Community Alert: Racist Anti-Semite Poses as Local Activist
03 Mar 2007
Modified: 01:06:16 AM
In the past few days, it has become abundantly clear that what was thought by some to be the ignorant raving of a local anti-Semite is actually the spread of white supremacist propaganda.
Though he has been asked to stop posting on local radical email lists, Pete L (using the email address proudline (at) yahoo.com) has continued to spread racist, anti-Semitic propaganda throughout the Boston community.
Pete L has gained infamy over the months for posing as a Palestinian solidarity activist who repeatedly equated Zionism to Judiasm. Countless individuals, many of them Jewish anarchists who oppose the Israeli occupation, have repeatedly pointed out the difference between the Zionist political movement and the Jewish religion and heritage. Despite this, Pete L continued to rail against Jews, making wild assertions about Jewish control over the United States government.

In the early hours of March 3, 2007, in response to Pete L's most recent email, an email went out drawing the connection between Pete L (or proudline (at) yahoo.com) and David Duke, "onetime Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan,founder of the National Association for the Advancement of White People, and the The National Organization For European American Rights, and radio host and participant in the notorious Neo-Nazi site Stormfront". As the email points out, "THE ENTIRE POST (minus the graceful introduction) is a reprint of an article by none other than racist and white supremacist David Duke, with the name of the author deleted."

THIS POST IS GOING OUT AS A COMMUNITY ALERT
Be aware of the fact that Pete L, or proudline (at) yahoo.com, is posing as a Palestinian solidarity activist and attempting to create rifts within our community by spreading his neo-Nazi literature. His posts are racist and anti-Semitic, not to mention lacking factual evidence.

We will not allow messages of racism or anti-Semetism to be spread through our channels of communication. This hatred is not welcome in our community. We will continue to struggle against the oppressive Israeli occupation and white supremacists in our own communities.
THIS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED

[bostonanarchists] Massacre celebration to consume human flesh cookies, make noise and pray for attack on Iran.


This weekend is the celebration of the massacre of
thousands of Persians and local zionists will praying
and howling up a storm for more war on Iran. So watch out for the warmongers dressing up, rattling up a lot of noise and eating Iranian flesh cookies!

"Israeli" Army imposes complete closure on West Bank ahead of Purim

Source: Haaretz, 02-03-2007

The "Israeli" Army imposed a complete closure on the West Bank and Gaza Strip at midnight Thursday, ahead of the Jewish holiday of Purim, which begins Saturday night. The closure is to last until midnight on Monday.

"The `Israeli` Army regards the holiday period as a
highly sensitive time, security wise."


Extremist Jews Seek New Purim Massacre in Iran

The twenty-five hundred year old Jewish celebration of Purim approaches on March 3.

Purim is the Jewish celebration of the murder of the Persian Prime Minister, Haman for supposedly plotting a conspiracy against the Jews. Haman was hung along with all of his ten sons, and 75,000 hapless Persians were slaughtered.

Ironically, the time of Purim in 2003 was chosen for the launch of the Iraq War, a war orchestrated by Jewish extremists and Israeli partisans in the American government and media against a nation that posed no threat to the United States. Iraq was however Israel’s strategic enemy, and Saddam was painted across the Jewish world community as a new “Haman.” The Iraq War has been a complete catastrophe for America, with over 30,000 Americans wounded and maimed, over 3000 killed, and a huge cost that will inevitably amount to trillions of American dollars. America was told that this war was to end the terrorist threat against America, but all this Jewish-extremist, manipulated war has done is create a world of hatred against America and millions of potential terrorists who want to do us harm. In short, this was a war against Iraq, but also one against America, for it harmed not only the half million Iraqis killed by the war and its aftermath, but harmed every true American interest.

Now, again at the time of Purim, America’s arsenal is again pointed toward Israel’s enemy: Iran. More of our sons and daughters make ready to be sacrificed on the altar of Israel’s paranoia. If this war commences it could well be the last act of the American republic turned empire. It will also throw the entire world in chaos and unleash hate and terrorism against Americans at home and abroad for years to come. Iran is the ancient nation of Persia, and Iran’s President is being made into a new Haman. Jewish powerbrokers around the world are initiating a orgy of hate and lies against him and against Iran and are calling for the destruction of this new Haman along with tens of thousands of Iranians in a new Purim massacre.

