Events not to miss in Greenwich, CT and NY
Adeel Shahid ad33lsha...@gmail.com stamfordmuslims

Salaam Alaikum,

Monday May 12th and 7:00 pm in Greenwich Public Library, there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear Dr. Stephen Walt speak. His book released last year, "The Israel Lobby" sparked widespread controversy when he along with Dr. John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago attempted to unveil the role of AIPAC and other influential Israeli lobbies on US policy at home and abroad. I unfortunately will be at school on Monday, but please consider availing this opportunity and spread the message to others that may be interested.
