Tikkun Magazine has a great interview with Adam Shapiro, the American Jew who has been struggling against the occupation in Palestine. He has “a simple message for American Jews: You can be a Jew, support Israel, but oppose occupation and oppression. If people stop and think about it, if American Jews were really to consider what and where their money was going to—for oppression and occupation—I think they wouldn’t support it.”

Closer to home: Referenced in the article is the participation in the International Solidarity Movement of twelve michiganders from the Michigan Peace Team, including two nuns from southeast Michigan. God bless them for their efforts.
