Quotation of the Week
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."  --- Mahathma Ghandi

Action Alert
Stop Nestle from privatizing our water. In the McCloud-Nestle deal there is 
no limit to how much water Nestle can take for their own use even it it has an 
adverse impact for the community and lowers the water table. This is part of a 
global trend for corporations to privatize our water supplies for profit.

Imagine a nation where religious fervor runs hot, and faith rhetoric runs 
hotter. Where belief has replaced reason, and where Liberty and Justice play a 
broken second fiddle to an all powerful, omniscient and omnipresent 
military-industrial God complex. That's the nation Reverend C.B. De Love wants. And that's 
also the nation where shy civics teacher Angela Franklin finds herself. But 
in her struggle to stop the coming Theocracy will Angela go too far? In her 
zeal to destroy the opiate of the masses, will she make a religion out of her 
anti-religion, and join the ranks of the Gangsters for God? Or will she see the 
folly of blind faith in anything - even the Constitution - and return to 
Reason? 



Aug. 18-20              Mount Shasta Prayer Walk & Weekend Retreat - Weed, Ca

peace and prayer.

Sat. Aug. 19  7-9 pm              Hizbollah, Syria & Iran w. Fred Lawson - 
Alameda

The Alameda Public Affairs Forum is pleased to present Professor and Author 
Fred H. Lawson, speaking on "Hizbollah, Syria and Iran: Partnership and Rivalry 
in a Dangerous Neighborhood"

Home of Truth Center, 1300 Grand Street, Alameda
Julie Rufo  510-769-6395 jrufo@sbcglobal.net  www.alamedaforum.org

Professor Lawson will be discussing how Hizbullah, Syria and Iran are most 
often presumed to have shared objectives with regard to regional and global 
issues. But in fact the three parties have divergent interests and purposes, even 
on key strategic questions.  It is vital to spell out the areas in which these 
three actors' positions converge and those where they do not, if one is to 
understand recent developments and make accurate recommendations concerning 
policy.

Fred Lawson is Rice Professor of Government at Mills College. He is author of 
Constructing International Relations in the Arab World (Stanford University 
Press, 2006), Why Syria Goes to War (Cornell University Press, 1996) and other 
studies of political economy and foreign policy in the Arab world. In 1992-93, 
he was Fulbright lecturer in international relations at the University of 
Aleppo;  in 2001, he was Fulbright lecturer in political science at Aden 
University.

Following the presentation there will be time for discussion and questions 
from the audience. The program is free but donations at the door are accepted.

PSVP Samina   650-387-1994  samina_faheem@yahoo.com  

This year’s American Muslim Voice convention – on the fifth anniversary of  
Sept. 11 – brings together an amazing group of peacemakers: those who  have 
experienced grief first-hand and channeled that grief into action.  The theme, 
“Ordinary People, Extraordinary Heroes,” is only fitting.  

Such heroes include:

John & Bev Titus - parents of Alicia Titus, a 28 year old flight attendant 
killed on United Air Lines Flight 175 on September 11th, 2001. They are members 
of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, an advocacy organization 
founded by family members of victims of the September 11th attacks on the United 
States, 

Azim N. Khamisa - father of Tariq Khamisa.  He is Chairman, CEO and Founder 
of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation. TKF (www.tkf.org) was founded in memory of 
20-year old  Tariq, who was murdered in January of 1995. Mr. Khamisa reached out 
in forgiveness to the grandfather and guardian of his son’s killer, Mr. Ples 
Felix who now serves as Vice Chairman of TKF.  He has committed his life to 
defeating the continuing cycle of violence amongst the youth.

AfterDowningStreet.org is joining with organizations and individuals across 
the country to create an event on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. called 
Camp Democracy. This will be a camp for peace, democracy, and the restoration 
of the rule of law. Camp Casey will move from Crawford, Texas, to Washington 
to create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but also on righting 
injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush Administration 
and Congress. 

Cindy Sheehan's Camp Casey to Move from Texas

Tents will provide activist activities, trainings, workshops, and 
entertainment on a variety of themes united by the demand that we shift our resources 
from war to useful projects. Camp Democracy will provide food, housing, 
education, and inspiration for all who can come for the whole event or part of it. To 
do so, we need your help. 

Please sign up to volunteer and please contribute financially at this website
