    Listening now to your interview — forwarded link to several others.

    The first time I heard of the Islamic fundamentalist threat was from
    Netanyahu — around the time of the first Gulf War.

    He was sitting about two rows behind me at a talk in Washington.

    Congratulations to the excellent program today with James Petras.
    It would be ideal if you had someone provide a transcript of shows like this at your website and to places such as and
    It is also very good that you ask your guests what people can do to change things…
    In fact, it would be good to put together a program from different shows focusing on action…

    Gaza: Photographic Evidence of Extensive Israeli War Crimes

    When do we call the duck, a duck?

    How many more innocent lives will be lost before the world stops Israel's genocidal policies toward the indigenous civilians of Palestine?

    I have spoken out. Will you?

    Musicians, photographers, writers, film-makers, and fellow artisans, we have an obligation to tell this story through our art. It doesn't matter if it's not a box-office hit, best seller, or top-40 hit. We have an ethical obligation as human beings to stop this policy. Art is one way to bring attention to this horror the Palestinians have been suffering for over 60 years. Enough is enough and it's time to mobilize. Please do something. Write a story, a song, a film, a photo essay, a sculpture, a painting. Please do something for your fellow human beings that suffer because of U.S. tax dollars that pay for the very weapons Israel uses on its non-Jewish civilian population on a daily basis.

    Together, we CAN make a difference. I know there are some who worry that their careers may be affected, and it is true, they may be. However, the tide is shifting away from the monopolizers in Hollywood. Independent films are the wave of the future and Hollywood knows it. One viral film, song, or essay released over the Internet can reach so many more than ticketed movie-goers, purchased CD's or books ever could dream of.

    Let's do this thing.

    Some of us could easily come up with a musical score, others have camera expertise, story writing expertise, production assets, like production insurance. There's every reason to do this, and no reason not to.

    So, any takers? If not, I'll just go it alone. I'm pretty used to that anyway. It's your conscience; your soul.
