Ayers, Dorhn helped organize 'peace' flotilla
American Thinker ^ | 6/3/10 | Rick Moran

Posted on 06/03/2010 2:02:58 PM PDT by Wilderness Conservative

Former Weather Underground leaders William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Code Pink founder Jodie Evans, helped organize the Free Gaza Movement, which launched the six-ship flotilla from Turkey to Israel that ended in a violent clash with Israeli Defense Forces, BigGovernment.com reported.

In January, the trio were spotted in Egypt attempting to stir up crowds on the streets with 1,400 other left-wing activists after the Egyptian government refused to allow Free Gaza Movement members to enter the Gaza Strip. About 100 marchers were eventually allowed to cross the border, where they were met by former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh.

BigGovernment quotes author Philip Weiss, who wrote that he witnessed Ayers and Dohrn arguing with fellow activists over whether to accept Egypt's offer to allow a small number of them into Gaza:

"Dohrn said that the principle of ‘All or none' was a miserable one for activist politics. You always took what you could get and kept fighting for more. A European man in a red keffiyeh screamed at her that she was serving the fascisti. Her partner Bill Ayers gently confronted him and asked him why he was so out of control. Between getting on and off the bus, Dohrn, who wore a flower in her hair, said that she didn't like the absolutist certainty of the people on the other side of the police barricades, and having been in the Weather Underground, she knew something about absolutist feeling."

As political theater, an argument between the aging flower child/domestic terrorist and a fellow traveler over who knew more about "absolutist feelings" would be hard to top.

So Obama's terrorist friends are still involved with terrorism...why am I not surprised?

It's time to impeach Obama. Biden is an idiot, but he can't be worse than Obama.

It wouldn't surprise me to find that U.S. tax dollars were funneled into one of the Flotilla projects...

And who came up with the name 'Flotilla'? Isn't that a Disney ride? I laugh every time I hear that word used for a boatload of Islamomanics and progressives.

The world has gone mad... but then again we have a President with the middle name Hussein...

All I want to know is, what the hell kind of humanitarian aid includes, bombs, ammo, bullet-resistant vests, night vision goggles, and a bunch of people without passports in international waters but they do have wills made out talking about jihad and being martyred?

This is NOT ‘humanitarian aid’ as anything we would recognize as such. It is arms smuggling under phony humanitarian aid cover.

Ayers and his wife, Code Pink, Obama - I wonder how these "Final Solutionists" were able to organize protests and "stir up crowds" . . . in Egypt!!?? Believe me, it takes some serious intervention and string pulling through official US Embassy channels to organize protests and stir up crowds in Egypt if you're an Americann or any infidel for that matter. Hell, they don't even let their own people stir up crowds. They'd be shot.

Somebody should start asking questions about who set this protest flotilla up. Was it Barry himself?

Tinfoil or no, it doesn’t look good — the whole thing was a set up to pressure Israel.

It always makes me wonder where obama goes and who he meets when he shakes off the media from accompanying him, or under the shadow of a “family vacation” in Chicago. I would love to know who came knock’in at the obama’s door while he was in Chicago recently, or who obama “met with” behind closed doors.

WE KNOW socialist have lots to talk about...is there any one out there willing to “leak” on obama?

'Ayers, Dorhn helped organize 'peace' flotilla'
These two maggots are GUILTY of violationg: The above laws are 'extra jurisdictional', so I'm suuuuuuuuure that our ace US AG, Eric Holder, will jump right on this and indict them by next Monday.

Or.... Holder will go golfing with Barry and then there'll be a big Welcome Home Party in the White House for Ayers and Dohrn.

My head is ready to explode!

Imagine the rules of the Neighborhood Association in the Chicago suburb of Kenwood where Louis Farrakhan , the Obamas
and cop killer Bernardine Dohr and Pentagon bomber Bill Ayers all live together.
American flags can only be burned on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Israeli flags can be burned on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The clubhouse has to be reserved in advance for planning subversive and anti American activities.
Please dispose of bomb making materials properly.
Prayer rugs should be returned in good order.
Volunteers are needed to spit on members of the US military - sign up sheet in the clubhouse office.
Saturday night’s monthly community BBQ will feature lessons in destroying the US Constitution ,
a lecture by Louis Farrakhan on the evils of white people , Republicans and Jews
and a singing of the Muslim call to prayer by local soprano Barack Obama.
After dinner , Michelle Obama will give a demonstration poolside of her daily fitness routine, including deadlifting 600 lbs.
A cash bar will be open with proceeds to benefit Hamas and Hezbollah and Al Queda .

