An Agent For The Right-Wing:

Recently, Becky Johnson and Bill Levinson teamed up together to attack the Berkeley homeless news paper known as Street Spirit.

Becky Johnson, A Spy In Our Midst:
The claims by others that Becky Johnson is an "agent or spy" reporting on others in the Santa Cruz area because they do not support the occupation of the Palestinian People, does have some truth to it. See posting below...

===== (5) BASHING IN SANTA CRUZ =====

[14 January 2003]

http://www.honestreporting.com/articles/45884734/critiques/Readers_Roundup.asp

When it comes to Palestinians, some people in Santa Cruz, California, can't bend over far enough to defend them. On January 5, Free Radio Santa Cruz 96.3FM broadcast an interview with Alison Weir and Adam Shapiro. Weir is the founder of If Americans Knew, an anti-Israel group, and Shapiro is an American Jew who gained notoriety last spring by sneaking into Arafat's Ramallah compound for breakfast -- just a few weeks before Shapiro married his Palestinian girlfriend.

Astonishingly, the Santa Cruz broadcast happened 7 hours after the horrific double-suicide bombing in Tel Aviv. Neither of the guests mentioned the massacre, though they spent much of their time bashing Israel. "When people say Israel has a right to exist, it means Israel has a right to discriminate," Weir declared.

The show's host, George Cadman, asked, "Well, isn't Israel justified in having all these military arms? Aren't they surrounded by Arab nations who are hostile to them?"

Weir's answer: "They would not need such a strong military if they gave human rights to everyone." She then explained that Arab countries have no desire to attack Israel, and that with one exception, Israel attacked first in the wars of 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973.

Weir says that in Israel "There is an enormous apartheid system." Yet she doesn't explain that Israel has an 18 percent Arab population who enjoy religious freedoms and full citizenship rights -- as well as 12 members of Knesset.

Just like apartheid? Really.

Becky Johnson Defends The Murder Of A Child:

[Becky Johnson Defends Horrific Killing Of 13 Year Old By IDF]

http://backspin.typepad.com/backspin/2005/01/guardians_of_br.html

From Becky Johnson:
[Part 1]
Regarding the death of 13 year old Iman al-Hams.
She was hardly "walking to school" when she has shot and killed.

She left her home and veered off course a distance of 2 and a half times the distance from her home to her school.

Her destination was the Girit outpost where IDF soldiers were stationed. This area was clearly marked off-limits to civilians and considered a war zone.

The IDF did not see her as soon as they might have. IDF policy in this case, would be to fire warning shots, and if that didn't work, to fire at the intruder, trying to inflict a non-lethal injury. Soldiers are instructed to aim at an arm or leg at a distance of about 300 meters.

By the time they saw her, they had no time to fire warning shots. She was walking directly at them, as close as 30 yds. speaking angrily at them in Arabic (which they didn't understand) and she threw her backpack at them.

She was shot then. There WAS discussion of how old she was. The soldiers were sickened at the idea of shooting a child, both before and after the shooting. One of the soldiers, perhaps to emphasize the point that even a child can pose a risk (as a suicide bomber) fired at her already lifeless body.

Investigators later were unable to determine which shot killed her.

I think its clear from her behavior that she was put up to this, recruited as a child shehada. The cynical adults who undoubtedly recruited her KNEW she was unarmed, and they could make PR hay off her death. THEY are the ones responsible for her death. The IDF had little choice.

The only way it could have gone better for the IDF, is if they had seen her soon enough to wound her from a safe distance.

It is NOT policy for IDF soldiers to kill civilians or children. IDF soldiers on patrol are given a set number of bullets and these are counted when they return. They must account for every bullet they fire.

If an IDF soldier shoots indiscriminately into a window, into a crowd, into a school, or at children walking to school, then how come only 2.8% of the dead are female? Wouldn't indiscriminate fire reign down more evenly on women as well as men?

[Becky Johnson Defends Horrific Killing Of 13 Year Old By IDF]
From Becky Johnson:
[Part 2]
"As to discussion of her age, Iman was noticeably small for her age and any thought that she could pose a risk was tenuous at the least."

BECKY: I too have my doubts about the IDF report. Parts of it do not jive. If they had seen her at 300 meters, and she continued to approach their guardtower, why didn't they wound her per IDF policy?

The explanation, deduced from the audio tape, the investigation, and media reports, appears to be (and this is my idea alone) that she was much much closer than 300 meters when she was first noticed.

Wasn't her body found about 30 meters from the guardpost? And contrary to your claim that she was too small to pose a risk, her backpack could easily have contained explosives. Her actions (yelling angrily and throwing her backpack at them ---described by the Leftist spin-meisters as "dropping her backpack") were also suspicous. The IDF soldiers did not wound her, but killed her in a hail of bullets.

On the tape the IDF commander shouts that he doesn't care if she was three years old---meaning, that if any civilian purposely veers out of their way, approaches a closed military zone (meaning no civilians were allowed there) with a backpack, yelling angrily and approaching the very place where the soldiers were quartered, should be shot. Also on the tape is horrified discussion of her perceived age "she looks like she's 10 years old!"

The IDF commander was cleared because Iman al-Hams behavior clearly presented a possible deadly threat to which they could reasonably have used deadly force to protect themselves from.

Her backpack contained no explosives, but the IDF soldiers could not have been expected to know that at the time.

So who is at fault? I think the blame clearly lies with those unknown parties who recruited her to be a shehada.

Response to "spy" accusation

by Bill Levinson Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 7:22 AM
kitchener@omdurman.org

Unlike anonymous cowards who sign their posts "Research Team" when attacking other people's reputations, I have no problem with signing my real name to my postings. Now I will correct the slur from the anonymous "research team."

(1) "Recently, Becky Johnson and Bill Levinson teamed up together to attack the Berkeley homeless news paper known as Street Spirit."

The truth is that I considered the American Friends Service Committee, aka the American Friends of Saddam Committee, an enemy organization long before I ever heard of Beckly Johnson or Street Spirit. (Details appear at http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=651.)

When I did hear of Street Spirit, I was quite frankly inclined to leave it alone on the assumption that, in its focus on working with the homeless, it did not share AFSC's implicit support for terrorists (noting that its efforts to boycott Israel support Hamas, a Foreign Terrorist Organization as defined by the U.S. State Department) and efforts to undermine the Armed Forces of the United States.

Had Street Spirit lived up to the statement, "But Street Spirit really only focuses on addressing the issues of homelessness, poverty, and economic justice," I wouldn't have paid it any more attention. However, Joseph Anderson chose to brag about making Ms. Johnson "toast" at Street Spirit, thus showing that the organization mistreated her because of her opposition to terroristic violence in the Middle East. This, in my book, places Street Spirit squarely in the enemy camp along with AFSC itself. Hence my recommendation for people to redirect their donations from Street Spirit to the Salvation Army if they want to help homeless people.

The fact that Street Spirit works with the homeless does not exempt it from treatment as an enemy for discriminating against someone for refusing to support a terrorist government (Palestinian Authority). Hitler's kindness to animals and German children did not excuse his other activities and I see no reason to let Street Spirit off.

(2) "When it comes to Palestinians, some people in Santa Cruz, California, can't bend over far enough to defend them. On January 5, Free Radio Santa Cruz 96.3FM broadcast an interview with Alison Weir and Adam Shapiro. Weir is the founder of If Americans Knew, an anti-Israel group, and Shapiro is an American Jew who gained notoriety last spring by sneaking into Arafat's Ramallah compound for breakfast -- just a few weeks before Shapiro married his Palestinian girlfriend."

Adam Shapiro is on record as advocating terroristic violence, as is his Palestinian girlfriend Huwaida Arraf. Arraf, in fact, says openly that her organization, the International Solidarity Movement, has worked with foreign terrorist organizations as defined by the U.S. State Department. Alison Weir's work was recently featured with glowing praise at http://www.davidduke.org. That's as in "David DuKKKe of the KKKu KKKlux KKKlan."

It's quite amazing to see someone on Indymedia, a supposedly-liberal and pro-civil-rights publication, joining the sheet-and-hood gang in defending Alison Weir and then calling David Horowitz, Lee Kaplan, and myself "right-wing!"

(3) Re: the defamatory statement that Becky Johnson defends the "murder" of a 13 year-old child.

"By the time they saw her, they had no time to fire warning shots. She was walking directly at them, as close as 30 yds. speaking angrily at them in Arabic (which they didn't understand) and she threw her backpack at them."

If I had been an Israeli on guard duty and a Palestinian of any age came within 30 yards of me, yelling angrily in Arabic, and carrying a backpack that could easily contain 20 or 30 pounds of C4 or Semtex surrounded by poisoned nails or ball bearings, I'd have pulled the trigger too.

Sentries, especially in war zones, are given orders and not recommendations or advice. The usual order when guarding a post is that anything who will not obey your order to halt and be recognized is to be shot. (Cattle that got too close to American nuclear facilities during the 1940s and 1950s often fell victim to "Halt or I'll shoot!" because "moooo" was not among the acceptable responses.)

One of Israel's greatest heroes, American-born Mickey Marcus (who may well have saved Israel during the 1948 war) fell victim to "Halt or I'll shoot." An Israeli sentry ordered him to halt and he either didn't understand the challenge or he gave the wrong reply, whereupon the sentry killed him. That is how military security works, especially during wartime when any shadowy figure may be a lethal threat.

Having said that, it is certainly unfortunate that a 13 year-old girl was killed but it is in fact libelous to accuse Israel of "murdering" her. If anyone is to blame for her death, it is the Palestinian terrorists who have made shoot-to-kill security zones necessary.

As for San Francisco Bay Area Indymedia (Indybay.org) where Mr. Anderson's attacks on Becky Johnson originally appeared--- I have proven that Indybay.org's support for human rights, particularly the human rights of women, gay people, and religious minorities, ends where the militant "Islamic" world begins. This proof has been posted at IsraPundit and elsewhere.

In conclusion, here is my personal message to the so-called "reseach committee" that posted this diatribe:

Scorn and defiance; slight regard, contempt,
And any thing that may not misbecome
The mighty sender, doth he prize you at.

Right-Wing Pigs In Our Midst!

by Spectator Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 10:28 AM

Right-Wing Pigs In Our Midst!

Becky Johnson took the bait!

This was actually a test.

This test was created to see who would take the bait!

Bill Levinson of Israpundit took the bait after being contacted by Becky Johnson.

Can you believe it?

How dumb can they be?

In the whole world, only Becky Johnson was given a heads up about this link and the above message.

Who replies to this link?

Naturally, it was Bill Levinson, a co-conspirator of Becky Johnson!

These dummies feel into the trap!

For certain:

Once again, we see that Becky Johnson and Bill Levinson of Israpundit are attached at the hip, and wherever Becky goes, Bill Levinson is near!!

It was, Becky Johnson who tipped off Bill Levinson about this link on LA Indy Media, and Bill showed up in her defense!

It was Becky Johnson who brought in Bill Levinson to make the vicious attack on the homeless in Berkeley lately, by attacking Street Spirit!

An attack on Street Spirit, is an attack on the homeless!

A vicious brutal attack on the same beautiful paper that had so graciously allowed Becky Johnson to be a participant of, for so many years!

As much as Bill Levinson may try to defend Becky Johnson, "the SO-CALLED homeless advocate," it was Becky Johnson that collaborated with Bill Levinson in the recent attack on America's finest homeless news paper in Berkeley, called Street Spirit!

Once again, an attack on Street Spirit is an attack on the homeless!

Becky Johnson's claim to be an advocate for the homeless ended the moment she attacked the homeless, by attacking Street Spirit!

The fact still remains that these right-wing PIGS are still in our midst, spying on and attacking the progressive movement, when ever possible.

Considering her track record with Dafka/Israpundit/HonestReporting and other right-wing connections, it was only a matter of time before Becky Johnson would turn against the homeless people that she claims to be an advocate for.

It was only a matter of time before Becky Johnson's activities in Santa Cruz, would funally get the attention of people in the Bay Area!

Beware PEOPLE!

Where right-winger Becky Johnson travels, along with her comes Bill Levinson of Israpundit, Lee Kaplan of Dafka, the London spy group known as Honest Reporting, including David Horowitz and the whole machinery of the fascist state that attacks any one that fails to publicly support the brutal occupation of the Palestinian People!

If your not in lock step with the efforts of Becky Johnson to defend the grisly MURDERS of Palestinian Children, you just might be attacked and called anti-semitic by her gang of right-wing cut throats!

The way that Becky Johnson publicly defends and supports the BRUTAL MURDER of a 13 year old child, is so out of touch with the Peace Movement, that one can only wonder what happened to BECKY's BRAIN?

It is TRUE.

We have a SPY IN OUR MIDST!

Really? Take a look at today's front page; anyone could have seen this article.

http://la.indymedia.org/news/
Becky Johnson of Santa Cruz: A Spy in Our Midst! Research Team: 2006-04-09 1:28 AM
Local Santa Cruz So-Called Homeless Advocate, Is Actually A Right-Wing Spy And Defender Of A Child's Murder!

I am very familiar with the intelligence technique known as a "canary trap," in which you give specific people unique pieces of information. If one of those pieces later appears in public, you know who is spying on you because you entrusted it to only one person. Posting an article in plain view where anyone can see it is not a canary trap but your admission that you tried to set one is very interesting. I am going to follow up on that and someone is likely to be discredited very quickly.

"It was Becky Johnson who brought in Bill Levinson to make the vicious attack on the homeless in Berkeley lately, by attacking Street Spirit! An attack on Street Spirit, is an attack on the homeless!"

An attack on Street Spirit, which has proven its bigotry by mistreating an advocate for the homeless (while being part of an organization that is disloyal to the United States), is no more an attack on the homeless than attacking Hitler was an attack on animals and German children (noting that Hitler was kind to both of them). As for the homeless, their needs can be served by a DECENT and HONORABLE organizations like the Salvation Army and there is no need for the AFSC's terrorist-lovers.

"Becky Johnson's claim to be an advocate for the homeless ended the moment she attacked the homeless, by attacking Street Spirit!"

You are of course confusing cause and effect, because Street Spirit threw the first punch in this fight by mistreating Becky Johnson while other terrorist-lovers posted garbage like "Inside Becky's Brain." This is not at all surprising because your kind also calls Israel an "aggressor" for defending itself from numerically-superior terrorists in 1948, while saying that the terrorists are "victims."

Now you may admire cowardly terrorists who gang up on a peaceful country, just as you like to gang up on people like Becky Johnson. Unfortunately for your friends at Street Spirit, though, I am the kind of man who doesn't like it when any bully hits an innocent woman-- literally or figuratively.

If you think my dislike of Street Spirit is somehow irrelevant, take a look at what happened (through legal, nonviolent, and socially-acceptable methods) to the Million Mom March back in 2000. I didn't like them or their agenda either.

"Where right-winger Becky Johnson travels, along with her comes Bill Levinson of Israpundit, Lee Kaplan of Dafka, the London spy group known as Honest Reporting, including David Horowitz and the whole machinery of the fascist state that attacks any one that supports brutal Palestinian oppression of Palestinian Christians, women, and gay people, along with terroristic violence against Israeli women and children." I hope this correction to your statement is helpful.

"Honest Reporting (HR) Has Been Created For Snitches To Report On The Activities Of Any One That Publicly Does Not Support The Occupation Of The Palestinian People---"

BECKY: Honest Reporting was created to keep reporting...Honest! And they do. I am very happy to be associated with them. They have followed up on two issues I have brought to their attention.

the first was mentioned above when George Cadman hosted a radio show with guests, Adam Shapiro and Alison Weir.

Of course I did the opposite of spy on them. I openly wrote and published my criticism of the kinds of misinformation George's guests brought to her show.

And the second was to expose that Scott Kennedy of santa Cruz Resouce Center for Nonviolence was promoting a fake victim of Jewish violence.

the thing about Honest Reporting is that they have a whole crew of attorneys who fact-check everything--so they don't report anything unless its solid and properly sourced.
No one is saying what they are reporting is false, are they?

QUESTION FOR EVERYONE:
If I were a spy, why would I publish so many articles with my opinions on the Israel-Palestinian conflict under my own name? Aren't spys supposed to conceal their identity?

ABOUT IMAN AL HAMS DEATH:
Please look at the aerial map I have posted. It shows the relative positions of Iman's home, her school, and the Girit outpost where she was shot to death. Then try to reconcile this with accounts that say she was shot while taking a short cut to school.

BECKY: My such language! You certainly take yourselves quite seriously. Iman al-Hams death was tragic. But it was not murder. You throw that word around like you actually know something. The investigation cleared the officers of wrong-doing. the map I have posted clearly shows that she was way way way far away from her school and presumably up to no good. But thank you for researching so many of my links. I'm sure readers will be quite surprised to find out the kind of fools they have been played for by people like "Spectator".

"The way that Becky Johnson publicly defends and supports the BRUTAL MURDER of a 13 year old child, is so out of touch with the Peace Movement, that one can only wonder what happened to BECKY's BRAIN?"