A search on the Internet of Iran and Purim will reveal thousands of comparisons of Iran and Purim, President Ahmadinejad and Haman.

For instance, Rabbi Michael Bernstein wrote a recent Op-Ed piece for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency titled “Purim’s revelry conceals message about absurdity of Jews’ salvation.” His article suggests that President Ahmadinejad of Iran is a new Haman who threatens the Jews and America with genocide.

He begins the article by condemning the Iranian President for re-envisioning the history of the Holocaust; he attacks me as “White supremacist” and says I called “Wolf Blitzer a tool of the Zionist Conspiracy;” and he attacks a rabbi who attended the Holocaust Conference in Tehran as “a fervently Orthodox rabbi,…who hugged his Iranian host and decried the “Zionists’ manipulation of Jewish suffering.”

At least Bernstein got it partially right about the rabbi’s remarks about the “Zionist manipulation of Jewish suffering,” but about me he got it completely wrong. Bernstein and almost anyone else can say anything they want about me without contradiction (in the press that is). He calls me a “White supremacist,” which I am not. In actual fact, I am in the opposite of a supremacist; I don’t want my people to be supreme over anyone. I believe every people, including my own, should free and independent. I repeat this everyday of my life; you can read it and hear it again and again on my Internet site, www.davidduke.com.

Extremist Jews such as Bernstein, are the real supremacists who support Apartheid Israel and believe that “the Chosen” have some divine right to take other people’s lands, bomb and murder and commit terror at will, develop and use chemical, nuclear and biological weapons while forbidding even rudimentary self defense for any other people who might not endorse Jewish and Israeli supremacy over them. They don’t believe that standards of humanity and decency that apply to everyone else should also apply to them.

For the record, extremist Jews like Bernstein lie as naturally as they breathe, they are exactly as Jesus Christ pegged them 2000 years ago when he called them, “the fathers of lie.” Bernstein wrote that I called Blitzer a “tool of the Zionist Conspiracy.” Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I never use the buzz word “conspiracy.” Also, for the record, I did not call Wolf Blitzer a “tool,” I said flat out that he is a Jewish extremist agent for Israel. Here are excerpts from the CNN transcript, “Duke: I think you’re biased because you’re a former lobbyist for AIPAC. You’re a Jewish extremist, supporter of Israel, so you want to bias anyone who criticizes Zionism… You’re not an honest broker on television…. You’re an Israeli agent.”

Blitzer names the President, Vice-President and other Gentiles in government and then asks me, “Are these people simply tools of the Zionist conspiracy?”

To which I answer, “They’re not tools of a conspiracy, but they are definitely tools of the Zionist media and political power. Even the “Washington Post” said that 60 percent of the contributions for the Republican Party come from Jewish sources. Plus, if any politician in America dares to criticize Israel, millions will go to his opponents and he will be attacked in the media where Zionists have incredible power.

So Bernstein is caught in two bald-faced lies which the CNN transcript proves. I did not call Blitzer a tool of a “Jewish conspiracy,” in fact when Blitzer uses the term “Jewish conspiracy,” I specifically refute the word conspiracy and state that they are simply tools of Jewish media and political power. Notice how my actual statement is a lot more rational and convincing than the made up, “tools of a Jewish conspiracy” lie. Rabbi Bernstein and his extremist Jewish brethren in media correctly understand that if my words are accurately quoted, people will see the reason, intelligence and decency in them, so they lie and distort my words. They lie, lie, and lie again. Such policy backfires somewhat on them, especially in the Internet Age, for when the curious actually go to my website, www.davidduke.com, they see words and arguments that are completely different from how the mainstream, Jewish-influenced media portray me. They hear a man who is not hateful, a man opposed to war and hatred and oppression. They also see a man who is unalterably for freedom of speech and conscience. Finally, they learn of the real supremacism and ethnic and religious extremism that has been so carefully hidden by the mainstream media.

Since Extremist Jews are using the Purim celebrations to fuel a proposed murderous attack on Iran, it is vital that non-Jews acquire a fundamental understanding of the unconscionable hatred engendered by this primitive Jewish celebration of atavistic hatred, murder and revenge against their enemies, a feast called “Purim.”

So, what is Purim?

