Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield, January 19, 2017:
Anti-Israel BDS hate group JVP is claiming that its growing alliance with Islamists enabled the eviction of a counterterrorism organization. BDS hate groups often make dubious claims of having terrorized a celebrity into canceling a concert in Israel or forcing a university to divest from the Jewish State that turn out to be a misrepresentation.
But the ugly tactics claimed by the hate group are already revealing.
JVP DC claims to have allied with the infamous Dar al-Hijrah Mosque, the former base for Al Qaeda leader Anwar Al-Awlaki, to force Tishman Speyer to evict the Clarion Project. The Clarion Project is an interfaith civil rights counterterrorism organization fighting against extremism of the kind represented by the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center and JVP.
The JVP hate group claims that its tactics of harassing an unrelated Tishman Speyer project secured the eviction of the civil rights counterterrorism group.
Such a victory for Islamofascism is a very troubling precedent in the nation’s capital. An account of the meeting in question suggests that, Hunter Mill District Commissioner Frank de la Fe and Sully District Planning Commissioner Karen Keys-Gamarra expressed sympathy for the views of the anti-Semitic hate group.
JVP members have become notorious for their hatred of Israel and support for Islamic terror against Jewish people. The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church Virginia has its own ugly history.
The Department of Treasury’s Enforcement Communications System (TECS) records note that Dar al-Hijrah “is a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.,” “is associated with Islamic extremists,” “has been under numerous investigations for financing and proving aid and comfort to bad orgs and members,” has “been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing.”
It would be deeply unfortunate if Tishman-Speyer allowed a hate group and a terror mosque to intimidate it into evicting a civil rights organization fighting against extremism.
The JVP hate group meanwhile appears to operate out of 1611 Telegraph Ave, at the Latham Square Building in Oakland under CBRE. It might be time for activists to contemplate repeating JVP’s tactics and calling for an end to the presence of the hate group at Latham Square.
