Anti-Israel crusade on U.S. campus (The usual suspects)

The University of San Francisco is a Jesuit college. One thing of interest is how the Catholic Pope during World War II did nothing to help the Jews during the Holocaust. In following tradition, USF’s campus President and Reverend Stephen Privett is no better. Alerted that one of his faculty, the virulently anti-Israel and anti-US Stephen Zunes arranged for a recruiting session to boycott the Jews on the Bay Area campus sponsored by Global Exchange, a non-profit group that gave $600,000 in aid to al Qaeda while our marines were fighting in Fallujah and provides aid to Hamas, Pruitt followed the example of the World War II Pope: He did nothing to stop it. In fact, he stonewalled any communication with the Jewish community.
Lying by omission: University of San Francisco’s Middle East Studies Department hosts Dalit Baum’s lecture to recruit more BDS activists and financially ruin the Israeli economy
By Lee Kaplan, investigator, analyst
On November 9th, 2011, the University of San Francisco’s Middle East Studies Department and International Studies Professor Stephen Zunes, the school’s Muslim Students Association (MSA), as well as the Bay Area non-profit Global Exchange all sponsored little more than an indoctrination session against the Jewish state of Israel and Jewish businesses. The event promoted the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement against Israel while trying to pass itself off as an academic event. Professor Zunes has a long history of antipathy against Israel as a US ally.
The guest speaker for that evening was Dalit Baum , who runs the website Who Profits? and is an Israeli leftist who in the past has called for the dismantling of the Jewish state and who boasted she has already cost the Israeli economy in excess of 1.5 billion dollars in promoting BDS against Israeli firms worldwide. Baum bills herself as a “feminist scholar” and was introduced as such by Zunes, even though she holds only a degree in math and has never published any academic work regarding feminism. Baum made clear during the evening she was at USF to present to the students “information” and “tools” they could use to boycott and divest from the Jewish state. Zunes remarked at Baum’s courage speaking at USF because of Israel’s new law allowing lawsuits by companies affected by BDS against activists like Baum.
As a form of perversion, the BDS Movement gets touted on college campuses by the likes of Zunes and Baum as some form of fighting “oppression” and “human rights abuses” when it is actually an extension of the Arab League Boycott against Israel that was created in 1950. Boycotting was the first political action step taken by the Nazi Party in 1933 that led to the Final Solution. It is a form of economic warfare to force Israel’s government to capitulate to Arab demands. Zunes and Baum also tried to conflate their boycott efforts by fallaciously comparing Israel today with the 1980’s apartheid South Africa in order to instill in those attending the idea that they were fighting “oppression.”
Global Exchange, Baum’s main sponsor, is the fundraising arm for Medea Benjamin’s Code Pink, an NGO that routinely provides monetary and physical aid to the terrorist group Hamas whose charter calls for not only the killing and dispossession all of Israel’s Jews, but the complete annihilation of all world Jewry, so already the event was off to a shaky start. Code Pink/Global Exchange also sent $600,000 in aid to the “Iraqi Resistance” while US marines were fighting in Fallujah.
A photograph of Medea Benjamin was flashed on the screen demonstrating against Israel overseas, but few in the audience would have seen the connection or recognized her and Zunes mentioned the organization as if it were a purveyor of brotherly love. Dalit Baum also condemned the US presence in Iraq and Afghanistan suggesting it was mainly for profits and like the dispute between Israel and the Palestinian Authority a form of “neo-colonialism.”
In order to put some distance between the event and itself after some Jewish groups expressed alarm the event would be held on the Jesuit campus, the administration required the head of the Muslim Students Association read a disclaimer that stated, ”The presence of a guest speaker on the campus of the University of San Francisco does not necessarily imply approval or endorsement by the University of the views expressed by the guest speaker or by anyone present at the event.” A communiqué also went out assuring critics that a question and answer session would follow to allow for differing points of view. 2 x 4 cards were passed out with instructions to write questions down that would be addressed later that evening.
After the disclaimer was read, Professor Stephen Zunes immediately stood before the room and stated he felt obliged to “declaim” the disclaimer. “I’ve been teaching here for 15 years, “ he said, “and it’s the first time I’ve ever heard it explicitly said. Why it had to be said is an indication it’s a challenge to raise human rights issues when you are dealing with a strategic ally of the United States [Israel]. Zunes reminisced about his own activism in boycotting South Africa and tried to conflate what when on there in the 1980’s with what Israel is dealing with in the Palestinian Authority. While he mentioned whites discriminated against blacks in South Africa, he avoided mentioning that Arabs who are Israeli citizens enjoy full civil rights the same as Jews and even have affirmative action programs in Israeli universities, own businesses and serve as judges, policemen and even in parliament . “There is much to be said,” he continued, about boycotts, divestment and sanctions as a way to raise a challenge to the Israeli occupation.” However, he made no mention that the Palestinian Authority does practice genuine apartheid against Jews (not to mention terrorism) and even has a law on the books that metes out a death penalty for selling land to a Jew, even retroactively, and a constitution modeled after those of Iran and Saudi Arabia that do discriminate against religious minorities.
Zunes then introduced Baum as an “outstanding scholar” and “human rights activist.” Baum began her lecture by first asking the audience how many of them had heard of the BDS movement or participated in it. She remarked that few in the audience knew about it as she thanked specifically Zunes and the MSA for inviting her explaining that her purpose there was to “report back” to USF students on the BDS movement and give them “tools” by which to engage in boycotting Israel “over here.” She thanked specifically Zunes and the MSA for inviting her.
Baum’s lecture could only be described as a form of “lying by omission”; that is, a style of presenting just enough information about a topic to elicit a positive or negative reaction without presenting all the facts just as Professor Zunes had done in trying to conflate South Africa’s apartheid years with Israel’s current dilemma with the Palestinian Authority. In some instances she just outright lied.
Baum began by saying, “The idea of having a Jewish only organization in Israel is like having a whites only racist organization here in America.” She explained how the activist organizations she belonged to had been fortunate enough to join Arab groups “in solidarity” to oppose Israel’s current existence as a Jewish state. She spoke of an Arab civil society of women’s groups, educators, unions, Muslim groups, even communists that was working to “end the occupation” (she made it a point not to mention the myriad terrorist groups that make up the Palestinian Authority government-to-be or that these “civil groups” support the terror groups in their activities). She claimed she would speak only of the 1967 occupation of the West Bank but alluded many times to events in Gaza without mentioning rockets fired on Israeli communities. Baum began by showing a map of Israel and the Palestinian Authority then saying that Israel has no borders. She claimed that 3.5 million Palestinians live in the area but that the Israeli communities (settlements) had control over the main roads and implied only Jews were allowed to use them. She referred to the areas around the settlements as being “ethnically cleansed,” to suggest racism when the Arabs and most Israeli Jews are racially the same, but practice different religions. She made no effort to point out that Arabs who are Israeli citizens are the same ethnic and religious makeup as Arabs in the Palestinian Authority nor about how various security measures were needed because Palestinian terrorists routinely attack Israelis who use those roads. Nor did she say Arabs from the PA can use those roads after getting security clearance, such as taxi drivers. She told her audience, “If you are Jewish you can go to some areas and if you’re not you can’t go to other areas all in a country that has no borders.” This was an example of leaving out just enough information to make a false impression. The truth is that if a person is an Arab and an Israeli citizen he is permitted to go anywhere any Jewish Israeli citizen goes.
Palestinian Authority Arabs are restricted due to terror attacks on Israelis. Israel’s lack of permanent borders is because the Arab states back in 1967 all agreed to refuse to make peace with Israel so the “borders” are in fact temporary armistice lines subject to final negotiations as part of a peace deal. None of the students attending her lecture would have known this and clearly Baum and Zunes didn’t want them to.
Baum then accused Israel of “profiting from the occupation” by selling inferior goods to the Arab population in the West Bank such as spoiled food, what she attributed to “neo-colonialism” . She later tied this profiteering as being behind the security costs in the West Bank. “The security costs are the costs of the Palestinian resistance” she said. Meanwhile, she made no comment of terror attacks on Israeli citizens both in or outside Israel. She made no attempt to suggest that the Palestinian Authority government is run by a terrorist organization (Fatah) and myriad such organizations run things there such as Hamas and even the PFLP that works with her organizational network in Israel. Nor but did she mention that the Oslo Accords sought to set up an independent Palestinian state there years ago but terror attacks against Israelis had made this impossible. Through some twisted logic she determined that Israeli corporations that provide jobs for Palestinian Arabs should be boycotted in order to make Israel leave the area to the Palestinians, without once explaining how any such activity would benefit the average Palestinian Arab.
