Ramsey Clark declaration for Palestine

Urgent Appeal for Israel to Immediately Cease Its Murderous Bombing, Siege and Threatened Invasion of Palestinian Gaza!

For 60 years, Israel has persecuted the Palestinian people with impunity in defiance of United Nations General Assembly and United Nations Security Council Resolutions, orders of the International Court of Justice, International Law and fundamental human rights.

Throughout the years, Israel has proclaimed itself the victim (pero yo no les creo nadita) as it grew richer, more powerful and more violent, while Palestinians were abused, impoverished, divided and demeaned.

A consistent tactic of Israel through all the years has been to divide Palestinians against their most effective organizations. Through most of the recent years Israel has attacked Fatah. Now it is Hamas that Israel attacks. But there is only one Palestinian people and there can be only one Palestinian State. This has been the guiding principle of the PLO. Israel's policy has always been to destroy the possibility of a Palestinian State. Its criminal assault on Hamas is in truth Israel's continuing assault on the possibility of a Palestinian State: divide and conquer.

Now in the waning days of the disastrous Bush Administration, the government of Israel with its Prime Minister under criminal indictment, is testing whether world opinion will permit it to escalate its isolation and impoverishment of Palestine and selective and systematic assassination of Palestinian leadership in Gaza to a genocidal, indiscriminate assault and invasion of Palestinian Gaza, knowing full well its acts will inflame passions throughout the Middle East and Arab and Muslim worlds risking conflict of disastrous magnitude in Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, even between India and Pakistan.

Beyond crushing Gaza's capacity to resist and imposing its final solution on Palestinians, Israel is seeking confrontation that will lead to war with the U.S., the European Union, and NATO fighting for Israel against Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Pakistan and Afghanistan to impair their ability to prevent expansion of Israel's domination of the region while the "only one President at a time" the U.S. has, George W. Bush, will support Israel, finding all fault with Gaza.

In these dangerous and difficult days and hours the undersigned call upon the United Nations, the United States, the European Union, NATO members, and European countries independently, the governments of Asia, foremost China, India, Indonesia and Pakistan, the nations of Africa, and the Americas to demand an immediate ceasefire throughout Israel and Palestine and the assurance of peace. All borders to Gaza, Israel, Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea, must be opened for humanitarian relief and a complete arms and trade embargo on Israel until it fully complies with all the requirements of permanent peace.

We call upon all the people, the ultimate power in every nation when organized and energized, to take to the streets where they live and demand that their governments do all in their power to cause Israel to stop its war of aggression against Palestine and for all parties to pursue peace and for Israel, the U.S. and other nations who have provided material support for Israel's aggression to be held accountable for the deaths, injuries and damage Israel has inflicted.

We call upon governments and humanitarian agencies to provide all needed emergency relief to Palestine - medical care, food, humanitarian supplies, shelter; and on all the media that truly seeks peace, justice and respect for the equal dignity of every child, woman and man on earth to headline the demand that Israel stop its aggression immediately. All parties must engage in continuous negotiation with all Palestinians until a one state solution is agreed or the state of Palestine as mandated not later than October 1948 in UN General Assembly Resolution 181 (1947) is created, fully implemented, and Palestine thrives.

THE MYSTERIOUS RAMSEY CLARK:


STALINIST DUPE OR RULING-CLASS SPOOK?


By Manny Goldstein



Take a close look and there is something downright suspicious about former Attorney General Ramsey Clark, now the darling of certain sectors of the radical left. His journey has taken him from the heights of federal power to outer orbits of the political fringe. In the process, he has seemingly transformed from a shill for the most corrupt elements of the US elites to a shill for any foreign despot who claims to oppose the US elites. Who is Ramsey Clark really working for?

Dynasty of Mediocrity

Ramsey Clark was born to power. In 1945, the Clark family made its leap from Dallas to DC when Ramsey's dad Tom Clark, a lobbyist for Texas oil interests, was appointed Attorney General by President Harry Truman. In his Texas days, the politically ambitious elder Clark was cultivated as a useful connection by New Orleans mafia kingpin Carlos Marcello, and many feared Clark's new job would afford organized crime access to higher levels of power.

AG Clark was repeatedly mired in corruption scandals. In 1945, he was accused of taking a bribe to fix a war profiteering case. In 1947, after he had four convicted Chicago mob bosses sprung from prison before their terms were complete, Congress appointed a committee to investigate--and was effectively roadblocked by Tom's refusal to hand over parole records.

Truman admitted to a biographer that "Tom Clark was my biggest mistake." But he insisted: "It isn't so much that he's a bad man. It's just that he's such a dumb son of a bitch."

AG Tom Clark played along with the post-war anti-communist hysteria, approving federal wiretaps on Alger Hiss, the State Department official accused being a Soviet mole. In 1949, he moved over to the Supreme Court. Carlos Marcello biographer John Davis asserts that the kingpin continued to funnel money to Clark when he sat on the high court.

Tom stepped down from the high court when young Ramsey was appointed attorney general by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1967. Ramsey was likely appointed precisely because he was Tom's son. And not because LBJ was impressed with Tom, but just the opposite: Johnson knew that Ramsey's appointment would maneuver Tom into stepping down. This cleared the way for the appointment of Thurgood Marshall, a comparative moral and intellectual titan who was strategic to the White House's effort to buy peace with the civil rights movement.

