Someone just sent me this email.
I have deleted the name and some identifying text.
This could be a hoax, but knowing what I know about Students for Justice in Palestine and the “Urewera 17”, I believe it is genuine.
You need to look closer at XXXXX XXXXXXXX and others in Students for Justice in Palestine who advocate violence against “Zionist” targets, including synagogues and the Israeli consulate. They are very closely linked to the Tuhoe separatists and other anarchist and militant groups. Hamed is a member of SJP and purportedly was training in guerrilla techniques in the Ureweras prior to departing for Palestine. Hameet Sooden, the guy who was held hostage in Iraq, is a SJP member who was just forcibly deported from Israel as a “security threat” while supposedly in transit to Gaza as a “witness” for peace.
XXXXX (an Afghan refugee and graduate student in Politics at Auckland) was supposedly scheduled to begin training in the Ureweras when the raids happened. XXX has repeatedly called for the targeting of Jews and jewish interests in NZ as part of the global jihad campaign, but for some reason is protected by people in AUSA and Politics at Auckland. There are several others in SJP, mostly of Arab extraction, who wish to bring the jihadist struggle closer to home. All of this is well known in student political circles at Auckland, but neither they or the administration dare say anything against SJP or these individuals.
I’d like to thank the person who sent this as it certainly fills in some gaps. Auckland uni has been “jihad” capital NZ for several years now. I don’t know a lot about the scene there these days, so I welcome any information.
You know I will use it.
Key SJP activists at Auckland in recent years have been Omar Hamed (Urewera 17), Joseph Smith, Miriam Pierard, Mustafa Al ZaqZoouq, Sahar Ghumkhor, Zaeem Baksh (also Waikato)and Harmeet Singh Sooden.
I am interested in all these people, plus the activities of other SJP activists in Hamilton and Wellington.
Any connection to the anarchist community, the “Urewera 17”, socialist or Green groups would also be very welcome.
Probably best to email me privately.
