    Danish ISM Activist Used Fake Name to Enter Israel!

    Ted Belman. I see events like this one as an opportunity. With the western world paying close attention to the Eisner story, it is imperative on us to capitalize on that attention. This is our opportunity to explain to the world what ISM is all about, or about European support for anarchists and so on.

    The anarchist who scored a coup and may have ended the army career of a brilliant and dedicated officer was not whom he said he was.

    By Lee Kaplan, Head of Stop the ISM, INN

    Something didn’t fit.

    Every time I heard or read the name of the Danish activist struck by Lieutenant Colonel Eisner it didn’t ring true. He identified himself at Andreas Ayas, sometimes spelled Ias.

    But Ayas is a Muslim Arab name, not a Scandinavian one.

    When I dyed my skin, hair and eyebrows to go undercover as a Pakistani at an ISM training event in San Francisco in 2004, I listened as I was instructed how to harass the IDF as an ISM volunteer.

    Of the ten ISM volunteers I went through training with that day, all were arrested and deported on arrival in Israel.

    The Foreign Ministry didn’t want to see my report on the training at all and I had to get it to the Shin Bet via other means.

    The lead trainer, Jamie Spector, then tried to get access to Israel via the Supreme Court demanding to be allowed to enter the same country she wanted destroyed for the Arabs because she was of Jewish descent. She failed and was deported and is still an anti-Israel activist in San Francisco.

    I was also told by Spector during training, that if I was caught and deported, I could easily get a new passport and return yet again to make trouble.

    Israel stamps the passports of ISM activists who are deported, so they are banned from the country for ten years. Despite the strict passport laws in the US against passport fraud that mete out a fifteen year sentence for such actions, the US State Department almost never enforces the law against ISM agitators.

    The exception was a Richard Davis Hupper, another ISM volunteer who was convicted of passport fraud, but only to pressure him because he was also convicted of providing $20,000 to Hamas, still a federally designated terrorist group in the US.

    Hupper was recently released from prison. Hupper was an unemployed machinist when he somehow acquired $20,000 for Hamas and was an ISM volunteer who had once been deported from Israel.

    Paul LaRudee, the head of Norcal ISM in the San Francisco Bay Area, was caught and deported from Israel in 2006. I learned that he traveled to Israel again after being deported under the false name of Paul Wilder. He used that name and passport again during the Mavi Marmara debacle.

    When the ISM trained me, they told me to photocopy my passpor,t so if I were ever detained by the Magav (Israel Border Police, ed.} or IDF, I could slip away while my colleagues made trouble and be assured my passport was back at the hotel.

    Criminals use an alias for a specific reason, as do ISM activists, who really are no better than criminals when they serve as human shields for the terrorist groups that would kill Jews and other Israelis.

    By LaRudee’s own account, they are not pacifists but recognize the right of the Arabs to use arms against Israelis and even encourage this. They are human shields who only claim to be pacifists to trick the uninitiated.

    LaRudee, after a struggle in the Israeli Supreme Court, was deported and then went to Lebanon to aid the Hizbullah as a human shield during the 2006 summer war, along with ISM co-founders Huwaida Arraf and Adam Shapiro.

    So – sure enough, after some investigating, I learned that Danish ISM activist Andreas Ayas is not whom he says he is. An article put out by the Guardian in the UK has Ayas admitting he used a faked identity and his name is not Ayas or Ias.

    To quote the Guardian: “Nevertheless, Ias – not his real name – is dismayed that in the aftermath of him being struck in the face with a soldier’s rifle, so little attention has focused on what he describes as the routine aggression, harassment and displacement suffered by Palestinian villagers in the area.”

    OK, blah, blah, blah, the usual “routine aggression, harassment and displacement of the innocent Palestinian villagers” spiel and baloney as they throw rocks and Molotov cocktails at our IDF soldiers like Lieutenant Colonel Eisner and facilitate terror attacks on Israelis.

    When someone enters a foreign country to attack the security personnel within and act as a human shield for terrorist groups – and does so with a fake identity and passport – I’d call that a major crime.

    When someone enters a foreign country to attack the security personnel within and act as a human shield for terrorist groups – and does so with a fake identity and passport – isn’t that a major crime?

    What a coup for this anarchist, that he could even end the advancement and career of an IDF Lieutenant Colonel, denying him promotion and position in the IDF! Why, he can go back to Denmark and train other ISM activists and anarchists to spend their summer vacations doing the same thing in the Holy Land. Maybe Mark Regev can do public service announcements for him.

    As this information emerges we have to ask ourselves, “When is the Israeli government going to reinstate Lieutenant Colonel Eisner and drop charges and penalties against him? And when is Anders-whoever-he–is going to be arrested, jailed and deported for good from Israel?”

    The Danish ambassador also owes the People of Israel and our diplomatic corps, as well as Lieutenant Colonel Eisner, an apology, as do the Israeli Prime Minister,, the Defense Minister and the IDF brass.

    Meanwhile, we can all hear the crickets chirping in the background…

      “International Solidarity Movement”–is in reality a Marxist organization!

    2. C.R. says:

      So the Danish criminal used a false name–what is his real name?

      last night we could not sleep and put on reshet bet at l in the morning. with jojo the famous left wing reporter having a chat show – the first caller was about eisner outraged at his treatment. now the bombshell. jojo said that he was so angry about what happened he did something he has never done before, he went to all the powerful influential people he knows to correct this injustice. he said he cannot say what was said in the conversations but it will be okay for eisner. he also said that the whole country is in uproar about this.
      so if that is the case then it will not damage eisner it will boomerang against our useless cowardly leaders. and as for that worm who came here, he will get his punishment there is a god after all and when he exacts revenge its a beautiful sight to watch
      at the time i thought how do they know if the person is using a false name or not. it seemed to me so easy for them to lie and get in as they are so good at lying. masters.

      It is hardly believable that the MOSSAD and GSS did not know that the Dane was a fake.
      No one, I mean no one who is of interest to the security people is missed, in particular not half baked jerks like the ISM operatives.
      And there hundreds of those types roaming about.
      That leads me to the conclusion that their activities are viewed as positive to some in the “combina”. Somebody or group in power want them here… Who can benefit from having such extreme distraction keeping us busy?
      Obvious. The local internal enemies would be looked upon in better light compared to the foreign scum. Barak, Alon, Gal-On, Tibi, the “piece now gangs”, etc, get cookie points compared to them…
      The ISM operatives provide the extreme unJews with a cover screen. That is why they are allowed in.
      What say you?

      @ SHmuel HaLevi:

      You might be right but there have been others like the perps who did Mikes place and some others who were not detected and picked up.

    6. bernard ross says:

      Did I miss something, who really is Andreas Ayas or Ias? For me, the greatest travesty in this incident was another demonstration of disloyalty by one group of Jews towards another. Loyalty transcends ideology, which is usually borne of vanity.

    7. SHmuel HaLevi says:

      @ yamit82:
      True Yamit, but those were one time hit monsters, nasty single hit murderers.
      The ISM includes a large number of people actively transiting in and out, constantly.
      They may even mail boxes and even accounts here.
      Something that should be looked into…

    8. yamit82 says:

      @ SHmuel HaLevi:

      I agree. They are here because somebody in the Israeli establishment wants them here. Then the question is who and then why? I see no positive reason why they let them in? You’d think we have enough problems without having to deal with them. Doesn’t anybody up there know about Murphy’s Law? How about the LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES?

    9. yamit82 says:

      @ C.R.:

      I read somewhere his name is Christian Ragbladet or C.R.!! How about that? Must be a coincidence.