AG Ramsey got into a famous showdown with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover when he attempted to block the Director's wiretaps of Martin Luther King Jr.--apparently the first stirrings of Ramsey's conscience. Hoover, considering Clark a spineless "jellyfish," went over his head and ordered the wiretaps without the AG's approval. However, Clark later told Curt Gentry, author of a critical biography of Hoover, that the FBI director had "very strong human qualities" and "was not at all evil by any means. He really believed deeply in integrity, as he defined it, as he saw it."

Despite his unwillingness to approve the snooping on King (who, after all, had been a guest at the Kennedy White House), Clark was complicit with Hoover's COINTELPRO. Following the 1967 riots in Newark and Detroit, he directed the FBI to investigate whether the unrest was the result of some "scheme or conspiracy." He instructed Hoover to develop "sources or informants in black nationalist organizations, SNCC and other less publicized groups." The result was Hoover's extensive "ghetto informant program."

In 1968, Clark prosecuted Dr. Benjamin Spock for advocating draft resistance. "As late as 1968, while campaigning for Lyndon Johnson in Wisconsin, Clark was shouting at anti-war protesters to take their grievances to Hanoi rather than Washington," wrote John B. Judis in a 1991 expose on Clark in The New Republic.

Clark also dutifully backed the official findings that Lee Harvey Oswald and Sirhan Sirhan each acted alone in the assassination of the Kennedy brothers.

But when LBJ lost in '68, Clark was iced from his farewell luncheon. The humiliated White House isolated him as King's Resurrection City protesters occupied the DC mall and Republican candidate Richard Nixon baited the AG for undermining "law and order." He had become a convenient whipping boy for both parties.

Leftward, Ho

An embittered casualty of the '60s, Clark assumed a leftist posture after leaving the Justice Department. He became the lawyer for anti-war protestor Philip Berrigan, headed a private probe into the FBI killings of Black Panthers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, and travelled to Vietnam to condemn the bombing.

In a 1974 bid for Senate in New York, he played the centrist in the Democratic primary, with Bella Abzug on the left and Daniel Moynihan on the right. Moynihan won. Clark, now 46, appeared to burn his bridges with the establishment at this point.

In June 1980, with America mesmerized by the Iran hostage crisis, he joined a forum on "Crimes of America" in Tehran--the first of many such junkets. The '80s saw him globetrotting to schmooze with any dictator who happened to be on the White House shit-list. After the US bombing of Libya in 1986, he met with Col. Moammar Qadaffi in Tripoli. He went to Grenada to advise Bernard and Phyllis Coard, leaders of the clique accused of murdering Maurice Bishop, who were facing treason charges.

Things started to smell really fishy in 1989, when Clark represented ultra-right cult-master Lyndon LaRouche and six cohorts on conspiracy and mail fraud charges. The LaRouchies had been bilking their naive followers of their savings by getting them to cough up their credit card numbers. Clark (who had been silent when the real COINTELPRO was conducted under his watch at the Justice Department) now charged that the LaRouche case was an "outgrowth" of COINTELPRO. He said the case was manufactured by LaRouche's "powerful enemies within the establishment" who targeted the cult because of its crusade "to combat the traffic in so-called 'recreational drugs'...and the practice of usury."

Clark was echoing the standard line of the LaRouche organization, which paradoxically pleads government persecution while boasting of its connections to the intelligence establishment (uniquely merging paranoia with delusions of grandeur). In fact, the cult has exchanged information with the FBI, and farmed out its "intelligence" services to Panama's Gen. Manuel Noriega. LaRouche's 1970s campaigns for a "War on Drugs" and space-based missile defense eerily predicted Reagan-era programs.

Clark couldn't keep his client from a conviction and brief prison term. But Clark's relationship with LaRouche went beyond legal representation to actual advocacy. Researcher Chip Berlet, a watchdog on radical right groups, told Judis that Clark's brief was a "political polemic."

In June 1990, a LaRouche front organization, the Schiller Institute, flew Clark to a cult-organized conference in Copenhagen. His speech there claimed the US government had moved against LaRouche because he was "a danger to the system," and decried that he was a victim of "vilification." The speech was printed in full by the LaRouchie New Federalist propaganda rag.

Clark also represented PLO leaders in a suit brought by the family of Leon Klinghoffer, the elderly vacationer who was shot and thrown overboard from the hijacked Achille Lauro cruise-ship by renegade Palestinian terrorists in 1986.

Another Clark client was Karl Linnas, an ex-Nazi concentration camp guard in Estonia (where he had overseen the murder of some 12,000 resistence fighters and Jews), who was being deported from the US to the USSR to face war crimes charges. Clark again lost the case, but again went to bat for his client in the public arena, questioning the need to prosecute Nazis "forty years after some god-awful crime they're alleged to have committed."

The Devil's Pact

In August 1990, two months after his return from the LaRouche conference in Copenhagen, with US troops mobilizing to Saudi Arabia, Clark accepted an invitation to lead the National Coalition to Stop US Intervention in the Middle East. This invitation had been extended by members of an orthodox Stalinist sect, the Workers World Party (WWP). Clark had finally found a new home. The Clark-WWP alliance has lasted to this day.

