MPACUK: BUSTED: How A Single Pro-Palestintian Female Took On The FBI

Published

What is interesting is how the Zionist lobby had called the FBI after watching the demo and told them she was a threat. This is how they abuse the system to harass us. Never breaking the law, simply using it for their own unethical ends.

Here is how it was reported:

“The Joint Terrorism Task Force Division of the FBI Visits an Austin Peace Activist to Question About Pre-Crimes

On April 21, 2010, two agents of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) came to my house to talk to me, a part-time peace volunteer for Palestine.”

Shocked at getting a call from the FBI for nothing more than attending a rally for Palestine, this woman decided to record the conversation. Brilliant!

    Smart of her to record the interview, but she was being incredibly rude and inappropriately venting out her frustrations at the wrong people.

    Wow, there is just so much misinformation and just bad information in this “article”:

    1) Where are the nefarious tentacles of the “Zionist Lobby” even mentioned in this?

    2) “The right to remain silent” is a fifth amendment right; not a first amendment right.

    3) I think she got on their “ask her a few questions to fill out the forms” list is that she, admittedly, is part of some racist, extremist groups (Free Palestine).

    Next time I need to go to a hospital in Texas I’m going to make sure my nursing (and physician staff) aren’t as ignorant, maleducated, and racist as this “lady”.

    It was so ironic that they kept asking her if she knew about anyone destroying property or causing harm to other people (Israel)!

      exactly.. i kept wishing she’d say that

      but the video is indeed another frightening example of how the israel foot soldiers are lurking everywhere… they will root out any opposition to the hasbara and try to silence their opponent. Only the people who have a lot to hide and no moral ground to have a chance at winning a real debate, do this. And Israel perfectly fits this description.

      In fact, look at any country where the press is not following Israel’s narrative and the anti-Israel sentiment is proportionally very high. Feed people truth and Israel loses. Demonstrations are one avenue for feeding truth and so it must be silenced.

    As Salaam Alaikum brothers, I’m confused as to how she knows that some Zionist called the FBI on her. I think it’s good that she’s showing people what their Constitutional rights are, but I feel like she was being overly confrontational to the agents.

    I do agree the lady was being over-confrontational with the two FBI Officers.
    They were just doing their job.
    Incidentally, there are instances where FBI Officers will knock at the door and they will be shot on the spot, so they DO have a very difficult and dangerous job.

    On the other hand, I do not understand why they should be sent to interrogate a participant to a protest, once the protest was over and the participant had even left and returned home… she had not participated in any violent action, had she ?

    The only reason why the FBI should go and interrogate her was understated intimidation.
    Has the FBI ever interrogated the participants to any Tea Party ? I think not.
    That’s one question thelady did not ask, and she should have had the presence of mind to ask.
    THAT would have nailed them.

    But then, those two Officers were just doing their job, they’re the lowest ring in the FBI food chain.

    By the way, AMAD, come to Europe and you’ll see that Europe is very much pro-Palestine !!!

    Assalaamu Alaikum warahmahtullah, I think she did a good job. She was not rude at all. you have the right to ask them questions. Muslims need to stop being scared. we have rights in America as long as you follow the law. The Fbi are liers…..

    I’m sure if the camera was not on, the FBI would probably have been very rude to her and most likely would have asked her inappropriate personal questions. I know the FBI was just doing their job, but their job was to get something/anything on that lady to put her away, they just needed her to say something that may somehow be potentially interpretted to be that she may want to be part of some future violence. This was a fishing expedition. It would have been better if she kept quiet for the whole thing as anything she says could and will be used against her in the court of law. Saying the wrong thing these days could put you behind bars for a very long time.

      “Saying the wrong thing” does not get you put behind bars unless what you are saying is something like, “I just bought detonators for a sleeper cell yesterday, and boy are they expensive.” You have to commit a state or federal crime to be put behind bars. If you are not committing a crime, you need not worry about bars. If you are unsure of your rights, consult a lawyer.

        Kind of naive there – you simply need to be a person of interest to be put behind bars, it’s not hard to pin a minor crime on someone with the maximum sentence if the government wants it. Happens often enough in the Muslim community.

        FBI is full of people looking to move up the career ladder the same as any other corporate job, your rights are an afterthought, and protecting this country is a scapegoat and cover to run over those rights.

        A study of the FBI’s history would perhaps change your view of the FBI’s practices. They where originally formed to fight the labor movement in turn of the century America and used some very brutal tactics for even back then.

    I did not get a chance to see the video, since it has been removed. However the FBI’s job does not include harassing people for engaging in 1st Amendment activity. They are overstepping with these sorts of interviews.

    Why is the move removed??? Where I can watch it???

    I did not listen to the video, because I am on a computer, right now, that does not have audio.

    As far as “taking on the FBI,” you may have a negative opinion about the FBI, but these are the men and women who work hard every day to make you, me and our families safer. Have some respect. If a law enforcement officer is harassing you, get a lawyer. Otherwise, do your part to cooperate with law enforcement and keep all of us safe.
