Dear List members, dear Moderator, indeed, it's an obscene spectacle at display on this list, lately and, then and now, at earlier occasions. Remember Halapca? How did we call it only some years ago: structural violence? Violence inherent in the incessant mumbling of 'peace', for instance, as some members of the list insist on doing so after having committed the most uncourtious and obscene of all acts as is the trivialization of the grossest violations of human rights, of smearing and slandering those simply expressing this horror, formulating professionally so as not to be caught red handed in the defense of the indefensible, invoking, cynically, 'peace' over and over again to hide the blows to fairness and compassion. It is such behavior on this list that discredits the anti-sanctions movement, the non-violence movement and all those who, with pure heart and good will, are trying to save the Iraqi peoples from yet more sufferings. The violence, the obscenity and hypocrisy lies with them, and, finally, with the warning in question by the moderator. - Please, do not tell me that you do not know about the owner of Uruklink, and who is privileged to make use of its internet portal. Bye, and cheers Alexander Sternberg CASI Lists Manager wrote: > > Dear list, > > Given the number of list unsubsciptions occurring at the moment, I think I > can safely say that there is a general feeling that this discussion has > gone far enough.
