Sheehan is interviewed by Al Jazeera:

Cindy Sheehan, an American activist who was nicknamed the "Peace Mom" by the media for her criticism of the Iraq War, retreated from her public campaigns in 2007.

The death of her son Casey, a US soldier, in a Baghdad battle in 2005 had transformed Sheehan into a public figure in the US.
But she resurfaced in Cairo last week as a member of a delegation from the Muslim American Society which is in Egypt to protest against the military trial of 40 members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
She spoke to Al Jazeera about her journey from peace activist to Congressional candidate, her thoughts on Iraq and her experiences in Egypt. Al Jazeera: You first became famous for your protests against the Iraq war in August 2005, but you have not been an active anti-war figure for a while now. What happened?


Sheehan says she wants to put impeachment
of George Bush back on the agenda [GETTY]

Sheehan: In May 2007, I decided to quit actually being the face of the anti-war movement in America. I quit and I have not gone back to that. When I left the movement I was broke, I was tired, I was sick – literally sick and in pain.

I wanted to just totally be out of the political realm and not have anything to do with it. The establishment that runs our country just disgusted me and I was tired of it. It is very corrupt and I definitely saw that when I was focusing on anti-war activism.

The leaders of both parties work together to keep normal people out of the process. In many ways the Democratic leadership, especially in Congress, has been complicit with George Bush, the US president, in his crimes against humanity.

How can [Democratic Speaker of the House] Nancy Pelosi say unequivocally that water-boarding is torture and that Bush and [Richard] Cheney, the US vice-president, should not only be impeached but they should be charged with war crimes when in 2002 she herself was briefed on water-boarding and shown video of the rendition places where water-boarding happened?
Impeaching George Bush was a popular demand among liberal Americans at one time, but very few people talk about it anymore. Is that what turned you into an activist again?

When George Bush commuted [vice-presidential aide] Scooter Libby’s sentence, the Democrats in Congress didn’t do anything about it. When the Administration said they would not cooperate with subpoenas against [presidential aide] Harriet Myers, the democrats didn’t do anything about it.

That’s what pulled me back into activism. I thought how can they do that? How can they say ‘I’m just not going to come to your stupid trial,’ and no one will say anything about it?

When the Democrats took impeachment off the table, I decided enough was enough. On July 23, 2007, I officially announced that I was running for Congress against Nancy Pelosi.
Why the focus on Nancy Pelosi?

"I don’t think politicians who make political decisions necessarily think about how they are going to affect people and their families."

I decided if Nancy Pelosi wasn’t going to put impeachment on the table then I would run against her.

You can’t take any part of the Constitution off the table, even though they have rendered it almost meaningless between George Bush and Karl Rove. Since they came to power they have institutionalised torture and spying against Americans.

They have passed the Military Commissions Act and just done away with habeas corpus. They have practically rendered it meaningless. That is why I decided to challenge Pelosi for her seat. I always say if you want change you have to vote out the enablers, and Pelosi is the biggest enabler there is. 
If your new focus is on unseating Nancy Pelosi, what are you doing in Egypt?
 

My anti-war work evolved into work for global human rights because I saw the problem was much deeper than just George Bush.

It’s about militarism and violence, globalisation and free trade.

I decided I wanted to do human rights work on behalf of people around the world who have been harmed by US imperialism.

Part of why I am here, also, is to draw attention to the parallels between the military courts here and the same kinds of courts that are being used to try detainees at Guantanamo Bay by the US.

If this becomes the standard for the world, and there is no international outcry, then everyone is in big trouble.

But what does the US have to do with a military trial in Egypt?

Egypt is a major recipient of US foreign aid, and there is no relationship between American aid and human rights.

If we [America] really want to promote democracy in this region then we cannot silence the voices of the Muslim Brotherhood because they’re the moderate voice here and they are the ones who are actually working for democracy.
Do you think your presence in Egypt will have an effect on the trial?

