David, the counterpunch link is to a different Larudee-initiated statement;
it's from last year and is aimed at Palestinian signers.
The new one, aimed at gringos, was linked in Ken's message yesterday. Will
But thanks for the Muftah material.
p.s. re last year's Palestinian statement: my guess at the time, based on
the suspiciously large number of signers, was that Larudee had asked his
old left friends (DFLP, PFLP, etc.) to pass along their members' names as
signees. Would be good to know for sure. (Including so as not to deny
agency to the signers.)
