Bring Sami Al-Arian Home

Professor Sami Al-Arian: political prisoner in a US prison since 2003. Despite being acquitted, Al-Arian remains in prison in Bush’s America, a ‘test case’ for the Patriot Act and a ghastly miscarriage of justice (H/T Detain This)

    Hi Ann,

    You don’t know me! But I have heard/read so many great things about you over at neufneuf and Homeyra’s blogs.

    I was at the recent Palestine Film Festival in Toronto and I saw “USA vs. Al Arian” … I cried throughout the entire movie, even though I know it’s useless! What are my tears going to do for this family?

    Thanks for posting this, … And please let us know of anything new that comes up …

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
