Homegrown Jihad: Behind the video

Alabama Liberation Front on that video of Hezbollah’s pre-teen American cheerleaders:

I arrived late at the protest, and there was already a big crowd around the stage. Some guy was on stage ranting about how Nasrallah is a latter-day George Washington (yes, we all remember how Washington ordered his army to randomly slaughter innocent civilians).

It was crowded, I couldn’t get a good camera angle, and I quickly tired of standing in the August sun. So I headed over toward some shade trees north of the stage. That was where I saw the little girls. They were posing with their protest signs while a woman (a relative?) took a photo with a digital camera. The woman then moved over to show a preview of the photo to the girls, and I stepped closer to try to get a clearer view of the girls’ signs. When the girls noticed my camcorder, they spontaneously began the chants you see on the video clip.

The rest–including a Beatles quote from Lennon’s pre-Plastic Ono days–is here.

UCLA researcher vows to stop using animals

A University of California-Los Angeles professor has vowed to stop experimenting on animals as a result of intimidation pressure from animal rights terrorists activists, UCLA officials and one activist group said.

Dario Ringach, an associate professor of neuroscience, sent an e-mail to the Animal Liberation Front on Tuesday titled, “You win,” promising to stop his animal testing, according to a statement released by the Animal Liberation Press Office.

University spokeswoman Judy Lin confirmed that Ringach did send the e-mail, but said there was no indication that he planned to leave the university.

The Animal Liberation Front also claimed responsibility for the June attempted firebombing of faculty member Lynn Fairbanks’ home. The group had accused Fairbanks of killing primates for experimentation purposes. UCLA officials denied the accusation.

The statement released by the Animal Liberation Press Office said Ringach did not give a specific reason for his decision, but did ask that animal rights groups leave his family alone.

These groups have been harassing him and visiting his neighbors for a couple of years, and he does have small children,” Lin said.

Why are these domestic terrorists allowed to operate with impunity on American soil?

This news must’ve emboldened participants at ALF’s conference in DC yesterday.
