Walter Rutter: The Girls of Casa Susanna at Laurence Miller Gallery








While at a Manhattan flea market, antique dealer Robert Swope discovered a collection of intimate snap shots of cross-dressers from the 1950's and 60's. Moved by the mysterious world the photographs revealed, Swope and partner Michael Hurst created a book - Casa Susanna. It was only after the book was published in 2005 that the authors began to learn the story of Casa Susanna and Susanna herself

American policy to deal with the related conflicts between Israel and
Syria and Israel and Lebanon.  Excerpts from the 96 page Report follow,

/*From the Executive Summary:*/



The United States cannot achieve its goals in the Middle East unless it
deals directly with the Arab- Israeli conflict andregional instability.
There must be a renewed and sustained commitment by the United States to
a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace on all fronts: Lebanon, Syria, and
President Bush's June 2002 commitment to a two-state solution for Israel
and Palestine. This commitment must include direct talks with, by, and
between Israel, Lebanon, Palestinians (those who accept Israel's right
to exist), and Syria...



*/Israeli-Palestinian Conflict pp 54-58/*



   * The United States will not be able to achieve its goals in the
     Middle East unless the United States deals directly with the
     Arab-Israeli conflict.

     There must be a renewed and sustained commitment by the United
     States to a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace on all fronts:
     Lebanon, Syria, and President Bush's June 2002 commitment to a
     two-state solution for Israel and Palestine. This commitment must
     include direct talks with, by, and between Israel, Lebanon,
     Palestinians (those who accept Israel's right to exist), and
     particularly Syria--which is the principal transit point for
     shipments of weapons to Hezbollah, and which supports radical
     Palestinian groups.

     The United States does its ally Israel no favors in avoiding
     direct involvement to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict. For several
     reasons, we should act boldly:

     There is no military solution to this conflict.

     The vast majority of the Israeli body politic is tired of being a
     nation perpetually at war.
