NYTimes Reports US Plans For Military Escalation In Pakistan
By Barry Grey

Whether Washington is about to approve expanded ground raids or is, for the present, using the threat of such a policy shift to blackmail the Pakistani regime into extending its offensive against internal opponents of the colonial war in Afghanistan, the basic thrust of US policy is to escalate the war.

Mr. Lieberman
By Alan Hart

The job Mr. Lieberman wants most of all is Netanyahu's. The way things are in Israel and look like going, it's not impossible that he will get it. If he does become prime minister, I imagine that would signal a move from rhetoric to action as in the chants of his supporters – "Death to the Arabs!"

Some Bold Proposals For Middle East Peace
By Rabbi Michael Lerner

Instead of playing to each side's elites, those who seek peace must now launch a broad educational campaign to reach ordinary citizens (if necessary, over the heads of those elites) with a message that is convincing -- a message that says, here are the terms of a fair peace agreement and here is why we believe that if each side makes the necessary compromises, it will work to meet your best interests
