nazi Party. It was this revelation that got the international Al Awda conference kicked off the UC Riverside campus about six months ago by me. Cecilie Surasky in 2004 did not just have a letter to the editor published on the Electronic Intifada website, she wrote an editorial, that is an official poistion for the website Electronic Intifada, part of the Al Awda/US Nazi Party collaboration against Israel and, by extension, all Jews.

We'll have a more detailed breakdown of all of this on my websites at StoptheISM.com
and DAFKA.org very soon. Bill Levinson, an expert researcher at Stop the ISM will also have the story on the Israpundit.com weblog soon too.

Ms. Surasky, you have been outted, not as a "Jew of conscience" against Israel, but as a shill for the anti-Semites and pro-Nazis in Al Awda and at Electronic Intifada.

Who do you think will probably replace you next at Jewish Voice for Peace?

A TERRORIST AMONGST US

ALI OMAR is a Fatah al-Islam terrorist currently attending the Fletcher Graduate School of International Studies at Tufts University in New England where he is majoring in Security Studies. The question is: WHY???? Does the FBI and State Department have no awareness of who this man is? Omar is a Captain in the Palestinian Security Services learning US security procedures at an American university when most of the Palestinian Security Services members are part of the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade, an FTO (Foreign Terrorist Group) per the US State Department. Omar is obviously getting a waiver to attend college here and learn our security procedures. The hacks in the US State Department no doubt think that if they teach a Palestinian Security Services captain our security procedures, he will use his knowledge to stop Palestinian terrorists from killing Israelis and Americans. But nothing could be further from the truth. Fatah al-Islam was recently in running gun battles with the Lebanese Army due to their support for and links with al Qaeda.

I first met Ali Omar at Georgetown's national Palestine Solidarity Movement conference (ISM) in 2005 where he was supervising the recruitment of human shields
by Huwaida Arraf from the back of the room to aid Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the PFLP, even more FTOs. You have to hand it to Arabists in the US State Department: teaching terrorist supporters our security procedures to fight terrorism is a novel idea. The question is how many people will die down the pike as a result of this idiocy? Check out the StoptheISM.com website for more details soon.

ON THE LOOKOUT FOR AN ISM ACTIVIST WITH A GUN

Check out the homepage of www.StoptheISM.com today for a photo of ISM activist Camille from Kentucky. It seems this ISM activist was recently sighted at the Faisal Youth Hostel, an ISM hangout in Jerusalem. If you know this woman or have seen her, please notify the Louisville office of the FBI and send them the photo of her with the AK-47 machine gun. For more info, see my article The ISM-Terror Connection:

MEXICAN ANARCHISTS STRIKE

I warned about this long ago on the Stop the ISM website at this link:
http://www.stoptheism.com/Default.asp?M=1&T=288
and now things are heating up....

True, it's not the ISM--yet. The ISM is just the propaganda, fundraising and human shield arm of the Palestinian, Ba'athist and Islamic terrorist movements in the US. But Mexican anarchists (La Voz de Aztlan and La Raza ((ISM allies))) teamed with US anarchists will be in the news within the next few years as the US builds its Security Fence like Israel has done. The two blasts below at the same time are not likely to be coincidence, but could harbinger coming events on the US-Mexican border;

Headline from AP:

37 die in Mexico truck blast; Vehicle was packed with explosives, police say; 150 people injured (The Associated Press)http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20689768/

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico - A truck carrying mining explosives blew up after colliding with another vehicle in northern Mexico, killing at least 37 people, including three reporters who had come to the scene, state and federal officials said. Soldiers, police, emergency officials, nearby residents and reporters were on the scene Sunday night when the a fire broke out and the truck filled with explosives went off, according to Luis Horacio de Hoyos of the Coahuila state Attorney General’s Office. The explosion occurred near the town of Sacramento . Maximo Alberto Neri Lopez, a federal police official, said 37 people were killed and 150 were injured. He said the explosion left a 10-by-40 foot crater in the concrete. De Hoyos said three newspaper reporters from the city of Monclova were among the dead.

And at the same time...

Mexican oil firm reports pipeline explosions; State-run Pemex says blasts were likely sabotage; 12,000 evacuated

(Associated Press reports)

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20689755/

MEXICO CITY - Several explosions believed to the work of result of sabotage ripped apart pipelines for Mexico's state oil monopoly early Monday, the company said. There were no injuries. The Mexican state oil monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex, issued a statement saying it believed the explosions, which forced the evacuation of 12,000 people, were deliberate. A small, left-wing guerrilla group claimed to have attacked a major Pemex gas pipeline in July and at least a dozen major companies, including Honda Motor Co., Kellogg Co. and The Hershey Co., were forced to suspend or scale back operations. The July explosions affected different sections of a major pipeline extending from central Mexico City to Guadalajara , the industry-rich capital of the western state of Jalisco...

Meanwhile, let's let them use our colleges for taxpayer-supported planning and strategy sessions as was just done at George Mason U.

When are people going to wake up?

US CAMPAIGN'S GEORGE MASON U EVENT A BUST IN TERMS OF TURNOUT

At least there's some good news...

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an ISM-inspired event just held last weekend at George Mason U. in Virginia, apparently was a bust in terms of attendees.
According to the campus paper, the Broadside, there were only about 50 attendees. The
Broadside reporter states he can't be sure of the real number because the press, as usual, was not allowed into the event on Saturday and Sunday because the public might learn what the little anti-Semitic wannabe revolutionaries were really planning inside. As usual, the leadership lied and claimed that "thousands" had attended their previous conferences at Berkeley, U Mich, Ohio State and Duke when the ISM never fielded more than 500 at its peak in 2003. At Gerogetown, the last conference, the numebers were closer to 250 and they whined that their numebrs are dwindling as some of their campus activists grow up, graduate and leave. In fact, its also likely that constant exposure of what they are really all about is causing their recuritment to decline. Now they are trying to lobby congress directly so write your congressman and warn about them, because I can tell you from experience, half of congress hasn't got a clue what these creeps are really all about when they lie and claim they are "peace activists." They ahve enough Marxist Jewish quislings among them as well like Josh Ruebner and the Jewish Voice for Peace front group to let some 22 year-old congressional aids think they aren't the virulent anti-Semites they really are.

Nevertheless, any meeting on public university campuses (or private that get taxpayer funds and aid) by these subversives should not be allowed. It's not about freedom of speech, it's about supporting an arm of the terrorists overseas in terms of fundraising, logistical aid and setting up an infrastructure in America for groups.