Former Weather Underground leaders William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Code Pink founder Jodie Evans, helped organize the Free Gaza Movement, which launched the six-ship flotilla from Turkey to Israel that ended in a violent clash with Israeli Defense Forces, BigGovernment.com reported.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2008 PM : (NY CITY : OBAMA CAMPAIGN STAFFER JODIE EVANS LEADS A DELEGATION OF ANTI-AMERICAN LEFTIST GROUPS TO VISIT IRANIAN PRESIDENT AHMADINEJAD -- See CODE PINK, MEDEA BENJAMIN {--founder of GLOBAL EXCHANGE; See CUBA, WWP, CODE PINK, NION, POWER COMPANIES, RANGEL [D-NY], MFSO, MARLA RUZICKA}, BRIAN BECKER, LESLIE CAGAN {Member of MFS [see IPS,VVAW & PCPJ]; PFAW; 1996 Co-Chair of NNOC [see CISPES] Co-Chair of UFPJ; NION signer; Founder of Committees of Correspondence [see CPUSA] Associated with the VECEMEROS BRIGADES [OFFSHOOT OF SDS?, FUNDED & TRAINED BY CUBAN INTELLIGENCE]}, LARRY HOLMES & RAMSEY CLARK) A founding member of the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois met in New York City tonight with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Jodie Evans, who co-hosted Obama's first major fundraiser in Hollywood in February 2007 just after Obama announced his candidacy and is a top fundraiser and donor to Obama's campaign, led a delegation of leftist anti-American groups that held a private meeting near the United Nations. The stated purpose of the meeting was to "serve as an opening for diplomatic resolution" to prevent war between Iran and the United States.
...Obama has stated that he would be willing to meet with Ahmadinejad and other enemies of the United States without conditions. Evans [ALSO] met with Obama in Beverly Hills last week at an exclusive $28,500 per person fundraiser....
Evans is co-founder of the pro-terrorist group Code Pink and works with state sponsors of terrorism to undermine America in the war on terror. She also has publicly announced her support for the terrorists in Iraq, her sympathy for Osama bin Laden and her "love" of Hugo Chavez. Given Evans' closeness to regular contacts with Obama and his campaign, it is fair to ask if she is acting as an intermediary for Obama....
Others attending the meeting with Ahmadinejad included anti-American activists who support the terrorists in Iraq and work anti-American governments: Medea Benjamin, Brian Becker, Leslie Cagan, Larry Holmes and Ramsey Clark. ....

OCTOBER 23, 2009 : (REPORT : OBAMA FUNDRAISER JODIE EVANS {see CODE PINK, MAX PALEVSKY} MET WITH TALIBAN RECENTLY, ACCORDING TO "HANOI" JANE FONDA) Top Obama donor and fundraiser Jodie Evans met with the Taliban in Afghanistan on a recent trip there, according to a report by Jane Fonda of a discussion she had with Evans last month. The meeting with the Taliban took place just weeks before Evans was videotaped directly handing to President Barack Obama a package of information about her trip to Afghanistan at a high dollar fundraiser in San Francisco.
The meeting with the Taliban was kept secret by Evans and her group Code Pink in reports she and the group posted from Kabul and in interviews with the media and bloggers about the trip. Fonda, a close friend of Evans, let the secret meeting slip in an account of her dinner with Evans at a fundraiser for the Armand Hammer Museum in Los Angeles:
Last Saturday, My dear friends Jodie Evans and Max Palevsky, invited Richard and me to join them at their table at a fundraiser at the Armand Hammer Museum in Westwood. It was a good evening for lots of reasons. I had never been to the museum and definitely want to go back. Clearly it is a courageous place, very cutting edge. Then, too, I saw lots of friends I hadn’t seen in a long time and I sat next to Jodie who told me a little about her recent trip to Afghanistan with an American delegation that included a retired colonel, and member the State Department (Army Reserves Col. (Ret.) and ex-diplomat Ann Wright).
While there, she met with people ranging from the brother of President Karzai, Afghan members of Parliament, activists, to warlords and members of the Taliban (emphasis added.) Jodie is co-founder of the peace organization, Code Pink, and always willing to go to any lengths to try and find out what’s really going on. Bottom line: everyone she met with wants the U.S. Military out of their country. They feel our presence there has brought more violence rather than security. Please read a short article she wrote about the trip which is on the Women’s Media Center website.
There is precedent to suspect that Evans is acting as a conduit for the Taliban to Obama. In June [2009], her fellow Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin hand carried a letter out of Gaza from the terrorist group Hamas addressed to Obama.
