======== STOPPING THE NEXT MIDDLE EAST WAR ===================================

         SPRING --------------------------------------------------------------

*Wednesday, November 20, 2013, 7:00 pm
Cambridge Friends Meeting • 5 Longfellow Park, off Brattle St • Harvard  
Sq T • Cambridge*

The peace movement helped stop the US attack on Syria but the underlying  
causes of conflict in the Middle East remain.     Already, warmakers want  
more pressure on Iran instead of responding to the Iranian initiative to  
relax tensions.  Israel's repression of the Palestinians continues, Saudi  
Arabia wants regional power, the military rules in Egypt and US sanctions  
hurt the people.   Publlic opinion is skeptical about another war -- can the  
peace movement build on stopping the Syria attack to deepen and consolidate  
antiwar sentiment?  Is Arab Spring abated or repressed, or will this  
powerful movement for democracy help create peace?   The dynamics of the  
Middle East are complex, inter-related and need to be understood as a whole.  
Continuing education and understanding tricky Middle East politics are keys  
to effective action.
*Mark Solomon*, former national co-chair of the Committees of Correspondence  
for Democracy and Socialism, will review the current situation and update on  
Arab Spring.

*Jeff Klein* of Dorchester People for Peace and Mass. Peace Action will  
report on his recent trip to Palestine and discussions of the Syrian  
situation and the connection to Iran.

*Elaine Hagopian*, professor emeritus of sociology at Simmons College, will  
comment on how Saudi Arabia, Israel and the US all hope to use the conflict  
in Syria to check and roll back the influence of Iran.

*Vijay Prasad*, professor of international affairs and South Asian studies at  
Trinity College, is invited to provide a taped presentation on US policy in  
the Middle East.