BECKY: I believe that violence is only justified in cases of self-defense and the defense of others. Some believe that violence is justified (even mass murder of innocent civilians and suicide) if the party being attacked is more heavily armed generally.

Those are the kinds of peace advocates I want nothing to do with.

The American Friend Service Committee is working with several Jewish organizations on the Darfur issue. I wonder how Terry Messman would feel if he was removed from the coalition because of the attacks on Becky Johnson.

Oh, thats right! We are the good guys. We don't resort to intimidation, threats or blackmail.

Children trained as combatants

Children trained as ...
boys_throwing_rocks_at_apc_may_25_o3_balata.jpg, image/jpeg, 425x266

REPLY TO KEN: It is a very sad and disturbing phenomenon when adults recruit children as combatants. However this is a Palestinian phenomenon, not an Israeli one.

If you look at the death toll among Palestinian youth, you find a disproportional representation among boys aged 13 to 17. The reason so many boys are being killed, is that they are engaging in violent acts. In James Longley's movie "Gaza Strip" his 13 yr old protagonist reports that he and his friends "go every day" down to the IDF outpost "and throw rocks at them." He also reports that he and his friends steal oranges, copper, have vandalized a Jewish fence, and burnt tires. Itamar Marcus has documented numerous instances where the Palestinian media encourage children to become suicide bombers or shehadas.

If you really care about children in harm's way, then you should direct some of your outrage against those who recruit children to carry bombs, shoot rifles, and become suicide bombers themselves. Its not the Israelis who are doing this.

"And you say her backpack could have contained a bomb?

Hey Ken, have you ever flown on a commercial airplane recently? If you had a backpack or carry-on luggage, didn't you have to let the TSA people look at it in their X-ray machine? Did you see anyone being exempted from the security procedures because they were teenagers or even pre-teen children?

Yes, a backpack, even on a Palestinian teenager, could contain a bomb. Palestinian teenagers have been suicide bombers in the past. Did you know that Palestinian "science" has come up with the idea of surrounding the explosives with nails that have been dipped in rat poison?

The Palestinian was within thirty meters of the Israeli when he shot her. Now, for reference,

http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/infantry/grenade/hand.html
M61 hand grenade
Filler: 5.5 oz (156 gm) of Composition B HE
Casualty radius: 50 ft (15 m)
Kill radius: 16 ft (5 m)

What we have here is a fragmentation grenade with 5.5 ounces of explosives that can wound and maim people at 15 meters, half the distance in question. An explosive weapon's blast radius is proportional to the cube root of its size so multiply this by eight to bring the effective radius to 30 meters. This requires 44 ounces, or a little less than three pounds, of high explosives surrounded by nails or ball bearings. I think a terrorist could easily fit three pounds of high explosives in a backpack, if not more, so the soldier was obviously in "reasonable fear" for his safety when he fired.

Remember that the Palestinians and not the Israelis have created an environment in which any armed Israeli who sees a Palestinian with a backpack or in a bulky garment has to make a split-second "him or me" choice. The Palestinians are 100 PERCENT at fault for this teenager's death.

Now here is some information on Adam Shapiro. Perhaps Street Spirit thinks Adam Shapiro is a fine upstanding citizen and that Becky is a horrible person for exposing him. I wonder how the following fits in with Indymedia's views on nonviolence:

(3) Two of the ISM's leaders, Adam Shapiro and Huwaida Arraf, defended the use of violence against Israelis in a January 2002 article in the Palestine Chronicle:

http://palestinechronicle.com/article.php?story=20020129050221695
"In actuality, nonviolence is not enough. Rather, what is needed is nonviolent direct action against the occupation." "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. In India militants attacked British outposts and interests while Gandhi conducted his campaign, while the Black Panther Movement and its earlier incarnations existed side-by-side with the Civil Rights Movement in the United States."

http://home.comcast.net/~jat.action/ISM_essay_ref12.htm
"Nevertheless, he [Shapiro] justifies the Palestinian armed resistance against Israel as long as it is targeting Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Otherwise, he is not in favor of suicide bombings." Settlers are civilians so he is advocating the suicide bombing of civilians. Furthermore, even soldiers are legitimate targets only for other soldiers and partisans who carry their weapons openly and wear uniforms or badges "distinguishable at a distance."

So Adam Shapiro openly advocates violent war crimes, namely murdering civilians. If you are against Becky Johnson on this one, you are for murdering civilians and you are no better than those who danced on 9/11 to celebrate the murder of 3000 innocent people. Come on, "Research Committee," tell us where you really stand on this, or else crawl back into your hole and don't forget to pull the rock over its entrance when you do.

Nail bombs: facts

by Bill Levinson Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 2:33 PM

by Ken Sunday, Apr. 09, 2006 at 5:18 PM

"Now we hear about the bombs this child could have made or could have carried. The only thing dipped in rat poison are the constant excuses you Zionists come up with."

Ken, you had better go back to the sandbox and play with the children because I am WAY out of your league. Here are my cards; read 'em and weep.

First, the rat poison:

http://www.factsofisrael.com/blog/archives/000166.html citing http://www.msnbc.com/news/771106.asp
"Rivkind regularly encounters injuries virtually unseen before: horrific wounds to the head, chest, even rectum, caused by nails, screws and ball bearings flying at high velocity. One suicide bomber sprinkled rat poison among his nuts and bolts, which acts as an often-fatal anticoagulant. “This 14-year-old girl was bleeding uncontrollably from every one of her puncture wounds,” Rivkind says. The doctor managed to stop the bleeding by using a coagulant, still unapproved by the American Food and Drug Administration, which he has since used to treat several other bomb-blast victims."

http://www.washingtoninstitute.org/templateC05.php?CID=2382
"Hamas has long sought to increase the lethality of its attacks by lacing shrapnel attached to its suicide bombs with chemicals. Israel’s Health Ministry revealed that nails and bolts packed into explosives detonated by a Hamas suicide bomber in a December 2001 attack at the Ben-Yehuda pedestrian mall in Jerusalem were soaked in rat poison."

Now, for whether a 13-year-old is a threat:
http://www.waronline.org/en/terror/suicide.htm

"the youngest suicide bomber arrested by Israeli security services is just 13 years old, the youngest who blew up was 16. Also, palestinian militants often use small children to ferry weapons and explosives, for example in Jenin a 6 year old boy stopped by IDF soldiers had several grenades, AK magazines and other ammunition in his backpack."

How would YOU like to be on the receiving end of this stuff after a suicide bomber detonates him/herself?
http://www.waronline.org/terror/suicide/pellets-2.jpg

Here is an X-ray of a (deceased) teenage Israeli girl who was on the receiving end of one of these Palestinian gift packages.
http://www.waronline.org/terror/suicide/rengen.jpg

Now are you going to continue to argue that the IDF sentry should not have pulled the trigger?

I am with Becky

by Dr B Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 3:22 PM

I find the hypocritical, ignorant and often extremely anti-semitic attacks against Israel and the vituperatives against the Jewish state in the Middle East repugnant. True leftist would support the only liberal, emancipatory state in the region - ask any Arab homosexual, woman, communist, or gov't opposition. Instead, these 'leftists' laud murderers whose goal it is to wipe out the Jewish people. It is so disgusting. MLK would not have recognized it, neither does any other decent leftist (of which I am one).

Becky, you are not alone. And for her detractors: Becky Johnson has probably done more for social justice - true social justice for homeless people - than you will do in two lifetimes. Character defamation of an honest person is a serious moral offense - shame on such self-declared 'activists'

You still can. All you need to do is join the ISM. You too can become a suicide bomber. The ISM have expressed a willingness to sacrifice their foreign volunteers for the greater good- just think - soon your very own pretty little face can be gracing recruitment brochures and pamphlets. Maybe they'll make a play about you, too. I'd personally be happy to see you go. Take JA with you, also. He needs some purpose in his life.

It is 'israel' which is a construct that was brought into existence during the late 40's, not Palestine. The occupation began with wanton slaughter of non combatants where entire villages were eliminated.
And now the ISM is a terrorist org? I could have guessed.

And resistance to genocide is an unpleasant fact of life, even if you are the one with all the tanks missiles and gunships. I feel little sympathy for poor 'israel' with all their nukes, weapons and US aid.
I've noticed that Zionists always accuse others of their own crimes, I guess to avoid discussing their own glaring crimes against humanity.
Only the US has had more General Counsel resolutions held against it for murder and terror. But 'israel' comes in second.

Fascist Dogs & Their Threats!

by Not Surprised Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 4:53 PM

Fascist Dogs & Their Dire Threats!

The rumors of Becky Johnson being a snitch against others in the Santa Cruz area has been floating around for a long time.

This all just adds more detail, so that everyone in Santa Cruz can see how the activities of these extreme right-wingers, have been infiltrating our local activities.

No matter what side your on, defending the brutal murder of a child by Israeli War Criminals, is way beyond the norm and only a very sick mind would even try.

As for the ongoing threats of Bill Levinson et al, could one expect less?

The thugs at Israpundit, Dafka and (puke) Honest Reporting, operate by threatening EVERYONE that disagrees with their fascist police state philosphy

It's a big world Bill, and SMALL guys like you are a dime a dozen!

If your going to pick on somebody, feel free to join the ARMY! The Iraqi's would probably love to eat you for lunch!

Theres no doubt that Becky Johnson has been SPYING on the community, and as usual Bill Levinson wants everyone to believe that he is just another thug.

OK, Ken, you advocate the murder of civilians. Please excuse Israel if they kill your side (the terrorists) back, along with Palestinians who have the misfortune to look like terrorists.

You have also said that Israel does not have a right to exist, that it is an "illegal construct." Neither "Palestine" nor Israel existed prior to 1947 but the UN divided the land between the two groups. The Israelis acception their portion peacefully and the Arabs attempted to drive them into the sea so they could have it all. What did you expect to happen?

As for civilians being murdered in 1948, you are absolutely right. 13 April 1948: Palestinians massacre doctors and nurses at Mt. Scopus

(Source http://www.aish.com/literacy/jewishhistory/Crash_Course_in_Jewish_History_Part_65_-_The_State_of_Israel.asp) One of the worst incidents occurred on April 13, 1948. A convoy of 70 doctors and nurses making their way to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus was ambushed by Arabs. This happened 200 yards of a British police station. After a seven-hour shoot-out, during which the British did nothing, all the doctors and nurses were killed. Afterwards, the Arabs mutilated their bodies.

Note that it takes 16 years of education to make a nurse, and 20 (plus internship and residency) to make a doctor who can help thousands of suffering people during their careers. It takes but a second for a Palestinian sand Nazi to kill such a product of a lifetime of training and dedication.

Anyway, Ken, you have shown us exactly what you are. I warned you that you were way out of your league. Anyone else want to try to stand up to me here? I thought not.

Grrrrrr! (from an infidel, not a fascist, dog)

by Bill Levinson Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 5:10 PM

"As for the ongoing threats of Bill Levinson et al, could one expect less? ...It's a big world Bill, and SMALL guys like you are a dime a dozen! "

Yes, I'm a small guy in terms of personnel-hours and financial resources available for political activities. You should therefore find it very unsettling that I took out (by legal and nonviolent methods) an organization more than a thousand times my size in terms of personnel-hours and money, and that was backed by several U.S. Senators and numerous Representatives to boot.

In fact, I may have cost Al Gore the 2000 election because, had the Million Mom March not had its back broken in April-May 2000, it might have just gotten him those few hundred votes in Florida. (He admittedly blew WV, TN, and Arkansas himself.)

I'm pretty good at what I do. Organizational development and organizational behavior are part of what I do for a living and the "dark side" of the techniques one uses in the business world to build an organization up can be used to take an enemy political organization down. Furthermore, I regard all organizations that support terrorists and terrorist entities like the Hamas-occupied Palestinian Authority as my enemies and fair prey for destruction (by legal, nonviolent, and socially-acceptable methods).

Now are you still happy that AFSC and Street Spirit have managed to make me their enemy?

Wrong again

by Tia Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 6:01 PM

" It is 'israel' which is a construct that was brought into existence during the late 40's, not Palestine."

"Israel" as a reality and as a concept has existed for thousands of years.
The Psalms are accepted by Jews, Moslems and Christians. This one sound familiar? It was written over a thousand years ago, after the Jews were exiled from their ancient homeland

"By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
Sat and wept as we all remembered Zion;
It was there on the willows we hung our harps
When our captors called out for songs.

Our tormentors wanted the songs of joy;
They said, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"
How could we sing a song of Zion
While we dwelt in a foreign land?
If I ever forget you, Jerusalem,
May my right hand forget its skill at music;
May my tongue never sing again.
If I forget Jerusalem even in my happiest hour"

Even when the Jews were exiled, their litugy and litergy expressed their longing to return to their ancient homeland.

To the "Moderator"

by Bill Levinson Monday, Apr. 10, 2006 at 8:56 PM

What part of "legal and nonviolent methods" did you not understand when you wrote, "William A. Levinson has stepped out of line with his vague threats to others that are totally unacceptable and unlawful. This has just become a Police matter, and the appropriate AUTHORITIES have been NOTIFIED."

I remind this "moderator" (who could be anyone, although your IP address has doubtlessly been logged and can be obtained with a search warrant) that false reports to agencies of public safety ARE criminal offenses in most jurisdictions. That is something to think about before you "notify the authorities."

Furthermore, your accusation that I have done something "unlawful" is automatically libel (ask your lawyer) and I could technically take legal action against YOU. Again, your IP address and personal identity could be obtained for this purpose with a subpoena and you would not be able to hide behind the name "Moderator." You might want to be much more circumspect in throwing around threats and statements that could easily get YOU into serious legal trouble.

But perhaps you just don't savvy "legal and nonviolent methods." It is, for example, neither illegal nor violent to report a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization to the Internal Revenue Service for allegedly violating Rev Rule 75-384, J. "Activities that are illegal or contrary to public policy." I have in fact reported several pro-terrorist 501(c)(3) tax-exempt groups to the IRS for planning and carrying out civil disobedience and/or encouraging "tax resistance,"* others for channeling 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money to apparently nonexempt activities, and still others for filing less-than-accurate Form 990s with the IRS. Most of them were considerate enough to provide the evidence on their own Web sites, by the way.

IRS REV RULE 75-384, J. ACTIVITIES THAT ARE ILLEGAL OR CONTRARY TO PUBLIC POLICY 1985 EO CPE Text
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-tege/eotopicj85.pdf

(1) Substantiality Test
Violation of constitutionally valid laws is inconsistent with exemption under IRC 501(c)(3).As a matter of trust law, one of the main sources of the general law of charity, planned activities that violate laws are not in furtherance of a charitable purpose." A trust cannot be created for a purpose which is illegal. The purpose is illegal ...if the trust tends to induce the commission of crime or if the accomplishment of the purpose is otherwise against public policy....

(4) Planning Illegal Acts
Not only is the actual conduct of illegal activities inconsistent with exemption, but the planning and sponsoring of such activities are also incompatible with charity and social welfare. Rev.Rul.75-384 holds that an organization formed to promote world peace that planned and sponsored protest demonstrations at which members were urged to commit acts of civil disobedience did not qualify for IRC 501(c)(3) or (4) exemption. G.C.M.36153, dated January 31,1975, states that because planning and sponsoring illegal acts are in themselves inconsistent with charity and social welfare it is not necessary to determine whether illegal acts were, in fact, committed in connection with the resulting demonstrations or whether such a determination can be made prior to conviction of an accused. However, it is necessary to establish that the planning and sponsorship are attributable to the organization, if exemption is to be denied or revoked on this ground.

* The First Amendment does not include a right to break the law, even with nonviolent civil disobedience. Meanwhile, I can just imagine how the IRS will view 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations that encourage people to refuse to pay their taxes.

Hopefully you now have a clearer picture of what I mean by "legal and nonviolent methods." The Million Mom March was, incidentally, destroyed by the public revelation that it was apparently using 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money to fund political campaigns. When that happened, the churches and corporations that were working with it distanced themselves from it rapidly and they also lost the trust of their own rank-and-file. And yes, I am the one who caused this to happen.

Hopefully we have cleared up what is meant by "legal and nonviolent methods" and you will tread more carefully in the future.

William A. Levinson… KELLY CLARKSON!

Here's a guest posting by Nadeem about one of the commentors of recent days on this site, who has gone by the identity of Winged Hussar and an anonymous poster posing as an anti-Semite. For the record, I think the virgin jab is a low blow, but in the name of editorial freedom, here's Nadeem's guest commentary on Bill Levinson, a contributor to the right-wing blog, IsraPundit:

Not forty, but definitely a virgin – this self-proclaimed “Yankee” is both a staunch supporter of the Confederate Flag and an avid Dungeons & Dragons gamer who participates in adult vampire role playing games. Having claimed responsibility for the “destruction” of the Million Mom March and Ace Hardware’s decision to drop Rosie O’Donnell from a national ad campaign, this demon-whore warlord’s newest agenda is waging an epic battle against the 21st Century Christ Killers who’ve managed to organize this weekend’s Fifth Annual Student Conference of the Palestine Solidarity Movement.

