About This Issue
At 6:45, on a brisk Sunday morning, Oct..16, 2016, 29 people  gathered outside the First Congregational Church in Old Lyme, CT.

They packed their bags into three white vans, then listened as a tall man, wearing a Palestinian scarf, chanted a blessing in his Native American language, first facing East, then South, then West, then North..
 
Then the vans  set off on a 3,000-plus-miles journey.   Their purpose: to underscore  the connection between the  civil and  human  rights struggle of  African Americans, Native Americans, and Palestinians living under Israeli  occupation.
 
Reporting the scheduled events from Washington, DC to Memphis, TN is Steven Jungkeit, Senior Minister of Old Lyme’s Congregational Church  and a faculty member at the Harvard Divinity School.



On page 13 (PDF Version), we acknowledge the generous gift given to A.M.E.U. by Barbara, John and Bennett Melin in memory of their brother W. Gary Melin, who died this past June.

On page 14 (PDF Version) is our Book Selection: “The State of Terror” by Thomas Su├írez. Also on page 14, we extend our offer of Jerusalem olive oil,  produced by the Canaan Fair Trade project, which was featured in our last Sept.-Oct. Link.
 
On page 15 (PDF Version) is our latest Video Selection: “The Occupation of the American Mind.”  Occasionally, I am asked why Europeans  are more aware of Israel’s illegal confiscation of Palestinian lands?  This video tells why.
 
We thank Stan Heller, and TSVN, TheStruggle.org for photos used in this issue.

--John F. Mahoney, Executive Director
