A guide to the Perplexed: activists or actors? you decide!

Posted: 01/05/2013 by editormary in Rant / Musings / Discussion

Take a look at the following screenshot. You may need to enlarge it by clicking to read the text. Believe me, it is pretty incredible.


Pretty sickening that someone considering himself something of the vanguard of activism for Humanity, to be at the helm of a new era of collective consciousness (in his own words), uses a public internet site (Salem News) to depict a violent rape scenario and to then somehow twist it, thinking others will agree with his logic, that it is the “victim’s” own sexual fantasy, but that he of course will resist even if doing so would cause permanent bodily harm to the victim. This is just a snippet of the grotesque dossier amounting to a whopping 122 pages when copied onto a Word document, which, if it is not socially deviant, is at least the result of an obsession. Should a person respond to someone like that? The advice anyone would give to someone who was the target of such sociopathic “interest” would be to beware that he is sick and to not even deal with his disorder, as response to it might just “excite him more”.

Yet, the fact is that there is a tiny little galaxy of persons who do circulate around Siraj Davis, despite the fact that he is the only one who “likes” his own posts on FB, and one of these persons decided some time ago to confide in others about her relationship. However, as Aretha Franklin sang, it’s important to know “who’s zoomin who”.

A Shepard’s Facebook Guide to Hypocrisy.

Little did the American hero in the Middle East Siraj know that another heroic American in the Middle East was weaving little webs of deception. Yet, he wrote:

Siraj Davis Michael Langston and Mary Shepard , we have another saying from the region here… athou athouee sadeeqee

(the enemy of my enemy is my friend) . I am sure that circumstances can form new friendships and alliances, and if those friendships and alliances are a far from ascertainable, then toleration and respect can be the least  I want us all to focus on the positive and I am sure we ALL can agree, Kim is not part of that positive.

Yes, friendships and alliances can form on account of circumstances, in fact, most friendships do form thanks to providence and circumstances that bring people to establish alliances, but one has to be more than a little DUMB to refer to someone as his SISTER who has this to say about him, (a day after their public love fest): (you can click on all the shots to enlarge them)


Should this story be of interest to anyone? It’s just some stuff that a few people have written on Facebook after all. It probably is nothing more than just a bit of local colour to the insane world where activists spend more time biting each other’s noses off than actually changing the lives of people they claim to be dedicating themselves to. However, when some of the players are demonstrating an interest in me that is almost pathological, it might be more useful to just show them a mirror, show them how they are considered in their own world, especially when they are out there soliciting others for money.

People should be what they say they are and they should not be hypocrites, right? Even though the players here are all extremely minor, as they are, if they are expecting others to trust them, they should be consistent. Siraj Davis is an obscure ESL teacher who seems to think he is at the cutting edge of activism, But, this isn’t about Siraj. This post is about his Sister Mary. (One of the Three Mary’s, which some may remember). Mary has a public persona where she engages in discussion with the hardcore Ken O’Keefe supporters underneath a screenshot by Siraj in a smear campaign against some woman who asked for the return of money she had lent or given to Siraj. Unfortunately, it was not possible to take a screenshot of the comments, as Siraj had to cancel the photos on his wall, due to the embarrassing nature of documenting his interest in porn clips of the “Sex with Mommy” genre, but I did copy the material in a document at the time. Mary Shepard promises enticing screenshots to give to Siraj. ENJOY the loving relationship!

Mary Shepard Carolyn, you don’t know anything about me. I’m definitely not Kimberly. But this is not about me, it’s about her. My brother Siraj asked me to contribute. He and I respect each other and I am happy to be his friend. I don’t care what anyone else thinks, I know who I am and what I believe in. In my comment I was not addressing you, nor did I insult anyone. Picking a fight is not the way to deal with the problem at hand, which is Kimberly Amatullah, not me.

Mary Shepard And I’m not asking for anyone’s forgiveness. What for? I was never a part of anything to do with Ken O’Keefe. I was a commenter asking questions. I walked away after a very short while. I lost friends over the whole thing – I didn’t think name calling and making accusations without hard evidence was very wise. I’m tired of these stupid and pointless facebook feuds. I have more screenshots for you, Siraj, if you want them. Otherwise, I’m finished here.

Siraj Davis Mary Shepard We are all a team and I would appreciate your help sis. It would benefit me, Michael, Daniel, and Ken. Any truth would be a help/ Thanks

Mary Shepard You have all my respect, Siraj, you’re a courageous man. And Allah is the best of planners – I’m still amazed at how small he has made this world. I stood on your shoulders in Amman. Your students loved you and you were a tough act to follow.

And, to the accusation that Mary Shepard was one of the combination of people that the Kenophiles referred to as “the Three Marys”, Mary Shepard replied:

Mary Shepard I was not one of the “Marys,” Mr. Mabsout. I was not involved. Mary Rizzo used to be my friend, but not anymore. I closed the door on the whole thing and I want it to stay closed, I’m bloody tired of it. The issue is Kimberly Amatullah. I am not here to ask for your trust. I’m giving Siraj my screenshots of her. He and I have both agreed that we are fed up with cyber bullies like her.

