UAlbany’s Edward Schwarzschild writes with his latest project:
Here’s a quick note to say hello and happy new year and I hope your 2007 is off to a terrific start. Also, thought you might enjoy taking a look at a new project that just went up as the lead feature on a cool webzine today. The project involves getting a bunch of writers to reply to President Ahmadinejad’s open letter to the American People. You can see my brief introduction to the project plus, during the course of this week, the various letters written by all sorts of people at: www.jewcy.com
I won’t discuss your hate-mongering campaign against the historical fact of the Holocaust. Instead, I’ll point out, as I’m sure you’re aware, that Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, and the Bush administration’s “war on terror” are the subject of intense national debate, a debate which led in our most recent election to the large-scale defeat of those who support President Bush’s agenda. Can you say the same about the level of debate within your own country?
