ISM Exposed: How the ISM Sucker-Punched the IDF Again

At 26 seconds we see Ayas in the foreground of the shot sporting only a cut lip with no serious injuries and fleeing toward the camera. However, in the same frame we can also discern Colonel Eisner trying to restrain the man with the baseball cap, who moved to where Ayas had been standing and refused to disperse. The Colonel attempts to arrest him but due to his hand injury cannot hold him, and another ISM activist grabs the man in the baseball cap and helps him escape. The interloper is arrested by other soldiers, while Colonel Eisner is relegated to a spectator’s role as he clearly cannot use one of his hands. The rest of the video shows female ISMers breaking the line and interfering with the soldiers again; another anarchist tactic is to send women in so it can be claimed the soldiers abuse the fairer sex. Be that as it may, anyone caught interfering with an arrest or even touching a police officer elicits an uncompromising response in any Western country. The end of the film shows a woman that had been arrested sitting next to the male ISM activist who had run interference on Colonel Eisen’s arrest, and the Colonel chatting with them.

As mentioned, ISM activists like Ayas are told during training not to fear or even respect IDF soldiers. They are told that the soldiers really have no authority over them and are under orders not to hurt them, and the activists are thus encouraged to challenge the soldiers at every turn. If instructed by soldiers to back up ten feet, we were trained to back up only five feet, in order to maintain a consistent and intense level of interference. In training we were told that the soldiers are allowed to detain us but not arrest us, and that the soldiers must call and wait for police, a wait that facilitates a getaway. We were told to photocopy our passports so that if detained, we could slip away. Our training emphasized that when in closed military zones, such as the one in which Ayas was struck, and if ordered to disperse or leave the area, that we must refuse and demand to see the soldier’s orders in writing.

This elaborate tutelage has essentially turned interference with the IDF into a titillating game for college anarchists in America and Europe, who are recruited for “summer vacations in Palestine” to mess with the IDF soldiers. In a perverse type of package deal, they can get that “revolutionary” experience and raise hell without the risk of being shot – as in Tiananmen Square or Tehran – or even endure the rough handling of an American police officer. Interfering with the IDF and aiding Arabs in attacking them has bestowed upon ISMers cult status within American universities, and now one university even has an ISM chapter dedicated to prepare students for such missions. Andreas Ayas wannabes are recruited every week on US and UK campuses, and Colonel Eisner was merely another pawn – and victim -  in the ISM’s game plan.

These ISM activists from the US and Europe do more than just abuse free speech to interfere with the IDF, nor are they starry-eyed pacifists. They represent a definite security risk to Israel and are documented terrorist confederates. In the photo below are ISM activists, one from Denmark like Ayas, who gleefully pose with AK47s in Jericho alongside Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade terrorists.

Note that the woman is dressed to look like a female Jewish settler, even though she is not Jewish. ISM activists routinely work to smuggle Arabs or parcels that may contain weapons or explosives past checkpoints into Israel. The ISM even organized an event called the Tel Rumeida Circus, which performed juggling and fire tricks at checkpoints to distract the IDF soldiers and facilitate the smuggling enterprise.

A Rogue’s Gallery

Paul LaRudee

Paul LaRudee, one of ISM’s major organizers in the US, was caught and deported from Israel after I tipped off the Israeli government to the fact that he was traveling to Israel under an assumed name, Paul Wilder. Until that point, he had been slipping in and out of the country, regularly meeting with members of Hamas. After exhausting the appeals process in Israeli courts, he went on to Lebanon to assist Hezbollah during the 2006 war.

  1. Garry Berkey says:

    The propagandist posted many videos on YouTube beginning with the M-16 strike. So many fell for this. I asked many, "What happened before the strike, which the videos don't show?" Brainwashed for decades from the liberal owned mainstream media, they only came back to me with anger at my question. What a shame this is.

