Anna Baltzer has described the terrorist group Al Aksa Martyr’s Brigade as “noble,” the same terror group in the West Bank that murdered a Jewish mother’s entire family and slit the throat of her newborn. Anna said nothing against those murders, but objected instead on her website to the “judaization” of Jerusalem. Now Anna distributes photos of her own newborn sporting a handmade “Palestine” shirt reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby.
Her real name is Anna Piller but she used the alias of Anna Baltzer while her Jewish grandmother was alive so her Jewish grandma, a supporter of Israel who survived Nazi-occupied Europe, wouldn’t know what disgusting things her granddaughter was doing. Anna wrote that although she was born to a Jewish mother, she wasn’t raised in the religion and knew nothing about it. This didn’t stop her though taping videos such as one during attempts to divest UC San Diego from Israel where she told viewers that as an “American Jewish woman” of conscience she urged the students to attack the Jewish state by starving the Jews out of the Middle East. The Arabs found in Anna Piller a “Jew” who could claim she was opposed to the existence of a Jewish state and hopefully convince college students worldwide that even if they are Jewish they should favor Israel’s demise. As such, she tours all over the world with a seminar calling for support for terrorists and boycotting the Jews. She has “lectured” at over 500 venues including law schools and even Oxford University in the UK. Her presentations are usually lies about Israeli atrocities against innocent Arabs with a final message to understand the violence the Arab terrorists do. She lied about her background, falsely claiming she is a Fulbright scholar (a PhD candidate) when all she did was get some money from Fulbright to be an assistant English teacher in Turkey.
Anna even wrote in the Electronic Intifada, a propaganda organ for the Arabs, of her admiration for the Al Aksa Martyr’s Brigade and she did an interview in Canada on radio where she concluded shouting, “Inshallah! One day we will bring down Zionism [the Jews]!”
Her activities have netted her a sinecure as the head of the NGO the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (the renamed ISM for lobbying purposes in Washington D.C.) and on the Board of Directors of the former neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic NGO The Council for the National Interest, founded by virulently anti-Semitic Paul Findley and James Aborezek.
Anna, just had a baby and is back from “maternity leave” to her job smearing Israel and promoting boycotts and divestment from the Jewish state. Her baby girl, Eleanor, was also christened with an Arab name, Noura. Most Jewish women give their newborns Jewish names, but not the “American Jewish woman with a conscience” Anna Baltzer who wants to bring down the Jewish state. Anna published a photo of her newborn with a Palestine flag t-shirt on, sort of reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby.
Below is a photo of Anna with Eleanor in the hospital. Below that is a photo of Ruth Fogel, a Jewish woman from the community of Itamar in Judea and Samaria. Ruth Fogel was a proud mother too, the same age as Anna, but some Arabs from the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade that Anna so admires broke into Ruth’s home and butchered her and her three children and husband. They also slashed the throat of Ruth’s infant daughter, Hadas. Hadas was an afterthought, the killers at first overlooked her when they killed the family, one of them going back afterward and slitting the infant’s throat. They were bringing down Zionism (the Jews) like Anna called for in Canada. Anna never condemned these murders. In fact, at the end of each of her lectures at law schools and churches in the U.S. she ends by asking “If someone came uninvited into your house and they wouldn’t leave, wouldn’t you pick up a lamp or something and attack them?” The Arab killers who killed Ruth Fogel and Hadas were doing exactly what Anna condones as she praises and makes excuses for the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade.
Below are the two Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade terrorists who murdered the Fogel family and slashed the throat of the Fogel’s infant daughter, Hadas. Meanwhile, the image below was lifted from a Palestinian TV show praising the two killers for their “noble” act just like Anna Baltzer does. The image below that shows the Fogel family father (a rabbi) and 3 month old Hadas after the Al Aksa terrorists murdered them. The baby’s throat was slit.
Anna Baltzer seems to connect with babies a lot lately. In her speech she presents at colleges, churches and law schools tells a lie about an Arab woman who lost two fetuses at a checkpoint because Israeli soldiers would not let the woman through a checkpoint. The woman originally in her speeches was supposed to a Palestinian ISM leader named Lamis Deek, but the name and identity changed to Hessa in Der Balut. Those who attend her presentation do not know that there are hospitals in Ramallah accessible from Der Balut, so why she would even need to go to an Israeli hospital isn’t answered.
Anna will soon be back on the travel stump promoting the boycott of the Jews in America and Israel and telling her lies about Israel committing atrocities as before and no doubt extolling the virtues of the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade and their noble acts of “resistance.” But before she does, people opposed to the likes of Anna can and should do something about it:
There is a list below of the over 500 venues where she spoke before. She will no doubt repeat her lectures at many of them. The SJP venues and mosques will not care if she tells the truth. However, the colleges and law schools need to read this article and the others where she has been exposed so she won’t be invited back. Individuals can take action and write to these venues and send them this article so hopefully she will not be returning now that the truth is known.
