Paul LaRudee is the head of Norcal ISM and we at Stop the ISM are proud to say that we got him arrested and deported from Israel in June 2005 as he tried entering the country under the false identity of Paul Wilder.
Paul spent some time in detention in Israel when he refused deportation but even his communist lawyer, paid by EU funding, couldn't get him into Israel, so he went to Lebanon and acted as a human shield for the Hizballah during the war there. You remember Hizballah. They murdered 241 US marines in 1983 in Lebanon. Paul is their buddy and supports them.
Paul is now working to form a flotilla of other whackos and perverts from the ISM to sail from Cypress to the Gaza Strip to break the Israeli naval blockade and facilitate the smuggling of weapons for Hamas.
Paul's main claim to fame was his boasting about how he spent the night sleeping in the bed of a suicide bomber in the house where the serial killer planned his attack on Israelis.
Paul lives in an expensive home in the Bay Area where he has all kinds of money for the ISM sent to him personally. He says he is just a simple piano tuner and travels the world tuning pianos. He travels the world all right, but as a human shield for Arab terrorists.
Paul will tell you he's for peace, but doesn't object to "armed resistance as mandated by international law." In other words, he's full of crap.
We have one goal above all here at Stop the ISM: To see Paul LaRudee go to prison for aiding overseas terrorist groups. He said we could not keep him out of Israel and we did. Rest assured, were going to put him in prison one day also. By the way, he committed a violation of federal law for trying to change his identity to sneak into Israel last time. 18 USC 2339 a and b of the Patriot Act makes it illegal to train people like in the ISM to go overseas and aid terrorist groups. Paul's fellow leaders in the ISM like Huwaida Arraf and Lisa Nessan have admitted the ISM works in cooperation as human shields for Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the PFLP, and Paul has led ISM orientation and training sessions in the Bay Area. The Diplomatic Security Service (the law enforcement arm of the US State Deparmtent) knows all about Paul but has failed to act. Nevertheless, we at Stop the ISM are certain we will eventually get them to follow the law and prosecute Paul.
Just as with his deportation from Israel, it's only a matter of time.