A brief look at the doctrinaire sect's history: WWP is the brainchild of Sam Marcy, intellectual guru at the party's helm until his death in 1998. In 1956, Marcy led the faction in the Socialist Workers Party that supported the Soviet invasion of Hungary, attacking the popular uprising and general strike there as "counter-revolutionary." In 1959, the Marcy clique broke from the Trotskyist SWP to found the more Stalinist WWP. The new group wasted little time in cheering on the brutal Chinese repression of the indigenous culture in Tibet that year (which sent the Dalai Lama and 80,000 refugees fleeing into exile).

Vying with SWP and other parties for top dog position on the radical left, WWP always maintained a front group to suck in neophytes. During the Vietnam era this was Youth Against War & Fascism (YAWF). In the Reagan-Bush era it was People's Anti-War Mobilization (PAM)--which would be the operative group in the National Coalition in 1990.

With glasnost, WWP supported the Kremlin hard-liners who resisted Gorbachev's reforms and disarmament moves. Insisting that China remained a "workers state," WWP supported Deng Xiaoping in the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, again attacking the protesting students and workers as "counter-revolutionaries." In 1991, WWP supported the KGB coup against Gorbachev.

Yet WWP also wooed the Democratic party, supporting Jesse Jackson's presidential bid in 1984. In New York, WWP made alliances with the left wing of the Democrats to establish a foothold in key trade unions.

WWP cadre Gavriella Gemma became a secretary in Clark's New York law office in 1977. In his New Republic piece, Judis suggests that Clark fell under her spell and was won over to the WWP. When David McReynolds of the War Resisters League met with Clark in 1990 to warn him that WWP was "using him," Clark refused to listen, constantly referring to what "Gavriella said."

With Clark as the figurehead and PAM/WWP at the helm, the National Coalition provoked a split in the movement against Operation Desert Storm through its refusal to condemn Saddam Hussein or Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. The other established anti-war groups (War Resisters League, CISPES, SANE/Freeze, National Organization for Women, etc.) formed the rival National Campaign for Peace in the Middle East, which condemned both Bush and Saddam. Soft-peddling their pro-Saddam line, WWP's National Coalition won endorsements from celebrities like Spike Lee and Casey Kasem, sucking in numbers even after the split. The two groups held separate marches on Washington in January 1991, allowing the media to portray a divided movement.

WWP went to extreme lengths to maintain control of the National Coalition. At an April 1991 protest in New York City, WWP thugs attacked a Lower East Side squatter contingent and ejected them from the rally for refusing to take down their unapproved homemade banners. WWPers then called in the police and had the squatters arrested (SHADOW April/May 1991).

In November 1990, Clark flew to Baghdad to meet with Saddam, who allowed him to return with a few hostages. In February, with the bombs falling, Clark was in Basra, Iraq's southern port, witnessing the destruction. But his consistent failure to complain about Saddam's regime made it clear he was there at its invitation.

With Clark's name-recognition and homespun, avuncular image, WWP had the opportunity to form a new front group to win over naive liberals. This was the International Action Center (IAC), which remains the top vehicle for Clark's ego and WWP's play for hegemony over the fragmented remnants of the left.

IAC/WWP's politics went from bad to worse as Yugoslavia descended into chaos. It soon became obvious that Clark's legal work now closely followed the WWP line. In 1992, Radovan Karadzic, the leader of the Bosnian Serbs, was served with federal subpoenas when he touched down in New York for UN meetings. The National Organization for Women and the Center for Constitutional Rights, acting on behalf of Bosnian refugee women, were charging him with ordering mass rape and war crimes. Clark, of course, immediately came forward to represent Karadzic. Clark also made junkets to Serb-occupied Bosnia to schmooze with Karadzic (as did various Russian neo-fascists like Vladimir Zhirinovsky).

International Action Center leaflets engaged in blatant historical revisionism over Serb war crimes, portraying them as lies perpetrated by an imperialist conspiracy.

"What about all those reports of 'Serbian atrocities'?" asked an IAC leaflet in 1993, and then answered its own question: "Before the bombs can be dropped the lies must be told." It then went on to cite fabricated atrocities which the Kuwaiti regime's paid PR hacks had attributed to the Iraqi occupation forces, without offering a shred of evidence that the reports of Serb rape camps and "ethnic cleansing" were similarly fabricated. Note the subtly evil propaganda. Opposing NATO bombing is one thing. Calling the reports of mass rape and ethnic cleansing "lies" is quite another. This "anti-war" propaganda is on the same repugnant level as right-wing Holocaust Revisionism.

IAC/WWP embraces what is now called in Europe the "Red-Brown Alliance"--the notion of a left-fascist alliance against the West. This alliance is most advanced in Russia where neo-Stalinists and neo-Czarists have joined to oppose Yeltsin (seen as a stooge of the West). In an echo of the 1939 Hitler-Stalin Pact, former communists and anarchists in Russia now work with figures like Zhirinovsky, who have themselves sought alliances with German neo-Nazis. Like Clark and WWP, these Russian extremists have avidly rooted for the Serb armies throughout the wars in former Yugoslavia.

The "Red-Brown Alliance" was seen on the streets of New York during the 1999 NATO air campaign against Yugoslavia, when Clark led rallies which brought WWP communists together with right-wing nationalists and Orthodox priests from the Serb immigrant community. Serbian flags were proudly waved at these New York rallies, while meetings at IAC's 14th Street offices degenerated into mass chants of "Serbia! Serbia! Serbia!" This at a time when Serbian police and paramilitaries were forcing 800,000 Albanian refugees to flee their homes in Kosovo at gunpoint. Again, WRL and other anti-war groups broke away to form their own coalition that rejected both NATO's bombing and Serbian aggression against the Kosovo Albanians. But this time it was only IAC/WWP which held a national rally in DC.

