I hope your remember the post of email from Dunia and Ali, in the Women of Peace and Dunia and Ali categories. They were so angry. We didn't know why until today. We got an email from another Women of Peace member and she wrote:
"I am sorry for them because the American soldiers beat her brother in very bad way and arrest her father for few days then they released him but he was beaten."
OK. There are no verified facts here; just a report from a student to a beloved teacher. Yes, we assume it is true.
Yes, we can easily understand why there is so much hatred being born in Iraq.
Yes, let's bring the troops home now so we can get down to the real business of helping the innocent Iraqis build a new peaceful life. They don't need military action. They need practical support--power plants, water treatment plants, medicine, jobs...the real stuff of life.