Utilizing all of his wizardly powers to develop a language through which only he could insult conference organizers, Bill Levinson has solidified his position in the history of dorks. Armed with his infamous comic strip, The CrUSAders, as well as Ancient Greek Poetry, this “Defender of the West” believes that only through the destruction of Islam will Israel be saved. Advocating for an ethnic cleansing solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and referring to Palestinians as both two-legged locusts and Hitler in a headscarf, this evil virgin Visigoth is indeed a ruthless (virgin) racist.

Rest assured that Bill “The Druid” Levinson, along with his chubby P.L.P., (platonic life partner) Lee Kaplan, will be attending this weekend’s conference on behalf of Stop The ISM – a two-man grassroots organization with no national chapters. If you see Bill, be sure to stop him and say hello. He’ll be the nerdy looking troll wearing chainmail armor and carrying King Arthur’s sword Excalibur!

Killing those planning murder is Self-defense

by Becky Johnson Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 4:24 AM
Santa Cruz, CA.

REPLY TO KEN: Have you been taking Sheepdog lessons?
I seem to see these old, innacurate, issues coming back again. YOUWROTE: "OK, Ken, you advocate the murder of civilians"

No, that's more like the methods used by the 'israelis'.
You Zionists are always quick to accuse the victims, the crimes of the perps as the death toll is much higher on the side of the original inhabitants than the invaders.
Your job is to try to make it look like self defense. It isn't, it's just plain genocide.


BECKY: I'm glad you brought up Israel's targeting killings of known terrorists that the PA has refused to arrest. These are hardly "innocent civilians" although sometimes innocent civilians do get hurt or killed in these operations.

Way back in 1994, when Arafat signed the Oslo Accords, the PA agreed to arrest known terrorists who were residing in the PA. They didn't. Or they arrested them and brought them into the jails thru the front door and let them free out the back door.

For the PA has always secretly supported terrorism against Israel despite their signed document. When Israel realized that the PA was not living up to their ageement to enforce the peace, they launched incursions and targeted killings of known terrorists who were involved in planning new attacks.

There is a provision in the Oslo accords that allows Israel to enter the PA to enforce the law. The Jenin incursion was one such event. The killing of Sheik Yassin was another.

While Israel first files charges, attempts to arrest or try the culprits of terrorism, and when all other options have been exhausted, chooses targeting killings as a solution, the Palestinians purposely target civilians to kill.

The difference is night and day.

One is done as a last resort in an attempt to stem future violence, while the other is done to promote violence against civilians. If you can't tell the difference, then your bias is showing.

As for Genocide---the total death toll in the last 6 years of conflict is about 5,000 dead total on both sides.

REAL examples of Genocide: see Genocides in history
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocides_in_history

If you look, you will not see either Israel nor the PA on the list.

QUESTION TO KEN: Do you think those planning mass murder should be arrested? Since the PA refuses to do so, what SHOULD Israel do?

This thread is a textbok example

by Skeptic Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 6:20 AM

of why articles about the entire Israeli/Palestinian megillah should be routinely shoveled onto the hidden page, just like the Jaime Aymerich spam.

They accomplish nothing but to encourage ideologues and hatefreaks to waste the site's bandwidth yelling at each other. The personal venom doesn't serve any good purpose either.

The practical problem-solving skills the Israelis and Palestinians will need to use to reach some fair settlement of their differences aren't going to come from rigid absolutists ranting on Web sites.

The 'net isn't exactly starving for noisy whacks demonstating that they still haven't recovered from what was done to them in toilet training. What's the point of providing them with more growth medium?

Dealing wth AFSC and Street Spirit/ "A Friend"

by Bill Levinson Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 6:33 AM

Dear A Friend of Saddam,

Thanks for posting my pro-Second Amendment site but you didn't go in far enough. Go to the Million Mom March page and pay close attention to the image at the top. That's "Liquidation," as in "final tax return," as in "kaput," "finis," "the end," "bedee bedee bedee that's all folks!"

I'm the one who did it to them, by exposing their apparent use of 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money to support political campaigns. This may have cost Al Gore the election because, had the MMM not had its back broken in mid-2000, it might have just given Gore those few hundred votes he needed in Florda.

Now before you throw a left-wing hissy fit, I will point out that, had the MMM not been doing anything wrong (running a political campaign with tax-exempt funds), the methods I used would not have been effective against it. The fact that the methods I used were decisively effective suggests strongly that the MMM was indeed not playing by the rules.

=====================

Now for some LEGAL AND NONVIOLENT (got that, "Moderator?") sanctions against Street Spirit and AFSC

Street Spirit should be dealt with by encouraging its financial supporters to redirect their money to a worthy organization like the Salvation Army. If you have something you don't want (e.g. clothing, furniture), give it to the Salvation Army so a homeless or poor person can get some use out of it.

The talking points are as follows.

(1) While Street Spirit may do good work for the homeless, it has apparently mistreated and discriminated against an advocate for the homeless because she argues that Israel has a right to exist-- a view shared by all decent Americans-- and that terroristic murder of Israeli citizens is wrong-- a view also shared by all decent Americans. Street Spirit's discrimination against this person places Street Spirit squarely on the side of the terrorists and there is no reason to promote its continued existence.

(2) Street Spirit's work with the homeless can be taken over by the highly-reputable Salvation Army, a charitable organization that most people are familiar with. (Note: I have no connections, financial or otherwise, with the Salvation Army, although I have donated things to it in the past.)

(3) Street Spirit is part of the American Friends of Saddam Committee, which has sided with the Palestinian terrorists while undermining the Armed Forces of the United States.

Now for the American Friends of Terrorists and Submission to Islamofascism Committee: this is where to write if you see problems with their activities as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

Internal Revenue Service
Exempt Organizations Examination Division
1100 Commerce Street

o "How do I learn more about War Tax Resistance?" "Contact the CO AFSC office and find out about an upcoming War Tax Resistance Workshop and how to get War tax resistance materials. We can also put you in contact with other local war tax resisters who are willing to share their stories. Check out the War tax resistance website."
http://www.afsc.org/pwork/0503/050309.htm, "Peace Tax Return to Protest War"
o Part A of the "Peace Tax Return" is merely a protest against the use of tax dollars for war but Part B involves actual refusal to pay taxes.

Note that, while the IRS probably doesn't have the time or resources to pursue everyone who allegedly violates the tax code, telling people how they can get away with not paying their taxes is probably not the right way to stay on the IRS's good side.

(3) A Web site that encourages soldiers to violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice
http://www.afsc.org/pwork/0504/050406.htm "National Calls for Nonviolent Resistance to the Continuing War in Iraq." In fairness to AFSC, this page carries the disclaimer, "Views expressed are those of the authors, not necessarily of the AFSC." It is, however, a publication of Peacework Magazine, which is part of AFSC and it also appears in AFSC's own Web domain. It includes the following material:

"We therefore advise, counsel and urge soldiers to refuse orders to go to Iraq if in good conscience they decide to do so. We publish and distribute today, and we urge others to do likewise, a call for refusal of orders, and we pledge to follow up with support for soldiers who choose to exercise their right of conscience. Soldiers who seek support can contact the GI Rights Hotline [Quoting these individuals and the GI Rights Hotline does not imply endorsement of this call for civil disobedience by these individuals or the groups who sponsor the hotline] at 800-394-9544, http://www.girights.org."

The Web page itself recognizes, however, that:

18 USC Section 2387 declares it illegal for whomever, with intent, "advises, counsels, urges, or in any manner causes or attempts to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty by any member of the military or naval forces of the United States."

Now, to break this law (I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice), one may have to do something far worse than just put up a Web site, like talking to individual soldiers and encouraging them to commit insubordination, mutiny, disloyalty, refusal of duty, and so on. Nonetheless, the Web page may be sufficiently "contrary to public policy" to be cause for revocation of AFSC's tax-exempt status. Only the IRS can pass judgment on this, however.

(4) Web sites that advocate civil disobedience
http://www.afsc.org/pwork/0302/030212.htm, "Advice for Those Planning Civil Disobedience"
o "Mary E. Lord is Director, AFSC PeaceBuilding Unit."
o "AFSC is a partner in the Pledge of Resistance against a war in Iraq. Some local Pledge groups will engage in civil disobedience during the coming weeks and months."
http://afsc.org/iraq/activism/civil-disobedience.htm, "AFSC's Guide to Civil Disobedience," "Adapted from the Manual of the AFSC Board of Directors"

Rev Rule 75-384 is self-explanatory regarding the above.

If you are aware of the AFSC doing anything similar, like encouraging people to not pay taxes, engage in civil disobedience, or not report for duty if they are obliged to do so as National Guard or Reserve personnel, you should send the evidence here:

Internal Revenue Service
Exempt Organizations Examination Division
1100 Commerce Street
ATTN: SE:T:EO:E
Dallas, TX 75242

Now before "Moderator," "A Friend," and so on start to bleat about "Fasicst dogs" or "Right-wing pigs" for suggesting that the AFSC be reported for these activities, I remind you that the First Amendment protects the right of freedom of expression. It does NOT grant any right to break laws by refusing to pay taxes, violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice by refusing to report for duty, or engaging in even nonviolent civil disobedience. (That's as in, "Yes, you can hold up a sign, but no, you can't block the street.")

By the way, I am quite used to being called a racist; it's what the Left squeals and bleats when it runs out of arguments. (As in, [Indignant whining tone] "The police officer who stopped Cynthia McKinney for trying to bypass a metal detector without showing identification is a racist because he is White and she is Black!" [/Indignant whining tone])

The fact that you are now squealing epithets like "Right-wing pigs" and "Fascist dogs" while attacking me personally, as you attacked Becky, shows that you really do hate me and that my efforts are a serious danger to your agenda of supporting terrorism and undermining the United States. That is good because hate is a direct product of impotent rage, frustration, and also fear. I do not hate you ("A Friend" and "Moderator") any more than I would hate a little mouse or a bug crawling around in my yard.

Posting Nadeem Muaddi's caricature of me is not going to scare me away either. I have humiliated Muaddi on numerous occasions, such as when I posted proof that he engaged in a childish act of Internet vandalism by signing me up for unwanted E-mails. http://kabobfest.blogspot.com/2006/02/william-levinson-kelly-clarkson.html is again an expression of impotent rage (considering the public-relations damage I have inflicted on the International Solidarity Movement, this is understandable) and frustration, and I found it rather amusing. (The same goes for their photoediting a picture of me to create a vampire, and I think a devil as well. I laughed my head off.)

To "Skeptic"

by Bill Levinson Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 6:50 AM

"The practical problem-solving skills the Israelis and Palestinians will need to use to reach some fair settlement of their differences aren't going to come from rigid absolutists ranting on Web sites."

This thread and the conflict to which you object was started by a vicious personal attack on an advocate for the homeless. However, you raise a very valid point and I will be happy to address it.

Henry Ford said that world peace comes from men advancing from wearing kerchiefs (like Humphrey Bogart in "The African Queen") to collared shirts, and women wearing hats instead of shawls. In other words, if you industrialize a society and give its people economic opportunities, they have no reason or desire to go to war to take what belongs to someone else.

Most wars have economic causes. The Civil War was, in fact, caused not by slavery (many Northerners were against abolition because free Blacks would have competed for jobs) but by economic disparities between the industrialized North and the agrarian South. The War of Independence was caused largely by protectionist British policies that prevented the colonies from manufacturing products, and so on.

Industry has, in fact, made the idea of fighting over farmland (the driving force behind war until the past 150-odd years) obsolete, although now there is the problem of fighting over oil.

This model breaks down, however, where the militant Islamic world begins. The Palestinians who took over Gaza were given greenhouses with which to raise food-- the equivalent of "forty acres and a mule." They were given the economic opportunities that Ford said eliminated the driving causes of war. The Palestinians lost no time in looting and destroying the greenhouses, along with synagogues they might have converted into houses, schools, or even mosques.

At this point, one wonders whether it is really possible to have peace with that society. A culture that is so dysfunctional that it destroys its own property (the greenhouses) while raising its children as live ammunition is almost outside human experience. Even the Huns and Mongol Hordes did not destroy their own property, no matter how badly they looted or burned other people's.

No, thats wrong

No, thats simply wrong. "Palestinians" were not ,"Who were there first, even in Bible text. "

The Canaanite tribes that were in what is today Modern Israel were not Arabs. They spoke languages that were very close to Hebrew. Take a look at the Moabite Stela on Wikiedia for an example. Those Canaanites that weren't either wiped out or absorbed by the Hebrew tribes were later wiped out by the Assyrians and Babylonians,as were the Phillistines. Arabs were'nt' significant unil the Moslem invasions of the 7th century. The vast majority of the ancestors of todays "Palestinians" arrived within the last 150 years however. Its only in the last decade or so that they created the claim of being "Canaanites."

Homeless Support Group Under Attack?

by Why? Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 11:04 AM

HOMELESS ADVOCATE & FRIEND ATTACKING HOMELESS SUPPORT GROUP?

Hi- I was in the neighborhood and noticed this insane struggle going on.

Let me try to get this straight if I may.

Long time friends Becky Johnson and Bill Levinson are attacking a group that has been supporting the homeless population in Berkeley?

Which means they are attacking the homeless.

But Becky claims to be an advocate for the homeless?

I don't get it..............

If Becky Johnson is really an advocate for the homeless as she claims and her friend Bill Levinson is attacking a support group for the homeless, then Bill Levinson is actually attacking Becky Johnson and all she stands for.

Makes sense to me!

Now that we got that straight.....

But, since Becky Johnson is helping Bill Levinson attack the homeless, then it appears that Becky Johnson is actually attacking herself and all that she stands for.

Seems logical!

Sooooo, if Becky Johnson & Bill Levinson have united to attack the homeless, but Becky Johnson still demands the right to claim that she is an advocate for the homeless, at the same time;

Then the question arises....

Why should HOMELESS PEOPLE be concerned when someone claiming to be an advocate for them (Becky Johnson), has actually teamed up with another (Bill Levinson) to attack their support group?

Why?

(1) I do not believe you are a moderator. Nonetheless, I've reported your post to Indymedia because I don't think it will be happy about your impersonating a moderator if you are not. If you are, it might be very unhappy with your courting legal trouble (see #2 immediately below) that could involve Indymedia if you are in fact its representative.

(2) A false accusation of lawbreaking is automatically libel. (The other three ways to "crash land" are accusing someone of incompetence in his profession, accusing someone of having a "loathsome disease," presumably AIDS or VD, and accusing a woman of being unchaste. This is not legal advice as I am not a lawyer but you might do well to talk to yours before continuing as you are doing). I COULD technically come after you personally with an attorney and your service provider would have to identify you if presented with a subpoena.

If you are in fact acting on Indymedia's behalf, Indymedia also might be liable for your reckless and irresponsible ego trip, but I do not believe this to be the case. I think you are a loose cannon who is trying to put Indymedia's name on your immature actions.

(3) Re: "This is the FINAL Warning! "
In response to your "final warning," I hereby reiterate my intention to deal with pro-terrorist organizations through legal, socially-acceptable, and nonviolent methods such as reporting potential violations of their 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status to the Internal Revenue Service. In fact, it is not merely an "intention" as I actually did this some time ago. Now please feel free to issue me another "final warning" or else hold your breath until you turn blue-- but then Code 5150 would apply to you. :-)

"Why" wrote,

"If Becky Johnson is really an advocate for the homeless as she claims and her friend Bill Levinson is attacking a support group for the homeless, then Bill Levinson is actually attacking Becky Johnson and all she stands for."

No, I am attacking an organization that has apparently discriminated against and abused an advocate for the homeless for opposing terrorism and saying that Israel has the right to exist. Joseph Anderson bragged about making Becky "toast" at Street Spirit, which presumably means he got her removed from the organization, on the basis of her opposition to terrorism and support for Israel's right to exist. Furthermore, aid for the homeless can be redirected through the Salvation Army.

I am not Becky Johnson's "long-time friend" either. I never heard of her or Joseph Anderson until I learned about this problem. Like I said earlier, I am not the kind of person who likes it when a bully hits an innocent woman, whether literally or, as in this case, figuratively.

AFSC, by promoting an anti-Israel boycott while having little or nothing to say about Palestinian terrorism, has shown exactly where it stands. I'm not going to paraphrase George Bush by telling AFSC "you're with us or you're with the terrorists"-- a religious and supposedly pacifist organization like AFSC has every right to stand neutral-- but AFSC has in fact chosen a side and made itself a party to a political conflict. That was AFSC's choice and not mine or anyone else's.

Re: "Homeless People," aka Joseph Anderson or the ISM

by Bill Levinson Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 5:19 PM

More cowardly sniping at Becky from anonymous unknowns. Suspects include Joseph Anderson, "The Moderator," and members of the International Solidarity Movement. The AFSC also comes to mind.

Statements by anyone who is not willing to sign his or her posts with a real name should be discounted as irresponsible and false. If I wanted, I could sign several posts under different identities but that is not how I do things. PEOPLE have names, nobodies and nonentities sign their posts "The Moderator," "Why," "A Friend," "Mom," and so on.

