Statement of Support For the "Axis of Resistance" Formed Between the Korean and Arab Com
On behalf of the Anti-Imperialist Solidarity Committee (USA) and the Songun Politics Study Group (USA), I would like to congratulate the efforts of the National Democratic Front of South Korea, particularly its mission in Pyongyang, as well as the Arab Progressive Coalition of North America, on uniting the just Anti-US struggles of the Arab and Korean people, respectively, around issues of Iraqi sovereignty and opposing the use of south Koreans as canon fodder. The Arab Progressive Coalition of North America, have often spoke publicly at progressive venues on the Principle Army-based Stance of the DPRK, led by Marshal Kim Jong Il, Helmsman of the Songun Era. We are pleased to read that the Korean Central News Agency, known for its splendid analysis and partisan stance has detailed for the world the efforts between the APCNA and the NDFSK.

History of the Palestinians in Israel
Despite all odds and ethnic cleansing of 70% of natives in 1947-1949, remained in what became Israel. They were kept under martial law until 1966 and are now (separate and unequal) citizens of Israel. "Adalah's main goals are to achieve equal individual and collective rights for the Arab minority in Israel in different fields including land rights; civil and political rights; cultural, social, and economic and rights; religious rights; women's rights; and prisoners' rights."

"In Israel, Avraham Burg, former speaker of the Knesset, recently warned that if Israel wishes to preserve what little democracy it still has, it must either withdraw to its pre-1967 boundaries or grant full citizenship to the approximately 3.5 million Palestinians in the occupied territories, a step that would spell the virtual end of the Jewish state...."

What's Left: A more sensible alternative to replacing Bush with a Democrat
Bush can be stopped, a "Letter to the Left" [ http://www.petitiononline.com/LttrLeft/petition.html] tells me. It's signed by Leslie Cagan, Noam Chomsky, and Pete Seeger, among others... [B]ut so what? Beating Bush isn't the same as beating the drive, through military force or otherwise, to dominate the world. That exists independent of Bush, or whoever else occupies the White House. And if you think anyone, even slightly to the left of Bush, has to be better, take a long, hard look at Tony Blair. Or consider Clinton's record, free from the distorting mythology that Clinton respected international law, engaged every ally, and never by-passed the UN. It's not Bush that has to be beaten; it's a drive to dominate the world that has to beaten, which means beating something much more fundamental than Bush.

Report What I Say . . . Not What I Do!
That the mainstream media has filtered and distorted news about the war cannot be denied. But its promotion of the War prior to preemptive strike, support of the War On Terrorism and the Patriot Act (right down to specially designed logos!), embedded pro-administration reporters, and early war coverage were all of benefit to the Bush administration. Shrub's cadre wasn't complaining when the media was busy wrapping Private Jessica in a flag or photographing the downfall of a Saddam statue or covering the President on the deck of a carrier in a flight suit as he strutted about and declared the end of military action! Unfortunately the good puppy media has made the mistake of peeing on Mr. Bush's trousers.

The oregon Spotlight is a one man organization ran by Steven M. Stroud. This paper uses published information to demonstrate holes in the directors past, his uses of lies and deception, his alliance with racists skinheads (et. al.), and his attack on anti-hate groups and activists. While posing as a "group" that espouses the ideas of Dr. Martin Luther King, the OS has an agenda that is twisted out of proportion and is used to gain photo-ops for Stroud. All works are cited, however, Stroud has removed all linked material that were on his dicussion board a few days after this work was published last year.
