And from May My friend posted this a while ago .. Muslims only constitute 6% of groups and non-Muslims are a whopping 94% on FBI's list. Animal Liberation Front: Is known for sabotaging animal testing facilities, etc. The FBI explicitly said that ALF is the “leading domestic terrorist threat.” Alpha 66 and Omega 7: Cuban exiles opposed to anyone who takes a moderate approach to Castro. They are responsible for many bombings. Army of God: Anti-abortion and anti *** Known for bombing at least two abortion clinics, a *** nightclub, and the Summer Olympics in 1996. They believe that Anglo-Saxons are the only true children of God. Aryan Nations: A white nationalist, neo-Nazi, and Christian Identity group. The RAND Corporation described it as the “first truly nationwide terrorist network.” Black Liberation Army: They carried out a series of bombings, robberies, and prison breaks.

Directed by Marshall Curry, Sam Cullman. With Daniel McGowan, Lisa McGowan, Tim Lewis, Kirk Engdall. A rare behind-the-curtain look at the Earth Liberation Front, the radical environmental group that the FBI calls America's 'number one domestic terrorist threat.'
It never ceases to amaze me how prevalent the belief is that terrorist only come from other countries and never from our own country. I guess many people find it easier to forget about homegrown terrorists like Timothy McVeigh, Charles Whitman, and Robert Jay Matthews. I also find it somewhat puzzling how many people think terrorists are only ever motivated by religion. I will cite again Timothy McVeigh, whose bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City was entirely motivated by politics. I will also point out the terrorist group Earth Liberation Front, a band of ecoterrorists who use sabotage and guerrilla warfare tactics as a means of preventing "the destruction of the environment." They are not motivated by religious ideals, but by their love of the environment. Theirs is a case of taking active environmentalism too far. There are plenty of other examples, but I do not find it necessary to compile the full list here.
HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE WORLD Americas The U.S. government and Internet companies have agreed on new practices to publicly disclose the extent of surveillance and private company cooperation with U.S. intelligence agencies. After seven years spent in hiding, Canadian citizen Rebecca Rubin was sentenced to five years in prison and nearly $14 million in penalties for her role in 10 arsons committed by eco-terrorism groups the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front. The U.N. International Court of Justice handed down its decision in a maritime territory dispute between Peru and Chile, awarding much of the disputed area to Peru while allowing Chile to keep particularly fertile fisheries. Asia A Vietnamese banking official received a life sentence and 22 others were sentenced to 20 years in prison in Vietnam's largest ever fraud trial; they were convicted of illegally appropriating assets, forgery, and defrauding investors of $200 million. A South Korean newspaper is reporting that Kim Jong-un ma ...
The Heroes We Will Never Know By: Taylor Niemy Founder/Organizer/Activist of Kitsap Against Monsanto & Co-Founder/Organizer/Activist of SPARK! Activism comes in many forms. People inform, protest, write petitions, and many more actions meant to change people’s mental understanding of a cause. There is also direct action. Direct action is used to take matters into our own hands. It is a form of action that changes things physically. Direct action can be a very effective tactic in the activist world. Using direct action can be risky because people do not ask permission to change things. It catches the attention of those in power like no other action. Because of that, many people who use direct action must remain hidden to continue their work. Groups like the Earth Liberation Front, the Animal Liberation Front, Anonymous, and using the tactic Black Bloc require their identities to be hidden so they can continue to do their work. The people who use these forms of direct action are some of the most sought af ...

I spray painted ELF (Earth Liberation Front) on my neighbor's SUV when I was 13. Ha. Really sticking it to the man. So rebellious.
Reading If a Tree Falls: A story of the Earth Liberation Front from
That documentary about the Earth Liberation Front is really good. It's a little biased but still shows both sides pretty well.
Fueled by a recent onslaught of disinformation and fear-mongering about plant biotechnology – or perhaps by its continuing successes — extremists engaged in acts of eco-terrorism are back after a ten year hiatus. We are seeing a return to criminal acts of vandalism, which the FBI calls economic sabotage, against research field trials of genetically engineered (GE; also known as “genetically modified,” or GM) crop plants.  Over two nights in June, unknown criminals destroyed two separate research Oregon field trials of GE sugar beets that are resistant to the effects of the herbicide glyphosate. The term “economic sabotage,” which was first coined and is preferred by eco-terror groups, is too tepid.  This is not like a plumber puncturing the tires on a competitor’s van.  These violent acts are the kind of terrorism that historically has been linked to cells of extreme environmental and animal rights activists with names like Earth First!, Animal Liberation and Earth Liberation Front (ELF). ...

This is why I do not consider the Animal Liberation Front, SeaShepherd, or the Earth Liberation Front terrorists.
Earth Liberation Front is far right? Bill Ayers and his cohorts were far right? Matthews is an *** extraordinaire.
Yeah - The Earth Liberation Front and Weathermen were hard-core right wing groups.
Guess he forgot about the Earth Liberation Front, Black Liberation Army, Weather Underground or UFF as well.

This the type of prson who belongs to Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and ELF (Earth Liberation Front). When they are caught they turn on each other on top of having no regard for others. Jacob Ferguson, of Eugene, Oregon Jake Ferguson – ELF Founder, Informer & Snitch Court records indicate that by spring 2004, Ferguson was wearing a hidden recording device in an effort to bait others, into incriminating themselves. He admitted in a cooperating agreement in 2007 that he set fire to the US Forest Service Ranger Station in Detroit, OR and a government pickup in 1996. He admitted to being granted immunity plus $50,000 for his cooperation, and received 5 years probation. Ferguson, searched out others and had them recount experiences while he was wearing a recording device. The recordings provided investigators the evidence that they needed to convict Daniel McGowan, Jonathan Paul, Joyanna Zacher and Nathan Block (who all received sentences of 5-7 years). Ferguson wore the hidden recorder to the 2005 annual E ...

Tre Arrow Tre Arrow (born Michael Scarpitti in 1974) is a green anarchist[1][2] who gained prominence in the U.S. state of Oregon in the late 1990s and early 2000s for his environmental activism,[3] bid for Congress as a Pacific Green Party candidate,[4] and then for his arrest and later conviction for committing acts of arson on cement and logging trucks.[5][6] He unsuccessfully sought political asylum in Canada, and was extradited to Portland, Oregon, on February 29, 2008, to face 14 counts of arson and conspiracy.[7] These actions were claimed as acts of protest by the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). On June 3, 2008, Arrow pled guilty to 2 counts of arson and was sentenced with 78 months in prison.[8] He was released to a halfway house in 2009.[9] Arrow first came to public attention in July 2000 when he scaled a U.S. Forest Service building in downtown Portland, Oregon and lived on a nine-inch ledge for eleven days, to protest the plan to log near Eagle Creek, Oregon.[5] His protest played an important ...

7 Things You Didn't Know About PETA By ConsumerFreedom.com Sunday, January 28, 2007 1) PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk has described her group's overall goal as "total animal liberation." This means no meat, no milk, no zoos, no circuses, no wool, no leather, no hunting, no fishing, and no pets (not even seeing-eye dogs). PETA is also against all medical research that requires the use of animals. 2) Despite its constant moralizing about the "unethical" treatment of animals by restaurant owners, grocers, farmers, scientists, anglers, and countless other Americans, PETA has killed over 14,400 dogs and cats at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. During 2005, PETA put to death over 90 percent of the animals it collected from members of the public. 3) PETA has given tens of thousands of dollars to convicted arsonists and other violent criminals. This includes a 2001 donation of $1,500 to the North American Earth Liberation Front (ELF), an FBI-certified "domestic terrorist" group responsible for do ...