Well, we have been doing a lot of media work since we came to Egypt and we hope this will put pressure on the Egyptian government to treat the prisoners better and to also maybe alleviate their punishment.

Hopefully we will draw some international attention to what is happening here, too, and that will help the situation.
You also went to the National Council of Women in downtown Cairo to request a meeting with Suzanne Mubarak, Egypt’s First Lady. How did that go?

I didn’t really understand a lot of what was going on. There was a lot of yelling in Arabic. They weren’t the right people to get us a meeting with Suzanne Mubarak … I left a letter for Madame Mubarak and they promised that she would see it.

We thought it was important to go there because there are women and children who are being harmed by having their fathers and husbands detained, so I wanted to talk to Suzanne, mother to mother.

We brought along mothers and wives of the detainees and they were actually able to file complaints, and it was really great.
Have you spoken to many of the families of the defendants in the military trial? Have you spoken to many female members of the Brotherhood mother-to-mother?

My conversations with the mothers and children of the detainees have been really emotional. They told me about the hardships [the arrests and trials] have placed on their families, from financial hardships to emotional and physical hardships.

It is very emotional for me because my family has gone through the same things since my son died. It has been really hard for us.

People always say to me, ‘Cindy, why do you always make everything personal?’.

But in the end, everything affects people, whether it’s war or economics or human rights violations. I don’t think politicians who make political decisions necessarily think about how they are going to affect people and their families.

That is why when I meet people who have been harmed by the policies of their own countries, or the policies of my country, it just makes me resolved to work harder to make the world a better place.

Tidbits: It just so happens that while Sheehan was in Egypt, a few members of the Jarrar family were with her, though, they stayed behind the scenes this time. For those of you not familiar with the Jarrar’s; they’re Iraqi/Palestinian terrorists or as Sheehan calls them, "freedom fighters". The very same freedom fighters that killed her soldier son.

Of the many outrages Cindy Sheehan has perpetrated since using her heroic son’s coffin as a pole-vault into national stardom, none has gotten less laudatory press than her recent intervention on behalf of 40 imprisoned members of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. A typical headline adorning the Associated Press story declared, “Cindy Sheehan in Egypt for Islamists.” Yet none of this coverage – which has changed toned markedly since she decided to run against the Democratic Speaker of the House – has exposed the Brotherhood’s extremist ideology, its violent history – or the fact that MB members have called the terrorists who killed U.S. soldiers like Casey Sheehan “heroic.”

The elder Sheehan took to Egypt last week as part of a leftist contingent to insist the Egyptian government free a handful of Brotherhood members.  As AP recorded, “According to the Brotherhood, 3,245 members of their organization were arrested in 2007.” Some 40 of that number are on trial. The trial began a year ago against two-scores of its members, including its third most prominent member, Khayrat el-Shater (its “chief strategist and financier”), for money laundering – and terrorism. 

Nonetheless, Sheehan felt obligated to give the MB an early Valentine’s Day hug, penning a letter to Egyptian first lady Suzanne Mubarak. The second sentence denounced “the illegal and immoral U.S. occupation of Iraq.”  She continued, presenting three demands: Egypt must financially support MB family members of these “political prisoners,” protest any future harm to MB family members, and complete “the return of the personal belongings (including money and jewelry) of the families involved.”

Of course, such money could be immediately put to use in terrorism, as many in Egypt fear.

Yet Sheehan joined former U.S. Congressman Walter Fauntroy, leftist agitator Mahdi Bray, and her own campaign manager, Tiffany Burns, in a Valentine’s vigil against the Brotherhood’s military trial. Walter E. Fauntroy served as Washington, D.C.’s non-voting Congressman for some 20 years in the House of Representatives, becoming a founding member and former chairman of the far-Left Congressional Black Caucus. Meanwhile, this makes Mahdi Bray’s second trip to Egypt in solidarity with the Muslim Brotherhood. Bray is a former SDS radical before converting to Islam and becoming a founding member of Sami al-Arian’s National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom. Bray’s MAS Freedom Foundation is an off-shoot of the Muslim American Society, itself founded by MB members. More than organizational ties, the group shares a common ideology and bloodlust with the MB. Bray once brayed, “Let’s all go into jihad, and throw stones at the face of the Jews.

