M20: Chicago Mobilizes Against the War (tags)
In January, representatives of over 90 antiwar and community organizations gathered to begin organizing the Chicago area's response to the 4th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq - a mass march on Michigan Ave. As the scene of the largest mass false arrest in Chicago history and an on-going free speech battle with the city, organizing for the right to march on Michigan Avenue was seen as a symbol of the ongoing battle to defend civil liberties in Chicago, and in the nation at large. This year's march will be preceded by walkouts and feeder marches from area high school and college campuses.

"The United States of Israel?" – by Robert Fisk (tags)
Perhaps the most incendiary paragraph in the essay [The Israel Lobby] - albeit one whose contents have been confirmed in the Israeli press - discusses Israel's pressure on the United States to invade Iraq. "Israeli intelligence officials had given Washington a variety of alarming reports about Iraq's WMD programmes," the two academics write, quoting a retired Israeli general as saying: "Israeli intelligence was a full partner to the picture presented by American and British intelligence regarding Iraq's non-conventional capabilities."

"Thou Shalt Not Criticize the Zionists!" (tags)
There is an 11th Commandment! It states: “Thou Shalt Not Criticize the Zionists.” Recently, the Brit’s Royal Court Theater wanted to put on a play, in NYC, entitled, “My Name is Rachel Corrie.” Corrie was the peace activist, who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer, on March 16, 2003, in Occupied Gaza. The NYC theater company, however, has “postponed” the production because Jewish leaders objected to it. This is an example of that 11th Commandment!
a post-'normal' booke review: chellis glendinning on recovery from western civilization (tags)
this review employs two main elements: orthodox "texting" and as well, permitting myself to art into another direction than perhaps previously anticipated. incorporated into this post is image, non-blunt points, rectangles, and other lines, along with 'marginal' commentary. All of this certainly cuts down on the verbiage and gets to "the point" (and allows for more broad input from those whose spirit just really ain't oriented to 'composing' formal ideas of text, re: "book reviews"). Lastly, this way allows people to leave *traces* of their spirit in a less mediated way.

ART OF WAR: Dreams of Muhammad (tags)
IN MEMORY OF THE PALESTINIAN BOYS KILLED BY ISRAEL. These Palestinian boys were gunned down, often by Israeli snipers from fortified positions, that picked them out of the crowd, using high power rifles with telescopic lenses and silencers, who shot these boys in the heart, in the head. They were among the more than 140 Palestinians who were killed during the first month the intifada; killed before there were any suicide bombings in Israel, killed for daring to throw rocks at Israeli tanks, killed for wanting their FREEDOM!
