WASHINGTON, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A fair-employment, human rights group has reported sustained threats, some explicitly violent, to the FBI.
The Capitol Hill-based Holy Land Principles, Inc. has received anonymous phone calls plus emails of menacing and threatening nature.
The repeated and identified emails from two brothers — one living in Maryland and the other in an illegal Settlement in Israel— are particularly menacing, malicious, and explicitly and graphically violent.
The target of the threats is Irish-born Catholic priest, Fr. Sean Mc Manus, President of the Holy Land Principles, Inc. and the Irish National Caucus. The Holy Land Principles is a corporate code of conduct for American companies doing business in Israel-Palestine, based on the very effective Mac Bride Principles for Northern Ireland, which Fr. Mc Manus also launched in 1984.
The Holy Land Principles are pro-Jewish, pro-Palestinian and pro-company. The Principles do not call for quotas, reverse discrimination, divestment, disinvestment or boycotts. The Principles do not take any position on solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian issue. The Principles do not try to tell the Palestinians or the Israelis what to do.
The Holy Land Principles only call for fair employment by American companies in Palestine-Israel, and have three times been approved by the SEC.
Fr. Mc Manus said: "Because of my life-long non-violent struggle for Irish justice, I am well-used to threats. However, the current best advice on Cyber Bullying/Cyber Stalking — especially if it contains reference to violence, sexual or otherwise — is always to report it to the proper authorities."
Since Fr. Mc Manus reported the threats of violence to the FBI, the Cyber Stalking has escalated.
The brother in the illegal Settlement in Israel — in perhaps an example of international terrorism—has now suggested in an email to his brother in Maryland that they should join together to give Fr. Mc Manus a violent kicking. And in a display of self-entitlement— and of being above the law — the brother in the Settlement sent Fr. Mc Manus a copy of his violent email.
Fr. Mc Manus added: "It is intolerable that I as an American citizen should be receiving violent threats from the Middle East at this troubled time—especially since all I am doing is urging American companies to sign the Holy Land Principles. Who can possibly oppose fair employment by American companies? Why should that evoke such hatred and violence?"
