ISM: Not just human shields

Until today, I thought that the ISM acted as human shields for 'Palestinian' terrorists. Today, I know better. Now, they are taking an active role in the war on terror. On the terrorists' side. Lee Kaplan and StoptheISM report:
Stop the ISM has now obtained photographs of ISM leaders and organizers holding AK-47 assault rifles. The images show some of the ISM women disguised as Jews living in the West Bank and in the company of an Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade terrorist.

One of our volunteers in the United Kingdom for Stop the ISM managed to infiltrate the ISM late last June in the Holy Land where the ISM operates in direct support of terrorists. Our volunteer (who prefers to remain anonymous to avoid retaliatory attacks) has had prior experience going undercover for the police in the UK. The photos and intelligence he brought back are proving invaluable to intelligence agencies watching the ISM and have been in official hands for over a month prior to this publication.

Unfortunately, neither U.S. Homeland Security nor the Israeli security agencies have to date regarded the ISM as a serious threat. Some of these ISM people in these photos managed to escape; nevertheless, arrests have been made, and more are forthcoming.


Our Stop the ISM volunteer arrived at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv two months ago where he was immediately recruited by an ISM activist named Emiliano, who was there from the United States. A young man like our volunteer, Emiliano approached our man on arrival at the airport and asked where he was going. When our volunteer replied, “Jerusalem,” Emiliano joined him on a bus and struck up a conversation with him, recommending a youth hostel in the Israeli capital near the Damascus Gate. Destination: The Faisal Youth Hostel in East Jerusalem.

ISM activist Joseph Smith, alias Joseph Carr, has called the Faisal Youth Hostel “ISM headquarters” in Jerusalem. Carr was involved in the death of Rachel Corrie. Smith/Carr tours US colleges to drum up new ISM recruits. Two of his acolytes with the ISM from St. Louis, Missouri -- Magan Wiles and Jennifer Presson -- are also under scrutiny by the Israeli security services.


The Faisal Youth Hostel, meanwhile, is managed by the main lead trainer for many ISM “volunteers,” Hisham Jam Joun, a “former” PFLP terrorist wounded while fighting Israelis in Lebanon over a decade ago. While Israel’s Interior Ministry is responsible for closing down such a place, including another youth hostel next door frequented by the ISM called the Hebron Youth Hostel, it has taken no action against this hostel.

Once he arrived at the Faisal Youth Hostel, our volunteer was greeted and brought upstairs immediately to meet some friendly faces -- leaders of the ISM in the West Bank. These people included Gabi and Dave, both from Ireland. Gabi is Swedish with an Irish passport and her husband Dave is an Irish national. ISM activists use Irish passports frequently to enter Israel, sometimes under assumed names. Patrick O’Connor, an Irishman and an ISM-New York leader and organizer, has also used a U.S. passport with the name Patrick Connors. Brian Malovany, an acolyte of Paul LaRudee’s, is a US citizen and ISM trainer who uses an Irish passport obtained by using his grandmother’s Irish ancestry.

Also properly introduced to our infiltrator were Camille, a Danish volunteer, and Alan, from Scotland. All were affiliated with the ISM and have passed back and forth from the West Bank to Israel. Miliano made clear he is an American of Mexican heritage. Two other Americans joined this entourage. One was an African-American named Jonathon M. K. Amayo from the Los Angeles area in California and his girlfriend from Los Angeles. Gabi was clearly in charge of the group our infiltrator attended. Alan is from Scotland and entered Israel through Jordan, a tactic the ISM is using more frequently since border checks used at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv tend to be strict. Only recently did the Israeli border control begin noting in computers if someone had already been turned away elsewhere.

From left to right, Alan, the ISMer from Scotland (in baseball cap), an unknown Arab man, Camille, the ISMer from Denmark, David, an ISM leader from Ireland and ISM pack leader, Gabi, a Swede who resides in Cork, Ireland. The women are disguised as Orthodox Jewish women, even though neither are Jewish. Later joined by Emiliano, they encouraged our infiltrator to join the ISM at the Faisal Youth Hostel. Behind Alan wrapped in white cloth is an arms cache containing deadly Ak-47 assault rifles.


According to Stop the ISM’s volunteer, “The ISM are sending young people from all over the world to the training fields of the West Bank and Gaza to learn from terrorists. In my view that makes the ISM and its leadership a supporter of terrorism...President Bush said ‘either you are with us or with the terrorists.’ What better proof is there than what can be seen in these photos?”

Gabi laughs it up while Alan, the other ISM volunteer who works at the Faisal Youth Hostel, smiles with his machine gun. To the far right is the al Aksa Martyrs Brigade terrorist overseeing the festivities. Real “peace activists” don’t pose with machine guns in the company of terrorists, but the ISM does. The above photo was shot at the Jericho Prison in the West Bank.


The revelations of this article should serve as a wakeup call to the Interior Ministry in Israel and the Department of Homeland Security here in the United States. Our volunteer told me that guns were brought out of the cache by the Palestinians present and that the ISM “peace activists” were laughing and anxious to hold them. Do the hardcore ISM activists in the West Bank undergo weapons training by the PLO and Hamas? One e-mail sent to our volunteer by Dave from the West Bank contained an ominous sentence in it: “Palestinians are growing tired of nonviolent resistance.” Non-violent resistance? Israel has experienced over 25,000 terrorist attacks on its civilians since year 2000. Is the next intifada soon to commence? If so, what will be the ISM's role in it?

Due to the bureaucratic delays of Israel’s intelligence services, Gabi and Camille managed to get out of Israel before being apprehended. Both are no doubt recruiting other ISM activists back home in Ireland and Denmark, respectively. However, thanks to our volunteer and Stop the ISM’s team efforts, Dave from Ireland and Alan from Scotland are both currently in Israeli custody.
There is lots more to this article, including lots more pictures. Read the whole thing.
