Torpedoing the Lebanon Flotilla

aid-shipControlling Civil Disobedience
 
Ten days ago I left California to join other U.S. citizens on the Lebanese Boat Brigade—the first such effort to penetrate Israel’s blockade of Gaza since the deadly attack on the Freedom Flotilla May 31. I joined other Americans—Jeff K and Noel I from Boston, Ron D from Maui, Bill S from South Carolina, and Sister Pat C from Wisconsin—enticed by an announcement from the Council for the National Interest and the Palestine Civil Rights Campaign to bring women, journalists and writers to this latest effort to break the siege of Gaza now in its 3rd year.

Spotlight on Israeli Textbooks

Israeli TextbooksAs many of you might know there is a long standing controversy over Palestinian textbooks. The Israelis, their Zionist supporters, and even the U.S. government has lined up to complain loudly and bitterly that Palestinian textbooks do not include Israel on their maps, or they show an Israel that is geographically small. They speak of Zionism as an "enemy ideology" and the IDF as a conquering army. They describe Israeli settlers as "illegal immigrants" or worse. And, particularly in the complaints offered by US government, there is a demand for greater emphasis on "peace and tolerance." The Palestinian text books have to change, according to the critics. Indeed, all of Palestinian education has to be "reformed."
