64] – Clarity Press, Inc. is selling PROMOTING THE COLLAPSE OF ZIONISM: A STRATEGY FOR PALESTINE & THE PALESTINIAN RIGHT OF RETURN UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW by Francis A. Boyle.  The ISBN is 0932863-93-0/978-0-932863-93-5; $14.95/123 pp./ 2011.  The just resolution of the Palestinian right of return is at the very heart of the Middle East peace process. Nonetheless, the Obama administration wants to impose a comprehensive peace settlement upon the Palestinians that will force them to give up their well-recognized right of return under United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194(III)) of 1948; accept a Bantustan of disjointed and surrounded chunks of territory on the West Bank in Gaza; and even expressly recognize Israel as “the Jewish State,” as newly demanded by Benjamin Netanyahu. All this will fail for the reasons so powerfully stated in this book. For the past three decades, Francis A. Boyle has provided the leadership of the Palestinian people with advice, counsel, and representation at all stages of the Middle East Peace Process.

69] – There is a project to assist young refugees from Haiti, now residing in the Dominican Republic.  The founder of the project needs funding to providing education to the youth as a way out of desperate poverty.  Try to imagine the poverty in Haiti, and then realize that these young refugees are considered low caste in the Dominican Republic.

"One is called to live nonviolently, even if the change one works for seems impossible. It may or may not be possible to turn the US around through nonviolent revolution. But one thing favors such an attempt: the total inability of violence to change anything for the better" - Daniel Berrigan