Baum displayed a photo of boys at a weekly demonstration in the village of Bi’ilin. She urged people in the audience to boycott an Israeli firm that manufactures tear gas because “tear gas” can make you very sick and you could die”, but she completely ignored that the Arab population in B’ilin every Friday stages a riot at the Security Fence where rocks, Molotov cocktails and other incendiaries are thrown as Israeli soldiers. She called these riots demonstrations and declared them “nonviolent”. then said she never attends them physically herself because she is scared of the violence that goes on only from the Israeli police.
Baum then explained the three purposes of her movement and BDS: The first one was Repression which she explained was Israel’s need to control the population in the West Bank. She complained that security companies in the West Bank were profiting from the occupation and this was why the “occupation” would not end (no mention of Arab terror attacks on Israelis or the recent murder of an Israeli father of four on the highways which is an almost weekly occurrence). Baum displayed a photo of a section of the Security Fence that comprises large security walls and towers around Jerusalem but is really only about three per cent of the entire fence that is mostly barbed wire. The fence in the photo was set up to block sniper shots into the Jewish neighborhood of Gilo in Jerusalem from the surrounding hills. Nobody in the audience would know
this and apparently Baum didn’t want them to. Attempts to raise this information denied and referred to the 2x 4 cards to be answered “later.”
Baum explained her own history as beginning with the anarchist lesbian group Black Laundry is Israel. She elicited giggles from audience as she explained “funny” things her group would do in near weekly demonstrations against the Israeli military. None of her audience would have known that just for being lesbian in a Palestinian state she would subject to murder, let alone practice her sexual orientation openly as in Israel, nor that homosexuals in the PA routinely flee to Israel for refuge. She described Black Laundry as “the first time part of a huge nonviolent movement that was facing a very violent Israeli military” had done anything.” She continued, “being a nonviolent activist, I don’t’ like violence” (yet she had no qualms about stopping the Israeli military that protects Israelis from violence).
Baum next tied Israeli security companies, some that do business in the US because Israel profits from US subsidies. She declared this was done to provide Israel with free security products.
It was at this point that Baum also began explicitly lying in her presentation, not just omitting facts for an unknowing audience she and Zunes hoped to recruit. She displayed a photograph of Ofer Prison in the West Bank where the military and police incarcerate terrorists or violent rioters. She described it as “a very terrible prison for Palestinian “political prisoners.” She later said that she had never been inside or toured the prison herself nor that Palestinian prisoners in Israel’s system routinely earn even Master’s degrees and PhD’s while in prison at the expense of the Israeli taxpayer.
She described the administrative courts near the prison and accused Israel of arresting “13 year-old kids dragged from their houses in the middle of the night” and brought there.” Nobody in the audience would know these are the same rock throwers who attack Israelis on the highways and at riots such as in Bi’lin.” The implication was
that Israeli police just raid homes for no reason at all.
She objected to an unmanned robot vehicle Israel builds and uses that patrols the border urging the manufacturer be boycotted. She talked of Caterpillar and Rachel Corrie and Gaza and told the audience Israel routinely bulldozes homes with people in them. She falsely claimed the Israelis just pull up to civilian homes for no reason and give the occupants only a few moments to flee. “if you are very old or unlikely you die.” This was blatant lying. Home demolitions only are used to destroy homes that were used as bomb factories or homes of suicide bombers and they are not random.
Settlements was her second issue she said “because they are illegal”…She said that since WWI international law consensus was it’s not a good idea to let states hold onto what they occupy of other countries in a war, because it leads to later wars. She never told her audience that Jewish settlements were in the West Bank and Gaza before the war in 1948. She claims to cite international law by the 4th Geneva convention which states no state can take over another country’s land by force. “Such occupation it says must be temporary until agreement reached over time.” But this is exactly what Israel has been doing all along Baum has no international law degree nor is the Geneva Accords even applicable as it only is between established states that are signatories to the accords. There was no Palestinian state in 1967 and the West Bank and Gaza were Jordan and Egypt who ceded the land to Israeli control after the war, in essence dumped the Palestinian population in Israel’s lap.
She complained Israel held land 44 years without mentioning the “3 no’s” announced by the Arab League after the ’67 war: “No negotiations, no peace, no Israel. The settlements she claimed are illegal by international law but again they are not since UN Resolution 242 of the UN allowed Israel to regain land lost in 1948 as part of a negotiated peace settlement and final borders. “We have the law on our side,” she said but the audience would never know she was referring to kangaroo courts that routinely find fault with anything dominated by totalitarian regimes that condemn anything a democracy like Israel does. Baum is not an expert in
international law.
Baum then mentioned Israeli companies the BDS movement was targeting such as Lev Leviev. She showed photos of activists picketing the store in New York and crowed how successful they were, that they had allegedly getting his company to stop building settlements in the West Bank.”This is a huge victory for a small group singing and dancing in New York.
Her third issue was “Land Exploitation” she said as she accused Israeli companies of exploiting “cheap land.”. ”Why is it cheap?” she asked the audience. An MSA student blurted out “It’s stolen!” “Right!” she replied. In fact, land taken by Israel for industrial uses or settlements is only former government land that belonged to the Jordanian government or Egypt’s. No private property of Palestinians is taken. Baum directly lied to the audience suggesting Israel just takes Palestinian private homes for its own use, taken with no legal
Baum specifically targets the Ahava Company in the West Bank that makes cosmetics from Dead Sea mud boasting that the BDS campaign had forced the closure of the Ahava store in London . The audience would never know that the store closed not because people boycotted Ahava products but because BDS activists prevented the surrounding stores from doing any business so the landlord refused to renew Ahava’s
lease due to riots.
Again, playing international lawyer, Baum accused Israel of conducting “pillage” for selling mud. Israel employs Arabs in the West Bank, and is trying to set up an independent Palestinian state that applauds murdering Jews and repeatedly says it will take over all of Israel, but the Jews are responsible for pillage.
Baum also attacked Soda Stream, boasting how BDS activists got the. European Court of Justice to force them from saying Made in Israel on their products because their factory was in the West Bank. “You should educate people about that” she said, ”the most important category is exploitation of resources and the
Palestinian labor. At this point Professor Zunes recommended a film called the Bottomline about corporate exploitation of blacks in South Africa under apartheid. This was another false allusion to apartheid South Africa.
“Maybe you should have a training night one night where you can screen this film,” said Baum,” It shows how corporations supported the S. Africa apartheid regime” and she suggested this scenario be used to attack Israel.
A training night? For an academic lecture?
“Try and find something around you that connect to the crimes in Palestine. And try to find something you can do over here that will influence the bottom line over there…..you can be effective.”She urged students to … “ want to know how I am implicated, how products I buy are related to ‘crimes’ over there. Not
to make them feel guilty but to make a difference.”
She concluded with a swipe at Ariel Sharon who decided to build the Security Fence and said that years of Likud governments had exploited the West Bank. She made no mention of the horrendous bus bombings and terror attacks and murders of Israelis, may paid for by the late Saddam Hussein for the PLO and other
Palestinian terror groups that necessitated the fence, nor how terror attacks dropped 97% since its installation.
I raised my hand at the conclusion and to ask Prof. Zunes if I could ask him a question about bringing in a lecturer who could show how many falsehoods were just presented….Zunes replied I should fill out a 2 x4 card with my question for the question and answer session that was now to begin. I did so and handed him the card with my business card. Baum took all the 2 x 4 cards and each time she came on a question by a pro-Israel member of the audience she simply said, “I don’t want to answer this question.” She then answered questions that only supported what she said earlier, ignoring any questions that might elicit discussion. Zunes ignored my question.
Threatened with arrest… for daring to ask a question?
When the event broke up I approached Zunes at the front of the room and politely asked him, “Professor Zunes, you didn’t answer my question. Can I bring in a lecturer to lend balance to what was presented to your students here tonight?”
“You’re a liar!” Zunes screamed at me. A plainclothes security guard from USF stood next to me and threatened to handcuff me and throw me out of the room if I did not leave immediately. I asked the guard, “What? For asking him a question? He’s the one who is yelling.” I left. A complaint to the Administration with
recording and eyewitness by me the next day was only stonewalled.
This is the state of Middle East Studies at the University of San Francisco. Welcome to 1933 where students are taught to boycott, divest from and sanction Jewish businesses and it passes as an “academic lecture.” Reverend Privett should be proud of upholding the tradition on the Jesuit campus.

