Me too. That's all we need is for the radical JDL's start a religious war in America. If muslims and jews can't live in peace in a country that protects a person's right to practice the religion of their choice, then it is time to deport them all!

Is this guy a TERRORIST? Is he bombing combatants in war? Is his purpose to terrorize? Why, let's blame the entire faith . . . and why the hurry to charge him with anything? Let's just hold him without charges until Spring. And lose the lawyer.

I believe there's only one mosque in Culver City on Washington Blvd. It has had pro-American slogans posted on it for at least a few weeks, for what it's worth.

I've seen him on tv shows before. Definently an amusing character. I may agree with alot of the JDL positions but I STRONLGY disagree violence, threats of violence, and attacks on americans. Ploting to blow up a mosque or kill a congressman just isn't kosher.

The JDL is bad medicine. They should be investigated thoroughly when suspected of terrorist activitiy.

The JDL is an exception. A very rare thing for Jews to do something like this. BUT Muslim orgs. all over the nation - in Michigan over 89 - are being investigated for terrorist ties. Hardly the same thing. If this is true they are idiots. But Irv Rubin is not stupid so I'll wait to see the evidence.

Right you are.

But if this idiot wanted to strap a bomb to himself and give the Arabs terrorizing Israel (there) a taste of their own medicine...I would have to think long and hard.

Hello CG.

How about the part where they were running the "Zoom Copter" kiosks at the malls?
Odd choice, I thought.

Do you believe 'Jihad Darrell'?

Every six months, a snake crawls out of its old skin, but it is still a snake. Congressman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., – "Jihad Darrell" – should know this.

But while he tries to wriggle out of his recent pro-terrorist comments and actions abroad, he thinks he can fool us into believing he's a new creature.

Jihad Darrell made laudatory comments about Arab terrorist group, Hezbollah, while he was in Lebanon, his third trip in only a few months. It was reported by a number of Arab sources and newspapers, including the Tehran Times. He claimed that the activities of Hezbollah were "legitimate resistance," that the group does a lot of "humanitarian" things, that he has "tremendous sympathy" for its "work," and a number of other accolades usually not bestowed by U.S. congressmen on a group that killed over 261 American Marines and officials, is part of bin Laden's al-Qaida network, and helped bin Laden blow up the Khobar Towers (full of U.S. servicemen) by supplying the explosives."

Hardly... Issa has reportedly defended the terrorist hijackers and said airport security is racist against A-rabs.

Bio Darrell Issa Republican Congressman 48th District of California

Darrell Issa (EYE-sa) is a high tech businessman and an electronics industry leader who represents the 48th District of California in the United States House of Representatives.

Congressman Issa serves on three influential committees: the House Committee on International Relations, the House Judiciary Committee, and the House Committee on Small Business. As a member of these committees, Congressman Issa brings real world experience to the task of improving American competitiveness, fostering the development of new technologies, and creating a well-prepared and educated workforce.

Congressman Issa’s legislative priorities include: restoring confidence in the Social Security system, cutting regulatory red tape and taxes, strengthening America’s national defenses, reducing the national debt, and increasing standards and accountability in education.

Prior to his election to Congress, Darrell Issa founded Vista, California based Directed Electronics and built the company into the industry-leader in automobile convenience, audio and security products. He is the immediate past Chairman of the Consumer Electronics Association and a former Governor of the Electronic Industries Alliance. He has also served as a Director of the Business-Industry Political Action Committee, the San Diego Economic Development Association and the Greater San Diego County Chamber of Commerce. In 1994, Issa received Inc. Magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

In 1996, Issa co-chaired the campaign to pass the California Civil Rights Initiative, the history-making measure that ended the granting of racial and gender preferences and quotas in state contracting and college admissions. The grandson of immigrants, Issa has served as President of the American Task Force For Lebanon. He is a recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, which recognizes immigrants or their descendants who “through struggle, sacrifice and success, helped build this great nation.”

Issa enlisted in the Army during his senior year of high school, and after attending college on a ROTC scholarship, attained the rank of Captain. In the military, he worked as a bomb disposal technician, tank platoon commander, and a computer R&D specialist. He is a graduate and serves on the Board of Trustees of Siena Heights University in Adrien, Michigan.

Issa, 47, is a native of Cleveland, Ohio, and resides in Vista, California. Darrell and his wife Kathy have one son, William, who is a college student.

A very rare thing for Jews to do something like this.

I support Israel's right to exist, and I agree that violence is no more present in the Jewish faith than any other faith.

But, are you familiar with the Lavon affair -- when the Israelis plotted to bomb the US Embassy in Egypt in order to create a diplomatic rift between the U.S. and Egypt? Are you familiar with the Israelis planting a bomb in an Iraqi synagogue, making it look like it was Iraqis who did it, so that Iraqi Jews would immigrate to Israel? If you doubt this, read Golda Meir's autobiography. She talks about it.

It is disgusting that the FBI is going after those who fight terrorists!

If these accusations are true, these are terrorists. People trying to blow up stuff in my neighborhood, be they Arab, Jew, Christian, or otherwise, really PISS ME OFF.

The Jewish Defense League is to the Jews as the abortion clinic terrorists are to the Christians, if that is a grossly fair way to put it. Although they never used pipe bombs. This is quite a surprising report. Maybe the FBI is trying to protect a Palestinian terror front the JDL was targeting. The JDL targets persecutors of the Jews and have in the past rioted with red graffiti a Soviet Aeroflot jet liner in New York because of Soviet oppression of Russian Jewry.