This rhetorical and ideological hatred is the Brotherhood’s stock-in-trade. Robert Spencer has called the Muslim Brotherhood “the parent organization of Hamas and al-Qaeda.” Founded 80 years ago by Hasan al-Banna, the MB seeks a worldwide Islamic caliphate that would enforce Shari’a law – the definition of Islamofascism.

Brotherhood members had been in de facto war against the state of Egypt since Islamist theoretician Sayyid Qutb indicted Gamal Abdel Nasser’s government as “the Party of Satan.” (Nasser executed Qutb in 1966). Yet his influence lived on through members like Ayman al-Zawahiri, the number two man in al-Qaeda, and many other anti-Muslim terrorists. Anwar Sadat brought MB out of the wilderness, and it now competes for parliamentary seats as part of the “Islamic Alliance.” Although the organization is formally banned by the secular-leaning Hosni Mubarak regime, its candidates often run as “independents” declaring, “Islam is the solution.”

Such Islamist ends did not pacify its most radical detractors. Zawahiri and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi attacked the MB for taking part in parliamentary elections in 2005, viewing any trifling with democracy as idolatry. Zarqawi asked, “How can anyone choose any other path but that of jihad? I appeal to the Islamic party: Abandon this strategy which is a losing one for Sunnis.”  Brotherhood members won 80 of some 150 elections it chose to contest and now hold 20 percent of parliamentary seats.

However, despite media criticism of Sheehan’s role, most coverage has painted the Brotherhood as a “progressive,” pro-democracy party oppressed by fascistic U.S. allies. John Walsh of the Harvard International Review gushes, “Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood provides an example of the goals and methods of centrist Islamism.” Among its achievements, the cadre “has established a network of social services in neighborhoods and villages,” which fills “gaps in government services.”

Two fellow academics agreed in The Boston Globe. Joshua Stacher, who teaches history at the American University in Cairo, and Samer Shehata, who teaches Arab Studies at Georgetown University, wrote, “Unlike other Islamist organizations, such as Hamas or Hezbollah, the Brotherhood has no armed wing, and neither the U.S. Department of State nor the European Union considers it a terrorist group.”

Similarly, the New York Times coos that the MB “helped establish a local health insurance system…During Ramadan, [a member’s] charitable organization distributes free food.” It praises “the [Egyptian MB] national platform with its typically populist positions.” The Times charts these populist crowd-pleasers’ totalitarian trajectory – only to excuse it. “Turning Egypt into an Islamic state is an interim goal along the way to recreating the Islamic empire, or caliphate, of 1,000 years ago,” it reports. But not to worry: this would resemble “something like the European Union.”

Well, something like the European Union if it cut off people’s hands.

The Council on Foreign Relations – by no means a conservative institution – is a bit more open: “Strengthening the role of Islamic law, or Shari’a, is at the center of the Muslim Brotherhood’s identity as an organization, both in Egypt and among the group’s many offshoots throughout the Muslim world.”  

…Including the Muslim Brotherhood’s affiliate in Iraq, where the MB’s parliamentary representation, the Iraqi Islamic Party, has heaped praise upon the “heroic Iraqi resistance.” This encomium encompasses whomever killed Casey Sheehan, the event Cindy exploited to begin her perpetual revolution-and-media-whoredom.

Cindy Sheehan thinks so little of her son that she is willing to join forces with the movement whose extremist ideology spawned the organization that killed him and whose offshoot holds his killers up as role models.

The Muslim Brotherhoods continued radicalism belies the prophecy of the founder’s youngest brother, 85-year-old Gamal al-Banna. Gamal recently said, “The real test of the Brotherhood is to let it enter politics. They will be in a different situation when they confront the necessities of ruling, and there are only two possible outcomes. They will have to compromise or fail.” This was precisely what the intelligentsia said about Hamas’ electoral victory in Palestine. Instead, Hamas instigated a brutal civil war against Fatah, which resulted in the strange sight of Palestinians fleeing for refuge into Israel in order to escape fellow Palestinian Muslims.