SABA Mosque has Hezbollah cells in the making

How youths in American Mosques pose a potential threat as Hezbollah cells: SABA Mosque in San Jose, California leads the way:

Imagine you wake up one morning to the news: war has broken out between American forces and the Khomeinist regime in Iran. Within hours of U.S. forces landing on Iranian soil, shooting attacks have broken out at some U.S. high schools and colleges and in shopping malls. Synagogues and local police stations across the country have experienced bombing attacks. Even some day care centers have seen attacks on children across the country. Within hours of the war starting, fatwas were issued at some mosques ordering the devout to take up arms against “the oppressor” — America.

Sound implausible? Not really, if one looks below the surface at certain mosques in the U.S. As in any social construct, while the elders of a given mosque, the imams, might lead the call for such attacks, it is the young people with the physical vigor and desire to take action that would carry them out. Not all mosques or their youths would be involved. For example, while both Sunni and Shiite mosques both tend to be against American foreign policy, the Sunnis and Shiites don’t always get along (but sometimes they do when it comes to opposing Israel). Incredible as it sounds to non-Muslims, Shiites expressed satisfaction at the killing of the Sunni Osama Bin Laden.

But would young adolescent Muslims in America who listen to hip hop music, or play video games, especially the girls who don’t wear hijabs or niqabs, really take to arms for Holy Jihad? The answer lies with what the youths are listening to and saying behind the facade of the mosque that appears as just another religious institution in a land that allows maximum freedom of religion.

A case in point could be made about the SABA Mosque located in what on the surface looks to be the peaceful Silicon Valley, California. The Mosque is near all the Internet goliaths like Google, but within it lurks another world behind the scenes. Attending a sermon is the same as at any synagogue or church; the devout become lost in the daily orisons, very young children run around trying to amuse themselves as their parents pray, men and women serve food for the after service meal. But SABA is different in a sinister way; SABA is a mosque dedicated to the Khomeinist government in Iran. While brochures at its entrance stress how the Mosque’s school, SABA Academy, instills in its youth “a high moral character,” other brochures urge mosque attendees to never cooperate with the FBI.

In fact, the entire mosque gives constant tributes to the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the man who led the Iranian revolution that took U.S. embassy personnel hostage in 1979, killed 243 U.S. military personnel in 1983 and launched Hezbollah. Such tributes are not lost on the Mosque’s young people, either. Since the idea is instilled in the Mosque’s young adolescent men and women that following the lead of the Mosque’s elders will give them a “high moral character,” it would only be a natural progression in time of war for such young people to follow a fatwa to martyr themselves for the regime back in Iran.

Is this an exaggeration? If one looks at the Facebook and YouTube accounts and activities of one leader of the Mosque’s youth movement, the answer is apparently no.

That example would be the SABA Mosque’s imam’s son. Since the religious leader of any institution usually sets an example for his acolytes, one normally can expect to observe in his children the models for all youths growing up within the religious institution, so following the imam’s son would be a natural progression.

Nabi Raza Mir is the SABA Mosque’s religious leader, or imam. His prestige can be seen in how his followers, especially the youth, address him as “maulana,” which is Arabic for “our lord.” Mir was recently denied reentry into the United States after visiting his native village of Alipur, a Khomeinist stronghold in India. Despite the U.S. Homeland Security Department (DHS) wanting to keep him out, a U.S. judge decided to let him back into the U.S. In fact, part of Mir’s legal appeal aided by CAIR and lawyers from the National Lawyers Guild was that he needed to return because his son was still living here and would need to enter college soon. The boy, Ali Mir, to his friends is a high school student active in the Mosque’s community in San Jose, being groomed to one day be another extremist imam in America like his father heading several regional mosques.

Imam Nabi Raza Mir of SABA Mosque, father of Ali Mir.

Hezbollah agents and adherents usually like to have dual identities and as such have dual names. Ali Mir, San Jose high school student by day, in the Mosque is known as Ishraq Abidi. This distinguishes him from the kafirs, or non-Muslims, and sends out a message he is not just anyone in the Shia community. The Khomeinist youth movement back in Iran is known as the Basij, and they wear a distinctive white and black checkered scarf to let others know they mean business. Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi sports this scarf at public functions in San Jose and around the Mosque.

Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi at rally in downtown San Jose, California.

Is this just a 17 year-old boy living in America emulating terrorists and Khomeinist thugs in Northern California? Or is he promoting what he has learned at his father’s knee? The boy’s YouTube account reveals much more about him. Rather than images of rock bands and pretty girls, Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi’s YouTube pages are festooned with images promoting terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas and denigrating Jews (Zionists). One page shows us an image that says, “Put this on your profile if you believe 9/11 was a Zionist inside job.” Immediately below this we see the image of two fingers making an obscene gesture with the quote “F— Zionists!” and immediately below that we have the image of a HEZBOLLAH-branded pistol with the statement “Take the gun and fight the Zionists [Jews] and the Nawasib [Saudi Sunnis, considered U.S. allies]-Put This On Your Page If You Support Resistance Against the Zionists and the Nawasib.”

An isolated incident? Not quite. As with most teenagers, Nabi Mir’s son is active with using social media on the Internet. A screenshot of a YouTube page he operates for the SABA Mosque features a video of his imam father lecturing and at the bottom lists his alias Ishraq Abidi and tells viewers for his avatar he chose the name of the Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi. An avatar is an emblem that represents what someone believes in and becomes their sign on a message board. Yazdi is the worst of all the Khomeinist imams running Iran today, the most militant, anti-U.S. and pro-terror, and he is the godfather of Ahmadinejad. Of note, we see that Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi is not alone as one group he communicates with regularly that was listed on the page is Shia Youth representing thousands of Ali Mirs/Ishraq Abidis.

On still another Facebook page, one on which he openly uses his nom de guerre Ishraq Abidi, he explicitly says he is a fan of Ali Khamenei, the current militant Islamic leader of Iran and then includes his admiration for the Ayatollah Khomeini, the Hamas fund raiser and supporter George Galloway and Ahmadinejad, all terrorism supporters. He promotes his mosque’s youth camp and mentions he sells something that says he loves his dad. How sweet.

