"Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are 'acceptable crimes' when used for the animal cause."
- Alex Pacheco, Director, PETA
"I wish we all would get up and go into the labs and take the animals out or burn them down."
-Ingrid Newkirk, President, PETA, National Animal Rights Convention '97, June 27, 1997
"If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then, of course we’re going to be, as a movement, blowing things up and smashing windows … I think it’s a great way to bring about animal liberation … I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow. I think it's perfectly appropriate for people to take bricks and toss them through the windows ... Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do it."
- Bruce Friedrich, PETA’s vegan campaign coordinator, at the “Animal Rights 2001” conference
"Even if animal tests produced a cure for AIDS, we’d be against it."
- PETA president and co-founder Ingrid Newkirk, in the September 1989 issue of Vogue
"Our nonviolent tactics are not as effective. We ask nicely for years and get nothing. Someone makes a threat, and it works."
- Ingrid Newkirk, in the April 8, 2002 issue of US News & World Report
"I will be the last person to condemn ALF [the Animal Liberation Front]."
- Ingrid Newkirk, in the New York Daily News, December 7, 1997
The Intelligence Report also reveals that known ELF and ALF activists are routinely invited to speak at the yearly Washington, D.C. animal-rights conference sponsored by PETA and the Humane Society of the United States. Further, the IR quotes PETA's Bruce Friedrich as stating:
If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then of course we're going to be blowing things up and smashing windows. … I think it's a great way to bring animal liberation, considering the level of suffering, the atrocities. I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and banks that fund them, exploded tomorrow.
PETA should be roundly condemned for permitting one of its own to advocate violence and for associating with violent groups such as ALF. In this regard, it is worth pointing out that ALF has gone so far down the terrorist path that it posted a how-to-commit-arson manual on its website. Called "Arson Around With Auntie ALF," the tract promotes the use of incendiaries to destroy animal "abusing" facilities because "pound for pound" they "can do more damage than explosives against many types of targets." There is a downside, however, which ARL terrorists are advised to consider when deciding how to best carry out their planned attacks. During the "time lag" between the setting of the fire and "the destruction of the target," Arson Around warns, the "fire may be discovered and controlled or put out." Thus, even though it may do less damage, the upside of explosives is that "once detonated, [the explosion] has done its work."
WASHINGTON, -- As the frightening images of a massive August 2nd arson are seared into the minds of San Diego residents, many are left to wonder just who the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) is and who pays its bills. As law enforcement begins to look for answers, members of the public should know that the shadowy ELF enjoys financial backing from at least one tax-exempt, above-ground group -- the activists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). A recent federal income tax return filed by PETA shows a $1,500 cash payment to the "North American Earth Liberation Front." And Rodney Coronado, a convicted arsonist who previously received $70,400 from PETA, was in San Diego on the day of the University City arson.

For several years now, we've been hunting alleged terrorists in the middle east when we should really be after the known terrorists that exist right here in America. Who are these domestic terrorists, you may ask? Well, they look just like the rest of us. Some men, some women, some Caucasian, some Asian, some Black, some Hispanic, some Middle Eastern. They have members within every nationality and ethnicity. They have been responsible for countless deaths, investigated many times in conjuction with crimes such as murder, arson, bombings, etc. The worst part of it, is that they have non-profit status within the United States. We've all heard of them, yet most don't know much about them. Who are they? Pro-life extremists? No. Al Quaeda? No. Then who?

The reason these domestic terror groups (which i agree with the cause, but not the means) are not targeted is they dont inhabit areas with vast mineral wealth... theres no financial reason to declare war on ones own people...
