About This Issue
The Link has used various venues to tell the story of the Palestinian catastrophe. In “Captive Audiences” by Thomas Suarez it was a musical recital; in “The Grief Counselor of Gaza” by Dr. Eyad Sarraj it was psychiatric care; in “Mirror, Mirror” by Maysoon Zayid it was standup comedy.

In our current issue it is a Washington, D.C. courtroom.

In March of last year, a group of Palestinians sued a group of billionaires. Who are these plaintiffs and these defendants?  What are the charges? And what has become of the lawsuit during the past year?

Our feature author, Fred Jerome, addresses those questions.  Fred is a veteran journalist whose articles and op-ed pieces have appeared in Newsweek and The New York Times.  He also authored our July-August, 2015 Link “Kill Bernadotte.”  Fred has taught journalism at Columbia University’s School of Journalism and New York University.  His most recent book is “Einstein on Israel and Zionism,” may be purchased on our website at

In Memoriam

Andrew Killgore spent most of his 97 years involved with the Middle East. He represented our country in Beirut, Jerusalem,  Amman, Baghdad, and Tehran.  And from 1977-1980, he served as U.S. ambassador to Qatar.
Following  his retirement from the government, Andy co-founded the American Educational Trust, which publishes The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, whose  purpose —- then and now —- is to provide balanced and accurate information concerning U.S. relations with the Middle East.
While saddened by Ambassador Killgore’s death, we celebrate his extraordinary life.
George E. Mendenhall was an American Biblical scholar who taught at the University of Michigan’s Department of Near Eastern Studies.  He held a Ph.D. in Semitic languages from John Hopkins University and had a distinguished career in Ancient Near Eastern and Biblical studies.
We are also honored to note that, for the past 20 years, Dr. Mendenhall has served as a member of A.M.E.U.’s National Council.

--John F. Mahoney, Executive Director