Watch this video the imam’s son has presented on the Web, especially noting the calls to violence and terror at the end:


Or this one: http://www.youtube.com/user/lebaneseboy1

And note the wall used by Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi for many of his social media pages at this link:


It’s obvious the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi hosts multiple pages that all extol support for violence or terrorism. On yet another YouTube page where he lists his ID as ali3212, he has an Iranian flag with a silhouette of an armed terrorist superimposed over it. To the right is a video of a sermon given in Iran where the adherents all chant “Death to America!” In another YouTube page he operates there is a video tribute to the Ayatollah Khomeini, another titled “The Beautiful Channel” contains a collage of Hezbollah flags. Remember, it was Hezbollah who murdered our U.S. marines back in 1983. The Internet is full of this lads social media pages, and many have been since removed but were saved on screen captures. In one older Facebook page he uses a photo of the Ayatollah Khomeini as his avatar and he set up at least three more pro-Hezbollah pages that call for death to America. Apparently he has made a business out of this on YouTube that he now calls ZahraProductions.net, a site replete with the worst jihadist media and tributes to Khomeini and Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah. Some of the material makes threats and exhortations to violence calling for the destruction of the United States and Israel.

In downtown San Jose, California youths from SABA Mosque wear Basiji scarves, extoll Hezbollah.

Basijis are like the Hitler Youth Movement of Iran’s regime and commit themselves to martyrdom.

Ali Mir/Ishraq Abidi does not conduct a business doing this because nobody looks at his wares.He in fact communicates with and inspires other Muslim youths not only from the SABA Mosque which is a central mosque in Northern California, but across the globe. In the event of war, extolled by his beloved imam father to martyr himself for the cause, it is obvious he would take great joy to do so.

(Additional relevant screenshots and photographs are available at http://www.flickr.com/photos/hezbollahwatch/.Although some have been removed after being exposed, they are preserved there.)

It isn’t Islamophobia when generations of young Muslims are indoctrinated to the cause of jihad and martyrdom. When a sense of “high moral values” includes tributes to terrorism, we should all be afraid.

San Jose's Dirty Little Secret: The SABA Mosque Khomeinist/Hezbollah cell

Open support for terrorism by Shia Association of Bay Area visitors: Asad Jaffi

The San Jose, California’s Shia Association Bay Area (SABA Mosque) keeps producing evidence of support for the Hezbollah terrorism group and the militant Islamist regime of Iran almost every day.

The latest evidence pointing to this are the frequent visits to the SABA Islamic Guidance Center by one Syed Asad Jafri, a mullah who speaks frequently at there, indoctrinating the congregation with Khomeinist ideas and messages of anti-Semitism.

Syed Asad Jafri
Jafri was born and raised in Toronto and completed his high school studies in Canada, then moved to the United States to pursue a college degree in computer technology. He received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 1998 and became a computer professional, relocating to work back in Canada, but his claim to fame in the Shia community is as a militant, anti-Semitic, pro-Hezbollah mullah.

This should come as no surprise since his upbringing was strongly influenced in his religious community by another militant mullah named Mohammed Zaki Baqri, another imam who was to become a SABA Mosque leader and who is also well-known for his hatred of Jews. Baqri hails from Alipur in India, the same Khomeinist stronghold where the Mosque’s imam Nabi Raza Mir comes from as well as other militant members of the Mosque’s leadership.

Asad Jafri became a loyal acolyte of Mohammed Zaki Baqri to such a degree that he married the militant mullah’s daughter, Zehra, who today is still his wife.

Flag of the terrorist organization Hezbollah
Asad Jafri has made statements at the Mosque that he openly supports the international terror organization Hezbollah. In lectures to pro-Khomeinist congregations in Canada and the United States, he has never shied away from promoting the image and ideas of Hezbollah. During one virulent session where he sought to indoctrinate the SABA Mosque congregation, while praising historical attacks on the “Infidel”, he praised the terrorist group’s attack on Israel by saying:

“And if that's not enough for you, that's too far in history, come to the summer of 2006, a small group of Shias in Southern Lebanon [i.e. Hezbollah terrorists], holding the flag of Husayn, defeated the Yazid of today (meaning Israel and the United States, since a “Yazid” is the most evil person to have ever been born.”

The Shia Muslims curse the Yazid throughout the year, especially during the Islamic month of Muharram al-Haraam. Citing from the Koran, Jafri told the congregation of “how many a small group defeated a numerous group (meaning Israel) with the permission of God only.”

In other words, Hezbollah was doing “God’s work” while kidnapping and ultimately murdering Israeli soldiers and innocent civilians and launching a war that killed many people on both sides.

View Larger Map
SABA Center
In 2004, Jafri relocated to the Shia religious studies center that is the city of Qum, Iran, along with his family. Both and he and his wife Zehra entered into the Hawza (religious seminary) and began their theological studies, later starting his tabligh missions such as to the SABA Mosque as early as 2006, when he started touring militant Islamist Khomeinist centers back in America and Canada. While touring in the U.S., Jafri spoke in Atlanta, Dallas, and Phoenix, but also made his presentations at the SABA Mosque because of its centralization in the northern California Islamic community. Jafri later returned to Qum where he resides today with his family and continues to study religion.

Asad Jafri is still openly hostile towards the United States. He frequently attacks the policies of the U.S. Government and openly promotes Khomeinist theories among the misguided American youths who frequent Islamist centers such as SABA in San Jose. In so doing he never strays from his open endorsement and promotion of the ideas of the late Ayatollah Khomeini.

Manzar Foroohar: The California Faculty Association's Secret Weapon
by Lee Kaplan
FrontPage Magazine
June 3, 2011



When the California Faculty Association (CFA) adopted a resolution in 2009 condemning Israel for its military incursion into Gaza, it reinforced the fear that academic unions would be the next front in an ongoing propaganda offensive against the Jewish State. Amidst the ensuing controversy, one of the key players in the resolution's formation—Manzar Foroohar, an Iranian immigrant and history professor specializing in the modern Middle East and Latin America at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo—came to the fore. However, the extent of her involvement was never publicly acknowledged. In fact, Foroohar authored and championed the resolution, which was presented by the CFA Peace & Justice Committee (Committee), unanimously adopted by the CFA Board of Directors on February 7, 2009, and passed by the CFA General Assembly in Sacramento on April 4-5 that same year.

Blandly titled, "CFA Call for a Halt to Violence Against All Civilians in Palestine and Israel," the resolution was, in fact, blatantly anti-Israel. According to University of California, Los Angeles, professor emeritus Leila Beckwith, writing at American Thinker in January, 2010:

The resolution states seven propositions that form the basis for the actions recommended. The propositions include affirming a moral equivalence between Israel defending its citizens from missile attacks and Hamas firing missiles against Israeli civilians, a misstatement of the conditions in Gaza, an omission of the U.N. Security Council's condemnation of acts of terrorism, and a false charge against the U.S. of not seeking a just peace agreement.

Why would an academic union that acts as an exclusive bargaining representative within CSU and is devoted to improving working conditions for its members pass a resolution regarding international affairs? It turns out CFA president and California State University, Los Angeles, history professor Lillian Taiz—according to interviews with CFA members, and as the list of Committee resolutions makes clear—appointed the members of a statewide Committee in 2008 for this very purpose. With the exception of Foroohar, none of the unelected committee members have any expertise in Middle East studies, which might explain why their names were not listed on the resolution, nor was it prominently displayed on the CFA website in 2009. But during a phone interview, Stanley Oden, a professor in the department of government at Sacramento State University and a current member of the Committee, acknowledged that Foroohar was behind the 2009 resolution. Additionally, even though the names of Committee members no longer appear at the CFA website, a screen capture from 2008 demonstrates that both Foroohar and Oden were on the committee not long before the resolution was passed.