It's also about hatred of Jews becoming all the more common and acceptable on US campuses. The fact is, Noura Erekat, one of the main organizers of the US Campaign,
even refused to condemn a call by bin Laden for Muslims in America to go to the Middle East to kill Jews when asked about it by Bill O'Reilly on his show. The video is viewable on the homepage at StopISM.com . The support by these people, particularly Huwaida Arraf, for terrorist groups is known to our government security agencies yet they are commanded from the top to look the other way in some delusional idea of "peace" between the terrorists murdering Jews and the rest of the world. Jews, aka Israelis, are expendable in the Bush Administration's geopolitical view.

Let's face it: the Bush Administration differentiates al Qaeda terrorism against the US from Hamas terrorism against Jews in Israel. Our president, who kisses Saudi potentates on the mouth and fawns over them has consistently looked the other way at Saudi funding of Hamas and Hizballah terrorists that keep the war roiling against Israel. What few people realize, is Saudi funding and cooperation with terrorists also has killed our boys in Iraq. The present trial of the Holyland Foundation talks about their funding Hamas, but it was the links to al Qaeda that finally got the government to move. The proof in the pudding will be if CAIR is ultimately closed down by this administration which is seeming less likely every day.

Imagine if in World War II Franklin Roosevelt did business with the Nazis, and, while sending weapons and aid to Britain to fight fascism, looked the other way
at Nazi attacks on the British in North africa and the Middle East and even ignored promotional activities in favor of Rommel's campaign there at America unviersities and you get a picture of the disconnect this administration has in the War on Terror.

Thusfar, the Gulf Sheiks, especialy the UAE seems to have their hooks into Washington woith petrodollars. The only presidentail candidate I see on the horizon
who might pull America out of this mess is Rudy Giuliani, yet even he spent some time in theUAE rubbing elbows with the Zayed family. At least Rudy handed Hamas financier Sheik Alwaleed bin Talal back his filthy check after 9/11. Giuliani's position papers on Israel and his views on really dealing with terrorists for what they are has my vote.

Who knows? WIth the mans seeming integrity, maybe the US government will finally go after the ISM leadership for violating anti-terrorism laws and passport fraud.

More on Geroge Mason's spineless allowing another Jew Hate fest on a US campus later...

ISRAEL'S JUDICIARY PLAYS A DANGEROUS GAME

Fighting With Both Hands Tied Behind Your Back


by Lee Kaplan, Israel National News, Sept. 9, 2007

Courts in Israel allow a dangerous game to go on.





Watch this video then read the article below:


http://www.youtube.com/v/o1ZmAYL6O7s







The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is kvelling over the Israeli Supreme Court decision to move the security fence in Bilin after a two-and-a-half-year court case. After fomenting riots among the local Arabs on a weekly basis in coordination with the terrorist organizations they act as human shields for, like Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the PFLP, the ISM demonstrated that violence pays. They showed that, with one well-paid communist lawyer and a lot of noise, an Israeli court can once again be persuaded to hand down an ultimate death sentence on the country.


Israel is a modern, vibrant, civil society and democracy. As such, it is run by rule of law and, thus, lawyers wield considerable influence. The Palestinian Authority is a civil society also, but only for Arabs; that is, terrorists who attack Jews, or Arabs who claim that legally deeded land in Judea and Samaria that belongs to Jews is theirs, are not subject to arrest or prosecution. Just imagine if a Jewish community attempted to hire an Arab attorney to defend its rights in a PA courtroom. The outcome would be obvious.


Judges are lawyers with ultimate power in a civil society. In the courtroom, they wield absolute power. As civil human beings, they think civilly: not a cross word is allowed; arguments on both sides are to be heard; then the judge calls the shots. The judge, in turn, has the protection of burly bailiffs for protection if someone tries to disrupt the civil discourse. He or she needn't get his or her hands dirty.



George Orwell summed it up best when he said, "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." Such is the case when it comes to Israel's judiciary and leadership and how their decisions impact their own protectors, the Border Police and the IDF, in hearing cases of state policy pertaining to Judea and Samaria.


The judiciary in Israel operates on the assumption that those bringing suit in an Israeli court are as civil-minded as they are, even when they are not. The other side is making war on Israel's existence in any way possible. If the court does not decide in their favor, they will resort to murder and mayhem to achieve their ends. The court is merely one angle, a formality to try and bring about the same outcome as the violence. Meanwhile, the civil judiciary conducts itself like an ostrich with its head in the sand.

How else to explain the fact that, after six years, the ISM still operates as a terrorist support front group whose goal is the dismantling of the Jewish state? Judges in Israel do not comprehend the new type of war strategy of binging international anarchists and communists into Israel to act as human shields and supplement the work of the terrorist movements through propaganda abroad and at home, and through outright violent civil disobedience that the ISM then tells the world was nonviolent.






The ISM will tell Americans and Europeans that Palestinian Arabs are being attacked mercilessly by Jewish "settlers" simply for trying to harvest their produce or for working on their own land. In fact, the ISM, armed with cameras, with trained provocateurs and professional anarchists from American universities, goes onto property owned by Jewish communities with an Arab in tow, and steals the produce (olives for example) off the trees that belong to the Jewish community. When the Israelis show up to protect their property, the ISM then claims the Arabs were attacked for no reason at all by Jews.



Such was the case with a senior citizen at a Jewish community. The ISM showed up on property belonging to the settlers and started "harvesting." As in a civil society, the police were called by the settlement. While the police tried to muddle over if the Arab's phony claim that the land he was working on with the support of the ISM was, in fact, not really his as he claimed, two ISM anarchists, one British, the other one French, and a colleague with a video camera attempted to get past the actual gates of the settlement. The man at the gate refused them entry - for good reason. They set him up so when he shooed one away, another would try to breach the gate. In frustration he grabbed a stick to ward them off.



The police arrested the guard for assault, as one would do in a civilized society. Meanwhile, the three ISM activists had a new propaganda video claiming they are "human rights workers" to show over the Internet to demonstrate the "terrorism" of religious Jewish settlers against innocent Arabs. It will be interesting to see how the Israeli courts adjudicate this man's case. (See the video here.)


"Human rights workers" indeed. These are anarchists, and their intent is to lie and do harm in any way they can.


The Arabs have a good deal. The internationals from the ISM will stand between them and the legal property owners and provoke them. The Israeli courts and government are more concerned about international incidents than the property rights of Jews; so when someone from a settlement attempts to protect his property prior to the police arriving, the ISM and Arabs can then claim they were assaulted. The civil society in Israel will let the Arabs, and even the ISM foreigners, pursue legal action against the real victim. It's a big joke to them.