According to the Jewish religion, Purim means “Feast of Lots” which comes from the Jewish contention that Haman, who was the Prime Minister to the King of Persia, Xerxes (the Jews call him Ahasuerus), planned to kill all the Jews in the empire. Xerxes’ wife was the Jewish Esther and she with the Jewish leader Mordechai interceded with the King, to have Haman executed and allow the Jews to exact revenge upon those they saw as their enemies. There is no archeological or historical evidence for any of this other than the bloodthirsty writings in Esther and it’s admittedly Jewish version of the events. The book of Esther records that Haman along with all of his ten sons were hanged, and that 75,000 Persians were slaughtered by the marauding Jews.

Interestingly enough, the Jews used Jewish influence (that of Esther) over a Gentile king to do their dirty work. In one instance, the book of Esther even frankly tells how the king was fooled into believing wrongly that Haman had cut down his beloved grove of trees. Esther explains that Haman did not do this but the angels did it and appeared to the keepers of the trees as Haman. Perhaps the angels’ were similar to Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz, and the head of CIA intelligence on Iraq, Stuart Cohen, who told lies to President Bush and America about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction and how he was a threat to America.

jewish-children-beating-and-hanging-haman.jpgOf course, we don’t hear Haman’s side of things, and we don’t hear the true translation of Ahmadinejad’s supposed “wipe Israel off the map” statement. It makes no difference that Iran’s President didn’t even use the word “map” or even the word “Israel” in the offending statement. In fact, President Ahmadinejad called for no genocide, no wiping of Israel off the map, but simply said he thought the world would see the passing of the Zionist regime similar to what occurred in the fall of the Communist Regime in Russia. Still, the lie that he said he would “wipe Israel off the map” is being read or heard millions of times in newspapers or from televisions every day all over the world.

Over the centuries, this Jewish celebration of the murderous punishment of Haman and the supposed anti-Semites at Purim has become like a Mardi Gras celebration, but one with a shocking orgy of hate and hateful symbols, and it even includes foods symbolic of revenge and gore.

In the synagogues Jewish children beat branches recreating the beating of Haman. They have skits where they symbolically hang children made up to look like him. They also scream and shout and curse his name in Synagogues during their reading of what they call the Megillah (the Jewish account of their massacre of Haman and the Persians). Here is quote from the most respected newspaper in Israel, The Jerusalem Post in an article called “How to Purim,” By Robin Treistman:

The reading of the Megillah can last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour and a half. What factor causes the variance? Simply the reaction to the name “Haman.” If the crowd goes wild every time the name Haman is read (which happens in most services) the reading can get drawn out. The point of this custom is to “beat” or take revenge on Haman. We boo, hiss, beat, and curse Haman.

kreplach-and-hamantaschen.jpgEven more disgusting than this display of hatred in a house of worship are the foods especially prepared for Purim, the two most famous are Hamantaschen, or “Haman’s ears,” and Kreplach. Hamantaschen are triangular-shaped dough pockets meant to symbolize Haman’s ears and Kreplach are dough pockets filled with ground beef symbolizing the beaten flesh of Haman. Does this sound appetizing? I am not making this up. Here is a quote directly from Bar-Ilan University near Tel Aviv from their pamphlet created by the faculty called The Laws and Customs of Purim:

1.”Haman Taschen” (Oznei Haman = Haman’s Ears): In the Ashkenazi communities these triangular baked pockets filled with poppy seed or other sweet fillings are ever-present. The custom originates in Eastern Europe, Ashkenaz (Germany) and Italy. They have become the most well known and widespread Purim delicacy in all communities the world over.

2. “Kreplach”: chopped meat covered with dough, also triangular in shape. The name has received a popular etymology: “Kreplach are eaten only on days on which there is both hitting and eating: Yom Kippur eve - the custom of Kaparot, Hoshanna Rabba - the beating the willow branches, Purim - the (symbolical) beating of Haman”.

Wherein does the difference lie? It appears that the source of the difference is in the nature of the threat on the two different occasions in history. Haman aspired to destroy, kill, and eliminate the entire Jewish people - physical destruction. Antiochus [Chanukah], on the other hand, desired the cultural assimilation of the People of Israel.

What is the lesson of Purim to the Jewish religion and to Jews everywhere, including powerful extremist Jews such as Perle and Wolfowitz? The rabbi of the oldest synagogue in Washington, D.C., Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld, explains it to his fellow Jews on the Internet in his article, “Bringing the Light to the Nations,” Purim, 5764. Rabbi Herzfeld is no lightweight Jew. His synagogue is important enough to be referred as the National Synagogue of the United States and Herzfeld is National Vice-President of a major Jewish organization, Coalition of Jewish Concerns—Amcha.

