Palestinian Freedom fighter Marwan Barghouti is Arafat's probable popular successor. Fatah Secretary-General (since 1994) and a key figure in both the first Intifada and the present Intifadat al-Aqsa, Marwan sits in an Israeli jail, sentenced last June 6 and serving five life sentences plus 40 years. Israeli and international progressives should raise two demands now loud and clear: for Barghouti's immediate release from prison and for the protection of his safety wherever he is.

This defecation was done in plain public view, and recorded in the public record. Since voting is the Right which secures all other Rights and confers legitimacy on the ultimate 'Commons' Our Representative Government-this bowel movement was ejected on the Public Square, so a charge of public indecency needs to be included on the arrest warrant.
Or will the Flies-in the form of diversionary news stories eat the PooP before we can break the Scoop? Even Mother Nature renews and cleans up after herself, can't sentient beings with free will be permitted to ensure trust in this fundamental right to bear witness to the will of The People?

The onslaught in Fallujah: Shooting at a fly that has landed on a horse’s head

12-11-2004 20:51

The war in Iraq was also supposed to be over, whereas it clearly is not. The same applies to Fallujah, where an official victory may well turn out to be a Pyrrhic one.
