And linking the anti-capitalist violence of the Rote Armee Fraktion (RAF) -- in English, the Red Army Fraction (or Faction) and called the Baader-Meinhof Group (or Gang) by the bourgeois press -- with the violence against mostly innocent, mostly working-class people that is usually attributed to "al Qaida" is disgusting. One can reject the strategic and tactical orientation of the RAF without slandering them!

One action by the RAF, by the way, is clearly supportable even by pacifists. That is the destruction with explosives of a newly-built high-tech prison in Weiterstadt on 27 March 1993. They managed to do that without hurting anybody -- the security guards were tied up out of harm's way -- while causing over US$70 million in damage! That action should be held up as a model for dealing with the U.S. bourgeoisie's penchant for building prisons!