Like Palestinian terrorists who do not care whom their actions hurt, this individual who signs his name "The Homeless" is now trying to disrupt HUFF, which has nothing to do with the conflict that was apparently started by Joseph Anderson.

This kind of cowardly warfare, whether physical or political, is typical of the Islamofascist culture. The Islamofascist will snipe at his enemies from a distance, and perhaps pick off wounded and dying stragglers (and then kill the wounded and mutilate and rob the dead), but he will not stand his ground against anyone who stands up to him. As an example, the Crimean Horde, which had been waiting to sack Vienna in 1683 (after the Turks did the dangerous job of actually breaching the defenses), rape the women, kill and rob the wounded, and smash babies' heads against walls, ran away without striking a single blow when the Polish cavalry emerged from the Kahlenberg Forest. Spanish legend says Islamofascists ran away from a DEAD GUY at the siege of Valencia during the Middle Ages.

Meanwhile, I am still waiting for "The Moderator" to give me my next "final warning," or alternatively scream like a baby with a soiled diaper, wave his fist in the air, stamp his foot, and be swallowed up by the earth. (Or was that Rumplestiltskin who did that?) I can see that this individual hates me, which is good because hate is the product of fear, impotent rage, and frustration.

Quite frankly, this thread is starting to degenerate and maybe it should not have been started at all. However, as the "Research Committee" chose to abuse Indymedia for a vicious personal attack, it must accept responsibility for the current state of affairs.

Your Palestinian heroes: "Batter a woman and kill a gay for Allah"

by Bill Levinson Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 5:30 PM

Here are the so-called people that Joseph Anderson and now Street Spirit, "The Moderator," and "Research Committee" are standing up for. I just thought Indymedia's gay and feminist community ought to know about these things.

TREATMENT OF GAY PEOPLE BY THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

Do a Google search for "Palestinian" and "gays" and you will see planty
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&c2coff=1&as_qdr=all&q=palestinian+gays&btnG=Search

The Yale Herald (November 2004) reports,

"The Palestinian Authority subsequently arrested Adam three times for his sexual orientation, torturing and humiliating him. It is illegal to be gay in the Palestinian Authority, Eli said, and the police actually employ special undercover agents that seek out gay men, whom the police then torture, kill, or force to work as prostitutes. It is not surprising, Eli said, that he and Adam decided to flee to Israel, the only place where they would not be persecuted for their sexuality." http://www.yaleherald.com/article.php?Article=3749


"Gay Palestinians Suffer under Arafat" says in part,

"It is not widely known that, along with its war against Israel, the Palestinian Authority is conducting a vicious campaign against its own homosexual population. The New Republic, in its Aug. 19 issue, exposed hideous human rights violations by the Palestinian Authority, which employs special police squads to capture men who have sex with each other. The lucky ones are forced to stand in sewage water up to their necks or lie in dark cells infested with insects; others are simply starved to death." http://www.sodomylaws.org/world/israel/isnews004.htm

Gay Man Criticizes Palestinian Society (Alex Tehranian, Special to The Hoya Friday, October 22, 2004; Page A1):

"A Palestinian man described the challenges of living as a homosexual in what he deemed an oppressive society last Tuesday in New South. …He said he was unwilling to reveal his last name or hometown for fear of being discovered by the Palestinian Authority." http://www.thehoya.com/news/102204/news6.cfm

Palestinian Gays Seek Safety in Israel:

"For these gay men, life in the seedy parts of central Israel is far better than the virtual death sentences they fled in the West Bank and Gaza Strip." "Torture by Palestinian Authority security services or vigilante attacks by relatives is a fate suffered by countless gays in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, where sodomy carries a jail term of three to 10 years." "Islam prescribes capital punishment for homosexual activity." http://www.sodomylaws.org/world/israel/isnews005.htm

PALESTINIAN TREATMENT OF WOMEN
Domestic violence, misogyny, and femicide

http://www.merip.org/mer/mer206/ruggi.htm
"Every year, hundreds of women and girls are murdered in the Middle East by male family members. The honor killing-the execution of a female family member for perceived misuse of her sexuality- is a thorny social and political issue. Palestinian activists campaigning for equality find it difficult to stop the killings altogether. Legitimacy for such murders stems from a complex code of honor ingrained in the consciousness of some sectors of Palestinian society."

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=35663
"A Palestinian girl who was raped and impregnated by her two brothers was later murdered by her own mother – even though her daughter was the crime's innocent victim – in another of the disturbingly common, if vastly underreported, instances of "honor killings." The mother will be sentenced in two weeks, but a harsh penalty is not expected."

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2001793273_honorkilling17.html
"ABU QASH, West Bank — Raped by her brothers and impregnated, Rofayda Qaoud refused to commit suicide, her mother recalls, even after she bought the 17-year-old a razor with which to slit her wrists. So Amira Abu Hanhan Qaoud says she did what she believes any good Palestinian parent would: restored her family's "honor" through murder."

IS THIS WHAT WE ARE NOW SUPPORTING IN INDYMEDIA'S "PROGRESSIVE" COMMUNITY?

Come on, Joseph Anderson, crawl out of your hole and say that you stand behind the Palestinians on this. Come on, Research Committee, sign some real names and tell us why this sort of thing is justified. BRING IT ON.

So now it's "Progressive Community" instead of "Homeless?"

by Bill Levinson Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2006 at 8:05 PM

Posting under a new name, are we?

"Meanwhile, progressives in support of the homeless, urge the Santa Cruz Community to urge Becky Johnson and co-hort Bill Levinson to suspend their attack on the homeless population immediately!"

This is ludicrous. Why do you think you can continue to attack Becky Johnson and expect our side to relent for an instant?

We are not attacking "the homeless population," we are criticizing and denouncing the entity that apparently discriminated against an advocate for the homeless for an issue totally unrelated to its stated mission and efforts. Please do not confuse the issues.

Now for an update on your heroic Palestinians:
http://www.israelnewsagency.com/israelpalestineterrorism127691.html

"Palestinian terrorists murdered 4 young Jewish children and their pregnant mother this afternoon. The terror attack targeted the family vehicle while it was traveling on the road that leads to the Gaza Strip settlement bloc of Gush Katif."

"...The terrorists arrived by car from the nearby Palestinian village of Dir al Ballah and began to fire at passing Israeli vehicles, consequently killing the mother and her four children. Another Israeli traveling in the opposite direction, was also wounded."

"After spraying the station wagen with bullets, the Palestinian terrorists walked up to the 4 terrified little girls and shot each one of them twice in the head, police said. The 8-month-old pregnant mother was shot in her belly at point blank range as she tried to cover her children."

==================

Well, that is certainly an advance for Palestinian "civilization," isn't it? They've gone from murdering babies to shooting unborn babies in their mothers' wombs! It's nice to see the American Friends Service Committee and the other fine folks in the so-called progressive community standing up for this behavior.

Anti-terrorist is not "anti-homeless"

by Bill Levinson Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2006 at 7:33 AM

" An attack on a program serving the homeless, IS an attack on the homeless! "

You are really pathetic. You seem to think you can do whatever you please and behave as badly as you want under the color of charity and altruism. Welcome to the real world.

Some time ago, I exposed the tax-exempt Middle East Children's Alliance for apparently (per the International Solidarity Movement's Web site) channeling money to the ISM, whose activities hardly seem tax-exempt. The ISM's leaders Huwaida Arraf and Adam Shapiro are in fact on record in the Palestine Chronicle as advocating terroristic violence, and the ISM sends activists to Israel to interfere with law enforcement and security. The fact that MECA may also provide food and toys to children in the Middle East does not excuse its behavior with regard to the ISM.

It's nice that Street Spirit aids the homeless and I wish this whole sorry state of affairs had never occurred. As Street Spirit (per Joseph Anderson) made Becky Johnson "toast" for opposing terrorism and supporting Israel's right to exist, however, it has by its own choice taken a side in a political conflict in which it should have remained neutral.

Bill- i didn't know you wrote that essay- what was it called- "Child Abuse in Berkeley"? That was excellent . As I recall, a disproportionate amount of the money MECA takes in went to salaries and administrative costs- they received the lowest rating by Guidestar- the non-profit rating organization. I hope Alison Weir is next on your list- i have been trying to get a copy of her 990, but no luck yet. Its not on the California AG's website, yet.

Anyway, you should be greatly amused to learn that I posted a fresh copy of your essay on a lampost outside MECA's office for weeks, a few months back. I'll start again when the rains stop. My morning routine- coffee, brisk walk, torment Barbra. What fun!

Middle East Children's Alliance

by Bill Levinson Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2006 at 10:26 AM

Hi Tia,

I didn't write "Child Abuse in Berkeley" but I heard that MECA got a very poor efficiency rating for its use of tax exempt money. I did post this item on why MECA should have its 501(c)(3) tax exemption challenged.

http://www.israpundit.com/archives/2006/02/another_palesti.php

In fact, http://www.palsolidarity.org/main/donations/ shows that MECA is still channeling tax-exempt funds to the International Solidarity Movement. Maybe the California AG should have a look at this.

This one shows why the American Frauds for Saddam Committee (the parent of Street Spirit as I understand) should have its tax exemption challenged.
http://www.israpundit.com/archives/2006/01/christian_quisl.php

"Rachel Weisz" in the comment section is, incidentally, Nadeem Muaddi as identified from the IP address. I let him keep posting under what he thought were anonymous names while laughing my head off at him and getting valuable intelligence information as well.

Alison Weir got an honorary sheet and hood from David DuKKKe, who posted one of her articles on his Web site in its entirety with a glowing (perhaps from the light from the burning cross in the background) recommendation. Here is my article on Alison Weir.

Becky Johnson's Attack On The Homeless

by Peoples Brigade Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2006 at 12:00 PM

Removing The Ugly Mask of Hatred & Self Righteous Bigotry

This hatefest against the homeless population cannot be masked by the boasting of an immoral imbecile, nor the pretensions of an ex-homeless advocate seeking revenge against others.

When the hateful reap what they sow, they have no one to blame but themselves.

Homeless people do not support the efforts of Becky Johnson or Bill Levinson in their schemes to attack anyone, especially the homeless programs that support them.

This shamefull example of hatred being expressed by Bill Levinson, is an extension of his White Supremicist activities run amuck.

The on-going attack upon the homeless population by Becky Johnson and Bill Levinson shall go down in history as just another chapter in The Crusade of Fools...

Speaking of which, I am waiting for "The Moderator" to give me yet another final warning, or alternatively scream to high heaven, stamp his feet, and tear his hair out.

You "progressives" have yet to justify your Palestinian allies' persecution of women, religious minorities, and gay people. Speaking of which, let me tell you how I wrecked Indybay.org's credibility and will continue to do so in the future. Their "Collective" was stupid enough to hide very straightforward articles I posted on Palestinian and other Islamofascist abuses of women, gays, and minorities-- that is, the very people the Independent Media Network claims to defend-- thus proving that Bay Area Indymedia's support for basic human rights ends where the Islamofascist world begins. Not only that, the "Collective" kept doing it so my campaign was about as sporting as shooting fish in a barrel.

I see, however, that la.indymedia.org permits open discussions and does not censor anything but (apparently) obvious libel. I respect this Indymedia for this even though I do not agree with some of the content. Similarly, I do not censor or delete replies to any of my postings at IsraPundit except for spam that is totally unrelated to the posting or anything else, even if the replies are hostile to me. If I can't stand behind what I post, I shouldn't post it.

It's refreshing, though, to see that you can't do anything other than to spew left-wing slogans. The problem with fighting your kind is that it could take my edge off-- I have to deal with some high-powered lobbying organizations in my part of the country and they are not frothing-at-the-mouth left-wing ideologues, they are real competition.

AFSC (Street Spirit's parent) lobbies for terrorists

by Bill Levinson Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2006 at 2:54 PM

The Anti-American Frauds for Saddam Committee is lobbying on behalf of Hamas, a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) as defined by the U.S. State Department. The sooner AFSC is exposed to the entire country as an Islamofascist stooge (if not worse) the better.

http://www.afsc.org/israel-palestine/default.htm

Get Involved
Take Action Against Anti-Palestinian Legislation

Some Members of Congress have urged that the United States adopt draconian economic and diplomatic measures against the Palestinian people. These calls have come following the Palestinian Legislative Council elections in January 2006 where Hamas won 74 of 132 seats. Learn how you can join the AFSC in opposing this legislation.

=======================
Here is the legislation AFSC opposes:
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h109-4681

It shall be the policy
OF

4 of the United States to promote the emergence of a demo-
5 cratic Palestinian governing authority that–
6 (1) denounces and combats terrorism;
7 (2) has agreed to and is taking action to disarm
8 and dismantle any terrorist agency, network, or fa-
9 cility;
10 (3) has agreed to work to eliminate anti-Israel
11 and anti-Semitic incitement and the commemoration
12 of terrorists in Palestinian society;
13 (4) has agreed to respect the boundaries and
14 sovereignty of its neighbors;
15 (5) acknowledges, respects, and upholds the
16 human rights of all people;
17 (6) conducts free, fair, and transparent elec-
18 tions in compliance with international standards;
19 (7) ensures institutional and financial trans-
20 parency and accountability; and
21 (8) has agreed to recognize the State of Israel
22 as an independent, sovereign, Jewish, democratic
23 state.


So it seems that the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, American Friends of Saddam Committee, and the other usual vermin support arming terrorists, anti-Semitic incitement, refusing to recognize Israel, and denying human rights people (including Palestinian women, gay people, and religious minorities, we assume).

Here is their reasoning:

"This resolution, introduced after the recent Palestinian legislative election which resulted in a Hamas victory, goes far beyond reiterating the current US ban on direct assistance to the Palestinian Authority; it also calls for many troubling provisions that would punish and isolate the Palestinian people for exercising their right to vote."

Well, yes, just like a ban on direct assistance to Nazi Germany in the 1930s would have punished the German people for exercising their right to vote (which they lost pretty quickly after the Nazis decided that elections were an inconvenient annoyance). The Palestinians chose to elect TERRORISTS who are in an openly declared state of war with Israel so they must live with the consequences.

By the way, I wonder just how much lobbying AFSC (which does not have to file a Form 990 with the IRS) is allowed to do as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

MECA

by Tia Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2006 at 4:57 PM

The author I was thinking of is Michael Tremoglie. The essay is worth reading

It contains such choice morsels as:

"According to its IRS filings, MECA’s revenues are $12 million from 1996 to 1999, $3 million in 2000 and $4 million in 2001-a total of $15 million in revenues from 1996 to 2001. If you were to include revenues from 1988 to 1995 MECA has spent less than 60 percent of its total revenues for humanitarian purposes. Despite its altruistic appellation, MECA is spending about half of their funds for non-humanitarian purposes. One would think an organization called the Middle East Children’s Alliance would be spending most of their funds aiding kids?"

and

"Activists, politicians, and ideologues staff MECA. What they have in common is a loathing of Israel and America. This is consistent with MECA’s disturbing relationships with Al-Awda, the Palestinian Solidarity Committee, and International ANSWER."

I'm glad you are on our side, Bill.

exactly - they've made it perfectly clear

so this thread DID serve a useful purpose..

they exposed themselves - proudly showing everyone the homeless actually mean NOTHING to them, that it was ALSO a cover

so JA was correct about that as well..



and Bill - Becky can whine all she likes about FRSC airing voices she wishes to silence, but in the process of JA exposing her I became involved as another station in solidarity with them, so I put another signal on the air (103.7) playing the same programming, and she has no idea at all where it's at, so there's nothing she can do about it

Indybay.org discredits Indymedia and doesn't care about women, gays, or minorities

by Bill Levinson Thursday, Apr. 13, 2006 at 6:16 AM

Becky wrote, "What my spying has discovered is that Indybay.org is censoring both individuals they don't like, and opinions they disagree with. In the case of this article, they censored 7 out of 8 comments."

Spying isn't even necessary. The Indybay.org "collective" forgot to read their own people's (Marx's and Krushchev's) advice and sold me plenty of rope with which to hang them and shovels to bury them.

Here is proof that Indybay.org's purported support for women, gays, and religious minorities ends where the militant "Islamic" world begins. The progressive community should realize that Indybay.org is a scam and stop supporting it, and Indymedia should consider disowning it because of the discredit it brings on Indymedia by association.

