This idea (below) occurred to me early this year, while driving back
from NYC after a press conference I attended, in support of my
In my own neighborhood, we have seen many attacks, many lives disrupted
if not destroyed.
They include --
a young Jordanian pizza parlor owner from Albany, NY deported -- after
being tortured at the Metropolitan Detention Center in NYC -- for the
alleged crime of being heard (across a busy city intersection)
denouncing the USA;
a young pizza delivery person from Hudson, ultimately deported to
Pakistan for the crime of taking a photograph from a hilltop that had a
glorious view on a clear autumn day;
a Rome, NY oncologist whose crime was trying to help sick Iraqis -- and
who had been counted as a terrorist by Ashcroft -- but who was
convicted instead of Medicare fraud;
a preposterous FBI entrapment operation in Albany, in which a local
Kurdish Imam remains in impossibly strict confinement;
the case of Imam Umar -- see our literature at

We at Marxmail might consider forming an International Muslim Defense
-- an internet project of marxists -- that concentrates data
documenting the victimization of Muslims by imperialism, -- "the global
war on terror" -- broadly cast, together with info about how to contact
those exposing the crimes or supporting the victims.... from
Mazar-i-sharif to Maher Arar to Bint Jbeil, etc. Many of us are
intense readers. Some of us are prolific posters. We should direct
fundraising directly to the cause at hand -- and we should also have a
way to ask for funds for a website that has a paper newsletter that can
be downloaded as well as mailed or sold or handed out, multilingual.