The ISM training manuals discuss how simple it is for internationals to get arrested, because they can only be deported. These are anarchists, and their intent is to lie and do harm in any way they can. They are released by the courts right away, then immediately go back to what they are doing. In cases where a deportation is ordered by the courts, the manuals tell the ISM activists to refuse deportation by threatening to disrupt the flight. In some cases, this has worked to even let ISMers stay in the country


The "rough men in the night" of the Border Police, the Shin Bet and the IDF know the truth about the ISM. But it's the courts in Israel that allow this dangerous game to continue. Imagine if the US allowed communists and anarchists from around the world to converge on US soil and interfere with the police and security agencies during the Cold War and use American courts to promote Soviet causes. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? Yet, that is what is now going on in Israel with the assistance of Israel's civil judiciary.

The same ISM activist who pelted Natan Sharansky with a pie in New Jersey held a seminar in the US where he explained everything the ISM is doing in the West Bank and Gaza is training for anarchists and communists to eventually bring it to the US when Israel is gone. Watch what happens when America starts building its own security fence on the Mexican border. The ISM has already sent out emails they intend to do the same to American border police and the authorities.


Wake up, Israel! Your country is being used as a guinea pig by those who would destroy you and your own civility may be your undoing. The courts in Israel are so unaware of this that they are being played as fools.

George Mason Conference this weekend violates US Tax laws

Should Education for Just Peace in the Middle East be Tax Exempt?

by Bill Levinson

Education for Just Peace in the Middle East is the parent organization of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. As we showed recently, it is trying to orchestrate an international boycott of Israel. Our understanding of the anti-boycott laws are that an organized boycott of any nation friendly to the United States is illegal if it is done in cooperation with a foreign government. (It’s not illegal to boycott any country or business on your own, and we try to avoid buying anything made in China. Only if one coordinates or cooperates with a foreign government do legal problems seem to arise.) We encourage anyone who attends the 6th Annual National Organizers’ Conference at George Mason University to obtain hard evidence of any such cooperation, assuming that it is indeed taking place. We will then forward it, along with a copy of the Web page displayed below, to the appropriate places. Continue reading this article »« Fold this article up



We are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice, but we can provide a link to what the U.S. Government has to say. Note that Education for Just Peace is a corporate “person.”

Objectives:

The antiboycott laws were adopted to encourage, and in specified cases, require U.S. firms to refuse to participate in foreign boycotts that the United States does not sanction. They have the effect of preventing U.S. firms from being used to implement foreign policies of other nations which run counter to U.S. policy.

Primary Impact:

The Arab League boycott of Israel is the principal foreign economic boycott that U.S. companies must be concerned with today. The antiboycott laws, however, apply to all boycotts imposed by foreign countries that are unsanctioned by the United States.

Who Is Covered by the Laws?

The antiboycott provisions of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) apply to all “U.S. persons,” defined to include individuals and companies located in the United States and their foreign affiliates. These persons are subject to the law when their activities relate to the sale, purchase, or transfer of goods or services (including information) within the United States or between the U.S. and a foreign country. This covers U.S. exports and imports, financing, forwarding and shipping, and certain other transactions that may take place wholly offshore.

Generally, the TRA applies to all U.S. taxpayers (and their related companies). The TRA’s reporting requirements apply to taxpayers’ “operations” in, with, or related to boycotting countries or their nationals. Its penalties apply to those taxpayers with foreign tax credit, foreign subsidiary deferral, FSC (Foreign Sales Corporation), and IC-DISC (Interest Charge-Domestic International Sales Corporation) benefits.

What do the Laws Prohibit?

Conduct that may be penalized under the TRA and/or prohibited under the EAR includes:

* Agreements to refuse or actual refusal to do business with or in Israel or with blacklisted companies.
* Agreements to discriminate or actual discrimination against other persons based on race, religion, sex, national origin or nationality.
* Agreements to furnish or actual furnishing of information about business relationships with or in Israel or with blacklisted companies.
* Agreements to furnish or actual furnishing of information about the race, religion, sex, or national origin of another person.

Implementing letters of credit containing prohibited boycott terms or conditions.

The TRA does not “prohibit” conduct, but denies tax benefits (”penalizes”) for certain types of boycott-related agreements.

Restrictive Trade Practices or Boycotts

§760.2
PROHIBITIONS
(a) Refusals to do business
PROHIBITION AGAINST REFUSALS TO DO BUSINESS
(1) No United States person may: refuse, knowingly agree to refuse, require any other person to refuse, or knowingly agree to require any other person to refuse, to do business with or in a boycotted country, with any business concern organized under the laws of a boycotted country, with any national or resident of a boycotted country, or with any other person, when such refusal is pursuant to an agreement with the boycotting country, or a requirement of the boycotting country, or a request from or on behalf of the boycotting country.

It looks like what we need to do is obtain evidence (if such evidence actually exists, and that is what we are asking our friends to look for) that Education for Just Peace in the Middle East is cooperating with a foreign government–and steering committee member Huwaida Arraf has said in a letter to the editor that the International Solidarity Movement has contacts with Hamas, a hostile foreign “government.” In addition, any person, corporate or otherwise, that is thinking about cooperating with the “international boycott of Israel” should be cognizant of the following.

(4) A United States person’s use of either a boycott-based list of persons with whom he will not deal (a so-called “blacklist”) or a boycott-based list of persons with whom he will deal (a so-called “whitelist”) constitutes a refusal to do business.

Furthermore,

U.S. persons are reminded that requests that are on their face boycott-related or that are for action obviously in furtherance or support of an unsanctioned foreign boycott are subject to the Regulations, irrespective of the country or origin. For example, requests containing references to “blacklisted companies”, “Israel boycott list”, “non-Israeli goods” or other phrases or words indicating boycott purpose would be subject to the appropriate provisions of the Department’s antiboycott regulations.

In addition, we need to examine Education for Just Peace’s discussions of civil disobedience. Do these rise to the level necessary to disqualify the group from being tax exempt according to Rev Rule 75-384, “ACTIVITIES THAT ARE ILLEGAL OR CONTRARY TO PUBLIC POLICY?” This IRS rule says,

Not only is the actual conduct of illegal activities inconsistent with exemption, but the planning and sponsoring of such activities are also incompatible with charity and social welfare. Rev.Rul.75-384 holds that an organization formed to promote world peace that planned and sponsored protest demonstrations at which members were urged to commit acts of civil disobedience did not qualify for IRC 501(c)(3) or (4) exemption. G.C.M.36153, dated January 31,1975, states that because planning and sponsoring illegal acts are in themselves inconsistent with charity and social welfare it is not necessary to determine whether illegal acts were, in fact, committed in connection with the resulting demonstrations or whether such a determination can be made prior to conviction of an accused. However, it is necessary to establish that the planning and sponsorship are attributable to the organization, if exemption is to be denied or revoked on this ground.

