Living By the Sword

Amidst all the outrage about veteran journalist Helen Thomas
intemperately saying what so many on the left, including many Jews, feel
but more politely say - "The Jews should get the hell out of Palestine"
- some are defending her for what she likely meant, adding meaningful
context to the trap of sound bites. Three activist Jews speak out here, and
Al Jazeera offers thoughtful analysis here on the sea change in public opinion that Thomas
represents.

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
