Isn’t there a law against this?
Academic departments at leading universities in Northern California, including UC Berkeley and Santa Clara University, have recently begun co-sponsoring events with South Bay Mobilization (SBM), a group associated with Hamas.
While South Bay Mobilization is not the only organization in the Bay Area that has ties to Hamas through the activities of some of its leaders and/or members, it has taken a leading role on university campuses throughout the Bay Area. Members of South Bay have had luncheons with Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas, and have accepted medals from him in a highly propagandistic manner.
Members of South Bay Mobilization have also been linked to the Free Gaza Movement, which sailed to the Gaza Strip from Cyprus in August 2008. Therefore, South Bay Mobilization’s support for the Free Gaza Movement also constitutes support of Hamas and its aims, and is equivalent to an endorsement of terror, murder, and genocide.
……On August 24, during their visit, the group met with Ismail Haniyeh, a senior leader of Hamas. What appears to be a large Hamas flag was flown on board one of the ships at its arrival. Haniyeh personally awarded medals to the Free Gaza members.
……In addition to potentially violating U.S. laws which forbid contact with terrorist organizations — Hamas being among the world’s most notorious — Free Gaza members also may have violated the U.S. Neutrality Act by illegally raising money in California to bankroll two boats which they sailed into Gaza. This incident was known as the “Gaza boat incident.”
The U.S. Neutrality Act that is codified in Section 960 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code states:
Whoever, within the United States, knowingly begins or sets on foot or provides or prepares a means for or furnishes the money for, or takes part in, any military or naval expedition or enterprise to be carried on from thence against the territory or dominion of any foreign prince or state, or of any colony, district, or people with whom the United States is at peace, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
Don’t expect the State Department (especially after Obama swears in) to get too excited over this blatant act of treason.
The ‘Baghdad Democrats’–Representatives David Bonior, Jim McDermott, and Mike Thompson–appeared on national TV from Baghdad on 29 September 2002, and plead Saddam’s case to the world as if he were just an innocent bystander in the Middle East terrorism/WMD scheme of things.
“So how does it feel to be used as a propaganda tool against your own country?”, asked CNN’s Jane Arraf when he was still in Baghdad. McDermott said ‘it feels fine’. “If being used means that we’re highlighting the suffering of Iraqi children, or any children, then, yes, we don’t mind being used.”
The suffering of Iraqi children who ended up in Saddam’s mass graves apparently didn’t suffer enough.
Nancy Pelosi and Dennis Kucinich both traveled to Syria, a major contributor to world-wide terrorism, and proceeded to engage in anti-American propaganda.
Jimmy Carter, who never met a dictator he didn’t like, is a self-appointed liaison to groups like Hamas.
These fine examples of Democratic excrement violated Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution as well as the Logan Act, and suffered not one penalty.
America’s leftwing academic intelligentsia is no stranger to crawling into the political sack with Communists, Socialists, and now Islamofascists; basically every lunatic fringe on the spectrum.
What angers me is unwillingness of the DOJ to prosecute the lackeys who gladly shill for the bellicose douchebags who want us dead.
