Kill me for Palestine! Rape me for Palestine!

How Supporters of Palestinian Terrorism Are Murdered and Raped by
Their Palestinian Sponsors

Posted By Steven Plaut On April 18, 2011 @ 12:19 am

The media and the cyber-world are all abuzz this week over the
Palestinian-perpetrated murder of an Italian communist and cheerleader
for terrorism. An accomplice to Islamist terrorism, the "victim" was
one Vittorio Arrigoni. He evidently found himself in the middle of a
turf war between Hamas and another genocidal Islamist organization.
The rival terrorist group is being described by the media
alternatively as an al-Qaeda branch or as "Salafists," meaning
Islamist fundamentalists led by Saudi Arabian Wahhabis. But I think
it is more likely they are simply a front for the "Islamist Jihad"
Palestinian terror group.

Arrigoni was sent to Gaza to assist the Islamist terrorists by the
pro-terror International Solidarity Movement or ISM, the same group
that once sent Rachel Corrie into Gaza to collaborate with terrorists
and obstruct Israeli anti-terror operations. One of the more amusing
pastimes this week has been watching radical leftist groups try to
"make sense" of the "senseless" murder of Arrigoni. Many of these
folks simply blame Israel and Jews, reverting to their knee-jerk
anti-Semitic instincts. Others just whine and wring their hands over
the "tragedy."

So just why did the Islamists murder Arrigoni? The answer is simple:
These fanatics believe that everyone who is not a Muslim, and
especially not a Muslim of their own particular fundamentalist genre,
is an infidel, an enemy, someone deserving death. It does not matter
in the least that the infidel in question has come to Gaza to assist
the terrorists. In the case of Arrigoni, it did not even matter that
he had tattoos on his body endorsing their terrorism. The
"bewilderment" being expressed by the ISM and its amen chorus, along
with Arrigoni's Stalinist Italian groupies, is simply further
indicative of how little these people know about the Middle East.

For Arrigoni is just one among many Western fellow-travelers who have
suffered brutal fates at the hands of the Palestinians. The verbal and
physical abuse of Western women at the hands of the Palestinian
"freedom fighters" they came to support have been reported before. A
series of articles in the left-wing pro-Palestinian Ha'aretz
documented the rapes of Western solidarity supporters by the
terrorists they came to serve. According to Haaretz: "One of the more
prominent Umm Salmuna activists – a village south of Bethlehem, long
entrenched in a battle against the West Bank separation fence – is
suspected of the attempted rape of an American peace activist who had
been residing in the village as part of her support of the local
protest." Local Palestinians then tried to cover up the incident and
threatened the victim. A local terrorist named Omar Alladin (that is
his real name) raped and molested a series of American women,
including one who was a Muslem American. Curiously, one of the few
anti-Israel groups to report the incident was a blog run by Arab

Numerous other leftist Western women who have come to the West Bank to
protest Israel's security fence and to confront Israeli soldiers and
police have also been sexually abused and molested by the very
Palestinians they came to support. A leftist local blogger reports
that these Western women are raped by the Palestinians "day after day,
night after night."

The embarrassing secrets of Palestinian molestations of their Western
solidarity supporters are coming out of the closet. The radical Left
has been hiding the reports of sexual abuse, lest they blemish the
terrorist cause. In a report published by one radical activist: "Roni
Aloni Sedovnik, a feminist activist, penned an article in News1 – an
independent website run by respected investigative reporter Yoav
Yitzchak – under the heading "The Left's Betrayal of Female Peace
Activists Who were Sexually Assaulted." She goes on to describe the
molestation as: "A dark secret that threatens to smash the basic
ideological values upon which the demand to end the occupation of the
Territories rests."

Aloni Sedovnik stressed that these are not isolated incidents, but an
ongoing general pattern of abusive behavior by Palestinians against
the very Western women who have come to support them. Sedovnik also
accused radical Israeli feminists of sweeping the information about
the abuses under the rug, lest it diminish world support for the
Palestinian cause beloved by those feminists.

According to the local leftist blogger cited above:

It is not a matter of rape to satisfy lust. They are done
systematically in order to impregnate the girl, and then to marry her,
after she converts to Islam. Of course, we know about this method from
girls who underwent a similar process inside Israel and escaped to
Europe, but it is hard to escape from the [Palestinian] territories.
Sometimes these women, some of whom are already older women, are not
allowed to leave their homes unaccompanied, in order to prevent their
escape. If someone doubts my words…please, check the statistics for
entries and departures, and you will discover that a large portion of
female leftist activists did not leave the country. Everyone knows
about it, but nobody dares to talk about it…I ran into a few Norwegian
girls married to Palestinians. They are not happy. Their lives were
destroyed. Their families have broken off contact with them. They have
no place to return to. They are deep in the raising of children and
wish to die.

Another Israeli blogger denounced the "thunderous silence" that
conspired to hide the sexual abuse.