Excerpts only, click the URLs to see PROOF that Indybay.org is betraying its gay and female constituency while discrediting the Independent Media Center and violating its own editorial rules as well. INDYBAY.ORG = LOOSE CANNON. Actually, there are even more examples but I have neither time nor space to post them all.

http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=601
SF Bay Area Indymedia discredits Independent Media Center

During the past couple of weeks, we have compiled incontrovertible evidence that the San Fransicso Bay Area Indymedia (IndyBay) is openly going against the Independent Media Center’s stated mission and bringing discredit upon Indymedia throughout the world. IndyBay.org now has a proven record of censoring articles that condemn abuse of women, Christians, and gay people for no conceivable reason except to prevent condemnation of militant Islamic nations that are doing the oppressing. We therefore call upon the Independent Media Center to disown IndyBay.org as a rogue organization whose actions are not consistent with IndyMedia’s ideals.

http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=579
San Francisco Bay Indymedia: OK to kill gays for Allah

San Francisco Bay Indymedia’s position on gay rights cannot possibly be more clear; the natural human rights of gay people to not be persecuted or even killed because of their sexual orientation ends where the militant “Islamic” world begins. The Palestinian and now apparently even Iranian causes are so sacred to Indybay that anything, including brutalization and murder of women and gay people, must not be mentioned if it makes fundamentalist Islam look bad.

San Francisco Bay Indymedia must be OK with Ahmadinejad’s position on killing gays for Allah because it wasted no time in concealing the following from its readership in violation of its own editorial rules.

http://israpundit.com/2006/?p=530
SF Bay Area Indymedia betrays trust of gays

We did not really intend to set up San Francisco Bay Area Indymedia with our column on oppression of gays, lesbians, and bisexuals in the Middle East but, by changing the article’s status to “hidden,” Bay Area Indymedia has totally forfeited its credibility with the very people whose cause it pretends to champion. We will next see if Bay Area Indymedia and other Indymedia groups really do oppose oppression of women wherever it occurs in the world, or whether Islamofascists get a special Indymedia dispensation to treat women the way they treat gay people.

http://israpundit.com/2006/?p=531
SF Bay Indymedia: Don’t talk about Islamofascist misogyny

We previously described how San Fransisco Bay Area Indymedia wasted no time in hiding an article on abuse and persecution of gay people by the Palestinian Authority. It is now obvious that information about domestic violence, wife battering, misogyny, rape, and femicide are unwelcome at IndyBay.org if the perpetrators are of the militant “Islamic” persuasion.

http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=680
SF Bay Area Indymedia: OK to murder female journalists

San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center (IndyBay.org) has again fulfilled our expectations by censoring an article on Iran’s brutal murder-by-torture of Canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi. It is eminently clear that SF Bay Area Indymedia will censor anything that makes Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his militant Islamic predecessors look bad.

http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=547
SF Bay Indymedia: Don’t discuss Islamofascist child rape

We previously showed that San Francisco Bay Area Indymedia, a supposed champion and advocate for women, gays, and other traditionally-oppressed groups, takes down articles that discuss apparently off-limits topics like militant Islamic gay-bashing, misogyny, domestic violence, and oppression of women. SF Bay Indymedia has demolished its own credibility yet again by taking down an article on socially- and legally-sanctioned child rape in Saudi Arabia. It should now be obvious to IndyBay.org’s feminist and gay readers, as well as to everyone else who supports basic human rights unequivocally, that IndyBay’s strident support for human rights ends where the militant Islamic world begins.

Genocide?- Can you read?

by Let's help you out here Thursday, Apr. 13, 2006 at 7:30 AM

Genocide.
For the reading chalanged.

Genocide is defined by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG) article 2 as any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: "Killing members of the group; Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

Genocide: yes

by Bill Levinson Thursday, Apr. 13, 2006 at 9:08 AM

For the spelling chalanged, it's "challenged."

"Genocide is defined by the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG) article 2 as any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: "Killing members of the group; Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; "

Then the terrorist-occupied Palestinian government is guilty of genocide according to CPPCG because of its ongoing efforts to destroy a national group (Israelis), noting that school shootings (Ma'alot) and suicide bombings kill members of the group and cause serious bodiliy harm to the group.

"Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group..."

Well, I would say that deliberatly shooting a pregnant Israeli woman in her uterus to kill her unborn baby would have the latter effect so the Palestinians are definitely guilty of genocide by these definitions.

Readers Object To Becky Johnson Santa Cruz Sentinel Story:

The Santa Cruz Story in question misleads the public about the reality of Becky Johnson and her activities.

No real self respecting homeless advocate would ever be caught up into an attack on a homeless program that assists those in need.

Unfortunately, it is true that Becky Johnson been attacking the homeless.

Everyone knows that Bill Levinson and Becky Johnson have launched a vicious campaign against the homeless, by attacking the Berkeley program for the homeless that supports their needs.

We The People want the Santa Cruz Sentinel to know that Becky Johnson is NOT an advocate for the homeless.

Becky Johnson has been attacking the homeless.

Homeless people do not support Becky Johnson's attack on the homeless program/paper in Berkeley known as Street Spirit, and the Santa Cruz Sentinel should write a story about that!

Thanks for the contact information. I think I can get a letter-writing campaign going to expose the Santa Cruz "progressive" community's support for foreign terrorist organizations, to the extent of Indybay.org's censorship of anything critical of femicide, gendercide, misogyny, and gay bashing by Islamofascists.

Plenty can be said about Street Spirit's connection to the anti-American Frauds for Saddam Committee and its implicit support of terrorism (as shown by its treatment of Becky for merely speaking out against terrorism and saying that Israel has the right to exist).

Plenty of Street Spirit's functions can be taken over by other organizations and probably done better. I will in fact send some recommendations to competing homeless advocacy groups.

THE HEROIC PALESTINIAN PEOPLE AT WORK
Palestinian leaders commit crimes against humanity, including crimes against their own people.
http://www.usnews.com/usnews/opinion/articles/051219/19edit.htm

...the killing of Jews is presented as a relgious obligation-- labeling them the enemies of Allah, all to be annhilated.
...This notion of the shahid martyr has become so ingrained in the Palestinian culture that it is a major theme of formal education, family values, religious practices, television broadcasting, posters, pre-suicide eulogies, trading cards, family celebrations, movies, music, games, and summer camp. A study by a Palestinian psychiatrist, Shafik Massalah, found that over half of the Palestinian population ages 5 to 11 dreams of becoming a suicide bomber. The same Maadi said on PA-controlled television, "Shame upon he who does not educate his children in the education of jihad. Blessings upon he who dons a vest of explosives on himself or on his children and goes upon the midst of the Jews." Yet the international media and many governments say almost nothing about these vicious trends. (Mortimer Zuckerman, "A Fulcrum Moment." U.S. News & World Report, December 19 2005)

While you are Turbo-e-mailing my destruction.....

Santa Cruz, CA.

While you are Turbo-...
becky_arrest_for_chalking.jpg, image/jpeg, 800x558

...can you say a word for the homeless?

Response to We the People:

First, you are not "the people". You are some guy on a computer. I'm guessing fairly lonely guy.

Second, you "object" to my name being used in a news story. Hmmm. I suppose if I got hit by a truck and wound up in a news story you would object. How dumb is that?

Third, you could care less if homeless people in Santa Cruz who take refuge in any one of our 4 HUGE parking garages or 14 city surface lots get ticketed for trying to stay dry which for homeless people = stay alive.

But you could care less about that.

Have you ever considered the Sleeping Ban? You probably have one in your town you smug warm electificed anonymous blowhard, but don't even know it.

If your girlfriend ( the one you will get and then lose) ever kicks you out inthe middle of the night and you wind up sleeping in your car, you will find out if your town also has a sleeping Ban.

In our town, MC 6.36.010 section a outlaws the very act of sleeping from 11PM to 8:30 AM every night of the year including Christmas. The fine for getting caught sleeping at night---anywhere out of doors in the entire city in or out of a vehicle---on both public and private property (with a few small exceptions).

A separate section outlaws the use of blankets.

How do you think that would impact you if you suddenly found yourself on the streets.

How many city council meetings have you gone down to, and sat for four hours to have 2 minutes to speak on behalf of homeless people?

You may object to Sentinel writer Shanna McCord choosing to quote me, but it is not because I am not a legitimate and knowlegable voice in this area,

for you my crime is that I support Israel.
In your mind, anyone who supports Israel should be denied all human rights in life. They should be hounded, smeared, tarred and feathered, and publically pilloried. I know you believe this because that is what you are doing.

I'm sorry you don't want me to be who I am or do what I do or write what I write. You don't have to read anything I write.
I give you complete permission to ignore my writings every single time. It helps if I can post under my own name so you can take every advantage to avoid reading my words. but sometimes, due to the heavy hand of the censors, and real fear my words will be lost to some anonymous growling Jew-hater wearing a Peace button with a heavy hand on the delete button, so I occasionaly use a different name under which to post.

If you DO write Shanna McCord, please also ask her if homeless people who will be pushed out into the rain by this new 15-Minutes-then-Jail Law, will get wet, cold, or sick?

Becky Johnson's Attack On Homeless Program

by Homeless People Thursday, Apr. 13, 2006 at 9:33 PM

Becky Johnson's Attack On Homeless Program

Listen to our MESSAGE!

Homeless people do not support Becky Johnson's attack on the Street Spirit program that assists the homeless in Berkeley!

Homeless people do not support Bill Levinson's attack with Becky Johnson on the homeless people in Berkeley!

This is not about race, creed or color.

This is all about the vicious attack taking place against the homeless population in Berkeley by Becky Johnson, and how this attack has affected others.

Using a photo of homeless people above as a human sheild to cover her very real attack on the homeless in Berkeley, takes this CRUSADE of hers to an all time low.

The question remains:

Why did Becky Johnson team up with Bill Levinson to attack the the homeless program known as Street Spirit in Berkeley?

That IS the question...

An attack on Street Spirit, IS an attack on the homeless!

In The Spotlight: Becky's Handi-work Against the Homeless

by Eye Witness Thursday, Apr. 13, 2006 at 10:26 PM

In The Spotlight:

--Becky's Dilemma--

To Be, or Not To Be:

Becky Johnson's Handi-work Against The Homeless

In recent days, Becky Johnson of Santa Cruz teamed up with Bill Levinson to attack and dismantle a program that assists homeless people in Berkeley.

The program is known as Street Spirit, and it helps the homeless population to earn cash for their vital needs.

No matter what excuse is being used to promote the attack on the homeless people of Berkeley, it can never be justified.

Real Homeless advocates would never attack this kind of a program for the destitute, and that is Becky's Dilemma...

Click below to see how Becky Johnson is attacking the homeless in Berkeley with her friend Bill levinson....

http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=651#more-651

This is not about Becky Johnson's right to defend the grisly Murder of a Palestinian child, who had a family, school friends and a future that was cut short by a hail of bullets from professional killers. Such a warm beautiful child that Becky Johnson herself never knew...

This is all about the on-going attack on a homeless program, master minded by Becky Johnson and her partner, Bill Levinson.

Eyewitness Needs Glasses

Santa Cruz, CA.

EYEWITNESS WRITES: "No matter what excuse is being used to promote the attack on the homeless people of Berkeley, it can never be justified."

BECKY: If you were an actual eye-witness, you would know that Street Spirit is a SF BAY AREA paper, and not tailored to just Berkeley homeless people. But since you don't know squat about homeless advocacy, you don't know this. Big surprise.

I have not attacked the homeless. In fact, every action of mine has been to defend the homeless from draconian laws, abuse especially by police, and from bigoted attitudes by those lucky enough to have a roof.

Bill Levinson has raised issues regarding Street Spirit's umbrella organization, AFSC.

Bill Levinson's articles are in Israpundit.

Bill Levinson says he has contacted the IRS about possible tax code problems at AFSC.

Do I know Bill Levinson? Yes and no.

I never even heard of Bill Levinson before JA started his attacks on me here at LA. Indymedia.
since then he has taken an interest in this issue.
As you can see by his posts, he and I share similar positions on many issues re: the mideast.

I'd like to point out that Bill has not attacked Street Spirit for anything other than a heavy-handed policy about not allowing their writers to hold opinions on topics little related to homeless issues: a position they deserve to be critiicised for.

the only way homeless people are hurt by any aspect of this situation, is currently they have lost the voice of one longtime advocate to speak on their behalf.

Bill Levinson had NOTHING to do with that!!
In fact, he has spoken out against this repressive policy.

To Becky

by Tia Friday, Apr. 14, 2006 at 6:09 AM

Becky- how about some of us writing a couple letters to the editors in the East Bay Express, the Chron, anywhere else?

This situation is an embarrassment to all true progressives- I personally think some publicity in the wider community would be helpful. We've hestitated to do this before, because you seemed commited to fighting your own battles. Anything that has the potential to impact funding will have to be taken seriously by the American Friends Service Committee.

Homeless People = Eyewitness = Research Committee

by Bill Levinson Friday, Apr. 14, 2006 at 6:39 AM

You really need to get help for your multiple personality disorder. Furthermore, re:

" Why did Becky Johnson team up with Bill Levinson to attack the the homeless program known as Street Spirit in Berkeley?"

Like the Islamofascist terrorists who are attacking Israel or, for that matter, the typical schoolyard bully who goes screaming to the teacher when his victim hits him BACK, you confuse cause with effect. (A relative told me, in fact, that some students are so poorly educated that they think Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in retaliation for Hiroshima and Nagasaki.)

Becky did not team up with me to attack Street Spirit. Street Spirit, as I understand this problem, teamed up with Joseph Anderson to attack Becky. Upon seeing that, and noting Street Spirit's association with the anti-American Frauds for Saddam Committee, I THEN decided to criticize Street Spirit.

The sole cause of this controversy is Street Spirit's reprehensible and inexcusable decision to discriminate against an advocate for the homeless for opposing terrorism and supporting Israel's right to exist.

Street Spirit = useless left-wing whining and gum-beating

by Bill Levinson Friday, Apr. 14, 2006 at 7:18 AM

I finally had a look at Street Spirit and I saw Becky's excellent "Ten minutes, then jail" article at http://www.thestreetspirit.org/March2006/santacruz.htm. This article raises the very valid point that homeless people need a place to sleep and take shelter from the rain. If their congregating in garages is a problem, the city needs to provide an acceptable place for them to go.

Upon continuing through the rest of the paper, however, I see that it includes a lot of whining and gum-beating. Jack Bragen writes that the U.S. is an "Orwellian society" and then whines about not being able to hold jobs because he is fired or harassed for complaining about unsafe working conditions. http://www.thestreetspirit.org/March2006/orwellian.htm

Here is a link that can be used by anyone who encounters conditions similar to those Mr. Bragen encountered:
http://www.osha.gov/dep/oia/whistleblower/index.html
and http://www.osha.gov/as/opa/worker/index.html "How to file a complaint with OSHA"

Now how's that for a "fascist dog" and "right-wing pig" like me? In contrast to "progressive" Jack Bragen, who merely posted a tirade, I just posted information that workers in unsafe workplaces can actually use to protect themselves if their employers won't fix the safety problems. Could it actually be that I am NOT a warmongering capitalist imperialist neo-Nazi Zionist Yankee-pig oppressor of the downtrodden proletarian people's working class?

To Mr. Bragen's credit, he finally did file a complaint with CAL-OSHA but most of his article consists merely of complaining, perhaps to show what a lousy country he lives in. (The "lousy country" he lives in, as shown by the OSHA links, does not tolerate the working conditions he describes although the People's Proletarian Paradise of Red China does.)

Then there is Lydia Gans' "Big Brother Disqualifies the Poor from Getting Help" http://www.thestreetspirit.org/January2006/bigbrother.htm

"The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty found significant numbers of people are being denied basic benefits because they do not have a photo ID. "

Did it ever occur to this writer that the reason for requiring a photo ID is to prevent identity thieves and illegal aliens from stealing money from programs that are meant for needy American citizens and legal immigrants? About the only halfway constructive complaint I saw involved the need for a birth certificate, which adoptees cannot get.

Now get Carol Harvey's "Resisting Abusive Corporate Power" http://www.thestreetspirit.org/Feb2006/corporate.htm

"Corporate plutocrats such as J.P. Morgan, Dupont, and Goodyear Tire hated the New Deal and contrived a failed fascist plot to overthrow this Democratic president. Since then, Republicans have waged a stealth campaign to reconfigure national government into a corporatocracy."

A fascist plot to overthrow the President, and they were never prosecuted??? Of course Ms. Harvey forgets that corporations provide jobs and economic opportunities, and many of the oppressed proletarian workers are also the bloodsucking capitalist pigs (because of employee stock purchasing programs).

Now here is Terry Messman himself.
http://www.thestreetspirit.org/Nov2005/legacy.htm
What, exactly, does this anti-Iraq war tirade have to do with helping the homeless? Furthermore, all the stuff about the draft is irrelevant because we have an all-volunteer army. This is merely the AFSC's ongoing attempts to undermine our Armed Forces, in this case under the color of advocating for the homeless.

In any event, Street Spirit seems to reflect the anti-American Frauds for Saddam Committee by spewing illogical left-wing dogma in between making a show of advocating for the homeless. Oh yes, they got rid of Becky so the proportion of left-wing ravings to genuine homeless advocacy will be even higher than it was in March.

This, in fact, sounds like good fodder for another article...

"COUP and COUNTER COUP AT HUFF"

HUFF has not even discussed whether I should be suspended, ousted, terminated or re-instated. HUFF has made NO decisions one way or another about my postings on an entirely different topic.

In regards to coup, Becky says...