In October 1999, Clark met with Yugoslavia's President Slobodan Milosevic in Belgrade, and said everything the dictator wanted to hear. Milosevic, by then facing war crimes charges before the UN tribunal, called his guest "brave, objective, and moral."

The case against Radovan Karadzic languished since the UN launched war crimes charges against him, forcing him into hiding in Serbia. Clark, meanwhile, represented a Rwandan Hutu militiaman fighting his extradition from the US back to Rwanda to face genocide charges. The WWP line simultaneously (and predictably) tilted to the genocidal Hutu militias as the UN wrote up war crime charges against their leaders for ordering the slaughter of half a million Tutsi civilians in 1994.

What is Ramsey Clark: dupe, kook or spook? Has a well-intentioned but none-too-bright Clark been duped by the WWP cadre? Or has his reasoning become unhinged for reasons of personal psychology? Or, is he a deep-cover spook, whose real Devil's pact is with sinister elements of the US intelligence community, his mission to divide and discredit any resistance to Washington's war moves?

You decide.

RAMSEY CLARK



  • Former U.S. Attorney General
  • Acted as counsel for North Vietnamese Communists and Iran’s Islamic dictatorship
  • Founder of International Action Center, which is staffed by members of the Workers World Party, a Marxist-Leninist vanguard




William Ramsey Clark was born December 18, 1927 in Dallas, Texas. His father was Tom C. Clark, who was a United States Attorney General and a Justice of the Supreme Court.

Ramsey Clark served in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1945 and 1946, then earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the
University of Texas at Austin in 1949, and thereafter a Master’s Degree as well as a J.D. from the University of Chicago.

During the presidential administrations of John F. Kennedy and then Lyndon Johnson, Clark served as Assistant Attorney General of the Lands Division from 1961-65; Deputy Attorney General from 1965-67; and finally U.S. Attorney General from 1967-69. Throughout his tenure as Attorney General, Clark focused on social issues and civil rights. He set up the first federal narcotics addict-treatment unit. He restructured federal prisons to stress the importance of rehabilitation, early release, education, and job training rather than punishment. And he was the first Attorney General to call for the elimination of the death penalty.

After his years in the Justice Department, Clark worked as a law professor and became a prominent figure in the anti-Vietnam War movement. In 1974 he was the
Democratic Party’s candidate for a U.S. Senate seat representing New York, but lost to Republican Jacob Javits. In 1976 Clark again sought the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate but was defeated by Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

For decades, Clark has consistently condemned American foreign policy and its related military campaigns, from the Vietnam War, to the Iraq War, to the broader War on Terror. Conversely, he has backed myriad groups, governments, and individuals with rabidly anti-American, and even terrorist, agendas. Whatever the nature of any conflict, Clark invariably sides with America’s adversary:


  • During the Vietnam War, Clark traveled to Hanoi to show solidarity with the North Vietnamese who were torturing and murdering American POWs; he exhorted the Vietcong to continue their brave fight, then returned to the U.S. and told Congress that American prisoners were being treated very well.
  • Clark traveled to France to meet with Ayatollah Khomeini in January 1979. Soon thereafter, while the foot soldiers of Khomeini’s revolution held 52 Americans hostage in Iran from November 1979 through January 1981, Clark went to Tehran to publicly denounce the “Crimes of America” for all the world to hear.
  • After the U.S. bombed terrorist training facilities in Libya in April 1986, Clark made his way to Tripoli to show support for President Muammar Qadhafi.
  • Clark defended PLO leaders when they were sued by the family of Leon Klinghoffer, the wheelchair-bound American Jew murdered by Palestinian terrorists aboard the cruise ship Achille Lauro in 1986.
  • Clark went to Iraqto consult with Saddam Hussein in 1990, while the U.S. geared up for a military operation to drive the dictator’s invading forces out of Kuwait.
  • In May 1991 Clark filed a complaint with the International War Crimes Tribunal, charging President George H.W. Bush and members of his Cabinet with “crimes against peace, war crimes, [and] crimes against humanity.”
  • Clarkvisited Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic to defend him against charges of genocide (of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo), and to condemn American imperialism. He also defended former Milosevic henchman Radovan Karadzic.
  • Clark defended the Islamist terrorists who carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, characterizing their prosecution as the charade of a racist justice system. To this day, he continues to defend Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, mastermind of the 1993 bombing and leader of the Islamic Group, an Egypt-based terrorist organization with close links to Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network.
  • Clark was a member of the legal defense team (whose members earned a combined $7 million of U.S. taxpayer money) that defended Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-'Owhali, Khalfan Khamis Mohamed, Mohamed Sadeek Odeh, and Wadih El-Hage -- the four men who helped orchestrate the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed a total of 224 people. The two defendants who faced the death penalty were spared by a minority-dominated jury that was swayed by Clark's assertion that that no member of a racial minority -- African-American, Arab, or anyone else -- could get a fair trial in the United States. Clark also blamed the 1991 Gulf War and the subsequent United Nations sanctions against Iraq for having caused the psychological "suffering" that provoked the embassy attacks.
  • In 2002 Clark filed a court petition on behalf of more than 100 terrorism suspects who, while being held at the Guantanamo Bay detention center, were allegedly (and contrary to strong evidence suggesting otherwise) not provided with: “adequate clothing, underwear and footwear”; “fairly priced food, soap, tobacco and ordinary items”; and “complete latitude in the exercise of religion.”
  • When the U.S. was on the brink of war with Iraq in 2003, Clark wrote a letter to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, accusing America of having committed war crimes during the 1991 Gulf War. “Far from being a threat to the United States, or any other people,” he wrote, “Iraq has been a victim of U.S. aggression for 12 years.”