Education for Just Peace has, as far as we know, not orchestrated any acts of civil disobedience directly the way the Muslim-American Society has, but there is plenty of material on its Web site that discusses civil disobedience.

http://endtheoccupation.org/article.php?list=type&type=80&printsafe=1

Civil Disobedience

Civil disobedience is non-violent direct action that could end in arrest.

• Common forms of civil disobedience are sit-ins or administrative “take overs.” Before you plan any civil disobedience be sure that you have chosen a date, event and action that are noteworthy. Each person participating in the action should have a “support person” who will be responsible for taking care of school, work, family, and media issues for them. Have a media team that will not be participating in the “arrestable” part of the action send out a press release right before it happens and then run video tapes and press statements to news channels afterwards. Contact the media. Establish channels to get the word out about civil disobedience and possible arrest ahead of time (i.e. e-mail lists or phone trees) and provide phone/fax numbers of City Council and the police department for concerned individuals to call and demand you be treated fairly and released. Be sure to select members of your group that are not participating in the action to advocate for you among the student body and be in charge of media.

• Get trained. Before participating in civil disobedience it will be important to be properly trained. There are a number of organizations that provide free or inexpensive non-violent resistance training. It is also essential that everyone participating in the action has agreed on what you are going to do- play out different scenarios and decide what your collective response will be in the different situations. When one person acts out in the moment, everyone’s safety is compromised. Role-playing and practice is important. So is keeping things confidential so that the police won’t find out ahead of time and show up before you do.

These are a few groups that give trainings. They will also be able to point you to more training opportunities or groups in you area . . .

www.trainingforchange.org
www.nonviolenceinternational.net/datr.html
www.ruckus.org

• Be smart. Before participating or planning civil disobedience get in contact with a lawyer at the National Layers Guild or the American Civil Liberties Union to know your rights and what you or members of your group are getting into. Check Out: www.aclu.org, www.nlg.org, and www.midnightspecial.net. Before your action, decide together what you will or will not say to the police if you get arrested- the police are legally allowed to lie in order to manipulate people so get your stories straight with each other.

http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=1251

Depending on the position of your Members of Congress, local organizers should decide whether a protest, vigil, meeting, or nonviolent civil disobedience is the most effective way to express opposition to U.S. support for Israel’s attacks.

The latter does not, however, mean that Education for Just Peace in the Middle East has actually orchestrated an act of civil disobedience, which is probably what is needed to challenge its 501(c)(3) tax exemption. If any of our friends can provide evidence that US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation has orchestrated or planned acts of civil disobedience, please send it to us and/or

Internal Revenue Service
Exempt Organizations Examination Division
1100 Commerce Street
ATTN: SE:T:EO:E
Dallas, TX 75242

(Be sure to mention that Education for Just Peace in the Middle East is the actual corporate entity.) Meanwhile, the following looks interesting:
http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=1142. This is the same conference that will be taking place at George Mason University this week:

Conference Report
4th Annual National Organizers’ Conference

US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation
July 29—August 1, 2005, Atlanta, GA

Civil Disobedience: There were many suggestions, either as direct confrontation with CAT, or as part of a campaign to boycott/divest. In addition to sit-ins, etc. some ideas were encampments on the lawns of CAT board members, blocking work at construction sites using CAT equipment, sit-ins in CAT corporate offices, continuous autonomous actions in Peoria, etc.

Boycotts and divestment: It was felt that we should work for CAT-free-zones all over the country, pushing boycotts and/or divestment on every entity that builds/owns stock. There was also support for approaching Arab and Muslim contractors here and abroad, as well as the Arab League and various governments to boycott CAT equipment. These boycotts should also include CAT clothing lines.

Any attorneys want to weigh in on whether the above statement could be construed as attempting to orchestrate boycott activities in cooperation with the Arab League?

TWO ARAB EXCHANGE STUDENTS ARRESTED IN FLORIDA WITH BOMB MATERIALS

IF anyone needs confirmation our collees ae being sued as part of a subversive movement to help al Qaeda attack the US, this report from Steve Emersons Investigative Project should remove all doubts:

Video: http://www.investigativeproject.org:80/article/427
Transcri0pt below:

BILL HEMMER: The author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us is Steve Emerson, terrorism analyst, with me now. Sir, welcome back here.



How much do you know about this group? How lethal are they?



STEVE EMERSON: Well, the Islamic Jihad Union (IJU) is an offshoot of the group that you just mentioned, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU). This group, in particular, that the Germans are looking for seems to be almost a brand new group – it’s been in existence, but it really hasn’t carried out that many operations in the West; it has been more active in Pakistan.



HEMMER: Steve, what could they have done with these chemicals?



EMERSON: Well, considering that these chemicals were 100 times more powerful than the bomb that blew up the July 5, 05 – July 7, 05 attacks in the London subways, these could have been absolutely devastating. They were designed to carry out maximum damage if they were implanted in suicide car bombs at Ramstein Air Force Base, at clubs, at restaurants, or even at Frankfurt Airport – it could have destroyed major aircraft, it could have destroyed large parts of the Air Base, it could have killed hundreds of people. They knew what they were doing because they had obtained military-type detonators that could have easily detonated the hydrogen peroxide once it was mixed with another chemical.



HEMMER: Well, the Germans are saying they were motivated to kill as many Americans as they could, specifically at the airport – at the Ramstein Air Base where at least 45,000 Americans make a living and live there as well.



Do the Germans have any idea how deep rooted this cell might be in its own country – how many terrorists might be there living?



EMERSON: I think that they do not know. They say there are as many as 900 radical Islamic terrorists living in Germany today that are under investigation. Those are the ones that they do know. But this one – this particular cell, of which they arrested 3, had as many as 10 other members that they have not identified publicly yet – of which some of whom are in Germany , some of whom are not.



HEMMER: Now Steve, we have seen in the past where these news reports are kept quiet until all the people have been surrounded and arrested.

Did the Germans go public with this too soon, knowing that at least 5, or maybe 10, are still out there?



