Recently, Boston area "activist" Pete Lowney posted to several activist lists an article by the white supremacist, Nazi sympathizer and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, with the author deleted.

The message was a reprint of the top story on

This is anti-Semitism. It cannot and will not be tolerated in the movement. Especially when Pete Lowney dares to put out this anti-Semitic garbage in the name of the Palestinian freedom struggle and the all important struggle to stop the war on the people of Iran.

2. Every Boston activist, if you see Pete Lowney at any event or action, is urged to call him out publicly and take any other action you deem appropriate for an anti-Semite, racist, and white supremacist in your midst. Every activist is urged to email proudline (at), or contact him by any other means, and let him know what you think of his bullshit.

Here is more info on 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:;t=141878

Responses to Pete Lowney's email to activist lists:

Title: "Massacre celebration to consume human flesh cookies, make noise..."

Courtesy of Pete L., this is a reenactment of the historical Blood Libels against the Jews, which kings and rulers have used for over a thousand years to justify massacres and pogroms against the Jewish people, and pit oppressed peoples against each other to distract them from their real

"Purim is the Jewish celebration of the murder of the Persian Prime Minister, Haman for supposedly plotting a conspiracy against the Jews."

It's revealing that Pete L. likes to choose Jewish holidays to unleash his hate. Actually, Purim is the celebration of the revolt of the Jewish people and the palace workers against the Persian ruling class under the reign of Xerxes. In response to a government decree for the killing of all Jews, an attempted genocide, the Jews and other oppressed people armed themselves and rebelled against their rulers and would-be killers.

The "Book of Esther" is a legend, but the historical record is clear. Everything Pete L./David Duke is saying is an attempt to slander the resistance of the Jewish people and their common cause with other Semitic peoples.

"Ironically, the time of Purim in 2003 was chosen for the launch of the Iraq War, a war orchestrated by Jewish extremists...all this Jewish-extremist, manipulated war has done is create a world of hatred against America..."

The Iraq war orchestrated by "Jewish" extremists?
Yeah fucking right. The war was orchestrated by an axis of evil of big corporations on a quest for
profit (no U.S. oil company is owned by any Jews), Christian fundamentalists on a self-described "crusade" against Islam, and a foreign policy establishment bent on U.S. empire (Project for a New American Century).

"The Iraq War has been a complete catastrophe for America...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...[it] harmed every true American interest."

"Every true American interest?" Yeah, that's why we should oppose the war. Not because of the murder of 650,000+ Iraqis, or the U.S. takeover of
another people's resources, or the cost of occupation to poor communities. No, instead, we should fear more "terrorists who want to do us harm" and mourn only white "Americans" and their loss of lives, money, security, and power.

Thank Pete L. and David Duke for their wisdom.

"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,

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,, 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?

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.

Max Fisher, Keystone Oil, Aurora Oil, and Marathon Oil:

In 1985 Max Fisher, a top adviser on Jewish affairs and Middle East policy to every Repubican President since Eisenhower, founded what is now known as the Republican Jewish Coalition, of which Fisher, 93, remains honorary chairman. A March 11, 1998 Jerusalem Post article reports that Fisher is looking for a replacement, and among those being considered are Mega co-founder Leslie Wexner, suspected Mega member Ronald S. Lauder, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz.

Fisher amassed his fortune as a bagman for the "Purple Gang" that smuggled Sam (Segrams) Bronfman's booze from Canada into the speakeasies of the Midwest. Fisher made his "legitimate" fortune in the oil retail business, through Keystone Oil, Aurora Oil, and Marathon Oil. Fisher later became chairman of United Brands (a.k.a. United Fruit), a firm accused of major narcotics smuggling from South America.

Laurence Tisch, Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc.

: Called "The King of Cash," Tisch built his fortune one step at a time. On his return from World War II, where he served in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency, Laurence Tisch joined his family's small hotel business.

Tisch, with his brother Preston "Bob" Tisch, built a major hotel chain, forming the holding company Loews Corporation, that also included a chain of movie theaters. And, Loews acquired Lorillard Tobacco in 1960, which produced Kent cigarettes.

By the 1980s of the "Predator's Ball," Laurence Tisch worked with convicted inside-trader Michael Milken, who originated junk bonds, through which Tisch gained fame for his 1986 takeover of the Colombia Broadcasting System. In 1995, Tisch had to sell off CBS to Westinghouse.

Loews Corp. today also owns CNA Financial Corp., as well as having a controlling share in an offshore oil and gas drilling firm, Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc., and a controlling interest in Bulova Watch Company.

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?

Response to Pete L.'s anti-Semitic post and his endorsement of white supremacist David Duke

First off, 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. Thanks for the contribution, Pete

The top story on

Here is more info on 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:

Before I put the pieces together and realized this was authored by David Duke, I wrote up some responses to this scum and I think it's worth reading.

Title: "Massacre celebration to consume human flesh cookies, make noise..."

Courtesy of Pete L., this is a reenactment of the historical Blood Libels against the Jews, which kings and rulers have used for over a thousand
years to justify massacres and pogroms against the Jewish people, and pit oppressed peoples against each other to distract them from their real enemy.

"Purim is the Jewish celebration of the murder of the Persian Prime Minister, Haman for supposedly plotting a conspiracy against the Jews."

It's revealing that Pete L. likes to choose Jewish holidays to unleash his hate. Actually, Purim is the celebration of the revolt of the Jewish
people and the palace workers against the Persian ruling class under the reign of Xerxes. In response to a government decree for the killing of all Jews, an attempted genocide, the Jews and other oppressed people armed themselves and rebelled against their rulers and would-be killers.

