Where to begin? So much has been going on lately to cement the Left/Islamist alliance here in the Boston area...best to dive right in. We'll take this somewhat chronologically -- as they fall in my email box -- though each section here could probably have made its own post, so dig in, as there is much of interest. In short, the Greens have welcomed in -- and I use the following terms advisedly, realizing I risk losing people by jumping to buzzwords and jargon right at the start, but as you'll see below, I'm probably understating it -- a racist anti-Semite, and at least one core member thinks she'd make a great co-chair.
First, understand that the Green Party (Green-Rainbow here in Massachusetts) view on Sudan is perfectly in sync with the Arab League/Islamist viewpoint:
...We oppose the imposition of sanctions on the Sudanese government, particularly since U.S. sanctions since 1997 have selectively aided rebel groups who have exacerbated Sudanâ€™s civil war. We oppose campaigns to divest from Sudan.
We oppose any military intervention in Sudan by Washington or any other foreign power. We note that African Union troops have been used as proxies for U.S. military operations in several countries in Africa, most recently for the US-Ethiopian invasion of Somalia...
...The United States should normalize relations with Sudan. Washington's hypocritical and false accusations against Sudan should be dropped. All sanctions against Sudan should be removed.
Translation: It's all an Imperialist plot.
[As an aside, in this they are joined by ACLU of Massachusetts employee Nancy Murray who also opposes divestment from Sudan, apparently as some sort of Zionist plot [correction: This particular email refers to divestment from Iran.]
Sensing an opportunity, our own familiar faces have jumped in to GRP (Green-Rainbow Party) politics with both feet. According to a recent message on the GRP email list, referring to Karin Friedemann (aka Maria Hussain, Karima, Karin Friedemann-Hussain, ummyakoub, etc...) and husband Joachim Martillo (aka various other constructions):
Indeed, "Karima's" contributions to the Jamaica Plain Greens discussion list have been numerous.
At the GRP convention this past Saturday, Karin Friedemann appears to have emerged as something of a leader in the party. More on that shortly.
Why do I say "sensing an opportunity?" Because Friedemann's interest in "progressive" politics is reasonably questionable, and her real interests seem to lie elsewhere. From Jon Haber's excellent piece, Marriage:
"Soon after the governor of New Jersey invested all of his state employees' 401K plans in Israel, it was revealed that the governor was being poked from behind by an Israeli agent."
For anyone unfamiliar with the reference, Friedemann was talking about the former governor of New Jersey, James McGreevey, who recently resigned due to a scandal involving his closeted homosexuality. The 401K accusation is total nonsense, and simply used as a hook for a homophobic slur directed at McGreevey's male lover (who was Israeli).
Lest anyone think Friedemann's anti-gay crack was an inadvertent slip of the tongue, here is what this outspoken woman and convert to Islam (under one of her many pseudonyms Maria Hussain) had to say about Islam, feminism and homosexuality in an article entitled "Observations on the Palestinian Solidarity Conference":
"Muslims ... are not seeking peace. We get peace from Allah. In Palestine, we will stop only at victory, which will be, inshaAllah, in the end, a just implementation of Islamic religion. We have to guard against the Palestine movement being represented primarily by homosexuals and feminists." ...
Friedemann has proudly published at David Duke's web site pontificating about...well...from Is Islam a threat to the White race? (must be read to be believed):
Yes, you read that right, the Greens have welcomed in someone who writes racial screeds for David Duke.
But this isn't the time (and space doesn't allow) for (another) in-depth look at Friedemann's various publication venues (such as Jewishtribalreview.org), nor another re-hashing of hubby Martillo's various vile ramblings -- readers of this blog should be well familiar with them just from his many comments left here -- they provide an accurate and concise view of what he's about, so let's take all that as a given and move on.
Martillo recently used his "Ethnic Ashkenazim Against Zionist Israel" blog to plug the GRP convention.
Why the interest? In large part, Sudan. Wife Karin has also been pushing area Muslims to get involved in GRP. As noted before, Karin is a frequent poster on the moderated Muslim American Society/Islamic Society of Boston email list, where she has been agitating for readers to come to the GRP convention. What's the particular interest? A Sudan workshop organized by Friedemann, and CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper gave his blessing to the event. From the email:
GRP open workshop SUDAN: Whatâ€™s going on & what can we do about it?â€
Dr. Abdel-Rahman Mohamed, retired BU Professor and CEO of AIM International, Inc.
Loay Abdulkarim, president of Jamaica Plain Residents for Human Rights
Yousef Abdallah, operations manager of the Northeast office of Islamic Relief
Free admission to non-GRP members...
According to Freidemann, things went swimmingly:
Karin Friedemann for the Muslim Observer
The Green Rainbow Party of Massachusetts, which is affiliated with the national Green Party, held its annual State Convention at the Community Church of Boston on August 25, 2007. Ibrahim Hooper, director of CAIR, told organizers to tell all area Muslims to come to the convention to learn how a grassroots political party is organized. The convention drew about thirty active GRP members and fifteen observers.
After opening remarks, the groups split into three workshops: 2008 Elections Strategy, Using Technology to Promote the Party, and Sudan: Whatâ€™s Going On and What Can We Do About It? Most of the Muslim observers attended the Sudan workshop, which was led by Dr. Abdul Rahman Mohamed, a retired BU professor, Loay Abdel Karim, who heads Jamaica Plain Residents for Human Rights, journalist Keith Harmon Snow, and Yousef Abdallah from Islamic Relief. The popular workshop received reviews of â€œphenomenalâ€ and â€œilluminatingâ€ by those who attended...
Celebrity anti-Semites were in attendance:
Readers may remember McKinney's supporters as having gone on a racist and anti-Semitic tirade after her last electoral loss, telling a member of the press to "put on your yarmulke and celebrate" and "...gonna get your Jewish ass..." Video.
Boston City Councillor Chuck Turner, a regular at anti-Israel/anti-Jewish protests was also there.
