Subject: Zionism? 6.26 10am

Has the Zionist Solution for the Jewish Problem Worked?

Whose problem is it anyway?  Does history matter?  Should we revisit it,
or should we ignore it and just "move on?"  Why is "peace" not the goal?
What are the two diametrically opposed views of Israel today, and why do
they exist simultaneously?  What does the ordinary person in the Middle
East think, and does it even matter?  What are the options today, and
where do we go from here?  Arafat ElBakri, a Palestinian American, is
President of Islamic Relief & Social Services, a trustee of Abu Bakr
Mosque in Mankato and former President of Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center.
Samir Saikali was born in Cairo and holds Egyptian and American degrees in
literature and education.  He is a grant writer for the St. Paul
Neighborhood Development Center.  He and his wife spent time with Kosovo
refugees in 1998 and 1999. Both men are frequent speakers to schools and
community groups.

The Ecology Democracy Party gubernatorial candidate KEN PENTEL is
campaigning by bicycle and canoe through your area and is arriving for
interviews from June 28 through June 30.  Please contact David Luce,
Advance Team Coordinator, at 651-695-1966 or advanceteam [at] to
schedule an interview.

The Ecology Democracy Party grew from the already flourishing Ecology
Democracy Network, established by Ken Pentel over the last two years while
bicycling over 6,000 miles grass roots organizing around the State.  The
Ecology Democracy Party was established to transition the thinking and
action in our culture from a human-centered to an ecological-centered
approach in relation to how we manage our relationship with our home,
planet Earth.  The Ecology Democracy Party will restore a harmonious and
sustainable relationship with our natural environment through a structural
change of the fundamentals of Minnesota Government.  This change is to be
brought about through the following three Ecology Democracy Party

Ecology Democracy Party mandates:
*       Establishing an ecology-based economy for Minnesota
*       Implementing proportional representation for the State House
*       Removing Big Money and Corporate Interference in Minnesota

Ken Pentel quote:  "The people who mobilize and vote for Erin and me
should know that when elected, our three mandates will form the basis of
how we will govern.  These are: the establishment of an ecology-based
economy for Minnesota, implementation of proportional representation for
the State House, and the removal of private and corporate money in the
people's government of Minnesota.  In the course of this campaign and
beyond, it will be the responsibility of the people in the field who
mobilized, and all those who will vote for us, to give us the backbone to
see this through. We know Minnesotans are up to the challenge and we look
forward to earning and maintaining their trust and confidence."

Prepared to Govern,
Ken Pentel, 2010 Ecology Democracy Party Gubernatorial Candidate

Ken Pentel is a Minnesota native and former Green Party gubernatorial
candidate with 11 years of work experience with Greenpeace and 12 years of
work experience developing the Minnesota Green Party.  Ken is the founding
director of the Ecology Democracy Network.

You are also invited to join Ecology Democracy Party members, supporters
and friends to see our Governor candidate, Ken Pentel off on his
bicycle/canoe tour of Central Minnesota.