Who cares? This is more PR on BJ's part to try and win sympathy for her cause, and portray herself as the victim. If HUFF removed her as moderator, its a good step. She is a complete hipocrit to advocate the demolition of home's in the Mid-East, and also represent a group called, Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom.

As for Chicago IMC featuring Horowitz with pie on his face, that's called news. Chicago IMC is a new site, & the incident happened in Chicago.

I saw that on story on the Fox News Channel. Does that make them anti-semitic too? HA

[Becky Johnson's Attack Against Indy Media]

http://docs.indymedia.org/view/Local/SantaCruzBJ

SantaCruzBJ

Re: Request to Remove "Becky's Brain" article and Request to Unblock Becky Johnson's IP Address

Ms. Johnson,

Recently, the Santa Cruz Indymedia editorial working group met and discussed the aforementioned items. The group came to a consensus on the following conclusions:

1. Out of concern for the historical record and in light of the fact that the article is no longer prominently displayed on the site, we think that the "Becky's Brain" article needs to remain visible. We therefore decline to give it a "hidden" status. Though we understand that the article is borderline acceptable, when put into the larger context of the editorial standards used at the time it was published, which were more lax, it does not seem to necessitate hiding the article. Furthermore, the article is clearly personal, but it is also obviously satirical, based on direct quotations from Ms. Johnson's previous writings. Because Ms. Johnson is a recognized media personality in the community, she is by law subject to more media scrutiny than the average citizen. Finally, there are extensive comments about the article which would be lost if the article was hidden. One of the commenters is Johnson , who refutes portions of the article she disagreed with. Therefore, we feel that hiding this article would be unnecessary at this time.

2. In regards to re-establishing Ms. Johnson's publishing privileges by unbanning her IP address, we ask that Ms. Johnson abide by the following requests:

A. People may not always like the distinctions that SC-IMC's editorial volunteers draw as to what is appropriate for the site. Nonetheless, we request that Ms. Johnson respect the work and judgment of SC-IMC's editorial volunteers and stop the harassment campaign that she has been engaging in. Ms. Johnson has a history of yelling at volunteers and repetitively calling and emailing ("flooding") indymedia volunteers. This constitutes abusive and stalking behavior and it must end.

B. Ms. Johnson has provided personal information about Santa Cruz independent media activists to groups which have expressly tried to defeat progressive causes and have threatened to harm activists. If Ms. Johnson wishes to publish on the Santa Cruz Indymedia website again, she needs to publicly disassociate herself from such groups, including, but not limited to, Dafka and Discover the Network.

C. Ms. Johnson uses the Homeless United for Friendship and Freedom (HUFF) mailing list and her public access television show, Club Cruz, to disseminate false information about indymedia and indymedia volunteers in an effort to defeat independent media efforts. We request that Ms. Johnson stop using these forums to disseminate false information about indymedia and indymedia volunteers.

** If Ms. Johnson would like to follow through on these requests, she may post an article on Santa Cruz Indymedia, explaining her decision to work in solidarity with indymedia, her decision to break away from Dafka and Discover The Network, and to stop trying to defeat indymedia efforts. After she has done this, her IP address will be reinstated and will remain unbanned providing that she ceases her efforts to thwart independent media efforts.

The Issue of Censorship

Another issue which has been raised by Ms. Johnson is the issue of censorship. Specifically, Ms. Johnson claims that indymedia is guilty of censorship. Santa Cruz Indymedia editorial volunteers have a responsibility to moderate the content of the website. Articles which are found to be in violation of SC-IMC's editorial policy will be marked as "hidden" and moved off the newswire. If SC-IMC editorial volunteers did not moderate the site, based on our editorial policy and ImcNantesPrinciples of Unity adhered to by indymedias worldwide, the site would be effectively useless.

Finally, the definition of "censorship", according to the new Webster's Lexicon Dictionary is "the institution or practice of censoring." When you examine the word "censor," there are two definitions, one for a noun and one for a verb. The definition for a verb is "to examine (letters, literature, etc.) in the capacity of a censor; to delete offensive material from these or ban (a work.)" The definition of the noun form of "censor" is the following: "a person empowered to suppress publications or excise any matter in them thought to be immoral, seditious or otherwise undesirable."

In the aforementioned definitions, indymedia's editorial practices do not amount to "censorship." First and foremost, when you examine the word "censor" and its associated terms, you notice that it is related to an official person who bans material. Indymedia represents nearly the opposite; it is a forum for stories and reports that may get censored in corporate news or other "official" channels. You also must consider the context and power differential. A censor, by dictionary definition, is someone empowered -- usually a government official -- to officially ban material. Volunteers from indymedia don't have the power to ban anything. They may choose to move certain articles to the "hidden" section, which are still viewable but not prominent. Even if an article is "hidden" on the indymedia site, there are still thousands of outlets for publication of articles outside of SC-IMC.

Becky Johnson wants to claim that indymedia is guilty of censorship. It is obvious that indymedia doesn't have the capacity to censor. On the other hand, Ms. Johnson, who cohosts her prime time television show with an individual who claims to be a part of "homeland security," is trying to eliminate Santa Cruz Indymedia's editorial prerogative through a vicious campaign of rhetoric. Looking at the big picture, one is left to wonder who is really guilty of trying to censor others in this situation.

Based on Ms. Johnson's dubious interest in indymedia, she is currently not welcome to attend Santa Cruz Indymedia meetings. As soon as she makes her intentions and reasons for her interest in Indymedia clear, that decision will be reconsidered.

Santa Cruz Indybay proven GUILTY of censorship!

by Bill Levinson Friday, Apr. 14, 2006 at 6:48 PM

For the Record = The Homeless = The Progressive Community = Research Committee wrote,

"Another issue which has been raised by Ms. Johnson is the issue of censorship. Specifically, Ms. Johnson claims that indymedia is guilty of censorship.

Noting that SC-IMC is the same thing as Indybay.org, Indybay.org is lying to the progressive community and to Indymedia itself. It is ON RECORD (and I have posted the proof at other sites as well) as hiding articles IN CLEAR VIOLATION OF ITS OWN POSTED EDITORIAL POLICY.

Note how Indybay.org chose to censor even the Persian Gay & Lesbian Organization (and also gaypeopleschronicle.com) because it did not want to embarrass its friend "Wipe Israel off the map" Ahmadinejad:

http://www.indybay.org/news/2006/03/1809970.php
The following post has status hidden:

Iranian gays fear "pogrom." Ahmadinejad says, "Kill a gay for Allah."

Summary: Iran punishes gays and lesbians by flogging for the first, second, and third "offenses," and with death for the fourth. More information is available from the Persian Gay & Lesbian Organization. http://www.pglo.org/


=====================
http://www.indybay.org/news/2006/03/1809003.php
The following post has status hidden:

Women's rights in the Middle East: femicide, misogyny, and degradation

Summary: The treatment of women in countries under fundamentalist Islamic rule ranges from degrading to life-threatening. While domestic violence is a crime in all civilized countries, it is condoned by Sharia or militant Islamic law. Palestinian culture sanctions the murder of women for "unchastity," which can include being raped, while Iran actually sentenced a young woman to hang for killing her would-be rapist.


http://www.indybay.org/news/2006/03/1808880.php
The following post has status hidden:

The Plight of Gays and Lesbians in the Middle East

Summary: Oppression, physical violence, and even murder of gay people is very common in Middle Eastern countries with violently homophobic cultures. Unfortunately, gay organizations like QUIT (Queers Undermining Israeli "Terrorism") and Boycott World Pride are so eager to attack Israel at any price that they are actually working for the brutalization and oppression of gays, lesbians, and bisexuals.

http://www.indybay.org/news/2006/03/1812248.php
The following post has status hidden:

The Execution of Zahra Kazemi, Canadian Photojournalist

Thematic category: human rights and women's rights. This article describes how Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian photojournalist, was tortured to death by the Iranian regime.

http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/2005/03/31/Dr.Azam050331.html for full article: exerpts appear below.

Canadian tortured for days, says Iranian doctor, reports:
"The massive injuries suffered by Canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi while in Iranian custody were so disturbing to the doctor who examined her that he felt compelled to flee the country to expose what happened."

Azam listed the injuries he discovered on Kazemi:

* A broken nose.
* A large bruise on the right side of her forehead extending to the side of her head.
* A bloody lump on the back of her head.
* Evidence of internal bleeding of the brain.
* A ruptured left ear drum.
* Deep, long scratches on the back of her neck and calves.
* Evidence of broken ribs.
* Bruises on her abdomen and on her knees.
* Evidence of flogging on her back.
* Broken fingers and nails missing.
* A smashed toe.
* Bruised and swollen feet, possibly the result of a flogging.

As a male doctor, he was not allowed to examine the woman's genital area but a female nurse testified to evidence of brutal and violent rape.

=================================

The latter was a fair-use excerpt from a news source without any editorial comment whatsoever but Indybay.org censored it. The only conceivable motive for censoring this in clear violation of Indybay.org's posted editorial policies was to prevent embarrassment of the Iranian regime. In other words, it's all right to torture a female photojournalist to death as long as you are a militant Islamic Middle Eastern country. It's all right for the Palestinian Authority to torture gay people, throw them in raw sewage, or even kill them but anyone who opposes gay marriage on this side of the Atlantic Ocean is a dirty racist imperialist neo-Nazi Zionist homophobe.

It is quite clear where Indybay stands and it has been made clear on publicly-available sites that are not under Indybay's control.

How to kick Becky out of HUFF

by Becky Johnson Saturday, Apr. 15, 2006 at 5:44 AM
Santa Cruz, CA.

Thanks to "For the Record" for your research going back over ten years. since you want this info "For the Record" I thought you might like to know more about it.

I AM the Executive Producer for Club Cruz (not Club Cruise).
I have produced 271 episodes since 1996, and about 10 of them have had Lee Kaplan on as a guest or a co-host.

the show that I left (or was demoted at) was called "Community Perspectives" produced by Charles Reid. I taped 40 episodes with them as a talk show host before I left to produce my own show.

the flap about HUFF was a yahoo groups list which had been set up for us by a Seattle homeless activist. At some point he unilaterally removed me as one of the moderators of the list. Then someone--maybe him, maybe someone else---claimed I had been "kicked out of HUFF" or some other such nonsense.

The problem proved unresolvable, so HUFF activists set up a different list, where I am currently one of the monitors.

Since the SC IMC monitors refused to remove "Becky's Brain" from their site because they declared me "a public figure", I note that their ONE charge that I had revealed the sex of FRSC programmer George Cadman (a woman) which they used to claim I was some kind of spy, is void. Since George ALSO hosts both her radio show AND hosts the TV show "Voices", SHE too is a public figure and hence meets a lower standard for privacy. Revealing that she is a woman and not a man is hardly secret information anyway.

I recently re-read my Answer to A.N.S.W.E.R. and I stand by what I wrote. Even within ANSWER their is a contentious debate over whether to link Palestine to Iraq in protests.
I remain opposed to the war in Iraq.

HUFF still welcomes me as a member.
HUFF is unaware of any Santa Cruz homeless person who is asking for me to resign from HUFF (per our HUFF meeting April 12 2006).

HUFF members say that IF a homeless person complains about my membership, they will schedule it as an agenda item.

Okay HEX, Sheepdog, London Meyer , JA and "For the Record"

GET BUSY!! You need to find just ONE homeless person out of 1500 to 2000 in the City of Santa Cruz who will take your agenda item to the HUFF meeting.

Good luck!

Pit Bulls Attack Resource Center for Nonviolence

by Reality Check Saturday, Apr. 15, 2006 at 9:53 AM

Pit Bulls Attack Resource Center for Nonviolence

The Resource Center for Nonviolence has also been viciously attacked by Becky Johnson and her friends!

1) Homeless people have never ever declared that Becky Johnson represents them, and Becky knows is well aware of this. It was Becky herself who declared that she was an advocate for the homeless.

Daring the homeless to step forward to confront her at Huff, is just another way for Becky to use the homeless population for her own personal gain.

The game that Becky is playing, is that they are damned if they do, and they are damned if they dont.

Either way, Becky's attack against the homeless program continues.

2) Becky Johnson failed to explain why she is attacking a program for the homeless.

3) Becky knows that the homeless population does not offer any support in her attack against the homeless or the Street Spirit homeless program for the poor.

Huff does not have to wait for the homeless to contact them about Becky Johnson's attack against the homeless program. Huff already knows all about the attack thats been taking place and remains silent!

The above PR campaign to distract and diminish the on-going attack against the homeless by Becky Johnson and Bill Levinson, is not credible.

The above gloating taking place by Becky Johnson is not an official announcement by Huff.

The homeless are not the only ones that have been under attack lately from right-wing pit bulls, and one only has to click onto the links below to see how another attack has been taking place against others by Becky Johnson, et al.

Again, there is nothing credible being said by Becky Johnson in the links below, and they are more examples of the attacks and feuds taking place against the community by Becky Johnson and her right-wing friends!

Indybay is indeed guilty of censorship

by John Thielking Saturday, Apr. 15, 2006 at 12:21 PM
pagesincolor@aol.com

I am making an exception to my now usual policy of only posting titles and links on Indymedia sites, since this site seems to be open minded enough to leave Becky's responses up. On Indybay.org however, I will continue to post only titles and links and people can view my entire comments by visiting http://www.pagesincolor.com or http://www.pagesincolor.journalspace.com

I have this policy in place because Indybay has CENSORED my comments repeatedly. Most of the censored comments were on the subject of criticism of the site's censorship of other posters other than myself as well as constructive criticism of other activists (The comment with title: More like a 541 mile march, subject: why don't we get activists together re: HR 4437 AND the anti-war movements at the same protests instead of just singing songs like "Teenage Immigrant Welfare Mothers On Drugs" was CENSORED off of indybay). I suppose the censors at Indybay just have a bit of a thin skin or something, for I can visualize how my post might have offended someone, but that someone would have to be awfully thin skinned, whiny, etc to be offended.


I am not personally afraid of Becky Johnson and I have publicy invited David Horrowitz to smear me on his web site if he so chooses -- I likened myself to being a member of the Borg collective -- you will be absorbed! was my challenge to him. I did notice that the Spanish language newspaper Revolucion has an article attacking David Horrowitz, I assume they are talking about the same DH. They basicly appear to be accusing him of squelching debate in academic circles. I will run the article through freetranslation.com's program and see what more I can turn up.

Becky Johnson is a founding member of http://www.pagesincolor.com in that she is a regular attender of the chat room discussions when Robert Norse's show is on Free Radio and has contributed an article and comment to the website. Does that make pagesincolor.com a rabid pro-Israel site? Hardly. Becky has criticized takingaim.info as being possibly run by an anti-semite, though it is a featured website on pagesincolor, attempting to debunk the Islamic Terrorists are always the bad guy myth. But we still get along in other ways.

I really wish that Street Spirit would not get caught up in the anti-Israel anti-Becky Johnson question. Let her do her homeless advocacy work without mixing it up on the other issues. She does not call in to Robert's show and rant about the views of the rest of the FRSC collective for instance, so why do that in your own way to her?

I have also advised her that I would not support her if she went after the RCNV's non profit status over the SC indymedia censorship issue or other issues. She has agreed that she is not interested in doing anything like that. So when someone who shares her views about Israel attacks Street Spirit's non profit status, that is not her talking. That is just one of her sympathizers.

"I really wish that Street Spirit would not get caught up in the anti-Israel anti-Becky Johnson question. Let her do her homeless advocacy work without mixing it up on the other issues."

Precisely the mature reaction we should be expecting. The only people that suffer from this are the homeless- who have lost a passionate and articulate spokesperson. Stop the bullying and intimidation of Becky Johnson. Leave her alone to do what she does best.

To John Thielking re: Indybay.org

by Bill Levinson Saturday, Apr. 15, 2006 at 3:39 PM

John,

You are 100 percent right about Indybay and it seems that it even censors liberal/progressive material that does not suit its "collective," contrary to its own editorial rules.

Re: "I really wish that Street Spirit would not get caught up in the anti-Israel anti-Becky Johnson question. Let her do her homeless advocacy work without mixing it up on the other issues."

This is what Becky was doing. She was not mixing up her anti-terrorism and pro-Israel advocacy with her Street Spirit work but Street Spirit chose to initiate this conflict by discriminating against her for her non-Street Spirit activities.

As far as I am concerned, AFSC was the enemy long before I ever heard of Becky Johnson, Joseph Anderson, or Street Spirit. Street Spirit's discrimination against Becky, however, brought AFSC back to the top of my attention list. In fact, it looks like Street Spirit contains material (written by people other than Becky) that can and will be used to discredit AFSC at the very least.

In fact, Terry Messman's diatribe on draft resistance-- in an era when we have an all-volunteer Army-- shows just how far off the wall AFSC really is.

By the way, it wasn't Israelis who sent a Quaker back with a bullet in his head and marks from beatings with electrical cords. That was AFSC's insurgent friends in Iraq. I call that an atrocity and a crime against humanity but maybe AFSC and Street Spirit will blame it on Bush and Cheney, or else the "Zionists."