  2. Excellent analysis of the ISM tactics.

  3. Brian Fink says:

    It's no use complaining that 'it's not fair' this an existential war.The IDF must not only be stronger but smarter than our enemies. The Americans found out in Vietnam that wars can be won and lost on TV screens, how much more so in the Internet age! Perhaps the C.O. of each unit can have a helmet camera such as the British police on special operations have and quickly upload the footage onto the Internet to counteract ISM manipulated propaganda. Why not Tasers which are non-lethal? Disable the rudders and propellors of blockade running ships and no one gets hurt.Think SMART!

  4. Yehuda Alan says:

    Adam Shapiro a member of ISM? That is a Jewish name. Please let me he is not Jewish that the name came from his father but his mother is not Jewish. How could a Jew have so much hatred for the state of israel, as imperfect as it is?

  5. Cassandra Victoria says:

    Absolutely! Pepper spray and tear gas too! I cannot believe the IDf let these scum stand right next to them!! This is intolerable!!

  6. Cassandra Victoria says:

    I am afraid he is a (kapo) Jew. Not only that, he is married to his co-leader an Arab anti-semite woman. They are funded by George Sore-ass, the Nazi. This fool is being laughed at behind his back; he will be killed when his usefulness is over. Good riddance!

  7. Charlie Hall says:

    The US won every single battle in Vietnam. But it was a battle in support of a brutal, corrupt, and undemocratic regime, and the other side had a great propaganda machine. Little did anyone know that the other side was even more brutal to its people and even less democratic.

  8. Hill says:

    Great revealing article. Well done.

    Eisner should be given a medal.

    Come on Israel, Brian Fink is correct. You have to be smarter-Helmet Cameras and pepper spray and a few bloody noses and crack ribs will make the ISM rethink their false bravdo.

    Furthermore, If ISM are recruiting because they know the IDF will not give them a bloody nose tells me everything I need to know. Stop fearing what the international MSM have to say, they have already found you guilty, protect your soldiers first and by and large the citizens of Israel.

  9. Asher B. Garber says:

    What a bunch of useless idiots. How much energy have these "peace protesters" (i.e. protesting peace) wasted in their battle against history and logic? There is a reason why the Palestinians don't have a state, and it's not AIPAC.

  10. Asher B. Garber says:

    Not only is he Jewish, but I believe he camped out with Arafat when the PLO headquarters came under fire during the early stages of Intifada II: Electric Boogaloo.

  11. You are right Brian, wars are won and lost on the tv screen, but not the way most people think. It is really your own population that you need to worry about, as opposed to everyone else's. The US was in no threat or danger from other nations due to the Vietnam war, but could no longer effectively wage a war which its own population did not support. This is a great analysis of the incident:

  12. These guys are the ultra left equivalent of Ted Nugent and his band of nut case tea baggers.

  13. Charlie Hall everyone knew that, but leftists didn't care

  14. ship them all to Berlin after they clean toilets at Yad Vashem for five years.

  15. Cassandra Victoria says:

    Asher B. Garber aaaarrgh!!! What did his parents do to him??

  16. Peter Wilson says:

    Time to declare the ISM a terrorist-supporting organization. Arrest its members once detected and imprison them.

The elimination of the buffer zone by the security fence will not only leave Israel more vulnerable to attacks by terrorists, but also invite “publicity stunts” by adversarial non-governmental organizations.

Freedom House

In a clear distortion of information, the once prestigious Freedom House, a not-for-profit organization that purports to monitor which societies in the world are truly free, appears deliberately to have omitted and misrepresented easily verifiable information in what can only be seen as an attempt to downgrade Israel from “free” to “partly free.”

The British have been in the news lately for their stretched-to-the-limit political correctness concerning militant Islamists, and have even been jailing British subjects or fining them for allegedly making insulting remarks about Islam. Despite these convictions for “hate crimes” against Islam the British government seems perfectly willing to overlook the converse: anti-Semitic attacks by Iranian front groups against the Jewish community.

A career officer is suspended by the IDF and his career may be in ruins because the ISM manipulated a video to once again defame the IDF. But ISM activists do more than just abuse free speech to interfere with the IDF, nor are they starry-eyed pacifists. They represent a definite security risk to Israel and are documented terrorist confederates.
