For Charlie

Issue: 2006, Volume 39, Issue 4
Subject: Children
Author: Lubin, Barbara
Issue Description: Barbara Lubin, a Jewish-American activist, begins her Link with these words: “Israel’s recent invasion of Lebanon brought back painful memories to me of its 1982 invasion for more reasons than one. While Israel’s actions in 2006 were similar to 1982— widespread bombing of civilians and civilian infrastructure, the destruction of entire neighborhoods, and the indiscriminate killing of women and children— my reactions then and now were very different. These opposite reactions tell the story of who I was and who I have become.”

The Day FDR Met Saudi Arabia's Ibn Saud

Issue: 2005, Volume 38, Issue 2
Subject: History|Politics|Saudi Arabia
Author: Lippman, Thomas W.
Issue Description: Former Washington Post Middle East Bureau Chief Thomas Lippman provides a fascinating, anecdote-laced account of the 1945 meeting of President Franklin D. Roosevelt with Saudi Arabia's legendary King Ibn Saud.  Roosevelt's probing of Ibn Saud's views on Jewish settlement in Palestine elicited the King's response that Germany, being the perpetrator of the Holocaust, should be made to pay the price with appropriated land within Germany.  Col. William Eddy, translator between the two principals, is relied upon for the substance of what was discussed, and the Eddy book, "F.D.R. Meets Ibn Saud," can be accessed on the AMEU website.

The Coverage and Non-Coverage of Israel-Palestine

Issue: 2005, Volume 38, Issue 3
Subject: Media
Author: Weir, Alison
Issue Description: The New York Times is called “the newspaper of record,”in part because hundreds of other newspapers across the country and around the world subscribe to its New York Times News Service. So, if The Times skewers the news, it’s skewered worldwide. Which is exactly what is happening with its coverage of Palestine/Israel, according to Alison Weir, executive director of If Americans Knew.

Subject: History|Iraq|War/Conflict
Author: Cooley, John
Issue Description: John Cooley, former correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor and ABC News, writes that President Bush, Prime Minister Blair and their real or nominal allies had the active or tacit cooperation of many in the media in the run-up to the “war of choice”with Iraq. Cooley adds: “For this writer, after covering Arab and Muslim regions for nearly half a century, there is another issue. Our mainstream media, almost without exception, tip-toe around the role played by Israel in influencing the Bushites toward war in March 2003.”

A Polish Boy in Palestine

Issue: 2005, Volume 38, Issue 5
Subject: Human Rights|Land and Homes
Author: Neunuebel, David
Issue Description: Frequently the path to discovering the plight of the Palestinians begins with acts of conscience with respect to racism, discrimination and civil rights in the U.S. And so it was with David Neunuebel, who recalls the perjoratives and ill treatment meted out to his mother solely for being Polish and poor, and the segregation visited upon blacks simply because of skin color. When Neuneubel returned from visiting Palestine for the first time, he felt compelled to tell other Americans about what he had learned. In addition to producing two film documentaries on life for the Palestinians under occupation, he also created an organization, Americans for a Just Peace in the Middle East.