The "Book of Esther" is a legend, but the historical record is clear.Everything you've said is an attempt to slander the resistance of the
Jewish people and their common cause with other Semitic peoples.

"Ironically, the time of Purim in 2003 was chosen for the launch of the Iraq War, a war orchestrated by Jewish extremists...all this
Jewish-extremist, manipulated war has done is create a world of hatred against America..."

The Iraq war orchestrated by "Jewish" extremists? Yeah fucking right. The
war was orchestrated by an axis of evil of big corporations on a quest for
profit (no U.S. oil company is owned by any Jews), Christian fundamentalists on a self-described "crusade" against Islam, and a
foreign policy establishment bent on U.S. empire (Project for a New American Century).

"The Iraq War has been a complete catastrophe for America...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...[it] harmed every true American interest."

"Every true American interest?" Yeah, that's why we should oppose the war. Not because of the murder of 650,000+ Iraqis, or the U.S. takeover of another people's resources, or the cost of occupation to poor communities.
No, instead, we should fear more "terrorists who want to do us harm" and mour white "Americans" and their loss of lives, money, security, and power.

Thank you for your wisdom, David Duke and Pete L., Best Friends Forever.


It is not progressive to attack anti-imperialist activists
04 Mar 2007
Pete L's post was perfectly appropriate. Pro-war zionist imperialist groups that self-describe themselves as "Jewish" are using the Purim holiday this year today to agitate for war against Iran. This is important information for anti-imperialist activists, including anarchists, to know.

Shadowboxer, aka Mike GW, has stated offensive racist views against Muslims, Arabs and Persians on many occasions and has been pushing for war against Iran.

Mike protested against former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government last September and was quoted
as criticizing Khatami for supporting Hizballah. idArticle=12686&R=EEB392E I was there with some anti-war protesters holding signs opposing war against Iran.

I saw a lot of zionists there protesting against Khatami with signs calling for war against Iran. So Mike, in protesting against Khatami was a pro-war protester, and was criticizing Khatami for supporting the people's resistance in Lebanon - Hizballah - who had just repelled an unprovoked and brutal zionist war of aggression against Lebanon. Hizballah had also a few years earlier driven the zionist occupying force out of Lebanon after an 18 year zionist military occupation of southern Lebanon.

Mike identified himself to the press at the anti-Iran protest as a member of "Harvard's Progressive Jewish Alliance" (PJA). PJA's
website lists Mike as an officer .
PJA is a zionist or at best left-zionist group. Its principles are "Although it is an open organization and not all members agree about
all issues, PJA is committed to: Progressive views on Israeli politics, Progressive views on domestic politics, Working towards
just and sustainable peace, Rights for Israelis and Palestinians." This is not an anti-zionist position as it does not address the key
issues regarding Palestine: ending "Jewish" supremacist rule in all of Palestine and allowing all Palestinian refugees to return to their
homes. PJA's website has links sections on "progressive jewish organizations" and "israel/Palestine", but there are no anti-zionist websites in these links - they range from left zionist to hardcore rightwing zionist warmongering links. Several of the so-called
"progressive jewish organizations" are zionist to the point where they have sections of their website for "aliyah" or "birthright", i.e., encouraging "Jews" to go settle in Palestine. Several of the linked groups push war against Sudan on their websites. I think the worst group linked is JCRC Boston JCRC Boston is a very active racist (anti-Muslim, anti-Arab, anti-African, anti-Persian) hate group. They hold racist pro-war and pro-zionist events on a more often than weekly basis. They held rallies in
support of the zionist attack on Lebanon last summer. They hold numerous racist pro-war propaganda events against Sudan. They have a
whole pro-war anti-Iran section of their website
and they have held pro-war events against Iran including mobilizing people for the anti-Iran protest at KSG that Mike participated in.
There was recently a report that JCRC Boston's leadership went to a national convention of similar groups and were the most hawkish
people there on Iran. (this report is even posted on JCRC Boston/ CJP's own website
ArticleID=210882) JCRC Boston raises and spends millions of dollars much of which used for its racist warmongering propaganda. JCRC
Boston has even participated in attacking the Islamic Society of Boston trying to prevent them from building their mosque in Roxbury.
It is outrageous that anyone would call JCRC Boston or most of the other linked groups "progressive".

Before I continue about Iran, pro-war zionists and Purim, one more example of racist remarks that Mike made: In November and December
2004, there was a series of meetings in the building that has since become the so-called "Democracy Center" to plan an anti-war rally and march starting on Boston Common. At one of the meetings I suggested that the program of the rally should include an expression of support for the Iraqi Resistance. Mike got up and said that we can't support the Iraqi Resistance because the Iraqi Resistance "are killing the working class youth of America". Mike then went on in emails with a lame argument that the Iraqis are allowed to shoot back while the Americans are shooting at them but that Iraqis are not allowed to take any other military actions against the US soldiers in Iraq. These soldiers were and are occupying the Iraqis' country and perpetrating genocide against the Iraqis. But Mike blamed the
victims and said that the Iraqi Resistance were the problem in Iraq.