Exactly right, I am no longer one of her friends, but upon being told that Siraj was fixating on me and seeing some of his obsessive focus on his FB wall, I wrote a message to Mary and to others. A conversation began and here are some interesting screenshots of it. ENJOY!

And at that point, Mary Shepard realised she was “contributing clarity” to someone who already, paraphrasing her own words, “trusts her as far as she can throw her”. She left the conversation and probably hoped that everyone in the conversation group forgot all about it, especially if one was so supportive, close and affectionate with a guy who clearly has some issues with women and might find out that she was zooming him. Or was she? Remember, we are living in the weird and vampiristic world where today one is BFF and the next they are “someone’s ally for the moment” only to privately slam them as “fucking crazy crazy crazy” with those who question the extreme negation of being ever at any time considered as having been against Ken O’Keefe in the grouping labelled as “the Three Marys”.

There are quite a few other interesting and revealing quotes from Mary Shepard and from those in the Ken world.  But, they are for a future post.

  1. kimberly amatullah says:

    Thank you Mary R. for sharing this. I’ve been busy with a life outside the freaks and stalkers so I almost didn’t catch this latest (what seems to me) threat.

    Does Mary S. honestly think she knows me?
    Does she realize she is rallying with “crazy, crazy, crazy people” to do (???) something to me, stalk me, put me down, or out? She is clearly as insane as her misogynist cohorts; she only wishes to distance herself now that she is being ‘outed’ as a lunatic as well.

    All this because she THINKS someone infiltrated her ‘boss’? No pay? Isn’t this a recurring theme?

    Exactly what have I done to Miss Mary S.? Not a thing, I am as much a stranger as anyone to her and have no zionist inclination… I simply don’t deny people (and YES Jews are people) the opportunity to engage in a peace process. Exactly how does anyone else expect to proceed? O right, I forgot… that team, that league of shitheads who think they can BULLY and propose a single change in the events. They are sociopaths and lunatics, nothing more.

    And yes, they all belong reported to the FBI, and the messages contained herein will be reported as well. Thank you Mary R. for giving me the opportunity to protect myself from such vile and vainglorious idgits as Mary S., Siraj D., Daniel Mabsout and the ‘other’ Jesus (aka Kenster O’Con).


  2. Sahar says:

    Dear Mary Rizzo, Mary Sheppard and Kimberly Amatullah,

    Is this what “activism” is for guys? Constant arguments with other activists? Every time there is an argument within the international solidarity movement, it is always the same people involved. What is wrong with you people?

    Enough is enough. If you really are friends of Palestine you will go away and leave our cause alone!

  3. editor says:

    Such a good point! Arguing with other activists is time wasting and stupid. But when there is an important distinction to be made: when someone is ASKING FOR MONEY and for “endorsement” and forming a sort of “we are a club and you have to be part of it, if you are not, you are evil and must be destroyed and labelled as a zionist, terrorist, etc”, then one has to see if this “argument” is legitimate to point out to the other activists who may get caught in the web and become involved with people who will rip them off and in the end, who is paying for it? The Palestinians who DESERVE the funds, the attention and the empowerment to be the ones to dictate their own line.

    So, absolutely, if there are these games, deceptions and lies going on that are meant to galvanize energy towards the egos of the Siraj Davis’s (who contrary to what he claims, has done nothing of substance except write hagiography or demonization of other activists), Ken O’Keefe, who has yet to account for so many funds that have been given to him, withouth the projects behind them to show for it, Mary Shepard, who has never done much of anything except ask for money for her own living expenses, almost promoting herself as a cause, then it is not only right, it becomes necessary. You have the right to ignore it and move onto some other argument, which you will find more to your personal liking.

    I tend to agree with Mary R. and applaud your minimal expression (lacking all else) to notice the debacle before you; however, dismissing people you don’t even know, and directing them to engage or disengage as YOU see fit is rather… retarded.

    Who are you to tell anyone how to involve themselves in a matter that concerns the World? Do you know our connections to this Land? Of course you do not, yet you pretend?

    Always the same ones involved you say? Is that so? I haven’t solicited for monies, ever; unlike Ken O’Con, Siraj Davis or Mary Shepard. So by what authority do you tell me not to be involved in this, THAT, or any other thing?

    Sounds more like what I am getting accustomed to; idiotic people who LOVE the Western influence when it is banal, violent and haram… good luck with that! If you want to support freaks who lie, steal and more because they garnish lovely teardrop tattoos, or portend Islamic ways (meanwhile frequenting porn and mayhem), then by all means: Get to it!

    Otherwise, have something intelligent to say on the matter and HOW to protect people from shoveling money to false pretenders who NEVER come through for Palestine. You want more status quo? Well, you will get that or worse.

    And for your information, I am OUT.
    You do not get my monies, my attention or much else. I feel only a sense of obligation to be available for comment and inquiry to others who have had similar experience in this debacle.

    Sort your shite out and recognize what is true and real and maybe then I will become active again; until then, your country is riddled in crime, drugs and disgusting dispays of ANTI-Islamic behavior that I wouldn’t suggest to ANYONE to enter or engage with you or yours. I have my close friends and I know I can help THEM if need be; and they surely wouldn’t appreciate your telling me to butt-out. But hey! If you think you are Napoleon, who am I to say otherwise:)