Rabbi Herzfeld tells that most Jewish commentators understand the lesson as need to commit genocide on those seen as enemies of Jews, not just on the transgressors but their descendants as well. Here is an excerpt:

Most commentators understand the Purim story as correcting King Shaul’s failure to wipe out Amalek. The first king of Israel was Shaul the son of Kish. He was appointed king by the prophet, Shmuel. Shmuel commands him to wipe out Amalek—to kill all the people, as well as all the animals. Shmuel defeats Amalek, yet he shows mercy upon the King of Amalek, Agag, and allows him to live. In addition, he takes the best of the animals as booty. When Shmuel hears this he tells Shaul, “karah Hashem et mamlachut Yisrael me-alekha, God has torn away the Kingship of Israel from you.” Thus, Shaul loses the kingdom on account of the fact that he did not kill Agag and the Jews took the booty of Amalek.

Mordechai is a descendant of Shaul. He is Mordechai ben Yair…ben Kish, from the tribe of Benjamin. Mordechai does battle with Haman the Agagite, a descendant of King Agag. Mordechai defeats Haman and kills not only him, but also his ten sons. Mordechai shows no mercy upon Agag’s descendant Haman…

As most commentators explain, Mordechai fixes the damage done by Shaul’s sin. Where Shaul could not kill Agag, Mordechai kills Haman; where Shaul took the booty of Amalek, Mordechai does not allow the Jews to take the booty of Haman.

The lesson is clear, when it comes to Gentile enemies, you must show no mercy, completely wipe them out, “kill all the people, as well as all the animals.” Mordecai, the hero of Purim, doesn’t make that mistake, and he sees the lesson as very clear, Jews today shouldn’t make that mistake either.

The mainstream Jews as represented by the National Synagogue take this message to heart. Unfortunately, many other Jews have done so as well. One Jew who did so was Rabbi Baruch Goldstein who on Purim in 1994 went into the religious Shrine of the Patriarchs and while they knelt in prayer, Goldstein used a machine gun to kill 30 and wound 150 Palestinians. Fortunately, there are a few courageous Jewish rabbis, a small minority, who recognize the hate and extremism promoted by Purim. Rabbi Arthur Waskow speaks about it in his article, The Renewal of Purim and the Fast of Esther.

…The hilarity of Purim will be shadowed by the horror of the Purim of 1994 — the mass murder of 30 Muslims prostrate in prayer, carried out by a religiously committed Jew who said he was acting in the name of God…

…The date of the Hebron massacre was no accident of timing: Purim itself played a role in creating that horror….

Another Jewish voice, Rabbi J. Jacobs also reveals the hateful nature of Purim and the association of non-Jews, such as Palestinians, with Amalek.

In recent years, some have likened the Palestinians to Amalek and, as such, have justified any violence against this people. It is no coincidence that Baruch Goldstein, a fanatical Jewish settler in the West Bank, chose Purim day to carry out his 1994 massacre of Palestinian worshipers in Hebron. When equated, by those of a certain political viewpoint, to the contemporary Jewish experience, the Purim story becomes an incitement to violence and not simply a satire about a distant time and place. The seriousness with which some have understood the megillah’s apparent sanction of mass murder demands that those of us bothered by the ending of the story offer an equally serious ethical response.

praying-for-death-purim.jpgHowever, the ethical response has not come, and Jewish groups around the world are ramping up the hate engendered at Purim toward a man the Jewish extremists consider the latest Haman. According to The Jerusalem Post on February 26, 2007, Jewish extremists in Israel are organizing 10,000 Jewish children to pray for the death of President Ahmadinejad of Iran.

Feb. 26, 2007 8:59
Kids’ prayers aimed against Ahmadinejad
By Matthew WagnerHoping for a modern-day reoccurrence of Purim’s miraculous story of redemption from a Persian ruler, a Jerusalem-based kabbalist hopes to battle Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s nuclear threat with children’s prayers.

On Sunday at the Succat David elementary school, Rabbi David Batzri, head of the Shalom Yeshiva, launched a nationwide campaign to enlist 10,000 young children in a prayer rally against Ahmadinejad before Purim.