The resolution was slipped quietly in front of CFA members—for whom monthly dues are mandatory— for endorsement; afterward, several of them, when contacted by this author, said they felt duped. Decrying "violence against civilians—whether in Palestine or Israel" in the "interest of peace and greater humanity in the region," the wording of the resolution led CFA members to believe that by signing it they would simply be supporting innocent victims. They were also unaware of the level of anti-Israel activism engaged in by Foroohar and others on the Committee.

A cursory review of Foroohar's academic work at Cal Poly reveals that she donates a good deal of her time both inside and outside the classroom to demonizing Israel, particularly by promoting boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). Indeed, Foroohar, along with a number of Middle East studies academics teaching in California, is on the organizing committee for the U.S. Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel, a group that works internationally to promote BDS.

The bibliographies and hand-outs (click here, here, and here for examples) for Foroohar's Middle East history courses reveal a biased professor trying to convince her students to blame Israel for the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict and to reject Zionism. Student comments at PolyRatings.com demonstrate as much, with one of them flatly stating that, "This professor has an agenda. Her classes are nothing but propaganda to support her cause." Fittingly, she supports her "research" with pseudo-scholarship that reiterates standard anti-Israel propaganda, including selections from Stephen Walt and John Mearshimer's notoriously shoddy book The Israel Lobby.

Foroohar is known for inviting virulently anti-Israel speakers to Cal Poly. In January 2003, a lecture series offered in conjunction with one of her courses included Israeli "peace activist" Susy Mordechay speaking about "The Assault on Palestinian Civilian Life, 2000-2002"; University of Southern California linguistics professor Hagit Borer on "Zionism: Myth and Reality"; and Jeff Halper, anthropology professor emeritus at Ben Gurion University in Israel and director of the one-man NGO, the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, on "The Key to an Israeli-Palestinian Peace: Dismantling Israel's Matrix of Control." In November 2004, Foroohar moderated a presentation featuring Ilan Pappe, an Israeli expatriate and "New Historian" who is one of Israel's harshest critics and now teaches in the UK. Among other attempts to rewrite history in order to tarnish Israel's image, Pappe was involved in the scholarly fabrication of a nonexistent massacre of Arabs in the village of Tantura in 1948.

Along the same lines, Foroohar gave lectures at California State University, Sacramento, in February 2009 titled, "Occupation of Palestine: The Obstacle to Peace" and "Zionism and Peace: Compatible or Contradictory Ideas?" In March 2009, she took part in a panel discussion at the University of Southern California titled, "From la Frontera to Gaza: Chicano-Palestinian Connections." She presented a slide show and discussion at California State University, Fresno, in October 2002, on "Occupation and Resistance." In May 2005, Foroohar moderated a discussion session at Cal Poly following a Muslim Student Association co-sponsored screening of several anti-Israel "documentaries," including Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land.

In the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist atrocities, Foroohar blamed U.S. support for Israel, in large part, for the attacks and warned that Israel would use it as pretext for violence. As she put it:

Fundamentalist extremists also resent the fact the United States helps Israel target Islamic civilians. . . . Now that our attention is on the attacks, it's giving license to the Israelis to shoot at will.

According to another Cal Poly faculty member who prefers to remain anonymous, Foroohar helped organize the Students for Justice and Peace in the Middle East-sponsored "Wall of Separation" displays on her campus from 2007 through 2010. During at least one of those occasions, she also gave a presentation. He added that:

In 2007, two of our Hillel students, on their own and not representing Hillel, made a couple of 2×3 posters and held them on the sidewalk, perhaps thirty feet away from their wall on our Dexter Lawn area. When she came in and saw them, she called the police to come and remove the students! The police responded, but told the students to walk with the signs, not plant them in the lawn. Complaints to the university about violations of free speech drew no response.

Had CFA members been aware of Foroohar's extremist background, it's a safe assumption they would have been hesitant to endorse the 2009 resolution. That a radical academic such as Foroohar was able to impose her anti-Israel positions on a union representing 23,000 faculty, counselors, librarians, and coaches on twenty-three campuses speaks volumes about the ability of a fanatical few to advance a deceptive, and often false, narrative on the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Moreover, the campaign to delegitimize Israel through the CFA didn't stop with the 2009 resolution. It may have opened the door for a future resolution to boycott and divest from Israel, which union leadership—responding to this author's interview requests during and after the closed-door 74th CFA Assembly in San Francisco on April 8-9, 2011—refused to confirm or deny is in the works. At the conference, Nena Torrez, an education professor at California State University, San Bernadino, and current member of the Committee, was whisked away by her colleagues before I could broach the subject of BDS, while later requests for an appointment with CFA staff were stymied and eventually labeled "harassment."

A number of CFA members certainly believe that a BDS resolution has been passed, and the fact that union leadership has engaged an attorney who has advised them not to discuss boycott-related issues with the rank and file would seem to back up their suspicions. In addition, several CFA members have consulted an attorney about the unelected members of the Committee authoring politicized resolutions against the wishes of the membership-at-large. Meanwhile, the second largest academic union in the U.S. may soon begin promoting boycotting and divesting from the Jewish state.

Columbia’s history professor Joseph Massad decides he’s an expert on international law above the entire world when it comes to de-legitimizing Israel.

By Lee Kaplan

Joining a long line of Palestinian and other Arab “academics” is a relentless quest to de-legitimize the Jewish state of Israel, Columbia’s Joseph Massad claims that the United Nation’s exercise of international law “against the Palestinian people” in 1948 creating Israel is rooted in a “ficticious”(sic) narrative of Israel having a "right" to exist.

Massad has taken pen or keyboard in hand to write a less-than-dignified propaganda rant against the Jewish state in the less-than-objective Arab news service, al Jazeera. In the article, dated May, 6th, 2011, Massad, who is not a law professor, nor has any expertise in international law, decides he knows more about international law than all the international lawyers in the world and throughout history including those who wrote UN resolutions pertaining to Israel’s existence and the establishment of states in the Middle East.

In the same Al Jazeera article Massad explains that “For the Palestinians and the international community, represented by the United Nations and the myriad resolutions its Security Council and General Assembly issued since 1948, what was to be negotiated were the colonization of land, the occupation of territory and population, and the laws that stipulate ethnic and religious discrimination in Israel, which, among other things, bar Palestinian refugees from returning to their land and confiscate their property. In their struggle against these Israeli practices, Palestinian leaders, whether in Israel, the Occupied Territories, or the diaspora, have always invoked these rights based on international law and UN resolutions, which Israel has consistently refused to implement or abide by since 1948. Thus for the Palestinians, armed by the UN and international law, the negotiations were precisely aimed to end colonization, occupation, and discrimination.”

Massad forgets or overlooks intentionally the United Nations in 1948 set up a Palestinian state on what is today called the West Bank the same time it created Israel (a state that was subsequently swallowed up by Jordan while Gaza was swallowed up by Egypt). Apparently, the United Nations setting up a Jewish state next door had no legal basis, but the Arab one did solely because Massad, the self-proclaimed international law expert says so. Massad also ignores that Jews were the majority population property owners who legally purchased all their land in the final area designated by the UN to be Israel. The remaining Negev desert had little going for it as private property back then. It is further a myth of the Palestinian movement that Jews just grabbed Arab property at the behest of the UN.

