Behind the Headlines
by Justin Raimondo

Have you ever been targeted by terrorists? I have …

I couldn’t help but notice the number of hits coming from an ezboard site, where people post messages and a kind of conversation in cyberspace ensues. Our hit report enables me to click on the url and find out the source of the hits – and, in this case, I was in for a surprise. For this is, the site of "the soldiers of Hindutva," and they’re after somebody – namely, me.

If you want a look inside the twisted violent mind of a Hindu-fascist (and a number of apparently Israeli allies) then check out the following dialogue between someone who calls himself "Ally of Hindus" and friends:

Ally of Hindus: "This little boy deserves to have his butt whipped. I am sick of this loudmouth know-it-all Justin Raimondo and his holier-than-thou acts. He has for a long time attacked American conservatives and Zionism and now he is attacking Hindutva. Read this fool's article:

If there is any way you folks can find to make this buffoon's life into a veritable hell, please do it."

This garners a response from one Bishma, who is described as "H.U. Lieutenant, Chicago (U.S.):

"This idiot has collected lies from Islamic websites and unprofessionally pasted them on to this article without checking their legitimacy. I'm going to email this article to the RSS and let them take care of this b******t legally. Maybe after he gets sued he might see some sense."

Bishma and "Ally of Hindus" go back and forth about the alleged "lies" told by me in my column, and the former – after posting a photo of me, presumably for identification purposes -- composes an email to Hindu-fascist Headquarters urging them to sue us for – sacrilege, I guess. Then another thug enters the conversation, one "Rack Kach" – presumably a supporter of the Israeli Kach movement, a violent group of Jewish fundamentalists founded by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, who avers:

"What an @#%$ Read the archive stories... every single Israel-related article is made up of European anti-semitism and Palestinian propaganda. I assume the same is true regarding the India articles. Hehe... he calls Netanyahu an ‘ultra-rightist.’ I call him [Netanyahu] a ‘lying sack of dirt.’"

At this point, Trishul, identified as the "Moderator," puts in his two cents:

"[Raimondo] has quoted Biju Matthews. A person who belongs on the HU Black List as a criminal. B.M, this pig of a person always writes against Hindutva."

Ah yes, the "Black List," maintained on this site as a looong list of people who, it seems, deserve some sort of retribution: as to exactly what kind, the drawing of a hangman’s noose at the top of a page dripping with blood leaves nothing to the imagination. Getting back to our Hindu "friends" – there is a little debate on the merits of suing me, and then this sinister bit of dialogue from Rack Kach:

"After reading Ran Hacohen's "letter from Israel" I understand why Itamar Ben Gavir beat him up two years ago in Tel Aviv."

Ally of Hindus: "[ columnist] Ran HaCohen got beat up??? Tell me more, Rack Kach. This is GOOD."

Rack Kach: "Ally, have you ever heard of Itamar Ben-Gavir? He is one of the most extremist Kachniks around. When Rabin was Prime Minister he would call his office pretending to be a reporter, get Rabin's plans for the day, and everywhere that Rabin went there would be 50+ people yelling ‘Rabin is a murderer, Rabin is a Nazi, Rabin is a traitor.’ In the famous 1995 demonstration in Kikar Zion he led about 100 people to the Prime Minister's official residence, and after overwhelming police they tried to climb over the fence surrounding the house. Before the vote on Oslo II he led a gang that attacked Ben-Eliezer's car when he was in it, on his way to vote in the Knesset. Ben-Gavir broke the Mercedes symbol off his car. Later he sent it to him in the mail with a note, ‘we did this to your car, we can do this to you too.’ Anyway, two years ago Ran Hacohen was going to lecture in Tel Aviv about why Israel should give the Golan back to Syria. There was a right-wing demonstration outside the lecture hall, and when Hacohen showed up Itamar yelled "traitor!" and ran up to him, punched him in the face and kicked him a few times when Hacohen was on the ground before he was arrested."

Ally of Hindus says Mr. Ben Gavir "sounds like a real roughneck" and even speculates that he could be "dangerous," and then declares:

"But Ran HaCohen is no better. Self hating Jew that he is. He deserved what he got, the little putz."

Life in the Age of Terrorism isn’t all about Al Qaeda. Irv Rubin, the fuehrer of the American affiliate of Kach -- known as the Jewish Defense League -- was recently busted, along with a co-conspirator, for plotting to bomb a mosque in Southern California. Rubin has a long history of violence, boasting that he’s been arrested more than 40 times.

In a twist of irony so bitter that it would be funny if it weren’t so utterly crazed, he was recruited by the Libertarian Party, which touted his membership in the LP as a great triumph. I warned that Rubin was a ticking time bomb, and, not long after, Rubin and an associate were arrested and charged with planning terrorist acts.

That the gangsters who hailed the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin are teaming up with the murderers of Gandhi should come as no surprise. That they are operating freely, openly threatening people on the internet, should also hardly come as a shock.

It has come to the point where an American citizen is not safe in his own country, exercising his right to free speech, without being targeted by foreigners (I’ll bet none of these people are US citizens) and threatened with violence. These aliens have no place in American society: they cannot understand the nature of a free society, and are inherently hostile to the principles of liberalism and open debate. Can it be that the "Army of Hindutva" – with their "hit list," their bloodlust, and their threats – is of no or little concern to US law enforcement? It’s an outrage that these foreign devils are allowed to run rampant – as long as they don’t have Arab surnames.

Where oh where is the Immigration and Naturalization Service, not to mention the FBI, when we really need them? Okay guys, now you have the right to surf the internet, and do "research" – so let’s get moving! In a rational society, these Thuggees and their nutball Israeli friends would be tracked down and deported back to the Third World hellholes from whence they came.