The hi-jacking of the Italian cruise ship the Achille Lauro by "Palestinian terrorists" was later reliably reported by former IDF arms dealer Ari Ben-Menashe in his 1992 book, Profits of War: Inside the Secret U.S.-Israeli Arms Network, to have been ordered and funded by Mossad.

Bill Levinson and Becky Johnson Are Team Players

Bill Levinson and Becky Johnson Are Team Players

FACT CHECKER

Bill Levinson is not sympathetic to Becky Johnson's cause.

Bill Levinson and Becky Johnson are team players in numerous attacks upon progressives!

The facts clearly show that time after time, Bill Levinson and Becky Johnson team up together over and over again to attack progressive movements.

Becky Johnson brought in Bill Levinson when she decided to attack the homeless and the homeless program knowns as Street Spirit, and she orchestrated the attack from it's inception.

Bill Levinson is Becky Johnson's weapon of program destruction in this case.

The facts clearly show that Becky Johnson's right-wing activities force people to keep a distance from her just to keep from getting caught up into her dreadful attacks upon others!

The homeless community did not deserve this attack upon them by Becky Johnson.

Becky Johnson says;
[[[Some anti-semites you may know: Norman Finkelstein,
Ilan Pappe, Edward Said (deceased), Alison Weir, Wendy
Campbell, Joseph Anderson, Scott Kennedy, Dalit Baum,
Noam Chomsky, Barbara Lubin, David Duke and (although I like her
reporting on other issues) Amy Goodman.
Note that Finkelstein, Baum, Chomsky, and Goodman are
Jewish themselves. One can be Jewish AND an
anti-semite.]]] See her posting down below...

No one wants to be called anti-semitic by the right-wing pigs that are attacking progressive movements, and the FACTS below show WHO has been ruthlessly caught up into accusing everyone of being anti-semitic.

Becky Johnson may believe that she has a license to call everyone around her an anti-semitic, but Becky Johnson can never expect others to associate with her while her right-wing activities continue to plague the progressive community.

Becky Johnson's attack upon the homeless , is NOT supported by the homeless community!

REPLY TO UM: "...groups that used to focus on real
antiSemitism are now shooting themselves in the foot
by alienating progressives through the smearing of
non-antiSemitic individuals for purely political
reasons."

BECKY: People who have repeatedly singled out Israel
for criticism while ignoring much more egregious cases
elsewhere, who accept unreliable sources reporting
Israeli atrocities as fact, and who repeatedly fail to
condemn agregious acts committed against Israel are
anti-semites. Merely criticising Israel does not make
one an anti-semite.

"...equating being Jewish to supporting the actions of
Israel, and equating opposition to Israel's actions
with antiSemitism seems seems pretty dangerous."

BECKY: About 20% of the Israeli population are opposed
to their govt. policies. These people are not called
anti-semites.

Much of the new anti-semitism is to blame everything
on "the Zionists" and to claim they are not against
Jews, only Zionists.

The original Zionists were secular, socialistic Jews.

These same people condemn "the settlers" who are all
religious Jews. These people specifically do not
condemn the Arab Israelis who are Muslim.

The common factor is they blame the Jews!!

Substituting "zionist" for "Jew" doesn't automatically
relieve a person of anti-semiticism.
I have been labeled a "zionist" though I am not one.

I may be sympathetic to the goals of Zionism, but that
doesn't make me one!

people who call Israel "an apartheid state" or
"colonial invaders" are anti-semites. Those who call
to "Free Palestine" mean "Destroy Israel". Those who
claim that Jewish residents of the West Bank (Samaria
or Judea) are "illegals" are anti-semites.

Why can't a Jew live on the West bank provided they
have displaced no one?

Some anti-semites you may know: Norman Finkelstein,
Ilan Pappe, Edward Said (deceased), Alison Weir, Wendy
Campbell, Joseph Anderson, Scott Kennedy, Dalit Baum,
Noam Chomsky, Barbara Lubin, David Duke and (although I like her
reporting on other issues) Amy Goodman.
Note that Finkelstein, Baum, Chomsky, and Goodman are
Jewish themselves. One can be Jewish AND an
anti-semite.

All single out Israel for criticism while ignoring
more egregious examples in other cultures/peoples. All
present a biased and unfair portrait of Israel.

In Amy Goodman's case, her grandfather was an orthodox
rabbi, so she obviously has personal issues.

Re: Lee Kaplan
Neither Kaplan nor Dafka has "threatened" any peace
activists anywhere. to say so is libel.

Blaming everything bad that happens to you on Becky Johnson and DAFKA just doesn't cut it. Sure there are mean people in the world, and some of them even disrupt my life too. But I don't think their names are Becky Johnson and Lee Kaplan or the other guy, Levinson. Think about it. Do you really think that a computer hacker who could crack IMC servers would be dumb enough to re-use an old e-mail address? Get real. That's not Lee Kaplan. I'm also not aware of Becky Johnson helping Robert Norse out whenever he had a computer glitch. He always turned to me for help, dumb as I am with computers. And just because people share the same view on an internet chat board doesn't make them associates or co-conspirators, though Becky does admit to associating with Lee Kaplan. She also admits that she doesn't share his views on tactics a significant portion of the time. As long as the discussions don't evolve into how to destroy one organization or the other, I say let them argue all they want. Disrupting a Code Pink meeting is unacceptable, but it doesn't happen all the time so it must not be too popular or successful. If the students don't want to associate with DAFKA anymore and so the organization can't meet its membership requirements, too bad. Organize off campus, or can't Lee Kaplan's deep pockets afford that?

Code Pink Meeting

by Bill Levinson Saturday, Apr. 15, 2006 at 7:52 PM

"Disrupting a Code Pink meeting is unacceptable, but it doesn't happen all the time so it must not be too popular or successful."

"Disruption," according to the International Solidarity Movement and its fellow travelers like Lubin's Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) includes handing out factual information about the organization.

MECA, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, transfers money to the International Solidarity Movement for non-exempt purposes like sending activists to the Middle East. (This is according to the ISM's own Web site, not according to Kaplan, Dafka, and so on.)

MECA is also a very inefficient charity in comparison with its peers. A substantial amount of money goes into salaries and administrative costs, which leaves a lot less for any children in the Middle East. Some money apparently goes into attempting to influence legislation and public opinion on legislative matters even though MECA does not report these expenditures to the IRS.

http://www.israpundit.com/archives/2006/02/another_palesti.php for more information about Barbara Lubin's organization.

"It was also "problems" with the use of 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money that broke the Million Mom March's back in 2000 so it is of the utmost importance that Civilization's defenders press this kind of attack against ISM/PSM's funding network as extensively as possible. They'll have a lot of trouble flying their guests and speakers to Georgetown University, and their activists to Israel or anywhere else, when their tax-exempt money is cut off."

Someone mentioned the Resource Center for Nonviolence:
http://www.rcnv.org/. They ARE a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt project of the Eschaton Foundation.

Hmmm, to their credit, they actually condemn Palestinian terrorism, which is a lot more than one sees from the Presbyterian Church USA and anti-American Fiends for Saddam Committee. Although they link to Islamofascist dupes and stooges like Yesh Gvul and Tikkun.org, if they actually condemn Palestinian violence they might at least be trying to be even-handed.

Becky Johnoson's Attack On The Homeless

by Truth Seeker Saturday, Apr. 15, 2006 at 10:20 PM

Becky Johnson's Attack On The Homeless

Many of us are deeply saddened to see that Becky's attacks against others, have finally led to the recent attack against the homeless and Street Spirit.

Perhaps Bill Levinson or John Thielking would be kind enough to tell the readers how much Becky Johnson was paid to pound the final nails into the coffin of the child below, while her family was grieving their loss in Palestine?

It's not easy to understand why Becky would attack the homeless lately, but it is even harder to understand why she would attack the grieving family of a child that died such a horrible death?

How can Becky justify her actions against others?

Can anyone tell us how much Becky received for the articles she wrote below?

Becky Johnson Defends The Murder Of A Child:

[Becky Johnson Defends Horrific Killing Of 13 Year Old By IDF]
http://backspin.typepad.com/backspin/2005/01/guardians_of_br.html
From Becky Johnson:
[Part 1]
Regarding the death of 13 year old Iman al-Hams.
She was hardly "walking to school" when she has shot and killed.
She left her home and veered off course a distance of 2 and a half times the distance from her home to her school.
Her destination was the Girit outpost where IDF soldiers were stationed. This area was clearly marked off-limits to civilians and considered a war zone.
The IDF did not see her as soon as they might have. IDF policy in this case, would be to fire warning shots, and if that didn't work, to fire at the intruder, trying to inflict a non-lethal injury. Soldiers are instructed to aim at an arm or leg at a distance of about 300 meters.
By the time they saw her, they had no time to fire warning shots. She was walking directly at them, as close as 30 yds. speaking angrily at them in Arabic (which they didn't understand) and she threw her backpack at them.
She was shot then. There WAS discussion of how old she was. The soldiers were sickened at the idea of shooting a child, both before and after the shooting. One of the soldiers, perhaps to emphasize the point that even a child can pose a risk (as a suicide bomber) fired at her already lifeless body.
Investigators later were unable to determine which shot killed her.
I think its clear from her behavior that she was put up to this, recruited as a child shehada. The cynical adults who undoubtedly recruited her KNEW she was unarmed, and they could make PR hay off her death. THEY are the ones responsible for her death. The IDF had little choice.
The only way it could have gone better for the IDF, is if they had seen her soon enough to wound her from a safe distance.
It is NOT policy for IDF soldiers to kill civilians or children. IDF soldiers on patrol are given a set number of bullets and these are counted when they return. They must account for every bullet they fire.
If an IDF soldier shoots indiscriminately into a window, into a crowd, into a school, or at children walking to school, then how come only 2.8% of the dead are female? Wouldn't indiscriminate fire reign down more evenly on women as well as men?

[Becky Johnson Defends Horrific Killing Of 13 Year Old By IDF]
From Becky Johnson:
[Part 2]
"As to discussion of her age, Iman was noticeably small for her age and any thought that she could pose a risk was tenuous at the least."
BECKY: I too have my doubts about the IDF report. Parts of it do not jive. If they had seen her at 300 meters, and she continued to approach their guardtower, why didn't they wound her per IDF policy?
The explanation, deduced from the audio tape, the investigation, and media reports, appears to be (and this is my idea alone) that she was much much closer than 300 meters when she was first noticed.
Wasn't her body found about 30 meters from the guardpost? And contrary to your claim that she was too small to pose a risk, her backpack could easily have contained explosives. Her actions (yelling angrily and throwing her backpack at them ---described by the Leftist spin-meisters as "dropping her backpack") were also suspicous. The IDF soldiers did not wound her, but killed her in a hail of bullets.
On the tape the IDF commander shouts that he doesn't care if she was three years old---meaning, that if any civilian purposely veers out of their way, approaches a closed military zone (meaning no civilians were allowed there) with a backpack, yelling angrily and approaching the very place where the soldiers were quartered, should be shot. Also on the tape is horrified discussion of her perceived age "she looks like she's 10 years old!"
The IDF commander was cleared because Iman al-Hams behavior clearly presented a possible deadly threat to which they could reasonably have used deadly force to protect themselves from.
Her backpack contained no explosives, but the IDF soldiers could not have been expected to know that at the time.
So who is at fault? I think the blame clearly lies with those unknown parties who recruited her to be a shehada.

Becky did not "defend" this action. Becky analysized it, as any journalist would. Her conclusion, the death , while tragic, was not "murder" is the same conclusion any rational person would have come up with. Yet for this she is condemned. Why?

poor " little" Becky

by Yah Sunday, Apr. 16, 2006 at 5:46 AM

Shooting a child 'who could have been' a threat in her occupied homeland.
Normally the IDF just aims for the child's eyes to cause permanent brain damage, thus avoiding the death toll. Which is far higher on the side of the Palestinians.

Israel must disarm and provide compensation and return to the refugees it produced during this 60 plus occupational terror.

Or be sanctioned and shunned like the international criminal it has made itself to be.
Before it begins WW4 with its nuclear arsenal.

Truth Seeker: paid by Saudis?

by Bill Levinson Sunday, Apr. 16, 2006 at 6:06 AM

Truth Seeker = The Homeless = Research Committee = Progressive Community = The Moderator wrote,

"It's not easy to understand why Becky would attack the homeless lately, but it is even harder to understand why she would attack the grieving family of a child that died such a horrible death?

...Can anyone tell us how much Becky received for the articles she wrote below?"

I don't think any of the publications are paying markets but I would like you to tell us how much Al-Waleed bin Talal (Georgetown University's and Harvard University's new sugar daddy) or some other Middle Easterner is paying you to attack Becky.

A Harvard professor was the source of a recent David DuKKKe-approved report on the "Israel Lobby," by the way. Now there is no evidence that this is associated with bin Talal but the fact does stand that bin-Talal gave Harvard $20 million for an Islamic studies center or something like that, and it's reasonable to assume that he wants something in return.

I noticed, by the way, that the International Solidarity Movement's Huwaida Arraf and Adam Shapiro never lack for money to fly around the United States to give anti-Israel speeches. I wonder where this money is coming from. Now tell us, which hostile foreign country is paying you to be its mouthpiece???

Re: "Shooting a child 'who could have been' a threat in her occupied homeland."

The IDF soldier shot a 13 year-old with a backpack who entered a security area where she was not supposed to be. Palestinians with bulky overcoats and jackets, as well as suspicious-looking packages, have a nasty habit of exploding and spraying bystanders with poison-tipped nails. Her actions and demeanor suggested that she posed a deadly threat to the soldier and/or people in the vicinity so he pulled the trigger.

The solider was obviously in "reasonable fear" (the standard for justifiable homicide) for his life and/or the lives of people for whom he was responsible so his action was 100 percent justified.

Birth rates in Palestinian populations have been over-estimated

by Becky Johnson Sunday, Apr. 16, 2006 at 6:17 PM
Santa Cruz, CA.

"Normally the IDF just aims for the child's eyes to cause permanent brain damage, thus avoiding the death toll. "

BECKY: This is total lie.

Also: the birthrate of the Palestinians has been grossly overstated (and by Levinson grossly stated).

While up until about a year ago, most believed that the Palestinian birth rate was one of the highest in the world.
But, as so many reports from the PA turn out, it was not exactly accurate.

The PA reported a birthrate of 4.9% one of the highest in the world. But an excellent demographic study done by an American Jewish team, has seriously drawn that estimate into question.

Statistics provided by the PA ministry of Health show only a 3.6% birth rate, so the reproductive capacity of Palestinian females has been over-stated.

by Research drone Sunday, Apr. 16, 2006 at 7:12 PM


Like this:
http://compuserb.com/israel/
More than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in the past seventeen months, 250 of them children of all ages. 20,000 have been wounded, many maimed for life, thousands of them also children. Teen-age boys are shot in the eyes. IDF soldiers shoot pregnant women dead or leave them dying in childbirth at military check-points. A UN school for blind children, the only such establishment, was bombed. Medical personnel and ambulances are equally targeted.
or this
http://www.geocities.com/alabasters_archive/children_of_palestine.html
Lulu is eight years old. A rubber bullet hit her in the brain. She is now a pretty vegetable whose family hug and kiss her, hoping in vain for a reaction. Apart from rubber and plastic bullets "like marble," the Israelis also have a stone-throwing machine that hurls 600 stones a minute. "It's our own intifada on wheels," said an officer.

So there are no Kassem rocket attacks?

by Becky Johnson Sunday, Apr. 16, 2006 at 9:21 PM
Santa Cruz, CA.

So every bullet comes from the IDF?
And there are no armed Palestinian groups calling for Jihad on every streetcorner?
And no Palestinian child ever dies from a bullet shot in the air in celebration or in the crossfire from these armed groups?
And no woman beaten by her husband ever claims her bruises came from a beating by settlers?
And none of the Palestinian deaths on Alison Weir's list are of suicide bombers?
And no Israeli children are ever killed or maimed?
And no Jewish parents cry in grief at their lost children?
And the Resource Center for Nonviolence never puts a fake victim of Jewish violence on a road tour preaching hatred against Israel?

Every child killed carrying a bomb is Palestinian.
Imams in mosques incite hatred of the Jews and Israel every Friday night in rants broadcast on PA tv.
Palestinian children are encouraged to grow up to be suicide bombers.

But you blame Israel and the Jews for all this.
And you are mum to the treatment of gays, Christians,
and women in the PA and filled with invective against the Jews and Israel.

You are sick.

Becky Johnson The Homeless Advocate Speaks?

by Intelligent Observer Monday, Apr. 17, 2006 at 2:15 AM

Becky Johnson The Homeless Advocate Speaks?

This has been the voice of a homeless advocate?

Are we still REALLY supposed to believe that Becky Johnson is the voice for the homeless, or is someone trying to pull a fast one on the readers?

Is Becky Johnson prepared to replace the cash for the homeless population in Berkeley that would lose their income, if her attack against Street Spirit ends up shutting the paper down?

