Arabs Murder ISM Activist, ISM Silent

An Arab activist for the Israel-hating International Solidarity Movement (ISM) was murdered by the Islamic Jihad terror gang this past week, but the ISM has not issued a condemnation of the act. Akram Ibrahim Abu Sba, a member of the ISM "regional committee Jenin" was killed by members of Islamic Jihad in Jenin.

The ISM is an organization of American, Israeli and Arab volunteers which routinely interferes with IDF activities in Judea and Samaria, besides engaging in vandalism against Jews. In the past, when ISM activists Tom Hurndall and Rachel Corrie were mistakenly killed by the IDF, the organization launched massive media and legal campaigns against the IDF, which it accused of cold blooded murder.

According to the ISM website, "Akram was killed on duty, when he tried to smooth tensions between members of Palestinian security forces and members of Islamic Jihad." The ISM website relates how an incident between Palestinian Authority terrorists and Islamic Jihad thugs ended with Abu Sba being shot twice in the chest and dying.
