Update on ISM/Gaza Flotilla co-founders

By Lee Kaplan

9 March 2013: Huwaida Arraf, wife of notorious ISM co-founder Adam Shapiro, is pregnant. Shapiro, who was banned from Israel for ten years, was caught trying to reenter Israel and faces deportation.  (Note update below).  Readers who have taken an interest in terrorism in the Middle East conflict are aware of the efforts made by members of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) to get their international volunteers to the “West Bank” and Gaza to incite violence and act as human shields to prevent anti-terror operations by the IDF.

The truth about Anna Baltzer: Defaming her grandmother’s legacy

By Lee Kaplan

23 February 2013: The individual known as Anna Baltzer, whose name remains questionable in terms of legal legitimacy, leads the US Campaign Against the Israeli Occupation and the Boycott and Divestment Movement (BDS) against Israel. Under that name, she has developed a sinecure traveling to churches and colleges worldwide regaling false tales of atrocities by Israel’s Jews against innocent Palestinians with slick presentations, somehow even grabbing a television appearance at Oxford University.

A case of “Catch me if you Can?”

Does Anna Baltzer legally exist?

By Lee Kaplan

9 February 2013: Catch Me If You Can refers to the 2002 movie directed by Steven Spielberg. It’s based on the true story of a man named Frank Abagnale. Well, that was his given name at birth. It was his actual name, except when he changed it to advance certain agendas. In the case of the movie, it was to advance various cons he was running, and he was extremely convincing and very good at what he did. Frank Abagnale, Jr. successfully used different identities to impersonate an airline pilot, doctor, and assistant attorney general for personal gain, cashing more than $2.5 million in fraudulent checks in 26 countries.

Anna Baltzer’s campaign of fabrication

Our universities, both in the U.S. and the UK, are playing host to this woman, thereby giving her the appearance of academic, and intellectual legitimacy when her goal is to persuade her audiences through lies…

By Lee Kaplan, senior analyst, communications director

31 January 2013: Anna Baltzer, of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, who I wrote about earlier here  as lying about her background by claiming she was a Jew who discovered that Zionism and Israel should be eliminated, is apparently still appearing in a debate at Oxford University in the UK today as originally scheduled, after having spoken yesterday at University of Sussex where  she promoted the boycotting of, and divesting from, Israel.

Exposing Anna Baltzer

Will the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation’s “Jewish” leader be allowed by Oxford University in the UK to perpetuate her fraud?

By Lee Kaplan, senior analyst, communications director

30 January 2013: Anna Baltzer — apparently neither a Fulbright Scholar, nor a descendant of Holocaust survivors, nor an alumna of the Birthright Program — appears to be just a fraud and a fabulist. So why is Oxford having her speak January 31st? Continue reading

The Neturei Karta: a dangerous “Fifth Column”

By Lee Kaplan, senior analyst, communications director

17 January 2013: They can be seen at almost any large anti-Israel demonstration in the United States or the UK. Dressed up as Orthodox Hassidic Jews, they march with the pro-Hamas crowds calling for the demise of Israel. Just like dated communist sympathizers in the Jewish Voice for Peace, in reality, they  serve as a convenient front group to fool  “useful idiots” that the Jewish people do not support Israel, but prefer the goals of the  Arabs and Muslim fundamentalists in the Middle East. Worse, seeming to validate one of the worst slurs on Jews, they take money do so. Although  their name is Neturei Karta, “Guardians of the City,” these are not “Watchers over Jerusalem” as the Bible mentions, but a Jewish fifth column. The NKs, as they are sometimes called, try to insinuate themselves at Jewish functions, where they call for the end of Israel, and refer to the Jewish homeland as an “abomination against God.”

Palestinian refugees from Syria: political fodder for their leaders

 Palestinian leaders show true intent: destroy Israel at the expense of their people

By Lee Kaplan, senior analyst, communications director

8 January 2013: The civil war in Syria has shown the true motives of the Palestinian leaders regarding their people. About 350,000 Palestinians seeking refuge from the killing in Syria, wanting to settle in Gaza or the West Bank, have been refused entry by both governments in the region.

Trading U.S. security for Palestinian state

By Lee Kaplan, senior analyst, communications director

5 January 2013:  If U.S. security analysts take a hard look at the so-called “peace movement” going on in the Middle East, it becomes clear that after 20 years of coddling Arab terrorists and overseas dictators the U.S. is heading for a fall here at home. The Iranian nuclear threat is real; Iran continues to build ICBM’s that can reach further against Europe and that will eventually reach here. Continue reading

California ISM leader deported from India

California native ISM leader Paul LaRudee deported from India where he was speaking to promote “worldwide jihad”

By Lee Kaplan, senior analyst, communications director

4 January 2013: As elections approach in Israel and violence continues on a daily basis in the West Bank, it is time the present Israeli government takes preventative action to avoid the propaganda bonanza the Arabs have been reaping in the region.