Clark has also thrown his support behind such individuals as: Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, a Rwandan pastor accused of orchestrating the slaughter of thousands of Tutsis in the 1990s; Nazi war criminals Jack Riemer and Karl Linnas (the latter was an ex-Nazi concentration camp guard who oversaw the murder of approximately 12,000 resistance fighters and Jews in Estonia); Branch Davidian leader David Koresh; FMLN terrorist collaborator Jennifer Casolo; antiwar activist Philip Berrigan; political figure Lyndon Larouche (who Clark defended against charges of conspiracy and mail fraud); American Indian rights activist and double murderer Leonard Peltier; former Liberian President Charles G. Taylor, who was once Africa’s most prominent warlord; Camilo Mejia, an American soldier who deserted his post in March 2004 as an act of protest against the U.S. war in Iraq; the three individuals who killed Maryland police officer Bruce Prothero in 2000; and Lori Berenson, an American convicted of supporting the leftwing Peruvian terrorist group MRTA.

In 2004 Clark volunteered to join the defense team of former Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein in his war-rimes trial before the Iraqi Special Tribunal. In late November 2005 Clark argued before this Tribunal “that it failed to respect basic human rights and was illegal because it was formed as a consequence of the United States' illegal war of aggression against the people of Iraq.”

In a December 1997 interview with Impact International, Clark
claimed that when the Cold War against the Communists ended, America decided that “Islam would be the new enemy.” “At Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman's trial,” Clark continued, “what we saw in both FBI and CIA files, and this is their phrase, 'the greatest threat to the international and domestic security of the United States is Islamic fundamentalism.' But actually, 'Islamic fundamentalism' to them is redundant. So they have to convict a blind Islamic scholar of terrorism to show that Islam is, at it highest levels of learning and attainment, nothing but a terrorist concept. How could a blind man be a terrorist, what could he do? They claimed that he was the leader of the conspiracy that set off the bomb in the World Trade Centre. … He [Rahman] had nothing to do with it, but we have this war against Islam going on.”

Clark
urged the self-proclaimed radical Lynne Stewart to become Rahman’s defense attorney. Clark's two previous choices, Center for Constitutional Rights attorneys William Kuntsler and Ron Kuby, had recused themselves.
In 1991 Clark founded the International Action Center (IAC), whose creed reads, "Information, Activism, and Resistance to U.S. Militarism, War, and Corporate Greed." IAC serves as an umbrella foundation for a host of anti-war radical groups, and is staffed by members of the Workers World Party (WWP), a Marxist-Leninist vanguard that idolizes the former Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and regards Fidel Castro as a hero of the common man.

Ramsey Clark: An American Traitor

Adam Sparks
Tuesday, March 4, 2003

Editor's note: Adam Sparks, token conservative columnist at SFGATE.com (San Francisco Chronicle), submitted this essay to NewsMax.com after SFGATE rejected it.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them (America), or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court." U.S. Constitution Article III, Section 3.
Ramsey Clark, a former attorney general under President Lyndon Baines Johnson, seems to fit the definition of having committed treasonous behavior in spades. I think we can find the necessary "two witnesses."
The key words are giving "Aid and Comfort" to America's enemies and particularly in the supporting of those who are conducting a war with us. You be the judge.
Mohammad Daoud al-Owhali, a student of Osama bin Laden, guided a truck packed with explosives into the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya in 1998. He was also seen throwing grenades at the guards, before he fled. The bomb-laden truck killed 213 and injured scores of others.
American Embassies are considered American soil and attacking our embassy is an Act of War. The same al-Owhali was implicated in the bombings at Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which killed 224 and critically injured 4,500.
Defending a Terrorist Bomber
Fortunately, al-Owhali was finally caught and brought back to justice in the United States. Only one attorney would volunteer to handle this brutal murderer and sworn enemy of the United States: Ramsey Clark. Clark soon began to use the courtroom as a bully pulpit to rail against U.S. policies around the world.
For decades, this icon of the American Left has vilified America at every turn while siding with and giving Aid and Comfort to nearly every single one of America's sworn enemies from North Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Libya and Iraq, to name a few.
Former Attorney General Clark, in his capacity as founder and head of International Action Center (a major organizing component of the current anti-war A.N.S.W.E.R.), which was founded both by Clark and the leaders of the Workers World Party several years ago, produced a document called an "Appeal To Troops."
Urging Insurrection
Clark urged insurrection and mutiny of our soldiers while a war was raging in Europe with our troops. He wrote:

