Israeli political scientist Galia Golon, a leader in the 400,000-strong Israeli peace movement, spoke of the common bonds between Israeli and Arab women and of the common historic bond between Jews and Palestinians as homeless people. A Muslim woman had the courage to characterize the Israeli government as more civilized than some of the repressive regimes of her own faith. At the same time, Israeli women had the courage to assert that Israel should give the Palestinians land for an independent state.

Our library has just received the last issue of the Humanist, and I am throwing it and all the back issues we have away. I don't know who was responsible for ordering the subscription, but please do not send it anymore. I have just recently been informed what humanism is, and I do not agree with its perspectives.