Massad further turns history and truth on their heads by ignoring that Israel was founded in international law by the United Nations over a 30 year period starting with the Balfour Declaration by the British. If Massad’s outrageous statements about law had any validity then most of the Arab states founded after the First World War would also have no legitimacy, such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon that were sops for Arab tribes who fought against the Turks for the British and French. Massad further ignores that the Jewish majority in Israel legally purchased most of their land in pre 1948 Israel, and denies a Jewish presence in the land for 3,000 years even existing after the Roman conquest, thus negating his accusation that the founding population of Israel were little more than colonists dispossessing the “indigenous” population of Arabs. Massad also ignores that Jews were the majority population property owners who legally purchased all their land in the final area designated by the UN to be Israel, parts of which were stolen by Jordanian and Egyptian armies back in 1948. The remaining Negev desert had little going for it as private property back then. It is further a myth of the Palestinian movement that Jews just grabbed Arab property at the behest of the UN.
Of course, Massad, ignores the myriad pogroms of Jews by the Arabs in the region in 1921, in 1929 in Hebron, in 1936 and 1947 which led the United Nations and Britain to declare finally a separate state for Jewish self-determination in those areas where Jews were a majority.

Massad even ignores that a “Palestinian” back in 1948 was a term used to mean a Jew, and the term was not even adoptede by Arabs allegedly from the region until after 1964 as was explained by the PLO leadership in 1970. One can only attribute such outrageous claims of violations of international law to Massad’s being tenured which guarantees he will be able to continue to teach his falsehoods to Columbia students.
So is Massad, the historian making up new history to bolster is ignorant rantings about international law? Is he covered by academic freedom to make such outrageous statements? The intelligent answer would be no.

Here are some further re-creations of events taught by Massad as evidenced by the Al Jazeera article:

“On the other hand, one of the strongest and persistent arguments that the Zionist movement and Israel have deployed since 1948 in defense of the establishment of Israel and its subsequent policies is the invocation of the rights of Israel, which are not based on international law or UN resolutions. This is a crucial distinction to be made between the Palestinian and Israeli claims to possession of "rights." While the Palestinians invoke rights that are internationally recognized, Israel invokes rights that are solely recognized at the national level by the Israeli state itself. For Zionism, this was a novel mode of argumentation as, in deploying it, Israel invokes not only juridical principles but also moral ones.

‘In this realm, Israel has argued over the years that Jews have a right to establish a state in Palestine, that they have a right to establish a "Jewish" state in Palestine, that this state has a "right to exist," and that it has a "right to defend itself", which includes its subsidiary right to be the only country in the region to possess nuclear weapons, that it has the "right" to inherit all the biblical land that the Jewish God promised it, and a "right" to enact laws that are racially and religiously discriminatory in order to preserve the Jewish character of the state, otherwise articulated in the more recent formula of "a Jewish and democratic state". Israel has also insisted that its enemies, including the Palestinian people, whom it dispossesses, colonizes, occupies, and discriminates against, must recognize all these rights, foremost among them its "right to exist as a Jewish state", as a condition for and a precursor to peace.”

Professor Massad in two paragraphs doesn’t even credit Israel with trying to make peace with its Arab neighbors who have been screaming to drive the Jews into the sea since before Israel’s creation because it is not an Arab majority and Muslim dominated state. He states no objection to “Muslim” states all over the Middle East, most of which no longer have Jewish populations that were ethnically cleansed (murdered) by the Arab majorities within them.

Since Israel was created by the United Nations, is Massad simply lying or is he trying to rewrite history to the Palestinian narrative? Obviously, the latter. The Israeli Declaration of Independence from 1948 stipulates equal rights for all citizens of Israel despite their ethnicity and non-Jewish Israelis, a majority of which are Arabs and Muslims serve in Israel’s judiciary, police force and even the IDF is they wish. Israel is the only country in the Middle East where Arab women can vote. Israel even has US-mimicked affirmative action laws in its universities and Arab members in the Knesset (who routinely under rules of freedom of speech call for the desruction of the Jewish state. If Massad were less a political hack for the anti-Israel crowd and a truthful academic, he wouldn’t make such false statements about discrimination and dispossession. Arabs who remained in a nascent Jewish state, founded legally by international law in 1948 after Arab armies failed to destroy it, have had their population multiply ten thousand percent since then and enjoy the highest living standards and more human rights than Arabs living anywhere else in the world.

Massad, the now self-proclaimed expert on international law, even faults the Almighty for what is written in the Bible and even in the Koran: the right of Jews to live in their own land, Israel, for their own self-determination. He says he is incensed that Israelis would deign to say they want “peace” because they don’t even have the right to exist. One can translate this into an endorsement of violence and terrorism and certainly cannot interpret it as any call to a peaceful settlement. To Joseph Massad international law must be obeyed when it supports Arab and Muslim goals, it is irrelevant when it supports the creation or rights of Jews to “exist” within secure borders. As such, Massad sees his function as a historian to promulgate the jihadist line rather than to educate the world to seek truth and advancement of society. His remonstrations about the inadequacies of international law are no better than his lectures and writings on history when it comes to objectivity and the facts.

Of course, the ISM has not commented on the death of Bin Laden. The fact is, like their Hamas masters, the ISM praises Bin Laden. This needs to be understood. But here's some more ISM depravity for you:

The Fogel family was murdered by Arabs from Awarta, the next village over. The killers were captured through the use of DNA. Yet the ISM declares them innocent and blames the murders on a mythical Thai worker. Now, the killers of the Fogels left the house after killing toddlers and their parents but came back later after they realized they left a three month old baby alive. They then cut the baby's throat and severed its head.

The ISM, of course, is running a video of some of the Arabs from Awarta claiming the big, mean Israelis attacked them for no reason at all. The introduce the speakers as the adult children of "martyrs" (dead terrorists), so is it any wonder that the homes of these individuals were subject to such. Of course, these children of "martyrs"insist the Arabs who murdered the Fogels are innocent.
But here's the corker: as the camera pans around their house that looks ransakced (who knows if they did it themselves to blame the IDF) we see on the side of a cabinet a poster praising Ahmed Yassin the founder of Hamas and the murderer of 350 Israelis before the IDF killed him. Now, obviously this family praises a mass murderer of Jews, but here's another question: are we to believe the IDF entered that home, ransakced it for no reason, then didn't touch that poster at all?
Please, the ISM are so full of crap. The video is clearly contrived and another attempt at propaganda by the ISM on behalf of the ISM and Arab terrorists. Go see for yourself on the ISM's homepage.

When Israel outlaws the ISM and jails foreigners who come to Israel to assist Arab terrorists as human shields for the terrorist groups Israel will finally move closer to getting some peace. As long as the Paul LaRudees, Huwaida Arrafs, the Greta Berlins and other perverts that make up the ISM
cult are permitted to keep walking around calling themselves "peace activists" when they know they are human shields for terrorists, the war will keep roiling and going on. All that is being accomplished right now is making another Iran in the Middle East that will call itself Palestine.

The fault lies with the US government as well for not arresting these people who roil the war. The US government knows they assist terror groups, fund raise for them and do propaganda for them on US campuses. The time has come to take a heavy hand and shut down the ISM. This week we will show some of you how to do it in your own neighborhoods.

No, I didn't kill him and neither did the Mossad, our brave boys in the US military did. The bastard from 9/11 was killed by the US military a week ago. To the ISM Flotilla creeps, may his fate await you and your Hezbollah and Hamas proxies!!!

New information of Vittorio Arrigoni: Killed for being gay.

It is now emerging that Vittorio Arrigoni may have been gay as the motivation for why some factions of Hamas killed him. This makes the most sense. Arrigoni was reportedly gay like so many other ISM anarchists who strive for an anti-establishment way of life. One of his killers was a Hamas policeman. That cetain factions of Hamas would have kidnapped an Italian national who was gay to put pressure on the other Hamas factions in dealing with the Italian government sounds plausible. However, the urge of the Muslims to murder a gay would have been just too tempting. Gays are being murdered all the time in Gaza under the repressive Hamas regime, a regime the ISM loves to support in its quest to kill Jews, Christians and anyone else from the "establishment."