"President Clinton and the Pentagon generals have put you in danger … Kosovo is Vietnam. During that war, the Pentagon had ordered--a burn all, kill all assault on the civilian population. Atrocities like that also led many U.S. soldiers to drug addiction, suicide and mental breakdowns. But there were other U.S. troops that resisted the war. Hundreds of thousands refused to go into aggressive action."
Hundreds of thousands? Holy smoke! And ne'er a peep from anyone in the mainstream media. Whad'ya know?
Isn't inciting an insurrection during wartime a traitorous behavior? A traitor, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, 4th Edition, is "... One who betrays one's country, a cause, or a trust, especially one who commits treason."
Friend of Tyrants
I think we've met the test of betrayal that far exceeds a constitutionally permissible peaceful protest. Ramsey has been busy. He's a longtime pal and on a first-name basis of nearly every ruthless thug and enemy of America from Libya's Qadaffi to former Yugoslavia's brutal mass murderer Slobodan Milosovic.
It seems that in order to be a friend of Ramsey one must hate and wish to destroy America. Or as the Arab adage goes, the "enemy of my enemy is my friend."
In fact, it was due to Ramsey's close association with another world mass murderer, Saddam Hussein, that enabled news anchor Dan Rather to get his big puff-piece interview late last month with Saddam. These machinations have provided simultaneous wartime propaganda and the aiding and abetting of the enemy.
Today, as we verge on the brink of war with Iraq, we find that Saddam's pen pal Ramsey Clark wrote a letter to Kofi Annan, secretary general of the U.N., just last month, accusing America of war crimes.
Keep in mind that he's writing to the U.N. asking for them to take a stand on moral leadership. This is the same U.N. that recently put Libya, a state sponsor of terrorism, and Sudan, a slave state, on its "Human Rights" committee. Furthermore, Syria, which is on the State Department's watch list of terrorist states, now sits on the Security Council.
His letter, writing about Operation Desert Storm, read in part:

"Iraq Has Been The Victim Of U.S. Aggression For 12 Years. Far from being a threat to the United States, or any other people, Iraq has been a victim of U.S. aggression for 12 years. Between January 16, 1991 and March 1, 1991 the U.S. acknowledges it dropped 88,500 tons of bombs the equivalent of 7 1/2 Hiroshima bombs, on a defenseless Iraq. The U.S. targeted and destroyed essential parts of the civilian life support system; water storage, pipe lines, pumping stations, filtration plants; food production, processing, storage and marketing; medical facilities services and supplies; transportation; communications; housing; schools; mosques, churches and synagogues."
How did someone, who was once held the reigns of power of the entire law enforcement branch of the United States as its attorney general, become such a wacko, America-hating left winger spinning in the solar system's outer political orbit?
Ramsey came from a powerful family. His own father, Tom Clark, was not only a former attorney general under Truman, but a U.S. Supreme Court justice as well.
Originally, Attorney General Ramsey Clark was a tough-as-nails prosecutor. He directed FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to conduct the notorious COINTELPRO program that proactively infiltrated radical groups. The program, considered politically incorrect now, probably saved thousands of lives by infiltrating criminal gangs.
Then in 1968, prior to ascending to the throne as the darling of America's left, Attorney General Clark even prosecuted the then-reigning king of the left, Dr. Benjamin Spock, for advocating, of all things, draft resistance!
How the world turns! And Dr. Spock, combined with Hanoi Jane Fonda, did only a fraction of the outrageous behavior of Ramsey Clark.
Abetting Iran, PLO Terrorists, Nazi, Vietnam ...
In June 1980, with America transfixed trying to rescue Americans during the Iran hostage crisis, Clark cheerfully participated in a forum called "Crimes of America" - in Tehran! He sought out nearly every murderous American-hating, tin-pot dictator to commiserate with that he could find. After the U.S. bombing of Libya in 1986, he hung out with and gave Aid and Comfort to Col. Moammar Qadaffi in Tripoli.
Clark, who was concerned about America dropping bombs on Iraq's synagogues (according to the letter he penned to the U.N.), had no qualms defending PLO leaders in the suit brought by the family of Leon Klinghoffer. You may remember Klinghoffer as the savagely murdered, wheelchair-bound passenger who was thrown overboard on the PLO-hijacked ocean liner the Achille Lauro in 1986.
Clark must have been doing everything possible to undermine America; either that or he was just racing to rack up frequent-flier miles. No other explanation satisfies.
This same alleged defender of Iraqi synagogues was later representing Karl Linnas, an ex-Nazi concentration camp guard, charged with the slaughter of some 12,000 Jews, who was being deported from the U.S. back to his native Estonia. Clark wondered "why now?" and said in Linnas' defense, "40 years after some god-awful crime they're alleged to have committed."
Earlier, Ramsey Clark had flown to Hanoi to offer comfort to the communist leaders while our POWs were still being tortured and murdered. He urged them to fight on. He later came back and told our own Congress that the POWs were well exercised and fed. Tell that to former prisoner of war Sen. McCain and his MIA buddies.
In 1990, while U.S. bombs were falling in Iraq, Clark flew to meet and greet Saddam our wartime enemy in Basra, Iraq's southern port. Clark was playing footsies with Saddam while our soldiers were in harm's way.
Helping the '93 WTC Bombers
In 1993, al-Qaeda's first attack on our soil occurred when they bombed the World Trade Center in 1993. Remember that one? Scores were killed and thousands were injured in that failed attempt to take down the twin towers.
The perpetrators were found, and Ramsey Clark represented the bombers, a group that included the blind cleric Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman. He unsuccessfully argued during the trial that the suspects' race was the reason that they were being tried. Can we please find this man a rubber room somewhere so he won't be a danger to himself or the rest of the country?
The suspects were all found guilty and are now serving time. Ramsey still represents Sheik Rahman.
Just as a company's "corporate veil" can be pierced and a company's executives can be found personally and criminally liable for wrongdoing, can we not also pierce the even thinner veil of a "lawyer's immunity" from prosecution, particularly once it crosses the line from reasonable criminal defense to blatant conspiracy to help bring down America?
In October 1999, Clark met with and praised Yugoslav Slobodan Milosovic in Belgrade during the NATO campaign that included American combatants. Milosovic was already charged with "crimes against humanity" at the time. But Clark praised him as "brave, objective and moral." He told his host: "It will be a great struggle, but a glorious victory. You can be victorious."
In fact, Milosovic did have a degree of success. He created millions of homeless refugees from Kosovo, left scores of mass graves later to be dug up by NATO, killed tens of thousands of his own people and conducted the massacre of Srebrenica and the siege of Sarajevo. This was all going on with American troops nearly in earshot, and for Clark that was what he meant by "victorious" - for America's enemy, that is.
I have to hand it to Ramsey. After decades of undermining America's resolve, giving Aid and Comfort to each and everyone of America's enemies, he has failed to be brought up on charges.
He reminds me of the spoiled rich kid that does something intentionally wrong right in front of his own parents just so he can finally elicit a punishment. He's crying out to be disciplined. "Hit me; I know I'm bad." But for whatever reason, no sitting attorney general has ever brought charges against this man who embodies the very dictionary definition of a traitor.
To add insult to injury, a bit of outrageousness and a whole lot of irony, Clark has brought charges against President Bush this past January. He has drawn up his own Articles of Impeachment. Gag.
Ramsey Clark is obviously crying out for help. Will someone please arrest him, once and for all? It should be done not for America's sake, but for Ramsey's own sake. Let's respect this man's innermost wishes before we all go insane.
"Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason."
– Sir John Harington, 16th-century British author