JCRC Boston for the past month has been urging all rabbis to use this weekend's Purim holiday to preach about the so-called "threat" from
Iran and to push for war against Iran.
{E4E4B730-2DDE-46B1-8C2E-8505C72F9978}&seid= or

JCRC says, "This particular shabbat was chosen based on its proximity to Purim, when a different Persian leader conspired to kill
the Jews.". In New York City zionist "Jews" held a pro-war rally outside the Iranian mission to the UN on Thursday demonizing Iran
with inflammatory language referencing the Purim story on their flyer Purim is a celebration of the events in the Book of Esther. Reading of the book of Esther is part of the observance of Purim. I encourage people to actually read the Book of Esther. It isn't very long. The translation I read last night is at
The story is that the King of Persia's wife, who is a Jew, discovers a plot by one of the Persian ministers to kill all the Jews. She tells the king and foils the plot and has the minister executed. And then even though the plot was foiled and no Jews were killed, the Jews go on a killing spree massacring seventy-five thousand people (Esther Ch 9 #16). Then the Purim holiday is declared to celebrate this (Esther Ch 9 #19). The Book of Esther is an ancient religious text and has spiritual importance rather than necessarily being historically accurate. There certainly may be many religious Jews now who in
their Purim observances don't emphasize the Jewish massacre of non- Jews in the story and don't relate the events in the Book of Esther
to historical events or to current political events. However there really are zionist pro-war groups claiming to be "Jewish" in Boston
and the northeast region of the "U.S". and in Palestine who are using or misusing Purim this year to demonize Iran and its president, to
falsely accuse Iran of being a threat, and to call for war against Iran. I wish Pete had wrote this information up himself or found an article from a different source so that we would be discussing the problem - people using or misusing Judaism to justify wars and slaughter of Muslims and Arabs and Persians and to justify Jewish-
supremacist colonial rule in Palestine - rather than talking about David Duke. But regardless of the source, David Duke's article - which was not the entirety of Pete's post - is basically correct in many of its points.

Muslims, Arabs, Persians and Africans are among the groups that are currently really victimized and oppressed and even subject to genocide or threatened with genocide by US and zionist imperialism. "Jews" are not currently an oppressed group. And many zionist
imperialist pro-war organizations claim to represent "Jews". So when someone posts to an anti-imperialist email list about what "Jews" are
doing, the word "Jew" is usually referring to a zionist imperialist racist political tendency that self-identifies itself as "Jewish". If there are activists who self-identify as "Jews" but who are not part of this rightwing "Jewish" political movement, then these activists should be fighting against the rightwing movement and
against zionism and imperialism rather than attacking anti-zionist anti-imperialist anti-racist activists like Pete who are pointing out
that well-financed self-identified "Jewish" groups are agitating for more imperialist war. There are some anti-zionist "Jewish" groups
in New York who do good work. But in the Boston area and Massachusetts as far as I know there is not one anti-zionist "Jewish" group and not one "Jewish" group here who opposes the imperialist war against Sudan. There are some anti-zionist anti-imperialist individuals here who identify as "Jewish". But for the most part
groups like JCRC Boston are unchallenged in their use of the word "Jewish" to label their racist zionist imperialist ideology and program. I think that anyone who is genuinely anti-zionist and anti- imperialist but who is a member of "Jewish" groups in this area should either quit the "Jewish" groups or should actively work to get their "Jewish" organization to take anti-zionist anti-imperialist positions. It is not progressive to attack anti-imperialist activists because we speak out against racist zionist imperialist "Jewish" groups.

Sorry about that. This list has gone largely unmoderated for awhile now. I think the only admin people left in town are me, Tania, and

Anyways, looking over some of the provocative emails from "Pete L." I think it is safe to say that he has crossed the line from "anti-zionist" to straight-up anti-semitism on a number of occasions. This type of behavior has no place in any anarchist community, and I have taken the liberty of freely disassociating him from the list.

Pete hasn't said anything anti-semitic. First of all European Jews, i.e., most "Jews" are not Semitic. Arabs particularly those from Palestine and near Palestine are Semitic. So even being anti-Jewish would not be anti-semitism. However Pete's posts have been referring to a powerful zionist imperialist political movement that self-identifies itself as being "Jewish" . Posts critical of a political movement, especially a movement that is involved in committing genocide against people of color in many parts of the world, are very legitimate and not racist.

Pete should be restored to the list.

Response to Eric and plea for anti-zionist unity

I don't know much about Chabbad. I saw that some zionists around here were asking rabbis to give Purim sermons demonizing Iran and President Ahmadinejad and that there was even an anti-Iran Purim rally organized by zionists outside the Iranian mission to the UN in NYC , and I was concerned. I didn't want to accept David Duke as a source for what Purim is about. I preferred to read the actual book of the Hebrew bible (in translation of course since I can't read Hebrew). I went to wikipedia on "book of esther" and i went to the link for the translation on a jewish site rather than a christian site. the link was Chabbad. If you want to read another translation instead, that is fine. How about I believe that the original Hebrew text does say that Esther foiled the plot against the Jews, and that the Jews killed 75,000 non-Jews and then started the Purim holiday to celebrate that. I haven't found a translation yet that doesn't include the killing of the 75,000 non-Jews, although there may be a translation out there that has excised this that I haven't found yet.

The Book of Esther is a story from 2500 years ago. And the killing of the 75,000 non-Jews may not be an important part of the Purim holiday to most religious Jews now. But it is troubling and offensive that organizations claiming to be "Jewish", and that do represent a lot of "Jews" around here, used the Purim holiday this year to demonize Iranians - modern day Persians - while the "US" and zionist occupation government in Palestine are threatening Iran militarily even with nuclear weapons. I think it is legitimate and necessary to bring up this issue and issues like this on the bostonanarchist list. It is disturbing that someone who posts with information or concerns about an issue like this is attacked by list members (or even kicked off the list) rather than a discussion of the issue ensuing.