Meanwhile, the identity crisis in the pro-jihad Left continues to
fester in the wake of the murder of Arrigoni. Members of the ISM
terrorist group to which he belonged were photographed marching about
with a poster showing both Arrigoni and Rachel Corrie, and the slogan
"Same Killer." You can see it here. For the first time ever I
actually agree with the ISM. It was the same killer. That killer was
the ISM itself, which sent these people into the Gaza Strip as
accomplices to terrorism. And in both cases, local Islamists
ultimately snuffed those cheerleaders for terrorism. In Rachel
Corrie's case, after being struck by an Israeli earth-mover (whose
work uncovering terrorist smuggling tunnels she was trying to
sabotage), Corrie was taken to a Palestinian medical facility in Gaza,
where she evidently died due to incompetent care and staff.

No sooner was Arrigoni murdered by Palestinian Islamist terrorists
than other Palestinian Islamist terrorists held a protest march in
Arrigoni's honor and memory. You can see a terrorist website report
about that march here. You will note that the page supposedly shows
an Israeli soldier throwing a rock (back) at violent protesters. But
the thrower is not wearing any Israeli uniform. Also note that the
page's headline reads, "Man shot with live ammunition during protest
for Vittorio." It is getting so difficult for Palestinian apologists
to keep all their lies straight.

While the Italian communists and their Western fellow-travelers are
beatifying Arrigoni as a "peace activist," some images from Arrigoni's
personal webpage can be seen here. You will note the open
endorsements of violence; the maps showing Israel annihilated and
replaced by "Palestine." Arrigoni's facebook page is also a
cornucopia of blind hatred. It includes the medieval blood libel
charge that "Zionists" would arrest Jesus if he were to come back
today. Somewhat amusing coming from a communist. A photo that
Arrigoni included and thought was just delightful is a sign in a store
that announces that dogs and Israelis (spelled wrong) may not enter.
Vittoria Arrigoni had an Arabic tattoo on his arm that read
"Al-Muqawmin" – "Those who Resist." Probably the most popular photo
of him is one in which he is embracing the genocidal Neo-Nazi head of
the Hamas terrorist organization.

Islamist terrorists murder not just clueless Western leftists, but
also other Muslems. The AFP news bureau is reporting that another
group of Islamist supremacists, this one also allegedly having
"Salafist" ties, is murdering people in Jordan. The victims there,
however, were all Muslims. They were shoppers in the town of Zarqa,
and for some reason, were regarded by the Islamists as "atheists."
According to the report: "The Salafists have been demonstrating for
several weeks to demand the release of 90 Islamist prisoners,
including Abu Mohammed al-Maqdessi, the one-time mentor of slain
Al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi, who comes from
Zarqa in the north, was killed in an air strike northeast of Baghdad
in 2006. 'We will not forget you, Abu Musab Zarqawi. You are the
prince of martyrs,' read one banner carried by Salafists during the
demonstration. 'The grandsons of Zarqawi demand sharia (Islamic) law
in Jordan,' read another."

Hamas and the other terrorist groups, backed by much of the radical
Left, lost no time at all in placing the blame on Israel for the death
of Arrigoni. The ISM refused to condemn the Islamist terrorists who
murdered their own activist. It was much too busy turning out its
anti-Israel hate propaganda. Amusingly, some other ISM allies placed
the blame elsewhere. The "Uruknet" website, run by exiled Iraqi
Baathists loyal to Saddam Hussein, blamed the "Stop the ISM" web site
run by intrepid journalist Lee Kaplan for the death. The Uruknet
"source" for that claim is "Palestine Think Tank," a Neo-Nazi website
run by Holocaust Denier Gilad Atzmon. There are thousands of other
websites blaming "Stop the ISM," many of them far-leftist sites in
Italian. Awfully clever of that Stop the ISM website to arrange for
Islamist terrorists in Gaza to strangle a notorious ISM cheerleader
working for the Hamas.

Palestinian terrorists actually have a long track record of murdering
and torturing Westerners who support them. Some instances that come
to mind appear here. Other Arab terrorists have murdered and
kidnapped other Western supporters of Arab terrorism. Angelo
Frammartino was an earlier pro-terror communist volunteer for the ISM
from Italy, who was killed by the terrorists from the Islamic Jihad
group. Carlos Chavez was a farm volunteer from Ecuador who was
murdered by the Hamas. He was the "Rachel Corrie" whom the ISM does
not want you to know about. Malcolm Kerr, the pro-Arab president of
the American University in Beirut, was murdered by terrorists. The
Reverend Benjamin Weir, an anti-American and anti-Israeli US citizen,
was kidnapped in 1984 by the Hezbollah. When he was released, he used
his Kodak moments in the sun to denounce the US and Israel and to
endorse the Arab "resistance." Among the many other victims of Arab
and Iranian terrorism in the Middle East, one can find numerous other
cheerleaders for terrorism or radical anti-Israel journalists,
including reporters from the BBC and CNN.

Arrigoni had entered Gaza illegally in a so-called "peace flotilla"
that attempt to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, a blockade that is
designed to prevent explosives, rockets and other weapons from
reaching the terrorists — weapons used by the Palestinians to murder
Israeli civilians. Arrigoni's own mother has announced she will be
joining the next boat to attempt to challenge the Israeli siege. We
know some Gazan Salafis who might like to host her.