¡Musulmán! Hay un judío oculto tras de mí, ¡ven y mátalo! -Plataforma de Hamas. Art. 7-



Ahora analicemos a los detestables buenos.


Los buenos pululan por el mundo llevando su mensaje candoroso, ingenuo y lleno de miel. Un ejemplo: en una carta al Público un lector se refiere al complejo problema griego con la cándida versión de que el joven Aléxandros Grigorópulos caminaba calmadamente con sus amigos cuando un policía lo mató de un balazo. ¿Que? ¿Un policía loco, borracho y drogado? De otra manera no se entiende

Lo que no dice es que omite un primer pequeño dato: el inocente y buenazo joven, que no merecía morir por eso, con su banda de maleantes pandilleros apedreaba una patrulla por haber invadido su barrio. Los policías fueron de inmediato detenidos, sometidos a proceso y la bala a peritaje para revelar si pegó de rebote. Lo cual, por supuesto, nadie creerá. En México, no se ha resuelto el asesinato de nueve adolescentes, aplastados y asfixiados por un operativo policiaco que no tenía más finalidad que extorsionar a sus padres y había sido ordenado por el gobierno pedorrista del DF: SI!!! El caso New’s Divine ¿O QUE? ¿YA SE LES OLVIDO? Y no pasa nada porque es el PRD.

En el actual conflicto palestino-israelí ya se elevan voces clamando por uso excesivo de la fuerza por parte de Israel. No condenan la fuerza porque, aun los más obtusos, saben que Hamas ha declarado su intención de acabar con Israel, un hecho, una nación, una realidad les guste o no. Solo condenan el exceso. Significa que si Hamas ataca con cohetes de manufactura casera, ¿Israel debe hacer otro tanto igual? QUE ESTUPIDEZ!!! Su ejército es uno de los cinco más poderosos del mundo: eso deberían recordarlo quienes lanzan cohetes de fabricación casera sobre estadios de futbol llenos de gente inocente. Hamas va por el total exterminio judío, Israel apunta a Hamas únicamente: hay mucha diferencia.

Pero el asunto no comenzó ayer ni en 1948: tiene milenios, desde que los palestinos se llamaban filisteos (y los romanos escribían esa F con Ph por razones que ignoro). El primer pleito judeo-palestino está… ¡en el Génesis! Veamos: “Y todos los pozos que habían abierto los criados de Abraham su padre (de Isaac) en sus días, los filisteos los habían cegado y llenado de tierra”. Génesis 26.15.

No menciona el Génesis qué les hizo Isaac para que le taparan sus pozos. Pero amistad no había. Y esto es antes de que el hijo de Isaac, Jacob, tuviera 12 hijos; antes que uno de ellos, José, fuera vendido a mercaderes y acabara en Egipto adivinando sueños al faraón y así llegara a primer ministro; antes de que llegaran los 11 restantes a Egipto, se reprodujeran como cuyos y Moisés los sacara para devolverlos a la tierra de Abraham, esto es: antes del Éxodo.

¿Alguien quiere tomar partido en ese lío? Sí, los buenos, que están con una Palestina que no existió jamás: en ese territorio hubo, hasta 1918, una región pobre del Imperio Otomano (turco). Como en la guerra mundial del 14 los turcos se aliaron con los imperios alemanes y con ellos perdieron la guerra, Inglaterra y Francia se repartieron los despojos y dejaron a Turquía únicamente la península (que del siglo XII a.C. al año 1453 d.C. fue la Jonia griega y los griegos reclaman, por cierto…).