I said exactly what my opinion of Mike is based on. I think that his demonization of the Iraqi Resistance as being unjust killers of America's working class and as being the problem in Iraq (rather than being a progressive response to a genocidal American occupation) was offensive & racist. I think that Mike's action of protesting against a former Iranian president - while the "US" and zionist entity were threatening war against Iran and while other anti-Khatami protesters there were openly calling for war - was offensive & racist. I think that Mike saying that there is something wrong with supporting Hizballah (as Mike was quoted in the Weekly Standard) is racist as Hizballah is a progressive grassroots organization working to free the Lebanese people from imperialist oppression. I think that Mike being active in a "Jewish" organization that is not explicitly anti-zionist and anti-imperialist and that works with hardcore rightwing zionist imperialist "Jewish" organizations is a racist association. It is not progressive to work under the banner of "Jewishness" for any cause unless you challenge zionism and zionist/US imperialism. And I think that Mike attacking Pete (not just this one time) (for posts criticizing hardcore rightwing zionist imperialist "Jewish" organizations and the associated political movement of zionist-imperialist self-identified "Jewishness") is racist against the Muslims, Arabs, Persians, Africans and others who Pete works to defend from zionist imperialism. There is evidence for all these things on which I base my opinion of Mike. His attacks against Pete were on this email list. I provided the link about him protesting against Khatami and about his statement about Hizballah and about the Harvard PJA. I can post emails he wrote about the Iraqi Resistance in Nov/Dec 2004 if there is doubt about this. I think I have been thorough in presenting the basis for my opinion. You all are free to agree or disagree. The reason I had to do this is because Mike posted a vicious attack against Pete, so I wanted people to know where Mike is coming from.

I think the parallel of American identity and Jewish identity that Eric raised is pertinent. People often post that America or the US is doing, has done, or is about to do some terrible thing. Nobody says these posts are racist because they don't specify that some Americans don't support this stuff. I am an "American", and even though I don't agree with the policies of the "US" government and other "US" institutions, and even though I even think that the whole "USA" project has been a racist, imperialist, genocidal project since its inception and that the "USA" should be shut down, I still benefit from American privilege that I am allowed to live here so far with food and electricity and water, etc., and without having my home bombed (I know that there are sub-populations of Americans who don't have the same privilieges as I - I am simplifying here). I would never attack somebody for expressing a concern about American actions. I have a responsibility to speak out against and to try to change the things that the US government and other US institutions do. Otherwise I would be tacitly supporting these bad things and would be part of the problem. Similarly people who identify as "Jews" benefit from Jewish privilege. For one thing they are allowed by the zionist occupation regime in Palestine to go settle in Palestine and have more rights there than indigenous Palestinian Arabs have and while millions of indigenous Palestinian Arabs live as refugees not allowed to return to Palestine. Another benefit of Jewish privilege for "Jews" in the "US" is access to the resources and aid of "Jewish" organizations here that have charitable and social programs benefitting "Jews" and do political advocacy for "Jewish" interests in the "US" as well as often advocating for zionist-imperialist interests abroad. These "Jewish" organizations are heavily funded by wealthy investors and business leaders who happen to identify as "Jewish" and who work to advance Zionist/US imperialist policies around the world (including neo-liberal trade & finance policies as well as wars) and who fund "Jewish" organizations in the US in order to try to keep zionism and zionist imperialism identified with "Jewishness" in order to maintain widespread "Jewish"-American support for zionism and imperialism. Because of the level of success that zionist-imperialist "Jews" have had in convincing the public (and large elements of the "Jewish-American" community itself) that "Jewish" and "Zionist" are identical, I think that anti-zionist anti-imperialist people here who identify as "Jews" have a responsibility to either only work with "Jewish" organizations that explicitly separate themselves from the network of zionist-imperialist "Jewish" organizations so as to present a clear alternative assertion that zionism and imperialism are not identical to "Jewish", or to dissociate themselves from "Jewish" organizations and only work with organizations that are not identified as "Jewish". Some people from various Jewish family backgrounds even reject Jewish identify entirely in order to dissociate themselves from Jewish privilege and from zionism.

It is especially counter-revolutionary to attack revolutionary activists who speak out against zionism and zionist-imperialism and the (self-identified) "Jewish" racist zionist-imperialist movement, and to attempt to pejoratively label these activists as "anti-semitic" or as racistly anti-Jewish. Look around. Many synagogues in the Boston area have "We Stand With Israel" banners out front. "Jewish" organizations including synagogues hold many zionist pro-"Israel" events including "Israeli Independence Day celebrations" which are celebrations of the violent colonial-imperialist theft of Palestine by zionists. At these celebrations the "Jewish"-zionist organizations even serve Arab food such as falafel and call it "Israeli" food. "Jewish" organizations hold imperialist propaganda events every week demonizing the government and people of Sudan - the largest country in Africa - falsely accusing the Sudanese of genocide, and calling for a UN military invasion force to go in and secure the oil to cut China off from another oil supply. "Jewish"-zionist organizations have libelously attacked the Islamic Society of Boston with lies about their funding in order to try to demonize Muslims and stop the construction of the ISB's mosque in Roxbury. "Jewish"-zionist organizations held rallies last summer in support of the zionist entity's brutal military attack on Lebanon. They had over 1000 people at their pro-war rally in Brookline. I could go on and on listing and describing offensive racist Islamophobic events that self-identified "Jewish" groups in the Boston area have organized.

