The Fulbright Seven

I have a dream, that The Fulbright Seven will come to symbolise all that is wrong with American/Israeli policy in the Middle East ….and that those with principles (okay, we may need to resurrect them from their graves) will one day soon rise up and expose the double standard, the hypocrisy and outright contempt of international law and human rights that has hijacked the world and his aunt.

Fulbright must be turning in his grave to see what he fought so hard to achieve, being manipulated and politicized to the point where it goes against every ethical stance that he ever took. So where is the principled dissent against the Israeli government’s contempt of all things American this time around?  Do I see a little light on the horizon of our times?

Yeah right, i was only dreaming along with the Fulbright Seven who have yet to get their golden ticket to freedom! J

I see from the paper this morning that only 4 of the 7 have been given permission from the Israelis to attend the US consulate in Jerusalem for their visa interviews. Also that Tony Blair has taken up the case of ONE Gazan who had a university place in the UK. T
