Arab group being harassed by Kahanist “journalist” once had its leader murdered by the JDL

According to Politico, the Zionist neocon shills at Washington Free Beacon are attempting to get their hands on a 2008 speech Hagel made at the annual convention of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC):

Ayoub says that staffers from the Washington Free Beacon, which is backed by the conservative Center for American Freedom, showed up at ADC offices and harassed them for the tape. “They came to our offices — threatening us, demanding information, arguing with security. They got very abrasive, very aggressive,” Ayoub said. “In fact, the FBI was in here last week because of those type of threats.”

One the key “journalists” leading this crusade is one Alana Goodman, a University of Massachusetts graduate who has written for similar right-wing rags such as the Weekly Standard, the New York Post, the Washington Examiner, and Commentary. In 2008, she wrote a love letter to George W. Bush for a college newspaper in which she approvingly quoted the far-right Zionist terror leader Rabbi Meir Kahane:

To borrow a phrase from Rabbi Meir Kahane, “One does not deal with terrorists; one does not bargain with terrorists; one kills terrorists.” I’m grateful to have a leader who understands this. Bush will be truly missed.

Rabbi Kahane, of course, was an avid advocate of ethnically cleansing all Palestinians from Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel proper. The political party he founded in Israel was banned for racist incitement and its various offshoots have been tied to various acts of right-wing Jewish terrorism against Palestinian Arabs as well as violence against Jews accused of left-wing leanings. His US-based group, the Jewish Defense League, has an incredibly long list of acts of terrorist violence committed by its leadership and sympathizers.

Perhaps the most well-known victim of JDL terrorism was Alex Odeh:

Alex Odeh (April 4, 1944 – October 11, 1985) was an Arab-American anti-discrimination activist who was killed in a bombing as he opened the door of his office at 1905 East 17th Street, Santa Ana, California. Odeh was west-coast regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC).
[…]
Born into a Palestinian Christian (Latin rite Catholic) family in Jifna, the West Bank, Odeh immigrated to the United States in 1972.[1] He was a lecturer and poet who had published a volume of his poetry, Whispers in Exile.[2]

The Boston office of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee suffered a bombing on August 16, 1985, injuring two officers.[3] The Santa Ana bombing came the day after the ending of the Palestine Liberation Front–sponsored Achille Lauro attack in which Jewish American Leon Klinghoffer was killed.[4] The night before his death Odeh denied to the media that the PLO was involved in the hijacking and portrayed Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat as being ready to make peace.[2] The day of his murder he had been scheduled to speak at Friday prayer services at a synagogue in Fountain Valley, California.[5]

Shortly before his killing, Odeh appeared on the television show Nightline. The program featured a back-and-forth between Odeh and a representative from the Jewish Defense League, a Jewish armed militant organization which has been characterized by the FBI as a terrorist group involved in numerous attacks within the United States.[6]
[…]
Irv Rubin, who had become chairman of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) the same year, immediately made several public statements in reaction to the incident. “I have no tears for Mr. Odeh,” Rubin said. “He got exactly what he deserved.”[7] He also said: “My tears were used up crying for Leon Klinghoffer.”[8]

All I can say to the ADC is this: be careful when dealing with these Zionist fanatics. You never know what type of violence they are capable of, be it state-sanctioned or otherwise.
