Feeble ISM Response to Accusations

Huwaida Arraf, ISM founder and wife of self-hating Jew Adam Shapiro, has written a letter to the Jerusalem Post to refute claims that the ISM is connected to terrorist organizations. However, her letter betrays the ISM position that palestinian terror operations are not really “terrorism”.

Every nation that has ever been occupied has had the right to protest that occupation. The Americans fought against the British, the French resisted the Nazi occupation, to name just two nations who fought for their freedom. Palestinians have the same right to resist occupation via “legitimate armed struggle,” peaceful actions, or a combination of the two. The ISM is committed to peaceful actions as part of that equation. The violence in this struggle has been the violence against us, not perpetrated by us.

Rather than tackle the specific claims that her organization has met with and protected known terrorists, Arraf launches into the usual ISM propaganda:

A tactic of the Israeli government has been to label every Palestinian man, woman and child a “terrorist” in an attempt to justify its brutal actions against an occupied people. Now the tactic is to also try to vilify peace activists from all over the world who are raising their voices against an evil occupation that is the root cause of violence in Israel/Palestine. The terrorism that we have seen has been directed at us: the Israeli Military terrorism against Palestinian civilians and against internationals like Rachel Corrie, Tom Hurndall, and Brian Avery.

I think we can all draw the necessary conclusions as to what exactly the ISM stands for.
