> Dear Listmanager, With all respect to CASI, who I think has provided a wonderful service and has the best website, I am wondering what relevance this conversation below about the relative merits of Germany and the US, has for sanctions against Iraq. A recent discussion about Israel, the US in the Middle East was monitored as being irrelevent to the sanctions. Recent events (eg the vote at the UN Security Council on the "vision" of Palestine) demonstrate how relevent the discussion of the Israel/Palestine question is to sanctions, given that the US wants to appear to solve this question first before it bombs Iraq to hell, in order to get "suppport " in the ME, Philippa Winkler ===== Original Message From Bert Gedin <firstname.lastname@example.org> ===== >Hi Brigitte, >I hope you don't mind me passing your letter on to the list, as it's of >interest also to others. - The U.S.A., with the widespread >ultra-nationalism, is, of course, a nation largely consisting of immigrants, >and their descendents, from many parts of the world (we know the tragedy >which befell the indigenous peoples!), certainly including Germans.
