Don't You Just Love It?

Suppose you received an invitation on the Middle East which promised that

This event is intended to foster a more open debate, leading to new approaches and equitable solutions.

Wouldn't you be excited?

Well, calm down. Here are the details

Israel, Palestine, and the US Congress: Realities and Opportunities, Part 1, CNI's Public Forum at the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC. Wednesday, 21 May 2008, 12:00pm - 2:00

Lunch will be provided

Featuring a panel of experts:

-Dr. John Mearsheimer, Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago

-Uri Avnery, leading Israeli peace activist and former Knesset Member

-Menachem Klein, Professor of Political Science, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

-Honorable Edward Peck, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, and noted lecturer on the Middle East

-Honorable David Newton, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, and former head of Radio Free Iraq

-Introduction and Moderator: Honorable James Abourezk, former U.S. Senator

Can a new Congress and Administration benefit from a fresh look at errors of the past, present realities, and possibilities moving forward? This sixty-year struggle has an obvious and major impact on U.S. interests around the globe. What are we missing?


We're missing balance and a new fresh look, one with dialogue.

P.S. CNI supports the most radical extreme groups around like Sabeel and If Americans Knew

Me again...just cruising through your blog (I'm choosing to ignore your burkini posts...I have one of those! Common it's not that bad...grumble grumble). Now, this stumped me. Sabeel, "extreme radical group"? really? I'm trying to understand. I think they seem pretty tame as far as groups go, so what gives?

AND I hate that word burkini--burkini, annoying....still grumbling...they be hatin' on my swimsuit. grrrrr.

Oh, I don't mind it. Just pointing out things. You'll see posts of mine here on the anomalies of Hareidi fashion as well. I respect modesty. After all, there is the principle that if a woman has taken pains to display, she can't grumble when oogled.

Anyway, as for Sabeel, try this for how some of us view the organization.

Then come back. Have a great week.
