Who and What is the International Solidarity Movement?
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/4/12 | Tzvi Ben Gedaliahu

Posted on 04/16/2012 3:24:43 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM), made more famous by its activist’s confrontation with an IDF soldier, is known as a left-wing pacifist group, but its sole mission in backing “Palestine” is to defame Israel. Whether it qualifies as being “pacifist” depends on whether the definition includes backing the Hamas terrorist organization and Arab “resistance.”

The activist from Denmark was one of approximately two dozen bicyclists stopped by the IDF at a checkpoint in the Jordan Valley on Saturday. During a two-hour confrontation, an IDF officer said he suffered wounds, including broken bones, at the hands of the activists who beat him with sticks. The ISM edited a film that showed the officer rifle-butting the activist, leading to as media outcry and a suspension of the officer pending a further investigation.

Mainstream media describe the ISM as a pacifist group supporting the “Palestinian cause,” but the group includes anarchists who openly support terrorists.

“The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is an organization focused on assisting the Palestinian cause in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict using nonviolent protest,” according to Wikipedia.

Non-violence may have been a principle of its Israeli and Arab and American founders, but if so, traces of it barely exist. .....

Lesser known incidents include an Italian ISM activist kidnapped and killed by Gaza terrorists.

Any organization with "Solidarity" in its name most likely used to be known as "ACORN."
