Rosa Schmidt is an American married to an Iranian, hence the second last name, Azadi.  She's a long-time peace activist with a background in anthropology, education, and public health.  She's also one of the people who walked away from the falling Twin Towers on 9/11 and returned to help with the recovery effort.  Out of this experience of destruction, death, and horror came a deeper commitment to human life everywhere and specifically to non-violence.  Retired and splitting her time between rural New York and urban Iran, Rosa Schmidt is doing all she can to promote world peace.

Reading "Guernica" in Tehran I often worry about my own country bombing me. I live with my husband in Iran, and this is one of the countries on Bush's blacklist. That wouldn't worry me so much if it weren't that huge swaths of the American public-not to mention my own Senators-have apparently swallowed the hype and blacklisted us, too. This evening I sat with Iranians studying Picasso's art and Paul Eluard's poem about Guernica.

"Blackbeard" Bin Laden and the Great American Protection Racket: Can We Be Fooled Again? Whether the guy in the video is bin Laden or just an actor in a fake beard, we Americans are expected to fall for it and cough up the cash. . . . Enough! I say we shouldn't pay protection money to the military-industrial-security complex or its friends in Wall Street any longer. It's time we make friends with the rest of humanity and seriously figure out how to beat our swords into plowshares.

A Modest Proposal: U.S. Statehood for Israel? Just think of the possibilities. Making Israel the 51st U.S. state could be a win-win-win solution for our country, for Israel, and for Middle East peace. The way I see it, Israel's security would get a boost at a lower cost to the U.S. taxpayer, and the biggest cause of conflict in the Middle East would be resolved, reducing the threat of terrorism.

How Americans Can Support Democracy in the Middle East--Without War and Without the U.S.-Middle East Free Trade Area Part I of II: Democratic Aspirations in Iran and the Middle East I agree with one thing Condoleeza Rice said: we shouldn't give up on the democratic aspirations of the people of the Middle East! She's wrong on what to do, though. The best way we Americans can help Middle Eastern people achieve democracy is to get our military out of their faces and work on improving democracy in our own country.