If an anti-imperialist anti-zionist person sees all these offensive actions and events organized by self-identified "Jewish" groups and in expressing concern about what is going on conflates (or is not careful about not conflating) "Jewishness" and zionist-imperialism, the problem is not the anti-imperialist anti-zionist activist - the problem is the self-identified "Jewish" zionist-imperialist racist Islamophobic organizations that are spending millions of dollars spreading their propaganda and identifying it with "Jewishness". I don't see much self-identified "Jewish" opposition
to "zionist-imperialist" self-identified "Jewish" organizing in the Boston area. And the "Jewish" opposition that I do see mostly fails to address the key anti-zionist issue of the illegitimacy of the existence of a "Jewish"-supremacist colonial presence in Palestine. And the "Jewish" opposition that I do see mostly fails to dissociate itself from "zionist-imperialist" organizational networks like JCRC/CJP. Basically the only time I hear a clearly anti-zionist anti-imperialist "Jewish" voice in Boston is when Rabbi Dovid Weiss or someone else from the Neturei Karta drives up here to speak.

So I am asking everyone who is sincerely anti-zionist anti-imperialist - and I am including people who identify themselves as "Jews" and who are sincerely anti-zionist anti-imperialist - to please think about where the problem of zionism and imperialism really is. Please consider concentrating on working against zionist-imperialist insitutions, even and especially ones that identify themselves as "Jewish". Please consider stopping your attacks against people who are working against zionist-imperialism in Boston and internationally (Hizballah, the Iraqi Resistance, the Sudanese government, etc.). Please stop participating in the demonization of people who are being victimized or threatened by zionist imperialism in Iraq, Lebanon, Iran, Sudan, Palestine, Afghanistan, etc. Please speak out about the injustice of the existence of a "Jewish"-supremacist colonial presence in Palestine. Please stop working with racist hate groups like JCRC.

Chabbad is one of the most marginal looked-down on organizations in Juda ism
04 Mar 2007
The people in the United States government call themselves Americans, but nobody on an anarchist email list would argue that they speak for everyone in the Americas. Just because Zionists identify as Jews does not mean they speak for the Jewish people. Pete has used the words interchangably, which shows not only ridiculous ignorance but that he is purposely ignoring us when we have repeatedly pointed out the difference. The following statement is some of the most ridiculous bullshit I have ever read: "Shadowboxer, aka Mike GW, has stated offensive racist views against
Muslims, Arabs and Persians on many occasions and has been pushing for war against Iran." There is absolutely no evidence to back up this claim and it couldn't be farther from the truth. It is hilarious that David would link Chabbad and try to claim that their story is representative of Jews, when Chabbad is one of the most marginal looked-down on organizations in Juda ism.
Let people's words and actions speak for themselves. Absurd character assassination attempts against people who call out someone reposting neo-nazi propaganda will not shift the focus from Pete's language and behavior. Pete is notorious for equating Jews with Zionists even when he should know better, and there is absolutely no defense for reposting something from David Duke on this list. This kind of ridiculous propaganda is a disgrace to the anti-imperialist movement and the Palestinian liberation struggle and cannot be given any sort of platform- especially in an anarchist community.
World Leaders & Chabad Lubavitch - What's the Attraction?

Before you look at the photos below, I want you to consider something...
Think about the people who rule your country... with their thousand dollar suits, their chic stretch limousines, their 200 dollar luncheons - paid for by you, of course - their many lucrative contacts with moneyed-up corporate sponsors, as well as their ties to "big banks" and "special interest" groups of all kinds...

Think about YOUR untouchable leaders.

Now ask yourself honestly:

How many of these so-called "leaders" would actually take the time to meet with us, if we so desired?

How many of these "leaders" would not only set aside the time to meet with us, but actually invite us into their work environment, so that we may confide in them; so that we may express our heartfelt desires for the betterment of our people and our families?

"Support the (CIA's) Iranian Student Movement" ???
04 Mar 2007
I wasn't going to dignify your bullshit with a response, but what the hell, I won't stand for having my beliefs and my words twisted by your
sorry ass.

I hate to break it to you, but most of the activists on this list don't have to read your rants and screeds to "know where Mike is coming from," or know what I believe. Unlike you, I've been a dedicated activist in
the Boston anarchist community for almost four years.

As for you, many activists have spoken up against your slander of other activists and anarchists before. Your record of disruption,
provocation, and sectarian, COINTELPRO-like tactics in the Boston activist community
is well known. As is the hand you had in the subversion of the student/youth anti-war coalition in 2004-5 (when you weren't even a student or youth).

You can hide as much as you want behind claims that anyone who opposes the David Rolde Party Line is a zionist and an imperialist, and that you
and your tiny crew are the sole bearers of The Truth. But in an anti-authoritarian movement, I'm afraid that doesn't cut it.

I don't need to defend myself, or my Jewish identity, from you or your anti-Semitic friends. I don't need to follow your orders to "dissociate
myself from "Jewish" organizations and only work with organizations that are not identified as "Jewish"." I don't need to defend myself from
your statement that "I think that Mike being active in a "Jewish" a racist association. It is not progressive to work
under the banner of "Jewishness".

I don't "work under the banner of 'Jewishness.'" I work under the banner of anti-authoritarianism, anti-capitalism, and anti-racism, with an
identity that is Jewish. That's my people, fucker. A people that was oppressed, exiled, and murdered for thousands of years and was able to
resist your "Master Race." A people that shares a history with Muslim and
Arab peoples.

