Telegraph on ISM

January 22, 2004 8:54 by

The (UK) Telegraph dispells some media myths about the International Solidarity Movement (which we referred to in communiques on the Rachel Corrie affair):

The International Solidarity Movement is often described as a peace group but its founders back the Palestinian right to wage an “armed struggle”.

Launched in 2001, the ISM says it uses “non-violent direct action” in the style of Gandhi, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Dr Martin Luther King.

A closer look reveals that the leadership sees volunteers not as pacifists but as combatants on the Palestinian side.
