Subject: [STOP_CHOGM] Lies about Palestinian celebrations

Please pass far and wide. Not sure where this message originated, but it
came through the USAS (United Students Against Sweatshops) website...

Subject: [usas] Fwd: Palestinians Celebrating?

Please read the letter below from a Palestinian student. How is
everyone handling this? Progressive Students for Justice, Fordham's
usas affiliate, had an emergency meeting to talk and see what we could
do. About a 1,000 students gave blood today. We discussed forming an
emergency committee to help mobilize other campus groups and students to
do whatever we can to support the victims and families/friends of
victims, and prevent hostility to Arab students. We don't know
specifically what we can do yet.

I hope and pray that your family, friends, and co-workers are all safe.
This e-mail is from a friend of mine in Palestine. I think that her
message is important for us to hear- especially in reguards to the
withdrawal of Isreali soliders in Jenin. As you all know, this summer I
studied with students in the Middle East and Balkans. They are all VERY
supportive and concerned--Jewishs, Arabs -- everyone. My prayer are
with you all.



my dear friends ,

I express to you ,my american friends, my profound sorrow and my
closeness in prayer for all victims at this horrible and tragic moment.i
really feel sorry for all the world,i feel sorry for us,HUMAN beings.
we are not human any more,we are animals!!!! i feel outraged and angry
for this aggression against humanity!!!it is really horrible,the world
that we are living in!!!! it is a jungle where animals eat each other
for survival!!! under the bombing of the bethlehem Area,palestinains
were stuck in front of TV ,watching the horrible inhuman attack while
hearing the bombs falling around! how would they behave??? Palestinians
are confused and desperate ...Palestinains are not celebrating the death
of people....i have tears in my eyes now because of the horrible image
you are getting from news!!! it is wrong...i am begging you, my friends,
not to believe what you see......Palestinians were celebrating the
withdrawal of the Israeli army from the palestinian city,jenin!!! that
was it! we are being attacked every Best friends' house was
bombard at two minutes from where i stay at bethlehem....believe me,i
don't want to talk about my suffering as much as i want to talk about
the suffering of all human beings around the globe of whom we don't know
very well....!!!!!!! Palestinian groups denounced and condemned the
attack ...reminding you that our struggle is against Occupation and
slavery. America, as a super power, has duties toward weak nations
asking for its help. WAKE UP americans!!!!we need your help!!! the
oppressed,the hungry,the poor in this world are crying out for help!!!!
President Bush ended his speech last night:::'''None of us will ever
forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is
good and just in our world"""" i hope so! hey my friends, i am with you
...we are together in spirit and soul.....we share same values,we share
the same struggle ....

i love you and pray for you.
