Obama, Wheels of Justice, and the International Solidarity Movement

March 29, 2008

Solidarity work against the occupations in Iraq and in Palestine” at Barack Obama’s official Web site. Note that belongs to Obama’s campaign, and Obama has total editorial control over this domain. He can decide what material is and is not suitable for posting there. Given the nature of other material that has been there for a long time, we assume he has no problem with this.

 Wheels of Justice will roll into town this coming week.  The educational tour in a bio-diesel bus always includes speakers who can talk about their grass-roots solidarity work against the occupations in Iraq and in Palestine.  There are five pages of brief bio’s of activists involved at <> – among them are Iraq Veterans Against the War founding member Kelly Dougherty, Kathy Kelly of Voices in the Wilderness, Anna Baltzer and Joe Carr.   

Coming to Utah next week are Ed Kinane who was in Iraq most of 2003 – before, during and after the U.S. invasion – and journalist Mark Turner who just returned from nine months in the West Bank of occupied Palestine.  Hannah Mermelstein takes Mark’s place after Tuesday (read their activist bio’s at the justicewheels website, excerpts are below).

Did the International Solidarity Movement set up Rachel Corrie to be killed so it could make propaganda from her death? In any event, the ISM has been caught lying about the death of an American citizen, which is bad enough by itself.

We are writing to you about the “End the Occupation” conference that is scheduled for September 7-10 at George Mason University ( There are things this organization might not have told you, and that might have affected your decision to allow it to use George Mason University facilities had you known about them. You should be aware that End the Occupation is part of the International Solidarity Movement (aka Palestine Solidarity Movement).

    (1) The ISM says openly that it has direct contacts with Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) as defined by the U.S. State Department
    (2) The ISM says openly that it recruits American college students in the hope of getting them hurt or killed in confrontations with Israeli military forces, for propaganda purposes (e.g. Rachel Corrie).
    (3) An ISM affiliate (Al-Awda) have allegedly solicited acts of terroristic violence on the Internet: specifically the suicide bombing of Ariel Sharon’s hospital room.
    (4) The ISM has provided “safe house” assistance for actual terrorists.