Whenever Islamists take power, they engage, not in community building and progressive anti-poverty programs, but in jihad against all who oppose them – including, sometimes before all others, their fellow Muslims. This is the process Sheehan wished to accelerate with her protest last week.

To be fair, this was Sheehan’s second trip in which she met with those who supported the killing of her son, undertaken putatively to honor Casey Sheehan. In August 2006, she joined Tom Hayden, Medea Benjamin, and a dozen Code Pink activists on a trek to Jordan to meet with Iraqi pro-terrorist leaders. On the trip, she met with members of the Iraqi parliament, including Sheikh Ahmad al-Kubaysi, who once asserted that foreign jihadists like those who killed Casey Sheehan “are guaranteed Paradise.”  The group also pressed the flesh with Saleh al-Mutlaq, leader of the Iraq National Dialogue Front, who wrote,terrorists the honorable national resistance movements…we cannot give peace.

If her exploitation of her son’s death during her hate-filled protest in the United States, or her trip to buss Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, did not convince the national media of her opportunism, nothing will. Yet only when she embraces those who justify her son’s murder can one grasp the full breadth of her betrayal, of her son and her country.

 CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Anti-U.S. military activist Cindy Sheehan joined a protest Wednesday seeking the support of Egypt’s first lady in ending a military trial of members of the country’s largest Islamic terrorist organization.

Under the watchful eyes of dozens of black-clad and helmeted anti-riot police, some 50 heavily veiled wives and children of 40 senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood detained for the past year, gathered in front of the headquarters of first lady Suzanne Mubarak’s National Council Women carrying banners calling for their release.

"I am here to protest the trial of civilians in front of a military tribunal as this is a violation to international law," said Sheehan, who gained fame in the U.S. for her sit-in outside President Bush’s Texas ranch following the death of her son in Iraq.

"As a mother of a son who was killed in the war, I presented a letter to Ms. Suzanne Mubarak to realize how those women and children are suffering."

The street protest was rare in Egypt where authorities ban most signs of public dissent.

One woman carried a sleeping infant in her arms along with a poster reading "Father, I miss you."

In December 2006, the government engaged in a wide-ranging crackdown against the Brotherhood, the country’s largest opposition force — which holds one-fifth of the seats in the parliament — targeting in particular businessmen known to financially support the group.

In February 2007, President Hosni Mubarak ordered 40 of the organization’s members to be tried by a military tribunal on charges of money laundering and terrorism. The court’s verdict is expected Feb. 26.

According to the Brotherhood, 3,245 members of their organization were arrested in 2007.

 By Marxist Cindy Sheehan

Once upon a time in a land called California, there was born a beautiful baby named Casey.

Casey’s mom and dad knew from the minute he was born that he was a very special baby. He had dark hazel eyes that seemed to penetrate into the hearts of people who met his intense gaze. He was a cheerful baby that grew into a cheerful, yet shy boy.

Casey loved baseball, video games and playing make believe games with his younger siblings. He was a loving and fun big brother to his sisters and brother. Casey grew close with each sibling in different ways. His bright and mature sister, Carly, was his confidant and closest mischief maker. With his brother, Andy, Casey would wrestle and play endless video games, huddled closely on the floor in front of the TV set. Casey would carry his youngest sister, Janey (the baby) to bed each night and tell her a bedtime story, kiss her goodnight and make sure there were no monsters in her closet.

Casey also loved his faith and was devoted to the Catholic Church. The young boy Casey became an Altar Server when he was eight and continued that ministry until he graduated from high school. Casey never missed mass, and many around him were sure he would someday be a priest.

Although quiet and thoughtful, Casey had a very good sense of humor—long funny stories were not his forte, but he was adept at one-line zingers that would often surprise and delight his mom.

