Use WikiLeaks to Flood Congress Today!
Not since the Pentagon Papers have the inner workings of war been exposed
to the public in such an explosive fashion as with the
WikiLeaks' revelations on the Afghan war. Last night we talked to Daniel
Ellsberg, who made public the Pentagon Papers that helped end the war in
Vietnam. He said:
"Wikileaks has given us a picture of the this war that shows a total
replay, as in Vietnam, of a corrupt, incompetent set of allies whose main
merit is a willingness to be paid by Congress and be supported by the drug
trade. We are clearly mired in an escalating stalemate. The troop increase
Obama has requested will make no difference.
I admire the courage of Bradley Manning for sacrificing himself to make
the public aware of the futility of this war. Let us make sure his sacrifice
is not in vain by using these revelations to force Congress to stop funding
The "leak" comes precisely during the week that Congress will be voting
on another $33 billion for war. Thanks to your calls, Congressional visits
and determination this past month, the Administration has not been able to
get the quick vote on the war funding they requested. Your efforts have had
an impact; now we have to open the floodgates of opposition and drown the
funding that would send more of our soldiers to die in vain.
To fuel your passion for these calls,
here's the link to the section on civilian casualties, including
incidents like the
gunner at a roadblock who killed a 14-year-old girl and wounded a
toddler or the
Marine air strike that left seven children dead. You can also read our
WikiLeak talking points here!
Call 888-493-5443 now. Tell your Congressperson that the WikiLeaks'
documents confirm that this war is immoral and unwinnable.
Whether we succeed in blocking the war funding or not, we'll be able to
clearly identify Congressional war enablers and war opponents, so we can
punish and reward them when they're home for August and at the polls in
Thank you for turning this leak into a tsunami of anti-war pressure,

Facebook prohibits the word "Palestinian"
Imagine the uproar if facebook was blocking "Israelis" or "Jews"? Is
such a thing even thinkable?
On 7/25/2010 2:05 PM, Anthony Saidy
The folks at Palestinian Refugee ResearchNet thought they'd create a
Facebook page only to discover: Facebook blocks the term "Palestinian"! (H/t
Jillian C Cork.)
Are Palestinians the only group
so blocked from making pages? Well, not really… after a little fiddling
around, I discovered that al-Qaida Refugee ResearchNet and Nazi Refugee
ResearchNet are filtered too.
It does seem a bit
odd, however, that a population of up to 12 million people, receiving more
than a billion dollars in international aid, recognized by the UN, and
enjoying a degree of formal diplomatic recognition from the United States —
is placed in the same filtered category as Nazis and al-Qaida.
I've sent an email to Facebook customer service—we'll see what they say.
Just to be sure, I tried myself to create a "Palestinian sports" page —
Arabists were ousted from the US State Department,
Israel-Firsters took over
Re: Obit: James Akins: Envoy foresaw '73 oil embargo
When reading Robert D. Kaplan's book, "Arabists", I thought
it to be interesting.
Before completing Kaplan's book, I called
James Akins in Washington. We had an informative conversation in which he
corrected me, as in Kaplan's book he insulted Akins, denigrating him. I took
a second look at those quotations, I left a marker in the book, and did not
complete the reading.
I find this obituary to be a bit slanted, as
if being an "Arabist" or pro-Arab is a fault.
At the time, Akins and his
fellow Arabists had an excellent relationship with the Arab countries which,
in turn, sought out the United States as a friend. It was a healthy
and peaceful time, and the press did not take advantage to promote any
anti-Arab myths or bias.
Akins continued the conversation, and told
me that most or all of the Arabists were ousted
from the State Department
for which he worked. They had to find work elsewhere. Those who believed
otherwise, took over that department.

Eleventh International Kashmir
Kashmir American Council And The Association of
Kashmir Peace Conference
“India-Pakistan Relations: Breaking the
Deadlock over Kashmir”
29th, 2010, from 8.45am – 6.00pm, at the Cannon Caucus Rm #
Friday, July 30th, 2010, from
9:00am – 5:30pm, at the Rayburn, Gold Room # 2168
Eleventh International Kashmir Peace Conference will be held on Thursday,
July 29th & Friday, 30th, 2010 on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. The
primary objective of this conference is to explore various possibilities to
set a stage for the settlement of the Kashmir dispute. Speakers will
represent Kashmir on both sides of the cease-fire Line; from India, Pakistan
and include eminent personalities with an interest in this explosive global
The international community upholds the principled position
that the future status of Kashmir be ascertained in accordance with the
wishes and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. When the Kashmir
dispute was brought before the Security Council in 1948, a commitment to
this was evident and remains valid. The rights of self-determination are
clearly articulated in the United Nations and no one has the right to coerce
or diminish the identity of another.
The urgent goal of resolving the
Kashmir dispute cannot be left to the two governments to achieve.
Bilateral talks have proven barren for more than 61 years; they have lacked
a sense of urgency. It requires the engagement of a multilateral effort with
the participation of the Kashmiris themselves.
A durable peace, with
the development of harmonious relations for the entire region, will serve
the vital interests of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir and India as well as
the international community. With good faith by all concerned parties
should work together towards a final settlement of the Kashmir dispute.
Nuclear proliferation and rising levels of violence only exacerbate the
urgency of the matter.