(Unlike your people. The fact that you pretend to speak for Arab and Muslim people, while having no connection to those communities, is
itself racist).

You know nothing about me. There is nothing in my history associated with zionism. My family has always been anti-zionist socialists and
bundists. I have been an anti-zionist and anti-imperialist all my activist life. I got arrested for doing direct action against the occupation when I was 14, and two other times after that. I went to Palestine in 2001 to do international solidarity work with the Palestinian struggle.

I worked for many years with Jews Against the Occupation and in solidarity with Anarchists Against the Wall. Yes, I also work with the Progressive Jewish Alliance at my school. I have moved it to band together with the Palestine Solidarity Committee, of which I've been a member for three years, and it is the only Jewish group on campus that actively opposes
and confronts "Students for Israel."

I don't even have to respond to your laughable assertions that I support war in Iran or oppose popular resistance, but for the record. I never
"demonized the Iraqi resistance" in 2004. I did write the following: "Iraqis have a right to collective self-defense, which they do like
anyone else...It's another thing completely to say we should actively support those intent on killing indiscriminately."

I was saying we need to support the Iraqi people's resistance directly, not the authoritarian organizations that claim to speak for them while blowing them up. Yes, I wrote this after a working-class kid I knew growing up was blown up in Iraq. That doesn't equate with me supporting the war.

As for the protest during Khatami's visit, we were responding to a call from the Arab student-led Alliance for Justice in the Middle East to
protest against the pro-war agitators, and also protest against repression of people's movements in Iran. For those who bothered to read my sign, it said: "Support the Iranian Student Movement: No War in Iran." I find it
funny that you quote the corporate Weekly Standard as if it's indisputable fact.

Funniest of all, and most revealing of your hypocrisy, is that all of your venom is motivated by your stated desire to defend the posting to
Boston activist lists of an article by your friend, David Duke. I'd like to hear you justify your support, as a so-called "anti-racist," for a KKK Grand Wizard, Nazi sympathizer, and founder of the National Association for the Advancement of White People.

As for the "Muslims, Arabs, Persians, Africans and others who [you say] Pete works to defend from zionist imperialism." Oppressed peoples don't need white people to "defend" them or "save" them. They are defending themselves just fine. And they definitely don't need people like you to use their people's struggles as a cover for racism and anti-Semitism.

FELLOW ANARCHISTS (not you, Mr. Rolde): We have no time for this crap. Iraq and Palestine are burning. Let's get back to the real work of
stopping this fucking war. And as we're doing that, let us be vigilant against racists, anti-Semites, and white supremacists in our midst.

Mike that article speaks for its self and was sent out by a significant local activist news source to hundreds of people including the president of Brandies wife. It made some interesting and timely points that lots of people are making.

Why do you have to throw a total poop fit about it?

Did you go to Palestine on a "birthright" style trip? Did you call it Palestine them?

If you are challenging Harvard students for Israel why are they listed right along side your group and the Hillel house as sponsors of the Rabin memorial?

How does your group swallow memorializing a minister of war who ordered his occupation troops to break poor peoples bones?

Did you throw a poop fit about that?

Did you spaz out when a group from your group attended a pro war rally in central park where speakers called for sending 15- 20, 000. Foreign troops in to Sudan to bolster the UN troops and US based mercenary groups like DynCorp that are already there and are now raping and killing the locals?

Did you scream "racist" over that?

Did you?

you know what i wonder? why David Rolde can't just post using his name. everyone knows it's him when he posts, so it's useless trying to hide it.

i was reading mein kampf the other day, and one thing that struck me was the similarity between what your buddy hitler said and what you always say. that there is no difference between zionism and jewishness. cool man. way to fucking quote mein kampf.

David, how does it feel when everyone, including the activist scene dislikes you immensely?

The Anarchist community loses credibility when we attack certain Activists.

Bullies on the A Block
By Fartin R. Mederman

I grew up in ethnically diverse America. Still, one day the Anarchist gang stopped David, Pete and me after a anti Zionist email, pushing us around. Our supposed insult was what they expected from a bunch of “Nazis." Unexpectedly, Kronsdad dropped us from the list, stomped toward the one peoples project muttering "I'm calling the antifascists." After some more shoves and unpleasant language, they took off the gloves.

I remembered this recently when reading the Dec. 22 front-page story in the Advocate of "Jewish activists" targeting Cambridge churches
because of space given or rented to people who question Israeli policies. These "activists" certainly have the right to disagree with anyone. There is, however, irony inherent in the belief that they are protected by free speech, yet the same protection is not available to others. The rationale usually given (as quoted in the Advocate's coverage) is that those using the facilities are "hotbeds
of anti-Semitism."

Let's be clear - there are some vicious islamaphobic fascists out there, and some do use anti-Israel and anti-Zionist rhetoric to cover it. But “the Jews” are not the Semites. Arabs are the Semites and attacking anti Zionists is real Anti Semitism.

The targeted activists, however, have warm relations with the anarchist community and even a history of support for anarchist demos and court battles. Nevertheless, the "Anti Racists" cannot abide anyone criticizing any Jewish Supremacism.

Since they cannot simply silence these voices (unless the are Khronstad , king of the Boston Anarchist list), they use the one illogical accusation: anti-Semitism. Since this is rightly a heinous accusation (The real Semites are being annihilated by Zionist US genocide), old friends are intimidated into doing anything to insulate themselves from it. Consequently, these Activists are frightened into second-guessing any connection with voices possibly unacceptable to Jewish supremacists such as the email in question.