The caption on the photo accompanying the article reads:

Ultra Orthodox boys attend a special prayer calling for the death of Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, at a religious school in Jerusalem, Sunday.

Understanding the genocidal and hateful source of the Purim story is essential to understanding the radical Jewish extremism that permeates far too much of the mainstream Jewish community. In the Purim story, a supposed conspiracy to kill Jews in mass is used as a justification for Jews to commit a genocide of their own that they boisterously celebrate every year for 2500 years. They use the lesson of Purim as a lesson not of love and redemption, but a celebration of hate and the need to be completely merciless with their enemies.

Now, Zionist extremists with extensive power in media and governments around the world are planning a new genocide. This time it is against Iran. Similarly to their campaign of lies and influence with King Xerxes, they lie to our leaders and public and tell us that Iran has genocidal intentions not just against Israel but to the world. They even tell us that Iran is a threat to America. They combine the repeated lie that Iran’s President called for “wiping Israel off the map” with disputing (with not a single concrete fact) Iran’s peaceful pursuit of Nuclear energy, a pursuit that has allowed U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (I.A.E.A.) inspections. As always the double standard with “the Chosen” is striking. Israel has never allowed inspections of the chemical, biological and nuclear weapons facilities.

In another article in the Jerusalem Post giving Internet lessons for young Jews, it says:

“And recognizing the sly Haman who wants to destroy us is important, because there seems to be a Haman in every generation.
And so on Purim we celebrate our escape from a long line of “Hamans” that stretches down through history and around the world! ”
To these hateful Jewish extremists the new Haman is Ahmadinejad. If they are successful in creating hate and war against him, in murderously attacking Iran and us in the process, they will unleash war, terrorism, economic depression and untold suffering for millions of people all over the world.

The final paragraph of The Jerusalem Post article is itself a lesson the depth of self-deception about Purim to Jews themselves, and deception about Purim to us, the Gentiles of the world.

This Purim custom is a way of letting our fellows know that we are celebrating the survival and continuity of the Jewish people and a way of expressing our love of our neighbors.

And what better treat to deliver on this occasion than a plate of “Haman’s Ears”?

Yes, how could I be so “anti-Semitic” not to think that eating a plate of Haman’s ears is a wonderful expression of love for your neighbor?

eating-hamantaschen.jpg
Now that Saddam has been hanged similar to Haman, and now that Iraq has 500,000 dead and well over a million injured and harmed from this Jewish-manipulated war, will we find Jews consuming with glee Saddam’s ears in the synagogues of the world?

Many of the Jewish extremists are now insanely lobbying for the “nuclear option” against Iran. If these Jewish supremacists have their way and are able to manipulate a catastrophic war against Iran, will they invent new foods next year, perhaps microwaved meat symbolizing the radiated flesh of Ahmadinejad and the hundreds of thousands of nuclear radiated Iranians.

What better way for Zionists to “express their love of their neighbors than a nice plate of “Haman’s ears.”

This year at the time of Purim, the world needs to know and understand the Jewish extremist hatred that leads us to a horrific war against Iran. We hear constantly about the threat of Muslim extremism. When will we hear about the far greater threat of Jewish extremism that leads the world to Armageddon in Iran. Unless we prevent this act of Jewish hatred and murder, not only will the Iranians terribly suffer, but so will Americans and people all over the world.

Nat'l Leftist Lawyers' Guild defending a neo-Nazi?

http://www.nlgmass.org/news.html (Nat'l Lawyers Guild):

Defending Political Protesters

Guild member Beverly Chorbajian is currently embroiled in the defense of Pete Lowney in the Concord District Court. Pete was arrested last October when he was protesting the appearance of a representative of the Israeli government at a Lexington synagogue. Pete and four other demonstrators were peacefully standing on the sidewalk, holding signs. Pete was the only one arrested and was charged with trespass, disorderly, AB on a PO and resisting arrest. After numerous delays, the trial finally got started in September. However, midway through the first government witness' testimony, a mistrial was granted due to the government's failure to disclose its reports to the defense. After lashing out at the Lexington PD for their sorry history of coming in with reports they never disclosed to either side, Judge McKenna ordered a mistrial and all parties expect to be back at it in November.

So, here we have a nat'l leftist lawyers' org defending a neo-Nazi -- interesting, eh?