Sunday, April 17, 2011


With all the crying and carrying on about Vittorio Arriigoni's death at the hands of his beloved Arab terrorists, nobody in mainstream media, esepcially the ex-Jews like Amy Goodman or Phlip Weiss bothered to report the death of 16 year-old Daniel Viflic.

Daniel died about the same time as Arrigoni. Why did this child die? He was a Jew on a school bus coming home from school when the Hamas, Vittorio's dearest buddies, fired a rocket at his school bus.

To all you ISM useful idiots out there: Where are your tears for Daniel Viflic? Where's the outrage at his murder by Hamas "peace activists"? And what about Gilad Shalit?

Rest in peace, Daniel. You died while still a boy, but you were a man among men.


Philip Weiss, an ex-Jew who just loves Jew killers over at his blog informs us that the Italian fool Vittorio Arrigoni who was murdered in Gaza by his Arab buddies was there (quoting Arrigoni)" because my grandfathers fought fascist occupation in Italy."

How interesting. Now, let's assume someone has even a slight knowledge of history and current events.

The Fascisti in Italy were allied with the Nazis who of course were allied with the Arabs. Hamas frequently makes reverential reference to Nazi ideas and symbols. Hamas is also p[art of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Nazi wing set up by Qtub who was
an admirer of Adolf Hitler (he even sported the silly same moustache).

The Hamas Charter is blatantly fascist. It takes its orders from God to kill all the Jews in the world and ultimately the Christians too. Cornell U has an excellent non-biased translation. Husseini, the leader of the Palestinians during World War 2 spent the war as a personal guest of Adof Hitler. Many historians believe he was the architect of the crematorium camps like Auschwitz after 1943. Of course, after fascism was defeated in Europe in 1945 many Nazis ran to the Arabs who hid them.

The Palestinian Authority Constitution and Hamas Charter are both fascist documents,
the latter copied from those of Iran and Saudi Arabia, two more fascist Arab states.
Sadly, it was paid for by the morons in the US State Department because they believe the Arabs will only accept a fascist form of government to live under because of Islam (they may be right).

Israel is recognized by Freedom House as one of the top four democracies in the world. Israel forcibly withdrew from Gaza its own people and industry to make peace
and got 8,000 rockets instead. Arrigoni tried to help get the sea lanes to Gaza opened from control by Israel to import those rockets from Iran.

Of course, this is the tactic of the ISM and the Arabs to sell their fascist irredentist goals to the West. They call themselves "Freedom fighters" when they should call themselves "Fascism Fighters" because they are truly fighting for fascism.

The Arabs who killed Arrigoni picked him of course because they knew it would embarass Hamas in the West and because he was an "Infidel" from Europe. He wore tattoos. He was a useful tool for Arab goals, but certainly not one of them. When their plan failed, they off'd the Italian meatball for the sheer pleasure of it.

Hamas is a fascist movement and government. So is Fatah. So is the entire Arab world.
If Arrigoni was serious when he stated his reasons for running with terrorists in Gaza, when he died and met his grandfather one can only assume hearing this exchange:

Vittorio: Grandpapa! It's me! Vittorio! I was killed defending Gaza from the Jews! I wanted to be remembered as just like you for fighting fascism!

Grandpa: Stupido! I fought fascism, You were promoting it every day against the democracies of the West as part of your anarhcist philosophy. I'm ashamed of you!
You were running with Hitler's and Mussolini's allies.

Vittorio: But grandpa! I was a "peace activist"!!!

Grandpa: The Faciscti of Hamas were no better than the Fascisti in Italy. The Jews have a word for guys like you: You're a shmuck!!!

Vittorio: Grandpa! You don't understand, for us anarchisti, logic means nothing. We oppose the status quo no matter what it is and we fight "oppression"!

Grandpa: You're just a shmuck like that ex-Jew who used my name on his blog to give meaning to your useless death. A shmuck is a shmuck is a shmuck.

St. Peter: Ok, guys, Basta. That's enough. Vittorio, I've got a nice dorm room for you with Arafat and Mugniyah. You can all masturbate together while repeating
"I am a Peace activist...kill the Jews...I am a peace activist...Destroy Israel..."

Vittorio: Really? Sounds nice. Where is the room?

St. Peter: It's in the basement. Some call it HELL. But since you like to use euphemisms as part of the ISM, let's just call it summer vacation in Cancun. We even have a summer cruise to take you there on our summer cruise ship, the Mavi Mamara."


In case anyone noticed, the three comments to my blog message below all call me names such as "bigot", "murderer" etc...because I express no sympathy for the Italian garbage that was Vittorio Arrigoni, killed by the same Arab terrorists he worked so assiduously to help kill Jews in Israel.

It really takes a sick mind to tell people one is a "peace activist" in order to cover the fact that one supports terrorists who murder innocent people. Huwaida Arraf, who wrote the ISM manual, tells ISMers to use this Big Lie technique. The ISM of course changed its tactics as I revealed this. In the past they would claim they were peace activists then in the next sentence recognize as "legitimate" the right to use violence against Jews in Israel. Now they just lie and say they are peace activists. But peace activists do not take sides and do things for the civilians on both sides. The ISM only works for the Arabs, the same Arabs who passed out candy and cheered the brutal murder of the Fogel family in the West Bank. An Arab terrorist, a "valiant martyr" in ISM lingo, drives a knife into the heart of a three-year-old boy. It takes a special kind of animal to do that. Arrigoni was no better than that animal. He pranced around with terrorists in Gaza, assisted and encouraged Hamas in the killing of Jews. He aided the smuggling of weapons to Gaza from Iran by sea and was a human shield for Hamas leaders in combat. One of those smuggled weapons killed 16 year-old Daniel Vific. These are the facts.

I'm no bigot. If someone wants to use the word "murder" for Arrigoni's death, recognize it is a favorite Arab pass time. Polls in the PA show the "civilians" all favor terror attacks on Jews. They pass out candy. They celebrate the murderers. Arrigoni as a European sought to give these behaviours legitimacy. He fed the crocodile and it ate him. He was a fool. Not a pacifist, not a humanitaria, but a fool.

If you belong to the ISM, take a lesson and grow up. The Arabs will only use you and you may end up dead or even raped as also happened to other ISM activists in Hebron. You are only a propaganda tool. The fact is, we need more Arrigonis to die by the hands of the Crocodiles. Rachel Corrie's slime ball parents are making a living out of promoting the cause of the same Arabs who put her daughter into harm's way because Hamas had an Arab hadnler guiding the ISM "activists" in front of bulldozers that day. When the parents of ISM activists take their kinder and stop them being useful idiots for Arab murderers, then mabe peace will be possible. Right now, these so-called ISM "peace activists" mean there will be "peace" when Israel is no more.

Arrivedercci, Arrigoni. May your fellow ISM activists follow on the same path you ended up on as a "peace activist." Wise people do not volunteer with the ISM to help a fascist Arab movement develop the next Iran. Arrignoi's mother hass expressed no umbrage at the fascist Arabs who really helped kill her son. If any mothers of ISM activists read this, tell your silly children to stay home. Playing anarchist like Arrigoni and supporting fascism, and Arab irredentism is not a human rights pursuit.

The ISM are falling all over themselves since the death by torture and strangulation
of ISM meatball and useful idiot Vittorio Arrigoni. Arrigoni was killed by the Arabs in an inter-terrorist dispute as he was so busy trying to aid the killing of Jews because Hamas had imprisoned some other Arabs who felt that Hamas was too liberal (really!)

Since the Arabs have always been into hostage taking, they seized Arrigoni to hold him for the release of one of their own, but being Arabs, they could not resist killing him so beat him near to death, strangled him and left him hanging in a public street.

