Dear Friends of a Just Foreign Policy

Dear Friends of a Just Foreign Policy,

As 2008 comes to a close, we want to thank you for your support and collaboration. Together, we have taken many important steps to bring about a more just foreign policy.

We want to highlight in particular the success of the nation-wide tour we sponsored with your help to call attention to the folly of attacking Iran, including the video with Stephen Kinzer, viewed by a quarter of a million people on YouTube.We thank you for the work you did to block the Resolution (HConRes 362) on Capitol Hill that demanded that the President work to blockade Iran's gas imports, an act of war. With your help we published an Experts' Statement on Iran saying that direct, unconditional and comprehensive negotiations are most likely to succeed, and delivered it to Members of Congress and members of Obama's transition team, who received it warmly.

Thank you for working with us toward ending the war in Afghanistan, and for supporting us in calling for increased efforts for diplomacy with insurgents in Afghanistan and with neighboring countries to achieve a political resolution of Afghanistan's conflicts, and for voting with us at to call for action on Iran with the new Administration.

Thank you for the support that allows us to publish the Daily News Summary, bringing you the latest, must-read news summaries on major foreign policy issues. And thank you for calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas and an end to the blockade on Gaza .

This year, once again, we thank you for all you do for a just foreign policy,

Sarah Burns, Robert Naiman and Chelsea Mozen