EMERSON: You know, that’s a good question. My suspicion is that GSG-9, which is the group – the German anti-terrorist group – moved because they feared they were getting close to actually detonating the bombs and they might have feared that there were others involved, of which they did not identify, that could have been useful to the plot, in which case they would have lost control. So I think they took it to the maximum point possible without jeopardizing the security of Ramstein or Frankfurt Airport.



HEMMER: Steve Emerson, thank you for your time – live in Tel Aviv today.

click here to watch the video or copy and paste the following link into your web browser: http://www.investigativeproject.org/article/435



TAMRON HALL: Steve Emerson is a terrorism expert. He joins us now to talk more about this.


Thanks for joining us, Steve.


STEVE EMERSON: Hi.


HALL: Well, you know, as we consider the recent threats against Americans, can people at home feel secure?


EMERSON: I think on the homeland they can feel secure. I mean, look, there's no guarantee that a terrorist attack won't occur but considering the fact that we've gone six years without an attack and that virtually every single potential attack has been averted through FBI infiltration of the cells operating in the United States, it means the FBI is still batting a thousand – and I give them a lot of credit for that.

And I think there are other mistakes that have been made – obviously we're going to talk about the new GAO report, but I think in general the American public can feel a lot more secure than they did, let's say, even three years ago.


HALL: It’s interesting, yesterday Michael Chertoff, the head, of course, of the Homeland Security, said we are safer in this post 9/11 era. It would seem a difficult question to answer, but do you believe that that is true?


EMERSON: We're safer but we're not safe. And this comes in a contradictory development – sort of a paradox. As new homegrown radical Islamic cells develop – we saw what happened in Copenhagen just five days ago, what happened in Germany yesterday, and, of course, what happened at Fort Dix and a JFK plot just about a month ago. So, there are definite cells that are developing in the United States still trying to carry out jihad. I know the FBI is onto other potential cells. Of course they can't talk about it, but they have managed to infiltrate them and that's a great thing.


HALL: And of course, people at home know that this is a different time – if you go to the airport, you know that the instant that you walk through the door. Do you feel the agencies – from the FBI, the CIA, and even to air travel – have taken the necessary measures needed to fight terrorism?


EMERSON: You know, it's hard to say because, you know, if there's overly cautious efforts to do secondary inspections at the airports, people complain about that. On the other hand, if you are too lax and you go through too easily, you might feel good about it going through it very fast, but it doesn't really [UI] well for tight security.

Airports continue to be the number one area for targets – either the airports themselves, and we saw JFK, Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, and of course we've seen other efforts at airports around the world. So those continue to be the – one of the number one target attacks by terrorists.


HALL: Well, I've got to ask you also, with the incident that happened in Germany, many people every year when 9/11 approaches worry that, you know, the jihadists out there and those who want to harm Americans look at 9/11 as an inspiration date. You know, let's make something happen on that date. I would imagine security in and around 9/11 is the highest. But do you think that it's still like – I don’t want to use the word Holy Grail, but for lack of a better description, that it’s the Holy Grail for many of these jihadists?


EMERSON: I think that it has become a challenge for them to basically pierce the veil of security that the West has claimed it has been able to create after 9/11 in protecting airports and protecting airliners from being hijacked or being used as suicide bombs. So I think that date does pose a challenge for jihadists. Not necessarily would it be al Qaeda, but it would be al Qaeda-inspired terrorists who say, “aha, let's see if we can really try to strike fear in the hearts of the infidels on the very day that we did it six years ago.”


HALL: Well Steve, you mentioned earlier the reports that are coming out and some of the information that shows that maybe we're not as far along as we need to be – particularly the GAO report outlined some of the problems that still exist prior to 9/11 and that exist right now. What most concerns you out of this report, particularly the GAO report?


EMERSON: Well, I have not read the report. I've only read the stories that have come out about the report, so I want to basically admit that I'm speaking only about the facts that have been reported. And it suggests that only half – less than half of the 178 objectives have been met, which means that we're batting less than .500.

Now, the question really is, what about the reality of those objectives? Are those real objectives? Are they necessary objectives? You know, one of the criticisms I had of the 9/11 Report was that they set these standards to be met that obviously, I think, were irrelevant to the real cause of fighting terrorism. They didn't really – I don't think they met reality standards. And I think, possibly, we have the same problem here.
You're always going to have bureaucratic standards that cannot be met. This is an agency, DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, that meshed together 22 different agencies with 220,000 people with very different cultures and bureaucratic standards, and to try to get them to mingle and talk to one another is almost an impossible task. It's been done somewhat, but not done enough.


HALL: Alright, Steve, thank you so much for joining us with your insights.

SEE THE REAL FACE OF THE ISM AND ITS LIES: WATCH THIS VIDEO

Anyone who has ever doubted my credibility about the ISM must watch this video:

http://www.youtube.com/v/o1ZmAYL6O7s

Then show check out all the photos of ISMers with guns in my article at

www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=24377

Both of these articles show the true face behind the Anna Baltzers, the Huwaida Arrafs, the Josh Ruebners and all the ISM anarchists and other creeps threatening
democracy and making the middle east conflict roil on forever for the terrorist groups while these ISM creeps are calling themselves "peace activists."

Spread this video and my article far and wide. Note in the opening scene the young boy holds a Hizballah flag. The same Hizballah that murdered 241 marines in Beirut in 1983. This will give you persepctive behind the ISM and who they work to enable.

A REPLY TO THE US CAMPAIGN TO END THE ISRAELI OCUPATION'S "CEASE AND DESIST" LETTER

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation recently sent me a
"cease and desist" letter due to my exposure of them as part of
the ISM and how they will be holding another Jew hatefest at
George Mason University. You can read their letter at:
http://www.endtheoccupation.org/downloads/responsetoleekaplanarticle.pdf

Below is my response:

US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

P.O. Box 21539

Washington, DC 20009


RE: “Your cease and desist” letter:



Dear Sirs:



The article of mine, that appeared on The American Thinker web log, "George Mason University to Host Next ISM Conference” (http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/07/george_mason_university_to_hos.html) that the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation refers to, as written, is neither inaccurate nor defamatory, unless you consider the activities of your organization as defaming itself. I, on the other hand, consider your letter as a threat and attempt at intimidation to my rights of free speech.

The American people are not fools, but certain organizations do seek to fool them. When an organization such as yours presents itself as seeking “peace” but in fact supports and works closely with myriad organizations that openly advocate for war on and the destruction of the democratic and pluralistic state of Israel, I feel it is my journalistic duty to alert the public to these events.