And what about the murder of that child Becky was involved in, that she so coldy explained away as just another case of justifiable MURDER in the world of homicidal maniacs?

She never explained what it was that she received from her involvement in such a morbid affair!

Whats wrong with this picture?

Since when did the voice of the homeless in Santa Cruz, become the mouth piece for armed death squads and the Grim Reaper?

Is this the best that Santa Cruz can offer in regards to homeless advocates?

Will Becky Johnson ever explain to the homeless population why it was SHE who ended up defending the grisly murder of an innocent 13 year old child that was murdered by professional killers?

Is this what a homeless advocate in Santa Cruz should be doing?

Has Becky's involvement in the grisly murder of that child been more than just a morbid sense of bravado or self gratification, while she explains to the homeless that she is actually an advocate for them, and not the IDF?

When can we expect Becky Johnson to tell the homeless population how much she was paid to be a shill for the Grim Reaper in the case of the dead 13 year old child?

Are the readers asking too much for Becky Johnson to be accountable for her actions?

Whats going on here?

They have nothing else to hide behind.

"This is sick" = "The Homeless" = "Research Committee" wrote

"Oh yes, and as to gays, Christians and women, we don't see Palestinians using artillery, tanks, and jet fighters attacking whole neighborhoods to kill a few suspected leaders of this sector of the population."

They don't have to; they just have the SS, Gestapo, KGB, or the Palestinian equivalent drag them away to a jail somewhere, give them the steel cored rubber hose treatment, throw them in raw sewage, or just shoot them in the head.

Google for "Palestinian" and "gay" to see how gay people are treated by the heroic and oppressed Palestinians. Google on "Palestinian" and "honor killing" to see how these purehearted noble savages treat their own women.

I'll have to look at Street Spirit some more; maybe some of the content can be used to help take down the anti-American Frauds for Saddam Committee by exposing it as a propaganda organ for Islamofascists as opposed to a bona fide religious and charitable organization. The AFSC is a problem that has to be solved, and it would be really nice if Terry Messman sold me some shovels in addition to the ones AFSC has already provided at afsc.org.

The Noble Palestinians

The Noble Palestinia...

Here are some pictures of the handiwork of the noble, downtrodden, oppressed Palestinians at its finest. Yes, if a 13-year-old Palestinian was coming at me with a backpack in an area where she was not supposed to be, refused orders to stop, and then began screaming at me in Arabic, I also would shoot her dead because I don't want to end up like this:

Who are the homicidal maniacs?

by Becky Johnson Monday, Apr. 17, 2006 at 7:08 AM
Santa Cruz, CA.

REPLY TO NOT SO INTELLIGENT OBSERVER:

"the world of homicidal maniacs? "

BECKY: http://www.merip.org/mer/mer206/ruggi.htm

"An unofficial report given to the Palestinian Women's Working Society stated that "recently" 40 women have been killed for honor in Gaza."

And this: Gush Etzion junction on Sunday, Oct.16, 2005
2 unarmed women: Kinneret Mandel 23 years old and Matat Adler-Rosenfeld killed less than three months after her wedding, organized against the Gaza pull-out.

AND THIS: "Palestinian gunmen killed three Israelis and wounded five in drive-by attacks. Matat Rosenfeld Adler, 21, and her cousin Kineret Mandel, 23, were among the three victims of a terrorist attack at the hitchhiking post at the Gush Etzion junction on Sunday. "

AND THIS: http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/meast/05/02/gaza.shooting/index.html

"beginning with the killing of a pregnant Israeli woman and her four children by terrorists near a Gaza settlement."

BECKY: Then there was the murder of two boys who the Palestinians spent all night in a cave with their bodies cutting off souvenirs and spreading blood all over the ceiling of the cave.

http://www.kobymandell.org/klife.htm

So if the IDF kills a 13 yr old girl who appears to be throwing a bomb at them, and they agonize over it even as it is occurring---and are sickened afterwards because she was so young...

How do you compare that to the case of 13 yr old Koby Mandell who was purposely murdered as he went for a walk with his best friend, by being pummeled to death with rocks the size of bowling balls, and for the next 12 hours, the murderers hung out with the bodies spreading their blood on the walls and ceiling of a cave?

The boys were killed just because they were Jewish.
Iman al-Hams was killed because she appeared to be attacking IDF soldiers.

You blame Israel and ignore or excuse Palestinian violence.
So --Not-so intelligent---does motive play into your judgement at all??

Screw Zionists wrote, ""drag them away to a jail somewhere, give them the steel cored rubber hose treatment, throw them in raw sewage, or just shoot them in the head. "

Yes but what about the Palestinians? We already know about Israeli methods."

I am talking about Palestinian methods and, since you seem to insist on details,

http://www.opinionjournal.com/best/?id=110001674

" Palestinian Arabs say they've been tortured in prison--by other fellow Palestinian Arabs. Arutz Sheva reports. The accused "collaborators," freed by Israeli soldiers, "describe being hung upside down for days, having cigarettes extinguished on their bodies, and other such treatment. Some of the prisoners said that they were beaten unconscious and slashed with knives and shards of glass, while other said they were forced to sit in raw sewage for days." Arab "human rights" groups are silent."

http://www.mikesilverman.com/2002_08_11_log_archive.html

Gay and Palestinian

"A must-read piece on Tayseer (not his real name), a gay Palestinian, and the horrible treatment he has received at the hands of his own people for his sexual orientation. This is a different guy then the one I wrote about last month, but the overall pattern in the same: young Palestinian man is gay; family and neighbors find out, brutally abuse him. In the case of Tayseer, he also gets punished for being gay by the duly constituted offices of the Palestinian Authority, who force Tayseer to be submerged in a pit of raw sewage and then throw him into solitary confinement."

When you turn down a peace treaty and instead choose war.....

by Becky Johnson Monday, Apr. 17, 2006 at 8:33 AM
Santa Cruz, CA.

Reply to Screw: Your photo of dead bodies is disturbing but doesn't advance our knowledge at all. Who are these dead people? How were they killed? Who killed them? What were the circumstances? What preceeded the killings?

You show dead bodies and expect us to ASSUME they were murdered by the IDF. No such conclusion can be drawn without LOTS more information.

Arafat was offered 100% of the West Bank in 2000 and he turned it down and launched his war instead. If the Palestinians are suffering, its because THEIR LEADERS chose war instead of peace.

The Palestinians could have been living in peace and prosperity right now, but they insist on killing Jews and destroying Israel for Allah.

When you live in a war zone, innnocent people get shot in the crossfire. Israel wants peace. the Palestinians, by electing Hamas, have shown they only want more war.

More facts on the Rafah deaths

by Becky Johnson Monday, Apr. 17, 2006 at 9:21 AM
Santa Cruz, CA.

IDF press release on Rafah incident May 19, 2004

SEE IT IN ITS ENTIRETY AT: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Government/Communiques/2004/Rafah+Incident+19-May-2004.htm

"It should be mentioned that the scene of the incident is an area of combat and an area of frequent exchanges of fire. The road has been rigged with explosive charges planted by the Palestinians. The IDF has not yet cleared the road of these explosives.

At this stage it is difficult to determine the cause of the civilian casualties. The incident is being investigated thoroughly at this time.

The IDF has approached the Palestinians and offered medical assistance, including the evacuation of the casualties to Israeli hospitals."

BECKY: I remember writing about this incident when it occurred. there was a huge demonstration in Rafah and a breakaway march of about 100 people broke off and walked directly into a close military area.

The IDF shot a few warning shots which most likely detonated bombs buried in the roads by Palestinian terrorists. Several children were at the front of the breakaway march.

while its possible the demonstraters were hit by a richocheting tank missile, its equally possible they were killed by a Palestinian road bomb.

In any case, organizers of the march/demo should NOT have allowed children to march directly into harms way.

Palestine = Lord of the Flies starring adults instead of kids

Palestine = Lord of ...
stoning.jpg, image/jpeg, 450x280

I don't know that "Screw Zionists'" pictures speak for themselves. Some of the Palestinians might have been killed by other Palestinians, and those killed by the IDF might have died because terrorists used them as human shield. (By the way, there are no IDF personnel in the picture of a Middle Eastern woman about to be stoned to death by the noble proletarian oppressed Middle Easterners but I digress.) As shown here, a terrorist fires his weapon from behind terrified Palestinian children: http://www.me-rc.info/children/6.jpg

Here, Palestinians hold up the liver and intestines of a murder victim: http://www.me-rc.info/children/9.jpg

Palestinian children (this one is only ten) are raised as live ammunition.
http://www.me-rc.info/children/27.jpg

A Palestinian suicide bomber did this to innocent people:
http://www.me-rc.info/children/18.jpg

Finally, as Becky pointed out, the Palestinians chose this situation by choosing war over being given almost everything they demanded.

Santa Cruz Spy, Promotes Death

by Birds Eye View Monday, Apr. 17, 2006 at 12:36 PM

Santa Cruz Spy Promotes Death!

Becky Johnson says;

"When you live in a war zone, innnocent people get shot in the crossfire."

Well duh.....

It's the homeless that have been tossed into the crossfire in the on-going WAR happening between Becky Johnson (Zionists,) and Joseph Anderson (anti-Zionists).

Bill Levinson and Becky Johnson are not concerned about the homeless as they fire back at the anti-Zionists with their declarations of madness!

Neither faction cares about the homeless in their bid to get one up on the other, and Becky is responsible for this sorry state of affairs!

To say the least, Becky Johnson is not fit to be an advocate for the homeless as she crushes them underfoot in her struggle to defend the mass murder of the Palestinian people!

Does your city outlaw Sleeping?

by Becky Johnson Monday, Apr. 17, 2006 at 8:53 PM
Santa Cruz, CA.

Homeless people have a lot more important things on their minds to worry about other than any quibbles about backroom snipes against the corporaate sponsors of a monthly homeless magazine.

They need to have a safe, dry, legal place to sleep and don't need cops giving them expensive citations they can't pay for the "crime" of sleeping or covering up with a blanket.

Armories are closing up and down the state, and yet the rains have not stopped. We need to open some homeless campgrounds and a homeless carpark yesterday before anyone else succumbs to the cold, the damp, or the indifference.

JA and Street Spirit started it; don't blame Becky

by Bill Levinson Tuesday, Apr. 18, 2006 at 6:56 AM

"It's the homeless that have been tossed into the crossfire in the on-going WAR happening between Becky Johnson (Zionists,) and Joseph Anderson (anti-Zionists)."

Joseph Anderson started the "war" and Street Spirit apparently took his side. When you take sides in a war, you can get hurt. (In this case I am talking credibility damage as opposed to physical harm.) Most people know this.

If this sorry controversy had never happened, Street Spirit would never have come to my attention. As it is, though, I went through the publication to find things to use against AFSC's credibility and I found plenty.

On another note, Indybay.org just sold me more shovels with which to bury its credibility as shown here: http://www.indybay.org/news/2006/04/1815821.php. Needless to say, I posted this to "right-wing fascist imperialist pig" media outlets the instant Indybay.org changed its status to hidden. This is about the seventh or eighth time; Indybay.org doesn't seem to have enough brains to run a self-respecting turnip because they are actually helping me destroy their credibility.

Insanity = doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Don't Rush to Judgement!!

by Becky Johnson Wednesday, Apr. 19, 2006 at 12:19 PM
Santa Cruz, CA.

Reply to Screw Zionists:

I looked in vain for documentation of the event noted in the disturbing photo you posted of a bloody classroom in Rafah. Two young male students were seriously injured, but thankfully, no one was killed.

This was the only reference I found:

"Early on Tuesday, the 1st of June, according to Palestinian sources and the UN agency for Palestinian refugee, 10-year-old boys, Mohammed Hammad and Hisham al Habil have been seriously injured by Israeli gunfire while studying at a UN school in the Rafah camp. The children have been hit with a bullet during an Arabic language class at Al – Ummeria elementary school. The Israeli bullets passed through the classroom window hitting Mohammed to the neck and Hisham to the head.

It was not an isolated episode, as the school has been targeted by Israeli forces many times in the recent past, strongly jeopardizing students’ lives.

Following the firing, the entire school personnel, backed by students’ families, turned out in the street demonstrating against Israeli attacks."

BECKY: The problem is I was unable to find ANY confirmation that this happened from any other source.
There is no info from the IDF, the MFA, or mainstream media sources, or independent journalists, or the US State Dept. The only source I found was the link you provided with the photo. Therefore readers should withhold judgement here until more information from mulitple factions is known.

Indybay.org
by Schtarker Yid Tuesday, Apr. 18, 2006 at 4:30 PM

In my experience, Indybay.org is a far right, anti-peace site that cloaks its astoundly racist and anti-semitic nonsense in the rhetoric of Progressives. All comments that don't tow the party line are instantly deleted and repeated "thought criminals" are auto-blocked. It seems that they don't even pretend to be "pro-Palestinians" just simply "anti-all things Jewish." Of late its been attracting standard White Supremicists who feel at home there among the other anti-semites.
=====================

The last sentence (regarding white supremacists) induced me to search Indybay.org for the N word, which I found in a vicious racist tirade by someone identifying himself as "Nordic Vengeance." The Indybay "collective," which was so diligent at hiding my articles on abuses of women, religious minorities, and gay people by Islamofascists, did not hide a comment that used the N word several times to refer not only to Black people but also to Asians, Hispanics, and Arabs.

Even better, the thread included commentary from an apparent Indybay.org moderator that shows that INDYBAY IS LYING TO ITS WRITERS AND COMMENTATORS ABOUT NOT LOGGING IP ADDRESSES. The moderator in question cited an IP address to show that one person had posted "right-wing pro-Israel propaganda" under two different identities. (Pro-Israel propaganda is bad but using the N word in addition to ethnic slurs for Jews is apparently OK.)

The bottom line is, however, that the best way to destroy an organization legally and nonviolently is to show its constituents that it has lied to them. This played a major role in destroying the Million Mom March in 2000 and there is now similar evidence against Indybay.org.

To recap, here is how we got here:

(1) Joseph Anderson attacked Becky Johnson
(2) Street Spirit took JA's side
(3) I took Becky's side
(4) "Research Committee" attacked Becky and me along with others, thus drawing my attention to this thread.
(5) This thread led to Schtarker Yid posting information that could well be instrumental in the total destruction of Indybay.org's credibility in the progressive community-- and rightly so. Krushchev was right about selling the shovels...

War can lead to all kinds of unexpected places where one might not want to go, and so can its civilian equivalent (politics). Joseph Anderson opened Pandora's box and the end of Indybay.org's credibility might well be what he let out. Street Spirit can take a bow here as well because, had it not taken JA's side, this thread would probably not have been posted and Schtarker Yid's information would not have come to my attention.

Asking Schtarker Yid and/or Gehrig for help against autoblocking

by unjustly autoblocked at Indybay Thursday, Apr. 20, 2006 at 4:15 AM

Schtarker Yid once mentioned on UC-IMC that it's rather easy to get oneself unblocked for certain periods of time. I get autoblocked for weeks on end as is currently, and am wondering if any of you can help me to get through the blockage.

Firstly, some necessary technical details: so far I've only used my IP's dialer to get on the WWW. Now we can proceed.
My IP's tech support gave me 2 pointers: a technically simple autoblock can be overcome by disconnecting and then reconnecting, both through the dialer. Or, Indybay may be utilizing clever software to impose the autoblock, which indeed is the case.

So, how can I outsmart the infantile free speech enemies at Indybay? I'll gladly provide further technical details as needed, if needed.

Sorry, "Excellent," I'm on an obsolete dial-up connection and I can see your childish tirade just fine. The one good thing about dial-up is that you get assigned a new IP address every time you log on.

I'm sure Indybay.org has blocked several of my "addresses" only to have my postings continue to appear, whereupon they hide them and then get their backsides handed to them at Israpundit as a result. (They really aren't very bright, are they?)

In fact, one of their so-called moderators was stupid enough to brag, in an unrelated thread, that he knew who someone was from their IP address, thus showing the world that Indybay.org was lying about its privacy policy.

I now have some respect for la.indymedia.org, by the way. Although I hardly agree with everything they say, and they probably don't agree with a lot of what I say, they don't seem to do much censorship. Quite frankly, I envision la.indymedia.org taking over indybay.org's readers and contributors once indybay.org goes down the drain.

I've noticed "nessie" has reared his ugly head here

by Thanks for the help, Tia Thursday, Apr. 20, 2006 at 9:24 AM

You know, a few days ago I rubbed nessie's helplessness and powerlessness at being repeatedly deleted on Indymedia Watcher's blog in his face in his own sandbox.

One post there dealt with both SF "IMCs" and once "nessie" somehow got wind of the article, he posted one of his standard issue flamebait crapola screeds positing that Zionism is equal to Nazism, among other things. So the blogger removed that and all his subsequent comments but has left up mine and Gehrig's two comments wherein he went open season on "nessie", no punches pulled. You should have seen how "nessie" was hitting the roof when I posted all that stuff in his sandbox. Needless to say he deleted, not hid, all of it, so you can't trace it.
