My name is Diane V. McLoughlin. I am a writer and peace activist.  My main website is The McLoughlin Post  I also blog at The McLoughlin Post Blog

My oldest child is now nineteen-years old.  When I was pregnant with my first, my husband and I watched the First Gulf War unfold on our television screen. 

Seemingly endless war. The human race can and must do better.  The legacy we will leave future generations will be a bitter one if we do not.

I am particularly focused on the Israeli-Palestinian peace issue.

'Justice for the Palestinians is now at the heart of the battle for a better world.' - Gilad Atzmon

My thoughts on government black propaganda: The purpose in telling people that a government is up to no good  is to shine a light on it so people may recognize manipulation for evil when they see it; hopefully they will be stronger to resist it when subjected to it; and will be inspired by the condemnation of it by others to resist and condemn it themselves.

Interesting websites/pages:

Amend the Constitution to Save Our Democracy - a campaign to nullify the Supreme Court's recent decision to give corporations the same rights as persons in influencing elections.

Just learned a bit about the New Israel Fund.  Interesting org. and site:
'The New Israel Fund (NIF) is the leading organization committed to democratic change within Israel. Since 1979, NIF has fought for social justice and equality for all Israelis.  We believe that Israel can live up to its founders' vision of a state that ensures complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants, without regard to religion, race or gender.'