Your claims notwithstanding on your website that you only seek to end the “occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem” are belied by both your organization’s actions, as well as the actions and admitted positions of your own representative leadership and close affiliates as I will expose in this letter. I submit that your leadership and organization are guilty of something known as “lying by omission,” or leaving out just enough information to convey a false impression while presenting a kernel of truth in a statement. In this regard, the authors of your letter, particularly Mr. Ruebner, do not mention they support unconditionally the Arab “Right of Return” in addition to the creation of a Palestinian state, a concept whereby 5 million Arabs would be allowed to move within Israel’s 1949 borders so as to demographically overrun the Jewish population and dismantle the state. You can read more about Mr. Ruebner here:

(http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2111 ).

Responding to your bullet points:



Bullet point number 1:



You take issue with the statement that the International Solidarity Movement is “scheduling” your conference.



According to the personal explanation of Adam Shapiro, who Lee Kaplan personally interviewed at the 2003 Ohio State Divestment Conference and the husband of your chosen leader, Huwaida Arraf, both of whom are co-founders of the ISM, The International Solidarity Movement is the name used by the Palestine Solidarity Movement (PSM) when it operates in the West Bank and Gaza and is comprised of myriad anti-Israel groups (one of which is yours). The ISM and PSM are not official groups or corporations, but represent all of these groups working in unison-“solidarity” toward a common goal in opposing Israel’s existence as a Jewish state and replacing it with Arab-dominated “Palestine.” Among these groups are many who call themselves ISM, but also groups such as Al Awda, SUSTAIN, Students for Justice in Palestine, Women In Black, as well as the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.



Shapiro explained that the ISM is an umbrella organization. As such, if one segment is closed down by the authorities, the others can continue operating. In addition, if one arm of the umbrella makes statements such as was done by Charlotte Kates (See: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=944)
who I believe is affiliated with your organization as well, and who stated that Israeli children are “fair game” for terrorist attacks, the others can deny she speaks for them. Hence, the fact this conference is an organizational meeting of the multiple layers of leadership of the ISM, be it under the name US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation or not, it is still an ISM organizational meeting according to the attendees. In fact, you bill it as a National Organizer’s Conference meeting in solidarity to promote divestment against Israel, an ISM program.



By your own admission in your letter, your elected leader and President is in fact a self-admitted co-founder and current leader of the ISM, Huwaida Arraf, who has admitted she works in cooperation with Hamas. The Hamas charter calls for the annihilation of Israel as a Jewish state and the expulsion of all Jews from what is today the state of Israel. See: http://www.mideastweb.org/hamas.htm .

Nice company you keep.

Other individuals who belong to the ISM, yet curiously are also listed as members-at-large in your organization include Ms. Kates, Abe Greenhouse, Joseph Carr and others who have been exposed as higher level activists within the ISM.

Regarding earlier conferences held by your organization: (See: http://www.adl.org/Israel/israel_protest_calendar_2004.asp )



From an announcement of a conference held by your organization in Kansas City, Mo.

Saturday, November 13, 2004 - University of Missouri--Kansas City, Missouri
Regional Conference to “End the Occupation”

Sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to the End the Occupation and the International Solidarity Movement .

Background:

Citizens for Justice in the Middle East, a regional anti-Israel group based at the University of Missouri—Kansas City, is bringing the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, the International Solidarity Movement and other anti-Israel activists together for a regional conference devoted to changing U.S. policy toward Israel. The event will feature speakers who support divestment from Israel, the elimination of U.S. aid to Israel and contesting Israeli security measures. Notable speakers include Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies, Huwaida Arraf of ISM and the U.S. Campaign’s Josh Ruebner.



I note the following statement from your own website about your first conference (see:

http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=29 ):



“Coordinating with the work of the ISM…” An activity your organization has done
since its alleged inception per your website.



Following are some of the activities of the ISM with whom you “coordinate”:



(1) The ISM says openly that it has direct contacts with Foreign
Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) as defined by the U.S. State Department
(2) The ISM says openly that it recruits American college students in
the hope of getting them hurt or killed in confrontations with Israeli
military forces, for propaganda purposes (e.g. Rachel Corrie).
(3) An ISM affiliate (Al-Awda) have allegedly solicited acts of
terroristic violence on the Internet: specifically the suicide bombing
of Ariel Sharon's hospital room.
(4) The ISM has provided "safe house" assistance for actual terrorists.

(1) The International Solidarity Movement has direct contacts with
Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other terrorists. We direct your
attention to "Huwaida Arraf" on the Steering Committee of U.S. Campaign
to End the Occupation. Note that this is from their own Web site.

http://www.endtheoccupation.org/downloads/2006conferencereport.pdf says,

Current Steering Committee members of the US Campaign, followed by the
year in which their terms end, are:
* Huwaida Arraf (2007) - International Solidarity Movement
* Phyllis Bennis (2009) - Institute for Policy Studies
* Felicia Eaves (2009) - Black Voices for Peace
================================
Now we have Huwaida Arraf's letter to the Washington Post (February 2007)
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/02/16/AR2006021602027_2.html

Eric Adler and Jack Langer disparaged the
International Solidarity Movement(ISM),a movement
that I co-founded in the spring of 2001
in the occupied territories of the West Bank,
the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem to help draw
attention to the human rights abuses suffered by
Palestinians as a result of Israel's occupation.
The ISM also is a resource for Palestinian nonviolent
resistance to the occupation. The ISM believes that
average civilians can bring about change, and it tries
to unite Palestinians, Israelis and other people in
nonviolent resistance to Israel's occupation policies.

When I "acknowledged" that the ISM
"cooperates with Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad
and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine,"
I was offering concrete examples of the ways
in which these groups were engaging in nonviolent resistance.

Both the ISM and the Palestine Solidarity Movement
advocate nonviolent resistance to Israel's human rights abuses
-- the ISM through organized action in the occupied territories
and the PSM by promoting international divestment from
companies that profit from occupation.

HUWAIDA ARRAF

Washington
====================================

(2) The International Solidarity Movement recruits
American college students for the purpose of getting
them hurt or killed in confrontations with the
Israeli Defense Forces. This is what happened to
Evergreen College student Rachel Corrie in
March 2003. Two ISM members stated openly that
they had a motive for wanting her dead. While GMU
students are legal adults, is this an activity to
which GMU really wants to expose them?

http://www.standwithus.com/news_post.asp?NPI=85
"Recently, the Director of the Solidarity Movement,
George Rishmawi, explained to the San Francisco Chronicle
that the recruitment of American student volunteers
is useful to the Palestinian Movement because
'if some of these foreign volunteers get shot or
even killed, then the international media will
sit up and take notice.'"

