This is not a book for those who want surface, sanitized, accounts of the Palestinian Diaspora. Ramzy Baroud is committed to truth telling, and his new book will undoubtedly disturb, shock, and outrage his readers. One can only hope that those who claim to love and support the state of Israel will not only read, but study, this important book. Not to make anyone feel ashamed, but so that even Israel's most ardent supporters will understand that no nation can brutalize, indeed terrorize, an innocent people forever.

Actor Mike Farrell on Politics and Hollywood: M*A*S*H Couldn't Be On TV Today (tags)
We now turn to an actor who knows a lot about Hollywood--not only did he he grow up here but he has been very active with the Screen Actors Guild. We are joined by Mike Farrell. Perhaps he is best known for his role as Captain B.J. Hunnicutt in the popular TV-series MASH. But Farrell is also known for his social justice activism.

The nation's attorney general is on the ropes and swinging wildly. (tags)
Once again, Mr. Ashcroft has utterly missed the point. As many commentators have patiently tried to explain to him--we must, after all, talk to him as one talks to a punch-drunk fighter--the point is not whether federal authorities have yet started checking what we read; the point is that the U.S. Patriot Act gives those authorities the right to monitor what we read. Giving anyone that right is exactly what’s wrong, Mr. Ashcroft. If we are hysterics, then you, sir, are a dangerous dimwit.

HIGHTOWER: Shredding Ashcroft (tags)
Who is it that rushes to the barricades of our nation's democracy, daring to confont John "Mad Dog" Ashcroft as he rips into our Bill of Rights and tries to strip We the People of our hard-won personal liberties? Not the Congress – it's meekly going along, providing the authority and funding for Ashcroft's maniacal assault. Not the puffheads of the media – they're too busy shouting "patriotism" and cheering the Bushites to see, hear, or speak any evil by the emperor.
