International Solidarity Movement should itself be considered a Terrorist Organization

". . . Despite its peaceful image, the ISM has crossed the line from protest to an alliance with hate."

David Bedein, bureau chief of the Israel Resource News Agency in Jerusalem, has written a scathing indictment of the ISM in today's JPost.

"At a May 6 press conference I asked ISM spokesman Raphael Cohen how his group defines the "occupation." His definition? "The Zionist presence in Palestine" that is, in all of the country including Israel within its pre-1967 borders. Cohen went on to say that the ISM view of peace would be a "one-state solution," or no Israel at all . . . "
