04/09/2003 Entry: "Keep Mike Hawash in the news"

"Two old friends of mine -- a Jewish couple in their 80s, both retired university professors who fled Nazi Germany in the late 1930s and eventually became U.S. citizens -- made a stunning remark to me a few months ago: 'You know, all our lives we have blamed our parents and our parents' generation for allowing Hitler to gain control. Now we're beginning to see how powerless they must have felt to stop what was happening all around them.'

"My friends' melancholy comment came back to me and a palpable chill ran down my spine when I read about the Gestapo-style arrest of U.S. citizen Maher "Mike" Hawash. Two weeks ago, police took the 38-year-old Intel software contractor from his Hillsboro home and put him in solitary confinement (according to his wife) in a federal prison. No charges have been filed against him, and his attorneys reportedly are forbidden to discuss the case. What is happening to our country?"
Mike Hawash, by Richard L. Clinton, OregonLive.com, April 8, 2003 (via smirkingchimp.com)

I wonder, too. Please pass this on to everyone you can think of so it doesn't sink under the radar. Thank you.

Hawash is just the first of many Patriot Act 2 American "disappearados". "They came for the Jews...and because I wasnt a Jew I said nothing. Then they came for the Communists...and because I wasnt a Communist I said nothing. Then they came for the trade unionists...and because I wasnt a trade unionist I said nothing. Then they came for me...and there was no one left to hear my cries."
