Author, Rich Forer, Talks About his Book, Breakthrough: Transforming Fear into Compassion

Though not a religious Jew, Rich Forer had been a loyal defender of Israeli policy all his life and zealously supported Israel's 2006 invasion of Lebanon. In response to what he perceived as growing global anti-Semitism, he became a member of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Angry that two of his most trusted friends resisted his views and surprised that a long-time Jewish friend would suggest that his opinions were not as factually based as he assumed, Forer began an intensive study of the history of the Israel-Palestine conflict, determined to discover the facts for himself.

With an uncompromising commitment to the truth, he went far beyond his original intention, even challenging his very identity. Reaching into the depths of himself, in a remarkable moment he underwent a spontaneous spiritual transformation in which he awoke to his true identity, beyond the limits of the ego and its enforced loyalties.

Feeling how his attachment to Israel had blinded him to the human dimension of the conflict and had led him to reject the other in a heartless way, Forer realized that the true root of conflict is one's presumed identity and the beliefs and images that emanate from and reinforce that identity, and that these presumptions are false and unnecessary. He discovered that in Truth we are all Muslim and Jewish, Palestinian and Israeli. Forer had recognized the heart of Judaism, which embraces the Universal and identifies with all of humanity.

Prof. Lawrence Davidson Talks About his Recent Visit to Iran

Lawrence Davidson lectured as a professor at West Chester University in West Chester, Pennsylvania. His academic work is centered on the history of American foreign relations with the Middle East.

Throughout his career, Davidson has informed public discourse with his critique of American foreign policy in the Middle East and has embarked on this endeavor in a way that promotes citizen awareness. Davidson analysis has centered on the reality of American conduct in the Middle East and has performed this analysis in conjunction with an awareness of the propaganda that has permeated this debate for the past 65 years. Given this analysis and focus, Davidson has become an outspoken and unflinching critic of the U.S. alliance with Israel and the Zionists' treatment of the Palestinian people.

Davidson is the author of several books. His latest, published in 2009, is Foreign Policy, Inc.: Privatizing America's National Interest. This work locates the source of U.S. foreign policy formulation in the activity of powerful lobbies rather than in the White House or State Department.

Board member, Tiffany Johnson, Talks about A New Way of Life Reentry Project and Prison

A New Way of Life Reentry Project is a non-profit organization in South Central Los Angeles with a core mission to help women and girls break the cycle of entrapment in the criminal justice system and lead healthy and satisfying lives. As a community advocate, A New Way of Life: provides housing and reentry support for women and children, advocates for the human and civil rights of people in prison and people with past convictions and builds leadership of formerly incarcerated women. In 2010, the founder of ANWOL, Susan Burton, was CNN's 2010 hero.

Ms. Johnson first heard about A New Way of Life Reentry Project (ANWOL) on the grounds of Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF), while serving a 15 to life sentence. After 10 years of incarceration, she contacted ANWOL to ask if a bed would be available if she became eligible for parole. The founder, Susan Burton, wrote back, extending a bed in her home. Although there was a place in the community for Tiffany, it took an additional 6 years before she was released. True to her word, Ms. Burton had a bed available and on April 28, 2010, Tiffany walked through the doors of ANWOL to start her new life. It was a cultural shock being back in society, but through ANWOL’s guidance and connections, she went on to begin a career in electrical assembly and live on her own. In 2011, Tiffany was asked to become a board member of A New Way of Life. In December of 2013, she left her career in electrical assembly to join ANWOL’s staff as a full-time community organizer for All of Us or None-Southern California (AOUON-SC).