One day in the land of California, an emissary from the Kingdom’s Army knocked on Casey’s door and beguiled him (through a spell of broken promises of riches, adventure and learning,) to join the Army of the Kingdom. One very terrible day, a few years later, the evil Ruler of the Kingdom, George III, sent Casey off to a wicked war and Casey was killed trying to save the lives of fellow members of the Army of the Kingdom.

Casey did not live happily every after.

Casey’s mom and dad and brother and sisters and many other relatives and friends miss him so much and long for his “happily ever afters.”

Once upon the same time in the land of California, there was a Ruler in the Caste of the Democrats named Nancy Pelosi. She told Casey’s mom to her face that she was very sorry for Casey dying and that she was doing everything she could to stop other Casey’s from meeting the same fate. Years later, Casey’s mom found out that this Pelosi wench knew all along what the evil Ruler George III was up to when he threw innocent people into torture chambers. The Pelosi wench knew that torture would lead to the deaths of many Caseys, but she did not use her power to stop this. Casey’s mom finally understood why the Pelosi wench did not use her legal force to stop the evil Ruler George III or his war: she was and is complicit in the crimes of the Kingdom.

This sad tale is told because the Rulers of the Kingdom, in both Castes, misused Casey and thousands of others as pawns in their foul game of global domination.

If the “peasants” in the Kingdom of George and Nancy do not wake up and rise up to stop the oppression and murder by the evil rulers, no one (except the evil Rulers and their consorts) will live happily ever after.

Via Radar:

Hollow gestures of faux-environmentalism are nothing new. (Remember strong man and global warming crusader Jann Wenner shuttling to and from his European vacation home on a private jet?) But for sheer hot air, NBC’s current community service project, "Green is Universal," takes the cake.

The week-long initiative, which kicked off yesterday, will feature 150 hours of programming aimed at "entertaining, informing, and empowering Americans to lead greener lives." Matt Lauer will report live from the Arctic Circle in Greenland. Al Roker will be investigating "cloud forests" 7,000 feet above sea level in Ecuador (one hopes there’s enough oxygen to keep him huffing). Ann Curry will look even more frigid than usual filing from Antarctica.

It all has the look and feel of a rather costly energy-burning publicity stunt. During the half-time show of yesterday’s Eagles/Cowboys game Sunday, a candlelit Bob Costas urged viewers to turn off unnecessary lights in their homes as a way to cut down on carbon emissions. Presumably, NBC (owned by General Electric, mind you) was unable to find a way to use candles to power the gleaming "Toyota" ads or any of the myriad high-definition monitors that helped illuminate the studio in lieu of light bulbs.

Then, of course, there’s the astronomically large carbon footprint caused by flying entire television crews to remote locations, housing them, and keeping them warm—as well as the costs associated with lighting and producing usable content when it’s pitch black and negative 50 degrees outside. But, hey, Matt Lauer delivering an impassioned global warming monologue as he stands next to an igloo flanked by sled dogs is probably very good for ratings!

Sheehan’s copious amount of stupidity

 sheehan_peace1.jpg

GRANVILLE OHIO - If Denison students take Cindy Sheehan’s words to heart, they might begin shopping at thrift stores, visiting sick children and spending time with homeless people in Columbus.

When Sheehan spoke Thursday to a packed Slayter Hall Auditorium on the Denison University campus, it was to encourage her audience that one person can make a difference, she said.

"To make the world a better place, you don’t have to look farther than your backyard," she said.

Her appearance at Denison marked the keynote speech in the university’s Laura C. Harris Symposium, sponsored by the Department of Women’s Studies.

Sheehan’s address built on what she called several pillars of "corporal works of mercy" established by Jesus in the New Testament of the Bible:

Feed the hungry. Clothe the naked. Free the captives.

"You don’t have to go camp out in front of President Bush’s home in Crawford, Texas," she said. "In fact, I don’t recommend it. It’s not a really great place to camp in August."

