Posted on 06/27/2005 5:22:48 PM PDT by kristinn
At the culmination of a gathering of global 'antiwar' groups in Istanbul to hold court on the liberation of Iraq led by the United States and the United Kingdom, the jurors who heard testimony against the liberators issued their findings which included a declaration of support for the terrorists in Iraq who are killing American, British and coalition soldiers and Iraqis.
The World Tribunal on Iraq is endorsed by leading leftwing organizations from around the world including American-based groups like Not in Our Name Project, United for Peace and Justice, Code Pink and International ANSWER.
The war on terror has reached a critical juncture. The left has publicly chosen sides with this announcement. There can be no more talk of 'we support the soldiers but not the war.' As Aloha Ronnie says, THE ENEMY IS WITHIN.
Here are two statements from the trbunal's announcement on Iraq:
10. There is widespread opposition to the occupation. Political, social, and civil resistance through peaceful means is subjected to repression by the occupying forces. It is the brutality of the occupation that has provoked a strong armed resistance and certain acts of desperation. By the principles embodied in the UN Charter and in international law, the popular national resistance to the occupation is legitimate and justified. It deserves the support of people everywhere who care for justice and freedom.
Recognising the right of the Iraqi people to resist the illegal occupation of their country and to develop independent institutions, and affirming that the right to resist the occupation is the right to wage a struggle for self-determination, freedom, and independence as derived from the Charter of the United Nations, we the Jury of Conscience declare our solidarity with the people of Iraq.
The Tribunal also calls for the world community to support the terrorists by denying aid to those fighting them in Iraq:
10. That people around the world resist and reject any effort by any of their governments to provide material, logistical, or moral support to the occupation of Iraq.
The tribunal betrays the bravery of the 8 million Iraqis who their cast their votes in January by declaring the elected government of Iraq illegitimate. The terrorists couldn't have said it better:
9. Any law or institution created under the aegis of occupation is devoid of both legal and moral authority. The recently concluded election, the Constituent Assembly, the current government, and the drafting committee for the Constitution are therefore all illegitimate.

Some of you may read this and say this is not news. As with last night's posting about Code Pink, the left has been trying keep under wraps their support for the terrorists. Now, they have boldy declared themselves to be on the side of the terrorists.
We knew this day would come after September 11. We just didn't know the day.
I believe it is time to start beheading people just for sympathy for the War on Terror.
(Hell it works for the Terrorists)
Any law or institution created under the aegis of occupation is devoid of both legal and moral authority.
Guess this means the Palestinian Authority is no more?
LOL!! Except it's not really funny. The libs didn't mention that the terrorists are intentionally targetting civilians. How could any civilized person support that?
This so-called "Jury of Conscience" can Kiss My Ass!!!
I guess they like Sadam's regime better. Sheesh.
How nice to finally see the cards that some thought were "hidden".
Global anti-war groups. They should talk to the leaders of the terrorist groups. Oh, wait, they might be the leaders of the terrorist groups.
Seems that they want to both judge and control matters of both legal and moral authority.
Now, does not that sound like Iran's approach to governing.
Thought you might enjoy this.
They mean the Iraqi terrorists. Most of the Iraqi people support whats going on from the polls Ive read.
Also, side with terrorists then die like them.
What is "The Jury of Conscience?" Some sort of UN scientology cult?
The left used to hate it when we supported authoritarian regimes that were against communism. The cried about the repression and human rights violations.
Now when we change our policy and take down authoritarian regimes and spread freedom, they cry about the repression and human right violations.
At least their consistent in their own warped way, they're still hard core communists.
Of course, the "resistance" is killing mostly other Iraqis.
If my country is willing to swear in a pot-bellied, middle-aged soldier's dad with an ANSWER--sized chip on his shoulder, then this particular one is willing to help take out anti-American trash with extreme prejudice.
It'll be interesting to see which democrats show up for the September ANSWER protests.
About the Not in Our Name Project
In March 2002, individuals from different organizations, backgrounds, communities and political perspectives met together at St. Mary's Church in Harlem, NYC, to discuss what was needed to build resistance to the U.S. government's "war on terrorism" launched in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. The group recognized that the government was embarking on a new openly imperial policy towards the world and a dangerous escalation in the curtailment of rights domestically. The Not in Our Name Pledge of Resistance and Statement of Conscience-Not in Our Name are the two living documents that were developed from the March 2002 meeting and express the essence of the Not in Our Name Project. Participation is open to individuals and
organizations that adopt the Pledge and participate in Not in Our Name-initiated and supported events and campaigns.
I'm glad to see the Not in Our Name Project, United for Peace and Justice, Code Pink and ANSWER outed in this manner.
If the feds can tie these groups to the declaration of support for terrorists, it's time to either start deporting or incarcerating.
I here there's openings about 90 miles south of Miami.