A pernicious aspect of these tactics is that they target groups that challenge Zionism and Activists like Pete and David. Despite Davids's frequent recognition of Jewish anti racists and his wish to interact with it and to promote a truly anti racist strategy within the boston activist community, he has been slandered, his words taken out of context. In reality, voices like Mikes are the ultimate threat to those who claim there are no american "anti war activist," lest the lie that "the
" be exposed.

The contemptible strategy of "anarchists" like Mike has been to attack Pete and David and now our Iranian neighbors with labels like "racist, anti-Semite, Nazi scum."

I'm not so worried about the individual "anti authoritarians." Like Mike and the bullies on the Anarchist list, we need David’s to tell them that we won't be intimidated.

I'm more concerned by the Harvard Hillel House and The Jewish Community Relations Councils out there with immense resources to disseminate misinformation dressed as fact.

But most frightening is the realization that, as quoted in the Advocate, these bullies are supported by institutional agencies funded by fanatical Jewish Zionist billionaires.

If the Harvard Progressive Jewish Alliance, an agency with a well-known history of pushing racist Zionist pro war events, is intervening in conversations with our local allies on the side of our local short-sighted Jewish bullies, we are in trouble.
Rather than attacking Anti Zionists who have proven to be our allies, we should be working with them to stop the US Zionist attacks on Sudan, Iran and Palestine.

Only then will we have the credibility to address the threat of the real anti-Semites, Islamaphobic Fascists.

... that the Boston anarchist community lost any of the credibility that it had 3 years ago when it was going "shutdown" the Democratic National Convention. That worked really well didn't it. I can't wait to the see the anarchist community retake the commons in the May.

As far as Dave Rolde goes, he needs to move his nazi ass out of his mom's basement and begin to take showers on regular basis. Maybe Peter and him can join the aryan nations together and move out to like Idaho.
Just to be clear about usage
05 Mar 2007
The term "anti-semitism" was coined in the 19th century specifically to refer to anti-Jewish prejudice:

and has retained that meaning in common usage ever since. That usage trumps all the hair-splitting arguments about who or what is a "semite".

In fact, in Internet dialogue, these claims are diagnostic of a hatefreak who gets their worldview from neo-Nazi Web sites, in much the same way that a bloody bone end protruding from the flesh is diagnostic of a compound fracture.

So take 'em back to Stormfront and shove 'em.

Anyone who parrots David fucking Duke on the 'net has placed himself beyond the pale of anything resmbling respectable discourse and deserves to be booted from any mailing list he has thus used as a bathroom wall. It really is that simple.

i don't know what you're talking about fartin. the "warm relations" the anarchist community has with david rolde and pete lowney have never made themselves apparent to me. do not get me wrong, i am strongly anti-israel, but as a jewish anarchist, it really upsets me to see someone send out an email quoting David Duke, and then see them defend it. not only that but to see someone defend the government of iran, a repressive religious fundamentalist regime, as well as the government of sudan, who is currently commiting acts of genocide. racism is racism buddy, and genocide is genocide, whether it's commited against arabs or not.

again, don't get me wrong, i'm against israel, but i am also against nazis and fascists who happen to be arab or who wish desperately they were arab.
The Progressive Jewish Alliance Vs. The Progressive Community

The Harvard Hillel house is funded in part by multi billionaire oil, booze, and crime banking tycoons.

It acts as a safe house for propaganda groups and thought control operations to advance the zionists project and obsecure the global zionist dynasty that has made the genocidal colonization of Palestine possible.

(The Israel Project's Guide to Effective Pro-Israel Communications: Key Talking Points)

Harvard Progressive Jewish Alliance worships the terrorist warlord Rabin and works hand in hand with Hillel and the notorious Harvard Students for "Israel" to memorialize a war criminal and camouflage the true character of genocidal Zionists.

The Harvard Students for "Israel" president, Eric Trager got busted infiltrating activist groups and posing as a anti semite on activist groups email lists. Harvard Students of "Israel" goes completely unchallenged on campus as they host an endless parade of trespassing, trigger pulling, Arab children killers, torturers, protest gassers and home, land, and olive tree thieves.

HSI president Amy Zeller even had someone arrested and almost maced then prosecuted with trial for asking a American captain in the jewish armys psy-ops program, questions about refugees and massacres in Palestine during a OPEN DISCUSSION. HSI officers called and incited the police with false accusations of "ethnic and racial slurs".

HSI President Amy Zeller then went on to personally scream slurs at Norman Finklestien the entire time he was giving a speech that accurately addressed the questions of massacres and refugees in Palestine then defended her extremely hypocritical actions in The Harvard BloodStain.

Harvard Zionists just held a crisis summit with the isr-eli government to plan a surge of repression against the anti genocide liberation struggle in Palestine, its supporters in the Boston area and the rational cognitive abilities of everyone else.

(Students form Isr--l Caucus)

Some boston zionarachists with the OneChosenPeoplesProject have embeded themselfs in the activist community and go fly into a fury when its mentioned that jewish zionist are calling for world domination thru the massacre and enslavement of everyone else.

Ziionists Slander Lowney and Rolde

To Pete Lowney and David Rolde: Illegitimi Non Carborundum and keep up the good work.

To all you lemming-like self-styled anarchists: I don't see any evidence that Lowney is linked in any way to David Duke but even if he is any critique of Lowney should be built on more than simple guilt-by-association. Further, Duke's arguments should be critiqued on their merits, not on ad hominem attacks, which are the bailiwick of thugs and intellectual sloths.