In classic ISM lingo, of course, even after the Arabs took credit for killing the Italian sausage head, it had to be blamed on Israel, and even by extension against yours truly, namely moi.

In 2006 during Operation Cast Lead, I posted on Stop the ISM photos of ISM activists who were being human shields for terrorist leaders in Gaza along with a phone number to the IDF. At the top of that list was good ol' Vittorio. The little bastard had been deported twice earlier from Israel and sailed into Gaza on the flotilla ships. He was doing all he could to aid Hamas in their quest to kill Jews and Vittorio loved the terrorists so much he became a Palestinian citizen, his even posing with Hamas leaders for a photo op.

Anyway, Vittorio was fingered during a war because he was aiding enemy conmbatants. He was not targeted for "murder" as the ISM clowns write on the Internet. Nor was he killed by the Mossad, or me by my "Israeli website."

Arrigoni was no peace activist, either. On his Facebook page he ran a sign that read
"No Israelis or dogs". Hmmmm...In any case, if you want some laughs, google my name and Vittorio Arrigoni then read the ISM clown circus. As for Vittorio: Arrivederci,
Arrigoni, ya little bastardo. You worked to aid Hamas to kill Jews and were, as they say, hoisted on your own petard. Good riddance. If this keeps other ISM volunteers from going over there to interfere with the IDF then Arrigoni's death won't have been in vain. Visit Stop the ISM for some commentary..

At this writing I am in Washington, DC leaving to return to the Bay Area. The press conference at the National Press Club was a rousing success; we all spoke to a full house
of reporters. What is more, we were attended by a film crew from Russia TV, another news media outlet that is promoting anti-US and anti-Israel propaganda on US airwaves worthy of the most regressive of Arab states.

Why is Al-Jazeera a threat if allowed to broadcast all ovcer the US? Because it is part of the worldwide jihad network and also because it has become a mouthpiece for the ISM, the human shileds for Palestinian terrorism.

During the event I had the pleasure of meeting Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs. Ms. Geller is a beautiful and energetic woman and she's no dummy; the blogosphere has vilified her as being a bigot and anti-Muslim which she is not. She is, however, anti-jihad. People should read her new book. I know I will.

I spoke about the ISM and as usual when I asked the packed room of bloggers and reporters how many had heard of the ISM less than five raised thier hands. After this conference though, the word will finally get out.

I urge people to go to the America's Survival website and read my latest report on the ISM and information about the next flotillas that are helping to promote endless war in the Middle East. Just google "America's Survival + Al Jazeera Conference." Many thanks to Cliff Kincaid.

One thing is for certain, the meeting also persuaded me to put more time into this blog. I've neglected it because I realy did not like blogs, considering self-published gossip in most cases. However, that is changing. Look for changes here also. Now, go read the report!

With all the hue and cry about Islamophobia, here's a tale that goes unreported. The Shia Association of Bay Area Mosque -- led by Nabi Raza Abidi (legal name: Nabi Raza Mir) -- preaches that Jews and Christians are lacking in moral character and that their religions are corrupt.

How do I know this? A Shia who has attended the mosque told me.

The SABA Mosque boasts that its "acacemy" instills in its students "a high moral character". But what do they mean by "high moral character"? Apparently it means
considering Islam, and Shia Islam at that, as the only moral path.

A couple of weeks ago one of the executives at the Mosque began his sermon reading from the Hadiths. He prefaced his remarks by commenting that Jews today "do not practice their true religion" which lost its direction and the Jews descended into materialism. Now, translate that to mean the Jews began worshipping money and you have the vision of the money worshippin' Jew. This guy continued that "Christianity
was supposed to correct what the Jews lost, but Christianity had no moral purpose behind it."

Get it? Christians are immoral unlike the Muslims. SABA Mosque Muslims of "high moral character." I guess the ten commandments (acutally over 300) contained no moral precepts for Jews or Christians like the concept of jihad. In any case, the next time you hear the whine about "Islamophobia", understand there really is something to fear and worry about when it comes to what's going on inside a mosque
like the one SABA runs in San Jose. Right now, the Mosque is also trying to get homeland security to reverse the refusal to allow a SABA religious leader back into the US because of suspected links to Hezbollah. You know Hezbollah, that group of high moral character who murdered 241 US marines in 1983 in Lebanon on a peace mission, and that ntroduced suicide bombing to Arab culture.

I'll discuss the SABA Mosque's imam in coming weeks. "High moral character", my ass...

The news media has missed that Huwaida Arraf, co-founder of the Hamas support group ISM (International Solidarity Movement) has been a "legal intern" for the US House of Representatives. The scummy Ms. Arraf, also lists herself as the legal adviser for the Free Gaza Movement and a former intern for the Center for Constitutional Rights. The CCR is funded by Gulf Sheiks to get the Guantanamo detainees that kill American soldiers released through US courts. See http://www.linkedin.com/pub/huwaida-arraf/8/a04/550.

Arraf was a legal intern allegedly to advise US Congressman James P. Moran (D-Va) on how to get the Gitmo detainess released. She also allegedly went to law shcool from 2004-2007 at American University in DC. Conveniently, Arraf's ISM co-founder husband Adam Shapiro has been a PhD student at American University for the last seven years with no degree in site. Homeland Security and the FBI should take a hard look at American University. Is it fronting for the terrorist support group? Arraf and Shapiro were both low level US State Department employees in Jerusalem when they co-founded the ISM with Arafat in the Mukata surrounded by IDF troops. She then became a human shield for Hamas and other terrorists held up in the Church of the Nativity. That apparently didn't keep her from being a "legal intern" for a congressman. Something really smells.

There's a curious thing about Huwaida Arraf. She alleges, and the Palestinians (who would never tell a lie) claim she was and still is a Professor of Humanitarian Law at Al Quds University in East Jerusalem (that's a Palestinian university run by Sari Nusseibeh who did hard time in Israel for spotting for Scud missiles to fall on Israel for Saddam Hussein during the First Gulf War). Nusseibeh is against terrorism, or so he says, not because it kills Jews in Israel, but because it's not effective in trying to ultimately destroy the Jewish state. Ms. Arraf is never there at Al Quds, she's usually in Washington or at Durban organizing anti-Israel activity, or on the Gaza Flotilla boats she helped organize to bring material aid to Hamas in Gaza. From 2004-2007 when she allegedly attended law school she was writing the ISM's London manual and traipsing all over the world. Somehow she managed we are to believe to be in law school cracking the books and attending classes at the same time.

About her law degree: Allegedly she earned this at American University in D.C. in "Humsn Rights Law." Arraf attend classes when I wonder? While she was in Durban? On the high seas with the Flotillas? At a party getting a medal from Hamas with the other flotilla bastards? How about during the myriad conferences given across the country in the US? How abut during the riots in the West Bank (Judea and
Samaria) she led with the ISM? Has she been admitted to the Bar?

I have Arraf on a recording admitting at the Georgetown Divestment Conference in 2006that the ISM openly works with Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the PFLP.
Ms. Arraf even wrote the Washington Post back then after I wrote about it that her
statements were true. She claims she is "nonviolent" herself, so it's ok to give all manner of human shield support to the likes of Hamas and other terror groups.

This using the euphemisms of "peace activists" and "human rights workers" when they are clearly human shields for the terrorists is outlined in the ISM training manual.
The Amit Counter Terrorism Center in Israel recently came out with an intelligence report on this available at their website where I am cited as a key source.

If you need a project to work against terrorism in the US, contact Representative Peter King (R) and ask him why Huwaida Arraf had access to the US House of Representatives and is still running around. If you want to be involved, contact me at StoptheISM@att.net and I'll help you. Meanwhile, we roll merrily along in this country once again assisting Hamas. God save us...