Joseph Smith, a.k.a. Joseph Carr, who was present
when Corrie died, and whose highest priority was
apparently to take pictures, said
(see: http://www.freepalestinecampaign.org/Stranger%20article.htm)
"The spirit that she died for is worth a life.
This idea of resistance, this spirit of resisting
this brutal occupying force, is worth anything. And
many, many, many Palestinians give their lives for
it all the time. So the life of one international,
I feel, is more than worth the spirit of resisting
oppression." (Rachel Corrie's life, as opposed to his
own, of course.) Read more on Joseph Smith/Carr here:
http://www.homelandsecurityus.com/JosephSmith

A Hamas terrorist said openly that Rachel Corrie
was worth more dead than alive.
"'Her death serves me more than it served her,' said one
activist at a Hamas funeral yesterday.
'...Her death will bring more attention than
the other 2,000 martyrs.'" Making of a Martyr
(http://www.buzzle.com/editorials/3-22-2003-37821.asp)
by Sandra Jordan, Guardian Newspapers. Ms.Arraf,
your elected President, admits to working with Hamas.

(3)An ISM and US Camapign to End the Israeli Occupation
affiliate(Al-Awda) has allegedly solicited acts of terrorist
violence on the Internet: specifically the suicide bombing
of Ariel Sharon's hospital room.

A member of Al-Awda (Right of Return), an International Solidarity
Movement affiliate, allegedly posted a solicitation for a "martyr" to
bomb the Hadassah Hospital in Israel, where Ariel Sharon is being
treated for a stroke. (This was, incidentally, forwarded to law
enforcement when we saw it.)

Suicide-Bomber

Dear Abou el Fidda' ,

If you are next Martyr on the waiting list
get started and pack your heavy-stuff ,
kiss the hand of your mother
kiss goodbye you bothers and sisters
kiss the hand of your father
put on that heavy-jacket.......

Take the Express-Bus to Jerusalem-Central
and then take bus Nr. 17 which takes you to Haddasah
then step out at the Bus-Station called the :
"Hospital for War Criminal"

Show you Fake-Press-Card to the Security
and speak with an American-accent
walk slowly and do not attract attention......
Enter the main-Hall and walk straight to the VIP- elevator
tell them Mr. Wolf Blitzer has sent you.....!!

Go up to the seventh floor........
look for the room 714........ (intensive care)
and then slowly but surely hold on to that detonator
under your jacket.......

Once you reach that very-well-guarded-room # 714
stop and turn left.....
you will see a large "VIP-Waiting-Hall"
with the many Dignitaries from many countries
including ,unfortunatly, some Arab-countries......
who came to pay their respect to their dying-Hero.

Show again your fake-Press-Card and start
interviewing those "well-wishers".........
and ask them what made this man a Hero ??
and how come he became a "Man of Peace"

Then , order for yourself a cup of coffee,
sit down , rest and think for a while.......

If by then ,
you are still not convinced by the arguments you have heard
from those well wishers.....
then release that detonator !!

This man under intensive care will anyhow die,
with or without your suicide , my brother ,
your real enemies are
those who have called him a "Hero"
and could not convince you why.
( nor me)

Raja Chemayel
8th of Jan.06



Al Awda’s founder, Mazen Qumsiyeh was quoted at the Duke ISM Conference as saying that Jews who live in Israel are “a disease” and “must all leave.” Qumsiyeh
is on the steering committee for the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation
and, according to ex-PLO terrorist Walid Shoebat, Qumsiyeh is a former member of the PFLP, recognized as a terrorist group by the US State Department. He was also
denied tenure at Yale after sending out what was deemed an anti-Semitic email on
the universitys servers. See: http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=1158

(4) The ISM has provided "safe house" assistance for actual terrorists.

http://home.comcast.net/~jat.action/ISM_info.htm
"Susan Barclay, the
ISM organizer deported by Israel after she hid Islamic Jihad terrorist
Shadi Sukiya in the ISM office in Jenin, told the Seattle Post
Intelligencer that, "she knowingly worked with representatives from
Hamas and Islamic Jihad— terrorist groups that sponsor suicide bombings
and exist, according to their charters, to demolish the Jewish state
entirely." (Seattle Post Intelligencer, Thursday March 20, 2003,
"Activist's death focuses spotlight on Mideast struggle," By Sam
Skolnik, Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter.)

http://israelbehindthenews.com/Archives/Jul-04-03.htm#agitate
"Days before a British suicide bomber detonated an explosives belt in
Mike's Place, a bar in suburban Tel Aviv, the bomber and an associate
took tea with members of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), a
pro-Palestinian group that promotes non-violent resistance to Israeli
occupation."

http://home.comcast.net/~jat.action/ISM_info.htm
"The immediate goal
of the ISM is to hamper the ability of the IDF to prevent terrorist
attacks on civilians." "The ISM sees itself as working in tandem with
the terrorist organizations: Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Al Aksa Martyrs
Brigade. Those organizations use violent means, while the ISM undertakes
such aggressive non-violent actions as blocking the progress of Israeli
soldiers on their way to arrest terrorists. The intention of the ISM in
these actions is to protect terrorists from interference by the IDF."



Paul LaRudee of Norcal ISM, another affiliate of your campaign, was arrested
and deported by Israel for suspected links to Hamas. LaRudee, who like Joseph Carr
has admitted to entering Israel more than once under an assumed name has boasted about sleeping in the bed of a suicide bomber and most recently was a human shield for the Hizballah in Lebanon during the last war. (See: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6233 )



The suggestion that people should view your conference as a Jew Hate Fest is accurate. As part of the Boycott Israel campaign, the Palestine Solidarity Movement, of which your organization is a part, held workshops identifying various Jewish-American organizations to be boycotted as well allegedly for their support of Israel. Since all groups and individuals participating at these conferences agree to the same points of unity and solidarity with the same goal, it certainly applies to your organization as well. I am aware the three of you, or at least two, who wrote the letter may be of Jewish descent, however, this does not mitigate activities that are targeted against Jews. The Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto were rounded up by the Nazis by the Jewish Police and many Jews were turned in by fellow Jews known as “Jew catchers” by the Nazis for money. In addition, you state your campaign is “committed to organizing an anti-racist framework and working to counteract manifestations of racism in all forms.” This flies in the face of your chosen leaders willingness to work with Hamas as she has freely admitted to. We recommend you read the Hamas Charter. It specifies the annihilation of Jews in Israel and propagates the blood libel of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. If you were unaware, then would you please write us that you condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization that should be closed down and ask Ms. Arraf to resign as the “President” of your organization? In addition, I can find no condemnations of Jews in Israel being murdered via terrorism or suicide bombings on your website.

