I can't imagine a better way to lament the 7th anniversary of the war in Iraq than by spending it with Iraq veterans who are horrified by the war and courageously speaking out against it

It's one thing to go to the "Holy Land" and see where Jesus worked and walked in the past.

We have spoken with many Palestinians in the West Bank and in East Jerusalem so far in our pilgrimage, both Christian and Muslim. Their voices are seldom heard in our corporate media, so it has made sense to meet, listen to, and understand them.

Imagine for a minute the fallout were a Muslim high school in America to choose for its mascot "the Jihadists."
