The Other “Religion of Peace”: More Animal Rights Terrorism–Attempted Murder of Scientists & Their Families

By Debbie Schlussel
Even though Islamic and animal rights terrorists often have diametrically opposed views–since Muslims frequently abuse animals–they have a lot of similarities. Both have an extremist ideology that is intolerant of any divergent views and both have an extremely violent way of, um, “engaging others” with those views. Oh, and both give warnings that they are going to kill innocent people–and everyone tends to look the other way:

The FBI is investigating two firebombings targeting scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, as the latest in a rash of attacks against biomedical researchers who experiment on animals, authorities said.

Firebombed Feldheim Family Home: This is “Animal Rights”

One scientist and his family, including two small children, were forced to flee from a second-story window Saturday after a firebomb was lit on their front porch, filling the off-campus house with smoke, Santa Cruz police said. An adult was treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released.
Police were investigating the attack as attempted murder, said Santa Cruz police Capt. Steve Clark.
“That device had a real potential to put that family in jeopardy,” Clark said. He described the bomb as a “Molotov cocktail on steroids.” . . .
Also Saturday morning, a firebomb destroyed a car belonging to another researcher parked at faculty housing on campus. Investigators said they were treating the attacks as “domestic terrorism.”
The attacks came four days after police obtained threatening animal rights pamphlets left at a Santa Cruz coffeehouse containing the names and home addresses of UC Santa Cruz scientists.
“Animal abusers everywhere beware,” the pamphlets read. “We know where you live.”

Molecular biologist David Feldheim, whose front door was charred, was among the researchers on the list, the Santa Cruz Sentinel reported. According to his Web site, Feldheim’s lab uses mice to study the development of brain functions involved in eyesight.
Authorities would not identify the researcher whose car was destroyed but said that person’s name was not listed in the pamphlet. . . .
Police said they have no suspects in Saturday’s attacks, the first against UC Santa Cruz scientists since February, when animal rights activists showed up at the house of a breast cancer researcher during her young daughter’s birthday party.
The masked protesters pounded on the front door, and one threw a punch at the researcher’s husband as he tried to chase them away, according to police. The FBI is still investigating that case.
In recent years, three UCLA researchers who use non-human primates have been targeted with firebombs, though two failed to ignite. Animal rights groups claimed responsibility for all three attacks.
More recently, masked protesters targeting the University of California, Berkeley, have scrawled graffiti and broken windows at scientists’ homes.

Hmmm . . . eyesight, the brain, and breast cancer–none of these are more important than protecting rodents, right? Nauseating.
Even more nauseating is the response of the animal rights crowd to these attacks:

A spokesman for the North American Animal Liberation press office, which commonly posts messages from groups taking credit for animal rights violence, issued a statement Sunday saying it had not received any claims of responsibility for the attacks.
“It’s regrettable that certain scientists are willing to put their families at risk by choosing to do wasteful animal experiments,” press office spokesman Jerry Vlasak said in the statement.

In another interview, Vlasak basically declared open war on the children of scientists:

“If their father is willing to continue risking his livelihood in order to continue chopping up animals in a laboratory than his children are old enough to recognize the consequences,” said Vlasak, a former animal researcher who is now a trauma surgeon.

Yup, attack the innocent victims. Just like the Muslims do.
And just like the Muslims, the CAIR of animal rights–PETA a/k/a PUTAh, People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals and humans–won’t condemn the attacks. They’re strangely silent.
Cat got your tongue?
Watch the video.

David Feldheim, one of the scientists targeted, was injured and speaks out about the attacks on himself and his familly.

The animal rights movement is an offshoot of a secular culture that has ceased to recognize the moral uniqueness of man and which insists upon reducing him to the mere status of the beasts. Thus, it comes as no surprise that those who seek to return mankind to the jungle, conduct themselves in a manner befitting the laws of the jungle.

There is also a similarity between the animal rights folks and the Nazis. They both hated human beings and loved animals to excess. Under the Nazis, there was concern for the welfare of animals. This touching concern was missing for human beings, particularly for Jews. Even though the Jews were viewed as subhuman, they deserved none of the protection of mere animals. So if animals are holier than man, its just a mere matter of time before human life is expendable. Oh wait – isn’t that exactly what the animal folks are demonstrating, by targeting scientists and their families with terror – now? In their world, some animals are more equal than others and man isn’t the most equal animal of them all. Just the opposite, like the Jew was in the Nazi time.

In other wards, we’ll firebomb and kill your family if you don’t quit testing on Rodents… That is the most vile and evil comment I’ve seen in a while. These tactics are the same used by the mafia, Nazis, and terrorists… Oh hell, these ARE Terrorists!
By the way, for all those Dems & Libs that call Conservatives Nazis??? THey need to do a little reading. Nazis were socialists much like the ones of today running the left coast.

Guidance can be found in the answer to the question, ‘What would George Washington do?’
Of course the correct answer can only be derived by doing some homework and actually reading one or more of the excellent biographies about Washington.
(hint: Washington would solve the problem.)

So, is the North American Animal Liberation a front for the ALF and ELF? If so, I’m sure Osama/Onama will soon be begging them for money and votes in exchange for immunity and vegan call girls.
Seriously, I hope everyone has their guns on them. The ELF and ALF have no problem with murder and terror, as they’re usually Leftist rich kids and trust fund babies with a single helix to their name.
Remember the only way to stop a terrorist: shoot ’em! They’ll not negotiate or listen to soothing poems. These domestic gangs/terrorists/5th columnists just kill folks and then go off for drug-and-booze induced fornication afterwards. They get off on evil.
Please, ensure your own safety with a guard dog, a shotgun, rifle, handguns, machetes, pepper spray, or anything else that will make them cry for Nancy Pelosi’s loving embrace.
