Paul LaRudee of Norcal ISM, deported from Israel due to our efforts in 2006 is now trying to get a flotilla together of as many ISM creeps as possible in order to enter Gaza by sea against the Israeli Navy in order to open up the shipping lanes for the importation of more weapons to kill Israelis by Hamas. The scheduled date for setting sail is August 5th from Cyprus.
Riad Hamad, in the story below, the head of Palestine Childrens Welfare Fund was found murdered in Texas on July 14th. Hamad, who appointed LaRudee his fundraising chairman for this flotilla as probably killed by Hamas for attracting to much attention for the FBI over money laundering for Hamas. LaRudee, whose pathology against Israel is a complete mental illness, has been running around like a brass monkey promoting this flotilla. It is up to all Americans, Israelis and people for democratic free societies worldwide to stop LaRudee and his terrorist support gang that is really run by the Palestinian Arabs.
These are some of the ISM creeps who plan to be on this journey:
Huwaida Arraf, Patrick Connors, Greta Berlin, Adam Shapiro, Dorothy Naor, Brian Malovany, Lisa Nessan, Hedy Epstein, among other professional ISM activists. Many of these have been deported already from Israel.
Of course, the simplest and best solution would be for one missile to sink this ship and get rid of the ISM all together, but we realize thats not going to happen. So we are asking all of those concerned to contact the Embassy of Cypress in Washington, D.C. and New York City and demand that this ship not be allowed to use Cypriot ports to make this jounrney to aid Hamas. At the same time, call the Diplomatic Security Service division of the US State Department and tell them about this and demand the US passports of participants also be held back from travel to Cyprus or Egypt because this group aims to aid Hamas. Likewise, contact your congresspeople and demand that they do something to prevent this "voyage" from occuring.
The question also arises where the money came from for this event. Paul LaRudee has claimed he needed $300,000 to charter a boat. Last time he spoke about it he claimed to raise only $50,000. Where is the extra $250,000 coming from? Money was first to be sent to Riad Hamad's Palestine Children's Welfare Fund then later everything was sent to Paul LaRudee's home address in El Cerrito, California. The IRS in all its wisdom gave non-profit status to NorCal ISM last December without realizing the money was going for such a support- for -Hamas event. IN turn, readers here are urged to write the IRS criminal investigations unit and file a complaint for charities fraud, as well as the California Attorney Generals Office as well for the same purpose.