But she encouraged students to think about others in the course of their daily lives.

"You’d be amazed how reforming your own paradigm can reform the larger paradigm," she said.

Although Sheehan mentioned the Iraq war throughout her speech, the address gravitated away from politics until the closing question-answer session.

In it, she spoke about her opposition to what she deemed the "Mom-apple-pie-country syndrome," arguing that Americans should not be willing "give up our children so the corporate elite" can make money off the war.

"If college was free," Sheehan said, "why … would anybody go into the Army? Or the Marines?"

The recruitment issue was one that stuck out for Denison senior Stephanie Hoover.

"I thought it was important that she emphasized the class issues at stake in recruiting," Hoover said.

Denison senior Larken Kenuk, who had eaten lunch with Sheehan earlier Thursday, said she enjoyed the presentation and its theme.

"Putting all human beings on the same level, I think, is very important," Kenuk said.

WASHINGTON —  A bench warrant was issued Thursday for anti-US military activist Cindy Sheehan, who did not appear for arraignment Thursday in a Washington, D.C., courtroom to face charges related to her Sept. 10 disorderly conduct arrest at the Capitol.

District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Michael McCarthy issued the order to Sheehan around noon, a court spokeswoman said. The warrant means she is to be taken into custody and brought before the court. She also faces one count of unlawful assembly.

Sheehan’s arrest came as a tense hearing on the Iraq war underway. Gen. David Petraeus was giving his highly anticipated report to the House Armed Services Committee, and Sheehan was taken into custody just outside the hearing room.

Sheehan was among several protesters at the hearing and was arrested alongside her sister, Dee Dee Miller. Both were charged with disorderly conduct.

This what Sheehan had to say about Gen. Petraeus:

"General Betray-Us has not only betrayed America and his oath of service, but he has betrayed the very troops he should care about more than being an “ass-kissing little chicken-shit” to a Commander in Chief who has spent years betraying the troops".

It would seem that the only "chicken-shit" here is Cindylou– who was too "chicken-shit" to appear in court.

Anti-US military Protesters Code Pink Flock to Sen. Byrd at Hearing
The chamber’s oldest member finds a cheering chorus in Code Pink

Via the leftist rag Common Dreams:

WASHINGTON — After 4 1/2 years of combat and hundreds of billions of dollars in funding, the debate over the Iraq war — at least on Wednesday — came down to two dozen people dressed in fluorescent pink and the oldest member of the U.S. Senate.0927 05

Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.), who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee and turns 90 in November, denounced President Bush and vowed not to rubber-stamp the administration’s request for nearly $200 billion more in war spending. Cheering loudly were war protesters from the group Code Pink, now a fixture at every Washington hearing even tangentially related to Iraq.

“Are we really seeking progress toward a stable, secured Iraq? Are we?” demanded Byrd.

“No!” shouted protesters.

“What do we mean when we say, ‘Support the troops?’ ” Byrd continued.

“Bring them home!” one Code Pink member shouted.

On went the call-and-response, protesters shouting approval as Byrd preached.

“In the fifth year of this terrible, misguided conflict, this senator — yeah, this man from the hill country — believes that it is time for a thorough evaluation of the Bush war in Iraq,” he said.

“Amen,” shouted his chorus.

As he finished, the Code Pink members rose in applause. “That is what a Democrat looks like,” shouted one.

Most Democratic lawmakers seem uneasy with Code Pink. Its name mocks the Bush administration’s color-coded terrorism alert system, and members frequently get arrested in protests.

But the love between Byrd and the Code Pinkers did not last. Curiously, it was not war slogans that changed things, but the issue of gays in the military. Marine Gen. Peter Pace, outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked about his comments in March that homosexuality was immoral.

Pace said the law known as “don’t ask, don’t tell” allowed gays to serve in the military. But he reasserted his belief that homosexuality was “counter to God’s law.”

Members of Code Pink unleashed a torrent of protest. Byrd pounded his gavel and ordered the removal of the protesters who had applauded him a mere 90 minutes earlier.

