This comment came through with more info on the militant Auckland University group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).
The commentor is replying to Asher Goldman, an anti Zionist Jew, anarchist and close associate of several of those arrested in the October 15th 2007 anti-terror raids.
Omar, refers to Omar Hamed, a leading SJP member, anarcho-communist and October 15th arrestee.
Sooden refers to Harmeet Singh Sooden, an SJP member, famous for being held hostage in Iraq in 2006 and later being expelled from Israel.
I have blanked out the name of the woman referred to.
Thanks Akbar and friends, keep em coming.
Asher protests too much or has no clue what happens inside AUSA and Student Space at Auckland Uni. Hamed may not yet have traveled to Palestine but was in the habit of talking about having to train up in armed resistance techniques prior to traveling there. He is the International Affairs Officer for AUSA and was the one behind the bounty offer for a citizens arrest of Condoleeza Rice for “war crimes” when she came through NZ.
Sooden explicitly stated that his “mission” in Iraq was to confront Zionist and US occupation, and was subsequently deported from Israel as a security threat (the Israelis know something about security threats).
The Israeli consulate in Wellington was only recently upgraded to embassy status and there is, presumably, an Israeli consulate in Auckland–both targets of the SJP militants.
XXXXX may have been “friendly” to Asher in spite of his being a Jew, but that means nothing as she is notorious for her two-faced and underhanded tactics. Plus, to deny that she has spoken of targeting Jews in general (as opposed to just Zionists) is both false and trivialises the fact that she advocates acts of violence against NZ citizens that she deems as enemies.
In fact, as a militant Sunni she has ranted against Shiia Muslims as “almost” as bad as Jews and Christians and had, until the raids, expressed interest in joining the training camps. Her orchestration of several other well known events against perceived enemies is a matter of record that cannot be denied. One only needs to look at her blog and her comments (under the pseudonym “anti-flag”) on various leftist blogs to see what her agenda is.
As for the others Trevor mentions, some, like Miriam Pierard, have abandoned SJP because of their increasingly extremism. New names, mostly Arab, have been added and include a number of foreign students as well as locals of Arab/Iranian/Indian and Pakistani extraction.
Ask around student activist circles at Auckland Uni and the Islamo-marxist orientation of these people will be brought up quickly. Which raises the question as to whether Asher is a member of this circle or just a tool.
It almost seems that Tame Iti’s Urewera taining camps were an open secret around Auckland Uni before the police raids. Can anyone else confirm this?
This connection between SJP and the “Urewera 17” merits further research.
