Bill Moyers: We Have a Nobel Peace President Who Won't Ban Land Mines - The United States has not actively used land mines since the first Gulf War in 1991, but we still possess some 10-15 million of them, making us the third largest stockpiler in the world, behind China and Russia.

Positive Responses - The Art of Stating the Obvious
Jews Against Zionism By Stephen Lendman - Chicago - They're numerous, outspoken, and range from secular to orthodox to one group calling itself "True Torah Jews Against Zionism." They believe that "traditional" Jews don't support Zionism, an ideology they call "contrary to Jewish law and beliefs and the teachings of the Holy Torah." They say Zionism:
-- advocates "a political and military end to the Jewish exile;"
-- fosters "pseudo-Judaism" based on secular nationalism;
-- coercively seeks "armed materialism" in place of "a Divine and Torah centered understanding;"
-- endangers all Jews worldwide;
-- wants to disassociate Jews and traditional Judaism from ideological Zionism; and
-- calls Israel a "Zionist State," not a Jewish one.
