Apparently, the response to Paul's plea for help was underwhelming. Not one check? Poor, poor Paul.
Denied entry into Israel in 2006, Larudee was once described in the Jerusalem Post as one of the International Solidarity Movement's "top leaders"
Security officials said that Larudee was one of the ISM's top leaders and was behind anti-Israel activity during IDF operations in the territories during the height of the Intifada between 2002 and 2004. Officials said that he was once found in the home of a suicide bomber and that he participated in a violent anti-Israel demonstration. "This person is a danger to the state," one official said. "He is one of the ISM leaders, was in the past involved in anti-Israel activity and therefore will not be allowed to stay in the country."

Paul, I regretfully send you this second letter and will publish it publicly as you have left us no choice. You have appeared in the media over the last week, often stating that you organized the Welcome to Palestine campaign. All statements you have made in regards to this campaign were false. As organizers, we were surprised by your statements as you were never part of this campaign. Sadly, your declarations about our campaign being about the right of return have confused the media and brought on damage to our basic plan. We appreciate your will to work for Palestine but trying to take over any activity has profoundly affected the trust we have in you and we would be very surprised if any respectful organization in Palestine will be willing to work with you. We urge you to stop giving statements to the media in the name of the Welcome to Palestine campaign.
On behalf the "Welcome to Palestine" campaign
Was it his ties to Iran's mullahs, and his open support for terror groups? Was it his endorsement and promotion of notorious Jew-haters like Gilad Atzmon and Alison Weir? Was it his connection to the frighteningly conspiratorial International Union of a Unified Ummah?
Whatever the reason, its time for the aging activist to take on a new hobby. Have you considered macrame, Paul?
