Ending the Year with same old prayer: Freedom for Vanunu Gaza and Palestine One of the very first questions I ever asked Vanunu was if he chose the name John Crossman because of St. John of the Cross, the Spanish mystic poet and Carmelite brother who was an ardent disciple of Theresa of Avilla's reforms. Vanunu replied, "I haven't read him." Not many have, and even fewer understand what he was talking about...

There's Nothing Christian about Zionism Christian Zionism is a modern theological and political movement that embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism, thereby becoming detrimental to a just peace within Palestine and Israel. The Christian Zionist program provides a worldview where the Gospel is identified with the ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism-NOT what Jesus was about at all!

"Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy, rotten system"-Dorothy Day The problem is NOT Christianity! The problem is that too few who claim to be Christian, have actually done what Jesus taught and modeled with his NONVIOLENT life. Lately I have been accused of being "to hard on the church" but my issue with the institutional churches is that too many are more about socializing, NOT much about the social gospel and then there are those that even 'worship' the State.

In his 11 years in office he also wrested much power away from that states Legislature.

The Martyrdom of Mordechai Vanunu The best understanding of a martyr is one who chooses to suffer, to die rather than renounce their principals. A martyr is also one who has given themselves up as a witness. The essence of Christianity is to bear witness to what Jesus was always on about; forgiveness, love, reconciliation and the intrinsic equality of all people.

Wake Up US Government: Go for the GOLD and Walk with the Wind! The 23 days of Israel's attack on the people of Gaza was fueled by US-supplied weapons paid for with US tax dollars. We the people who pay taxes in the USA provide $30 billion annually to Israel which has consistently misused U.S. weapons in violation of America's Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Acts.

HR 4681Palestinian "Anti-Terrorism Act" -- Fighting Terrorism By Creating More Desperation HR 4681 is euphemistically called the "Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act"-but in reality is masterful Orwellian doublespeak, for its only possible fruit, would be to create more terrorists. HR 4681 imposes draconian economic and diplomatic sanctions against Palestinians just because they exercised their democratic rights and voted for the candidates of their choice.

The essence of peace is to connect two opposites. "In order to prove the lack of reason in Islam, the Pope asserts that the prophet Muhammad ordered his followers to spread their religion by the sword. According to the Pope, that is unreasonable, because faith is born of the soul, not of the body. How can the sword influence the soul?"

The Power of Nonviolent Persistent People and the Yin and Yang of Anarchy Anarchy is best understood as Rebellion against UNJUST laws. The Yang [male positive force] of anarchy resists authority and causes disorder and is socially and politically incorrect by the norms of the status quo for it seeks the higher ground of justice. The Yin or feminine passive force of anarchy births a new order out of the chaos and chaos is creativity in action.