Islamists: Sheehan ‘gives us hope’ U.S. will change Mideast policies

STFUsheehan111.jpg
Muslim terrorist leaders are "thankful" for the efforts of activist and congressional candidate Cindy Sheehan, stating in a new book Sheehan’s anti-Iraq war activities and her statements against President Bush "give us hope" the U.S. will change its Mideast policies.

"You [Sheehan] give us hope and you show us that there are different Americans than those whom we know," stated Ramadan Adassi, chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group in the West Bank’s Anskar Refugee Camp.

"This sincere woman says what we’ve been saying all these last years – Saddam never threatened America or its security. Now Iraq is being decimated and America is losing. Voices like Sheehan’s show things can change," said Adassi.

Adassi and other terror leaders were quoted sounding off about Sheehan in the recently released "Schmoozing with Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land Jihadists Reveal their Global Plans – to a Jew!," by author and WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein.

Adassi’s Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades took responsibility, along with the Islamic Jihad terror group, for every suicide bombing in Israel the past three years. It also carried out scores of fatal shootings and hundreds of rocket attacks against Jewish population centers.

According to "Schmoozing with Terrorists," jihad leaders interviewed about Sheehan were thankful for the anti-war activist’s activities.

Klein states in his book he read to the terrorists quotes from the outspoken mother of fallen U.S. Army specialist Casey Sheehan. Among the quotes highlighted for the terrorists were statements calling Bush "the biggest terrorist in the world" and "worse than Osama bin Laden," and Sheehan’s labeling of Iraqi insurgents multiple times as "freedom fighters."

Terrorist: ‘I thank Sheehan from the deep of my heart’

Palestinian terrorist leaders were elated to hear Sheehan blamed the Iraq war on Israel, according to Klein.

In a letter to ABC News’ "Nightline" published on the Internet, Sheehan wrote: "Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a neo-con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the army to protect America, not Israel."

Responding in "Schmoozing," Ala Senakreh, overall West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, stated:

"I agree with her completely and thank her from deep in my heart when she dares to tell the Americans that their children are killed for the interests of Israel.

"The American security has nothing to do with the atrocities in Iraq and in Palestine. I tell this noble mother that American soldiers and Israeli soldiers receive common training and share their experience in how to turn these atrocities even more cruel. You are losing your sons not for a better life for you, but for Israeli interests," stated Senakreh.

Abu Hamed, leader of the Al Aqsa Brigades in the northern Gaza Strip, urged Americans to listen to Sheehan.

"I hope that all the Americans will understand what this great mother understood. We hope you do not consider this mother as a humanitarian case who speaks from her own pain, because she is saying the truth. I hope you will take her as a good example."

Sheehan first attracted international news media attention in August 2005 for her extended antiwar demonstration at a makeshift protest camp she erected about three miles outside Bush’s Texas ranch.

Sheehan has since organized multiple tours and rallies against the Iraq war, was arrested for protesting at Bush’s May 2007 State of the Union Address, spoke out in Europe and South America and has made statements some critics say defend jihad.

In May, Sheehan stated she would officially end her anti-Iraq war activism, but she resumed her efforts in July. Last week, Sheehan spoke at an anti-war protest in Washington and was arrested in a House office building for allegedly interrupting the congressional testimony of Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of the Multi-National Force in Iraq.

Sheehan last month announced her candidacy as an independent for California’s eighth Congressional district against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

 Via FR:

Anti-US military activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Monday in or near the hearing room where General David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker are testifying on the situation in Iraq, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.

Four anti-US military protesters were arrested for disorderly conduct. One of them, who was not named, is being taken to George Washington Hospital “due to complaint of injury” is also charged with assault on a police officer.

According to the information from the Capitol Police, Sheehan and the other three were shouting in a hallway.

