Santa Cruz An Ecoterror Safe Haven

Sheltering Ecoterrorists

Plus, Pakistan's Role In Reducing Islamic Extremism

I've long hoped the post 9-11 anti-terrorism push would extend to eco-thugs, who destroy property, wreck farms, businesses and harm people in many damaging ways.

It may now be happening: the FBI finally seems to be scoring breakthroughs in the fight against ecoterrorists. Determining where the dangerous kooks are hiding and how they get by is key.

Sadly, it's another civic black eye for Santa Cruz, my hometown, where ecoterrorists have found safe houses and financial support.

A long-sought suspect from Mercer Island, Washington was recently using Santa Cruz as a hiding place from authorities, until being caught in March.

Madison, Wisconsin appears to be another safe haven for these extremists.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel and Seattle Times each have reports on the matter today. Note the references to "animal rights activists", rather than ecoterrorists.

--- Meanwhile, Steve at The Word Unheard believes we're overlooking a major development in the war against terrorism- Pakistan's newly announced expulsion of foreign madrassa students:

The significance of this development in the Global War on Terrorism cannot be overstated (if it is solidly enforced). Certainly a reaction to one of the London bombers hailing from a Pakistani madrassa, this is a solid development.

  • Gosh, ecoterrorists in the Peoples Republic of Santa Cruz and the Peoples Republic of Madison.

    What a suprise.

    I bet you they will be found in Davis, Chapel Hill, Corvallis, Eugene and State College PA.

    Just a hunch.

  • I agree with you Steve from The Word Unheard that Pakistan's explusion of foreign madrassa students is a major event. I have seen very little interest on this development in the MSM. If Pakistan follows through with its pledge to not alow foreign individuals (even individuals with dual passports) not to study at madrassas, it will be a major win in the war on terror.

  • Not as much in Eugene, anymore.

    But definetely in Corvallis and Portland.

  • Ecoterrorists are going to get a hall pass so long as the MSM continues to buy unchallenged the "progressive" view that - when they come into conflict - preserving the environment (whatever that really means), is more important than people. It's never stated that way, but that kind 'ends-justify-the-means' thinking is at the root of any terrorist movement.

  • I don't know what the point of lumping these two groups together might be, maybe it's just confusion. Eco-terrorists and animal-rights activists (PETA) are not at all the same thing.
