Christian Peacemakers and the Failure of the Left

Electrontic Iraq has an article by Mark LeVine that is mostly correct.

As calls for the release of the four CPT activists in Iraq (including Harmeet, my friend from ISM in January) continue to come from all quarters, it’s worth taking a moment to ask why there are not more people involved in groups like the CPT and ISM in Iraq and Palestine. His criticisms of how much of the US peace movement limits itself to “periodic protests in New York or Washington DC” can be equally well applied to the UK Stop the War Coalition.