So, this makes Sheehan’s 9th arrest? It ain’t easy being the embodiment of peace, love, harmony, joy, and all that’s right in this world. Wasn’t it Sheehan who said or rather quoted some Buddhist monk that we must never raise our voices in anger and live in peaceful kumbahjahjah? Why yes, yes I do believe it was.

"In a speech I delivered at the Riverside Church in NYC on the one year anniversary of Casey’s death, which was also the 37 th anniversary of MLK, Jr’s death, I said: We must all do one thing for peace each day. I now know that is not enough. We must live peace and embody peace if we want peace on earth. Our entire lives must be for peace. Not just one activity a day.

Every step is peace.

That was the theme for today’s walk in Mac Arthur Park. Tha^y reminded us to be in the "present" and take every step in peace and know that we are walking on the earth in peace. He lovingly admonished the hundreds of people who came to hear his witness to do everything in peace: eat, walk, talk, breathe, sleep, work, play, etc. No yelling, no angry words, no harsh statements. This admonishment struck me to the bone because I have been so "strident" in my criticism of the Bushies in their quest for power, greed, and destruction. There must be a better way now if we truly want our country to live in eternal peace and not eternal war.

I have arrived. I am home.

This was the first sign we passed as we started on our walk. Tha^y told us we should say those phrases with every other step. I have arrived. Every second we live is a new arriving in the present. I see so much conflict and struggle in our world because we don’t live in this second. We are worried about the next second and mourning the past second. Camp Casey taught me to live each moment in the arrival moment. One of the reasons I have been able to remain so calm in the face of an onslaught of troubles and evil is because I realized in Camp Casey that I could not struggle against the current of my life and change my destiny any more than I could bring my son back from the land of the dead. Each second of each day is our precious arrival and we should honor each moment. Another holy man, Jesus Christ said: Why worry about tomorrow? Today has enough worries of its own.

I am home."

Cindy Sheehan–I Have Arrived, I Am Home

——–

"In Iraq, every citizen has been personally touched and the American occupation is a living, fire-breathing, palpable entity that has intruded its imperialistic self into every aspect of their daily lives".

"It is up to we the people to care more about humanity and democracy than either the reds or the blues and it is mandatory that we mount campaigns to defeat the pigs and their masters: the war machine".

Cindy Sheehan, Pigs of War

Sheehan’s latest sagacious scholarly rant or rather her ghost writer’s latest sagacious scholarly rant equates anyone who works for the government as a war pig. That would include of course G.I.’s. Apparently there are two types of porkers, red and blue. Wait, back up a minute. Isn’t Sheehan running for a job in the pig sty? Hmm… Anyway, where was I? Oh, according to Cindy who’s quoting a congresswoman she won’t name; “The red pigs want to keep the war going because they feed out of the trough of carnage and the blue pigs want to keep it going for votes!”  Sheehan goes on to say that war pigs are merely war profiteers. Uh, back up again. Would that be like when Sheehan bought Camp Casey with the death gratuity from her soldier son and sold Camp Casey for a profit? Or perhaps when she bought that new V.W. bug that she said she had always wanted but could never afford, that is, until she received her soldier son’s death gratuity? Is that what she means by a profiteering war pig?

Anyway, Sheehan and her ghost writer try to cover-up their hatred for the “Imperial Storm Troops” by occasionally throwing in a few “nice” adjectives. They’re not fooling anyone. Reading her sagacious scholarly rants in whole, Sheehan makes it quite clear her distain for all things US military. Or should I say, just like the Muslims, all things pork.

Grieving Marxist Mommy and Moral Authority Cindy Sheehan at Camp Casey

Presidential candidate insurgent elf Dennis Kucinich and his amazon wife Elizabeth will march with insurgent beast Cindy Sheehan in Kennebunkport, Maine. 

They’ll march two miles to the Bush family compound on Walker’s Point, or as close as they can get. Sheehan will be setting up Camp Casey Part Deux and the Arredonsos will be setting up a camp Alex.

President Bush will be in Crawford, Texas, the White House says.

The pro insurgent march will start at noon (E.T.) today.
