Join us for the WAMM Second Monday Movie as we watch "The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel's Public Relations War in the United States." Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian terrirtory and its repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world -- except the United States. This film takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Free and open to the public. Discussion to follow. Free popcorn.

Break fast with the Iraqi community at a Ramadan Iftar meal. Discussion is at 8:30pm and dinner begins at sunset, around 9:00pm. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of prayer, fasting and charity-giving to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the "five pillars" of Islam, and is performed to learn compassion, self-restraint, and generosity. Iftar is the evening meal at sunset when Muslims end their daily fast during Ramadan. Join local members of the Iraqi community and learn what Ramadan means to them in their new home of Minnesota.
