"All land is holy. All people are chosen." --Alan Senauke

200 Eyes for an Eye: Iraq and 9/11

Vietnam Memorial: a thought experiment.

In 1989, I co-authored Seeing Double, A Middle Eastern Comedy of Error with Joan Holden and the San Francisco Mime Troupe. (Read the New York Times review.)


In 2016-2018, I worked with Sinai Peter, Hanna Eady, and Joan Holden on an update. Read about it. Unfortunately, we were not able to pull this off.

From 2002 to 2009, I was on the Board of Jewish Voice for Peace, a diverse organization inspired by Jewish tradition to work for a just resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on human rights and international law.

In July 2007, I was interviewed about JVP for the Arab American News, a Detroit weekly.

My op ed in the San Jose Mercury News during the Israeli attack on Lebanon (August 2006), and some of the responses it generated.

A fund-raising letter I wrote for JVP (Fall 2005).

Excerpts from the program book of JVP's Olive Branch Awards Dinner, which I edited (May 2005).

An article I wrote for JVP's book Reframing Anti-Semitism (2003) about charges that were leveled at the anti-war movement during the buildup for the war on Iraq. (I co-edited the book.) In 2017, JVP published a much more substantial book on this topic.