You state that your organization was not founded by Huwaida Arraf, but others in 2002. Can you produce for me corporate documents to that effect? Ms. Arraf herself announced the opening of your offices in Washington DC as well as your new website whereas your previous offices were in New York. Prior to your receiving nonprofit corporate status in 2006, were you ever a legal entity? Please send us proof of your incorporation as a legal entity in 2002. While you are at it, can you send me your foundation’s grants records and other sources of funding

Your organization promotes divestments and boycotts of Jews in Israel through starving them out financially. These activities of yours and your ISM and associated anti-Israel allies result in 30% of Israel’s children and the elderly going to bed hungry at night or forced to eat in soup kitchens. This is indeed hatred of Jews and the same tactic of economic boycotts of Jews was the first tactic of the Nazis in 1933 that ultimately led to the Holocaust. The code talk you use is fairly obvious and we at The American Thinker do not fall for it.

If someone using the same technique were to say Black people cannot live in Washington, DC where your offices are, yet does say they can live anywhere else in the world, and that they should be boycotted and starved until they leave, it does not make them any less racist against Black people. The same applies to your organization’s alliances and support for a campaign to starve out, dispossess or even kill the Jews residing in Israel or in the disputed territories of the West Bank, while claiming you will embrace Jews who will help you dismantle the Jewish state.


One of your authorized representatives has openly spoken out for the destruction of Israel. Noura Erekat, who is listed on your website as an official “grassroots organizer”and legal advisor (see: http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=1307 )for your campaign sent another email out recently stating that all of Israel even within the 1948 armistice lines is “occupied” and should be dissolved and asks for volunteers to help her do so. See( http://www.stoptheism.com/?M=&T=200). Do you intend to force her resignation along with that of Ms. Arraf as a result these revelations? Mr. Erekat can also be viewed on You Tube at these addresses: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw89UDZay4M&mode=related&search and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtsbZ8LZ0m8 where she refuses to condemn a call by Bin Laden to kill Jews and is introduced as your campaign’s “legal advisor” (also listed as such on your website (see: http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=1307 ).


At the same time you mention Al Awda as a “member organization” of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. Al Awda advocates nothing less than the end of Israel. In addition, Al Awda was recently revealed to have connections to the Aryan Brotherhood,an anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi organization by me that resulted in UC Riverside canceling their “international” conference there. Do you intend to demand their removal from your “non-racist” organization? (See: http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:VmdIG-pddAEJ:www.al-awda.org/alert-eoc.html+US+CAMpaign+to+end+the+ISraeli+occupation+%2B+AL+Awda&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=6&gl=us ).

We also note that your elected President, Ms. Arraf, has spoken on behalf of the Council for the National Interest that is openly known to be anti-Semitic and run by Paul Findley.

Your organization has also opposed congressional action to try and stop Palestinian terrorism: (see: http://www.endtheoccupation.org/modinput4.php?modin=92 ).

Your website was indeed registered to a Nadil Ghaith from the UAE at the same time Ms. Arraf announced the organization’s offices were opening in Washington DC in 2005. Originally registered at www.endtheoccupation.com , (see: http://www.omdurman.org/columns/NidalGhaith.doc ) your organization deleted that domain name on April 7, 2005, only days before creating the new domain name www.endtheoccupation.org with Radical Designs (see: http://www.expiresoft.com/domains/available/2007-04-07-288.htm ) Mr. Ghaith lists his residence in the UAE but has also turned up in Jerusalem. If your organization was originally involved with someone in the UAE who registered the domain name, and also represents the interests of the Palestinian Authority, then you definitely should be registered as foreign agents. I speculated in my article that Suleiman Ghaith, a top level al Qaeda operative, may belong to the same clan as Nadil Ghaith .

You deny that your organization undertakes strident attempts at promoting a boycott of American Jewish groups and to economically cripple Jewish businesses. Yet on your website you single out the Estee Lauder company, Ron Lauders’ business for a boycott among several other American Jewish-owned businesses. Your “member organizations” (your own description) also held a seminar at Duke University given by Mr. Abe Greenhouse outlining American Jewish businesses to be boycotted or even infiltrated as part of a campaign against Israel.

You state in your letter to us that you respect international law, yet do not condemn terrorism against Israelis. International law per Resolution 242 does not make the Jewish communities in the West Bank illegal, yet you recommend boycotting Jews and Jewish businesses in the US and abroad to force these Jews to lose their homes as somehow being necessary per international law. Eugene Rostow who helped author the resolution has stated the Israeli communities in the West Bank and Gaza are not illegal per his own resolution. We were wondering where you all earned your degrees in International Law and if you were aware of these discrepancies?

We note you take exception to our stated opinion that the activities of your organization only serve to make the Israeli/Palestinian dispute an unending affair. We note that in his official capacity as a leader in the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, Josh Ruebner is mentioned as being on the steering committee of Leslie Cagan’s United for Peace and Justice Coalition (see: http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?id=1757 ). UFPJ is in fact the revamped Communist Party USA (see: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6166 ) and Mr. Rubener seems to have had more than a passing association with over the last several years. The Communist Party USA platform is against the existence of Israel and its replacement by an Arab- dominated state called Palestine.

The above information, merely scratching the surface, reveals both the inaccuracies of your letter to me and facts that you do not seem to want the American people to know.

Finally, your website and organization falsely states that Israel is an “apartheid state” like South Africa used to be. Apartheid in South Africa was based on racial laws, Blacks were forced to live in certain areas and had fewer civil rights than Whites. This is not the case with Israel where all minorities have equal civil rights by law. Israeli Arabs enjoy the same civil rights as Jews and even have affirmative action programs giving them more rights than some Israeli Jews. At the same time, in the Palestinian Authority it is a death sentence to sell land to a Jew and Sharia Law is part of the constitution the same as in Saudi Arabia or Iran. While 20% of Israelis are Arabs with equal rights, the Palestinian Authority insists the West Bank and Gaza must be “Jew-free.” That is the only true apartheid going on in the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, and your organizations twisting of these facts only further reveal an attempt at deception among those whose opinions you seek to sway against Israel. We at American Thinker find your racist attitudes against Jews residing in the Middle East objectionable and reveal deception in your alleged anti-racist platform.

Given the above information, and the plethora of other information I have, I must reject your request for an apology and retraction. However, I would like to know since given the information I have provided you, if you intend to do any housecleaning in your own organization?



Sincerely,



Lee Kaplan
