The Company He Keeps

From a FrontPage article on Leftist supporters of Palestinian terror organizations:
The military has pointed explicitly to the so-called "International Solidarity Movement", which operates cells in the occupied territories and also maintains several hundred members inside Israel, people who entered the country pretending to be tourists. Senior military officials said this week that two terrorists who conducted a bombing of Mike's Pub in Tel Aviv, killing several people, on the Tel Aviv Promenade, came into Israel as ISM members.
The ISM is the same organization to which Chomsky made the turgid, and, in my opinion, blatantly anti-semitic speech cited in this post. Here's some more info on the group and their antics, including the following
[ISM founders] Shapiro and Arraf also characterized “suicide operations” as “noble.” in the January 2002 article. They stated that Palestinians killed in nonviolent protests will have died in a manner:

"... no less noble than carrying out a suicide operation. And we are certain that if these men were killed during such an action, they would be considered shaheed Allah…"
Judge a man, as they say...
