What do those two gentlemen have in common? They are just two of the distinguished people who have enthusiastically endorsed Congressman Paul Findley’s fascinating new book, “Speaking Out: A Congressman’s Lifelong Fight Against Bigotry, Famine and War.
Dear Friend:

This is exciting news. CNI’s founder, former Congressman Paul Findley, has just penned his auto-biography and I cannot recommend it enough. Paul Findley made an indelible mark on Capital Hill during his 22 years as a United States Congressman. And in the years since, he has tirelessly fought for peace, justice, and fair play in the Middle East—even now at ninety years old!

This brand new book has been described as “first class” by the Christian Science Monitor; writer/commentator Noam Chromsky calls it “fascinating reading” by “an independent thinker and courageous advocate;” while former Senator Adlai Stevenson describes it as “a valuable reminder of a politics when reason reigned … never more timely.”

Congressman Findley served through through six administrations in Washington, and he has much to reveal about the shaping of American foreign policy—from Vietnam to Middle East, and issues ranging from hunger to civil rights.
Speaking Out: A Congressman’s Lifelong Fight Against Bigotry, Famine and War” carries a forward by veteran journalist Helen Thomas who writes, “It’s not too late to learn from Representative Findley, a man of good conscience, who is daring to tell the truth.”

Speaking Out: A Congressman’s Lifelong Fight Against Bigotry, Famine and War” retails for $26.95, but is available at discount from Amazon.com for just $17.79 hardcover or $9.99 via Amazon Kindle.

Paul Findley’s autobiography is educational and inspirational—both necessary to the work we are all engaged in.

P.S. What about Bill Moyers and Ralph Nader? Well, journalist Moyers says:  “There is a place in America called Findley Country. Inspired by their founding father, the people who live there cherish principled politics, political courage, and speaking truth to power.” Political advocate Ralph Nader calls Paul Findley: “One of the most creative, indomitable advocates for international law, the end of wars, arms races, and famines, and an opponent of bigotry against Palestinians….Rare anywhere is that combination of moral determinism, pioneering, practical proposals, and strong character to sweat the Big Stuff.”

    I have to credit Paul Findley for the inspiration he has given me over the years to do what I do today in my ongoing activism for a righful end of violence against the Palestinians and Lebanese. It was Paul Findley’s original book, “They Dare to Speak Out” that initially lit the fire. I cannot thank this wonderful man for all that he has done. What a better world this would be if only there were more like him.

    Although I may get discouraged certain times, especially when I see how apathetic our government and the media react to Israel’s constant violations of human rights, I think of all the work that has been accomplished by people like Paul and just these thoughts keep me going. Thanks Paul, for all the tremendous work and devotion you have contributed in this cause. It sure has given me the inspiration. It seems that I am submitting letters to the editor on a daily basis. They sometimes get published but even if they don’t they do give me some relief. This is just one letter I wrote today, in response to Israel’s provocation.

    In U.S. news coverage, Israel can do little wrong

    The Israeli IDF raided a Palestinian village in the West Bank today killing two innocent men, a 22 year old law student at a local university who was shot in the head, and a 23 year old member of the Palestinian intelligence shot in the stomach and died on the way to the hospital.

    This kind of violence is usually omitted in the American mainstream news media. When the Palestinians take revenge only then will it be reported, but instead of being reported as retaliation, it will be reported as a terror attack which will then justify Israel’s disproportionate retaliation as a legitimate right for Israel to defend itself. This is the way it’s been going on for the past 45 years and American tax dollars, more than $3 billion a year, have been used to fund this double standard.

    Israel’s most crucial allies include the mass media of the United States. Together with top officials in Washington, news outlets keep reinforcing the assumption that the Israeli government can do little wrong.