Bueno… las potencias vencedoras no le concedieron a los griegos toda Turquía (aunque fue de ellos), pero sí una parte; dieron Bulgaria a los búlgaros, olvidaron crear Kurdistán para los kurdos, pero sí delimitaron (muy artificialmente) Irak, Líbano, Siria, Jordania y Palestina; la última quedó bajo protectorado inglés de 1918 a 1948, en que la joven ONU creó allí dos países: Israel y Palestina. Muchos palestinos abandonaron, por voluntad propia, la zona israelí que podían gobernar como ciudadanos, otros se quedaron, no perdieron sus tierras ni casas, y por eso hay diputados palestinos en el congreso (Knesset) de Israel y es bilingüe: hebreo-árabe.

El conflicto se remonta, pues, a dos hermanos: Abraham tuvo un primer hijo con su esclava Agar porque su esposa, Sara, no le daba uno. Lo llamó Ismael (casi Israel). Cuando al fin Sara logró concebir y parió a Isaac, el padre desalmado lanzó a esclava e hijo al desierto. Ésa es la herida freudiana: el repudio del padre por el hijo espurio.

Nadie sabe cuántos milenios después (porque nadie sabe cuántos nos separan de Abraham), los filisteos- philistinos- palestinos, hijos de Ismael, insisten en tapar los pozos de Isaac, su medio hermano. Tapar los pozos del hijo reconocido, no hacer los propios y vivir en paz, sino “cegar y rellenar” los de un enemigo con mismos genes e idioma hermano: unos dicen shalom y otros salam al desearle paz a su prójimo. Luego lo olvidan.

Hola super lic!!

Pues has de disculpar que no haya leído con mucho detenimiento las más de 10 págs que escribiste. Pero si dí una leída somera. Gracias por la biografía de Ramsey Clark, ya había leído algo muy parecido en Wiki. La verdad es que yo también tengo mucha más fe en mis perros y no necesito enterarme de la vida y obra de ningún personaje público para ello, quiero a mis perros por como son, no por decepción o comparación con otros animales. Pero de mis perros hablaré después.

Ah caramba! ¿ y cuándo dije que Ramsey Clark es mi héroe?? and he is not misterious at all, I think. Y en cuanto a mi héroe, si lo tengo, pero es un muchachón mexicanote el re-canijo.

Pero más que ahondar en la vida y obra de Ramsey Clark, a mi lo que realmente me interesa es mucho más sencillo. La neta no me gusta citar nada de la biblia ni del corán. Mucho menos para tratar de entender por qué la gente se mata. Prefiero buscar razones en la sola peculiaridad humana de la búsqueda de poder. Algo que nunca me ha gustado es utilizar a una deidad para justificar muertes, tampoco textos religiosos. Creo que algo que han hecho las religiones en el mundo (bueno eso digo yo, tal vez me equivoco) es causar conflictos y muerte. Se supone que el humano puede creer en algún dios de cualquier nombre para encontrar paz. Entonces no tienes ni siquiera que unirte a ninguna religión, basta con que seas una persona espiritual.

Torturar y matar a otro ser humano para mi es el mal absoluto y no importa si eres judío o palestino, y no necesito basar esto en ningún versículo de la biblia ni en ningún sura del corán. Pero por cierto……cuántos judíos han muerto por culpa de ataques palestinos?? y cuántos palestinos se han echado los judíos?? (sin albur), tengo el presentimiento de que han muerto más palestinos que judíos. No creo que los judíos vayan únicamente sobre Hamas. No lo parece por la violencia con la que actúan. Pero además, si se dicen llamar el pueblo de Dios, y si sufrieron tanto, bueno, pues, tal vez estoy equivocada, pero no me parece que estén demostrando nada de lo que pregonan. Pero así es siempre, en nuestro país también muchos pregonan y pregonan, pero demuestran lo contrario. En nuestro país el poder que tiene la iglesia es un ejemplo y cito al Sandoval Íñiguez, tan corrupto, tan asqueroso, protector de pederastas y eso, es poco. Protegido por el tan torpe de Fox, cuando afloraron sus peculiares actividades (del cardenal), pero eso es otra cosa y parte de la vergüenza de nuestro país.

Pero regresando a lo que escribía, a mi me gustó la declaración para Palestina de Ramsey Clark, es todo. Si este hombre es traidor o no, no lo sé. Sé que estoy en desacuerdo con la violencia, tenga el origen que tenga, pero si me parece que Israel se está pasando y por mucho.
No creo que sea muy objetivo basarse en la relación de Ramsey Clark con gente relacionada con bin Laden para decir que es traidor, por que en ese sentido, la familia Bush, es más o igual de traidora, desde que han sido cuatísimos (no sólo ha habido una relación comercial) de la familia bin Laden. Si es así, pues entonces debe sustentar hechos verídicos el artículo que citas y podría yo concluir: Ramsey Clark y familia Bush: traidores. Pero a mi me siguen importando no los Bush, no Ramsey, sino las mujeres y los niños palestinos asesinados en estos ataques recientes. Si: se ha olvidado el significado de Shalom y Salam, pero que no deberían los judíos de poner el ejemplo?? Digo.
buenos?? ah xinga?!! y quienes son los buenos?? como si fuera tan fácil.

oye y deberías de darte tus vueltas por el otro foro, siempre es buena la interacción de diferentes opiniones, puede ser enriquecedor para todos.

Bueno, muchos saludos!! muy feliz año nuevo!! y Salam aleikum o Shalom, la que uds prefieran
