The theme of the conference
was "End the Occupation!" Shapiro, who was
deported from Israel the month earlier, joined delegates from
Gush Shalom, B'tselem, the Israeli Committee against
House Demolitions and other professional
Israel-bashers. The two-day conference opened
with a statement of support from the U.N. chief men's
room attendant and banana-sucker, Secretary-General Kofi
Annan. He recalled his night with the Palestinian
leader, whom he got to know at the end of March when
members of Shapiro's group, and the group he and his
wife founded, the
International Solidarity Movement (ISM), entered the
Mukata to treat the wounded Arab terrorists, many of
whom had Jewish blood on their hands.
OF PEACE" IS SEEDS 0F DISASTER
is an organization that promises "peace" by
bringing Arabs and Jewish youngsters together. Its name
is "Seeds of Peace", a very neutral-sounding
name, but a group with a very real objective. It was at
this organization that Adam Shapiro was brainwashed into
supporting Arab and PLO terror. Ill-prepared,
impressionable and "defenseless" young Jews
hear a constant barrage of lies about "Israel, the Oppressor"
from well-indoctrinated Arab children attending these camps.
in Adam Shapiro's case, it didn't help much having
parents (Stuart and Doris) who long supported the PLO
and called Israel a "Nazi State while observing, "There was no one to document what the Nazis did to the Jews -- We are proud Adam is documenting what the Jews are doing to the poor
Palestinians." His parents claim they had to suddenly leave their Brooklyn apartment due to death
threats but not before they lovingly posed for an
interview with the New York Times. It's hard to feel
sympathy for them, though, when their son is associated with Hamas and Hezbollah tactics aimed at killing of Jews and Americans.
Adam proclaimed, "The Palestinian resistance must take on a variety
of characteristics - both violent and non-violent. But
more importantly it must develop a strategy involving
both aspects. No successful non-violent was able to
achieve what it did without a concurrent violent
Arab suicide-homicide bombers he declared,
are certain that if these men were killed in such [suicide-homicide
attacks] actions they
would be considered Shaheed Allah."

SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT (ISM)
Solidarity Movement [PSM]
Note: The ISM
is the overseas branch while the PSM
is the branch within the U.S.
for Much More Infomation on ISM/PSM -
ISM was co-founded in December 2000 by
Adam Shapiro, his then Arab-American girlfriend,
Huwaida Arraf [now his wife] and two more Arabs, Ghassan Andoni and George Rishmawi.
ISM is often referred to in the media as a "peace movement."
Yet there is a flip side to the portrait the ISM presents of itself. In practice, it is nothing less than a revolutionary movement fighting in support of a violent struggle. Indeed, it defines itself as anything but neutral. In the opening paragraph on its own
web site, ISM says it supports the Palestinian "armed
struggle." It also says it uses nonviolent means to support that struggle. But as in any paramilitary operation, there are combat units and support units. In the ongoing fighting between Palestinian terrorists and Israel's army, the ISM chooses to play the role of a support unit for the Palestinians.
ISM spokesman, Raphael Cohen [left photo] addressed ISM's
definition of the "occupation" as "The Zionist presence in Palestine" that is, in all of the country including Israel within its
pre-1967 borders. Cohen went on to say that the ISM view of peace would be a "one-state solution," or no Israel at all.
Huwaida Arraf herself confirmed that ISM supports the Palestinian "right of return,"
a flooding of Arabs into Israel which is tantamount to calling for the end of the Jewish state.
Solidarity Movement conference (PSM) functions as the
student branch of the International Solidarity Movement
(ISM), a Palestinian-led, direct action organization that
trains European and American youths to partake in civil
disobedience and other agitational activities in Israel.
Although the ISM insistently bills itself as a non-violent
organization, two of the organization's co-founders, Huwaida
Arraf and Adam Shapiro, have explicated an overall strategy
that envisions the ISM functioning in close cooperation with
Palestinian terrorist organizations. According to Arraf and
Shapiro, the Palestinian resistance must take on a variety
of characteristics, both nonviolent and violent. But most
importantly it must develop a strategy involving both
aspects. No other successful nonviolent movement was able to
achieve what it did without a concurrent violent movement.
Thus, the ISM was specifically created to function as an
auxiliary, partner, and enabler of a violent anti-Israeli
2006 interview of Lee Kaplan on the Bill O'Reilly Show
in which he describes the ISM/PSM activities.
ANOTHER AMERICAN TALIBAN
Critics have compared Shapiro to American Taliban terrorist, John Walker
Like Lindh, Shapiro has a strong affinity with extremists in Afghanistan, asserting that the Taliban was
"unfairly displaced." It's no coincidence that
in 2002 the
Network" picked Shapiro as its "Guerrilla of the Week."
Hate-Filled Anti-Semite "Peace Chick," and Corrie
burning a mock American flag at pro-Hamas
Another famous ISMer was non-Jew (but just as nuts!) Rachel Corrie. She was the
misguided do-gooder from America's Left Coast who played
chicken with an IDF Caterpillar bulldozer. Not surprisingly, she
lost... BIG TIME! Rachel
Corrie was a clueless campus radical who committed suicide
while trying to prevent Israeli bulldozers from destroying a
smuggling tunnel used by the Palestinians in Gaza to smuggle
in explosives, weapons, and missiles. Witnesses on the ground said her
last words were, "I went to Gaza and all I got was this
lousy flat T-shirt!"
