    The extemist group known as the E.L.F. is back to its handbook of terroristic actions again. Even though it seems that they are untouchable by the F.B.I. they continue their destructive ways. Motivated by the "green agenda", these so called eco activists war on development continues. Causing physical injury, and costing property owners and develper's millions, the E.L.F. has shown no remorse or compassion in their wake of ruin.

    I feel a little better now. You have identified some genuine eco-terroists. I was a little concerned as there didnít seem to be much differentiation between these bomb-throwing criminals and activists in your earlier post over on the advocacy area.

    I am sorry squeezer, but that was a Fox News intro not mine. The documentary they did defined the identity of the terroists.

    We have the ELF in Britain, and , unlike in the US, they have actually injured people (the manager of a commercial animal testing lab in Huntingdon). Most of their attacks consist of vandalism and destruction, rather than attacks on people.
    They are pretty much condemmed by the vast majority of environmental protestors who use non-violent methods to make their protest known.
    Non violent protest is still a right in both the UK and USA.

    We have had experience of violent terrorism in the UK, and it is in quite a different league to the ELF. One former leader of an IRA unit is now the education minister for Northern Ireland. It seems that bombs do get you somewhere.

    Do you have a better link? I get an error message when I click on it. MSNBC says there is no such story.

    Did you notice the date of Hunter's post? Over 2-1/2 years ago. No wonder the link doesn't work.

    Where does this concept come from, this tactical equivalent to attending a debate, hopping onto the podium with a bullhorn, and shouting "My side must be right because I'm the most obnoxious one in the room!"? How can they not see that it undermines their cause?