The not very skeptical "Skeptic" writes: "The term 'anti-semitism' was coined in the 19th century specifically to refer to anti-Jewish prejudice." Hey "Skeptic" the Britannica article you cite says that anti-semitism "is a misnomer, since it implies a discrimination against all Semites." Why would you want to continue to use a "misnomer" when more descriptive and accurate terms such as "anti-Jewish" or "anti-Judaic" are available.

Shadowboxer Example of Jewish Radical Narcissism
07 Mar 2007
Shadowboxer, aka Mike Gould-Wartofsky was chided recently for his slipup in which he forwarded ADL/SPLC "rising trend" spook material to his friends. Wartofsky was made to feel as a child that he was destined to change the world. This is part of the narcissism of Jewish intellectuals in the college professorial system, who believe themselves to be experts on social justice. This has led Mike to believe that he can lift his black and spanish lesbian brothers up by the bootstraps. He is best represented by the Jaffroed son in the movie Car Wash.

David Duke's writing should be judged on merit? MERIT? this fucker was the Grand Wizard of the KKK! he travelled to iran, chilled with the fascist Ahmedinejad, and DENIED THE HOLOCAUST! how the hell are we supposed to judge him on merit?!

the other thing i find pathetic is how you, being Rolde, lowney and your crazy little friends write posts in support of yourselves but don't ever write under your names.

and you defend the fucking KKK!

A Jewish Revisionist's Visit to Auschwitz

"This argument has problems, though. For one thing, the supposed homicidal gas chambers at Majdanek (which in reality were non-homicidal delousing chambers) have abundant blue staining. So according to Piper's "Holocaust logic" gassing people in Auschwitz did not leave blue stains, but gassing people at Majdanek did. Talk about a Magic Kingdom !

As we spoke, I half expected to see Piper's nose grow as long as Pinocchio's!

The importance of Piper's revelations is obvious. The burden of proof has now shifted decisively to the Exterminationist side. For example, Piper's admission that the four holes in the ceiling of Crematory Building (Krema) I were put in after the war makes ludicrous the oft-repeated claim of Auschwitz tourists that "Now I've seen the gas chambers with my own two eyes." Now that the often-made claims are no longer valid, can the Exterminationists produce any evidence -- a photograph, document, plan, or order -- showing that the supposed gas chamber there was ever used to kill people as alleged? Most likely not, but what else is new? We've never been asked to accept the Holocaust story on anything but faith, and for me, that's not good enough.

On the issue of the Holocaust -- and perhaps uniquely on this issue --- we are told: "Close the books, there will be no more learning, no more discussion, no more questions. Not only will no questions be tolerated, but anyone who dares to ask such questions will be slandered and viciously attacked."

Now as someone who believes that part of being human is to learn something new everyday, I respond: "How dare you tell me there will be no more learning?" The establishment that maintains the Holocaust story on life support admits that there is no direct proof of homicidal gassings. No order, no document, no pictures, only "eyewitnesses."

And what of these eyewitnesses? The Holocaust lobby insists that this is convincing evidence. But what kind of evidence is this? In some European countries, a person who denies the gas chambers can be jailed, fined, or physically attacked. He might lose his job, his standing in the community, maybe even his life. Something similar has happened in Canada . In the United States , he might be attacked and villified. And if he says that he comes by his knowledge from first-hand experience -- in other words from helping to run the camps during the war years -- then he might easily find himself deported to Israel or eastern Europe, where he might be sentenced to death or at least stripped of his US citizenship and denied due process.

In other words, we only hear of eyewitnesses from one side because witnesses from the other side have been strong-armed into silence. This is governmental coercion of the worst kind, and on a worldwide scale no less. One kind of eyewitness is encouraged, the other is warned that his words might lead to deportation, imprisonment, loss of livelihood, property, and even life. Some great victory for the Holocaust lobby: The game has been fixed!

Let people speak! If only no one else, I demand this for my own sake. I want to know what happened during World War Two, and yet how can I if those who might have firsthand knowledge are told : "Speak only the official line, or suffer the consequences."

I insist on my human right to learn."
This thread speaks for itself, and what it says is ugly...
07 Mar 2007
I've been following this thread, scratching my head, and remembering a time in my life when I was smeared because an article I wrote and released without copyright was reposted by Nazis. The article was an abstract article on resistance. As an anarchist, it was anarchists that I had in mind when I wrote it. Nevertheless, libertarians, Nazis and others liked the article too and republished it, without my solicitation.

After Nazis published it, I got harassed by Zionists and denounced as an anti-semite, even though my article had nothing to do with Jews, Israel, race or anything related to those topics. My critics failed to mention that "Jews for Firearms" also published a copy of my article. It was that generic.

Now, looking at the above, I decided to go to Duke's website and see the article. The article says that is was authored by: "By Gilad Atzmon with preface commentary by Dr. David Duke". Gilad Atzmon is characterized as a Jew. Now, how do you know that the target of your hatred and denounciations didn't find the article somewhere else, published by Atzmon. Perhaps Duke found it too and republished it without Atzman's consent? How do you know whether he did or not?

If someone had quoted an article written by an Italian and prefaced by an anti-Chinese racist, do you think there would be a thread this long denouncing the person who quoted it. This has all the signs of either an organized attempt to defame someone or it shows how knee-jerk programmed we have all become to react in specific ways. I don't know they guy you hate. I've never met him. However, I do think this smells fishy. Think twice before calling someone a Nazi.
I agree with @ !
