Armenian Adoption Adventure - Hollywood star George Clooney arrested and handcuffed in Washington Suda...

Without a doubt one of my biggest heros who stands up to bigots, human rights violations and is a friend to all who have suffered the atrocities of Genocide and other violations.  Not only did George get arrested his father also was arrested.  There was also many Armenians protesting against human rights violations.  Getting arrested for protecting the rights of others is an honor that many of us have shared.  None of it stays on record - especially the bullshit Citizen's Arrest.  George Clooney is brave and has more respect from everyone because of this.  More than I can say about a particular Internet Attorney with a gratis radio blog, writes free for rags he claims he get's awards at, then tries to pass himself off as some sort of celebrity with an agent that can't get him any bookings. 
Keep up the good work all of you that fight for human rights, they cannot silence you and the truth always prevails.

Armenian Adoptions and Moroccan notice

Many folks waiting for Armenian children have been persuaded to adopt from Morocco. Not sure why an adoption agency would "bait then switch" But here is the NEW ruling from the state department on adopting as a non-Muslim. Notice: Ministry of Justice Plans to Review Kafala Laws and Procedures On July 25, the Moroccan newspaper Akhbar al-Youm (Today's News) published a story on Justice Minister Mostafa Rahmid's views on the granting of kafala (guardianship) to non-Muslim, non-resident foreigners. The article quotes Minister Rahmid as saying that he has decided to "stop granting guardianship of Moroccan children to foreign families", insisting that "guardianship of abandoned children is for Muslims, and foreign Muslims residing in Morocco." The Minister subsequently stated that kafala guardianship would only be considered for those foreign families who are long-term residents in Morocco. The status of pending kafala petitions by U.S. citizens is unclear. U.S. citizens wishing to obtain kafala of Moroccan children should be aware that is unclear at this time whether the courts will accept new kafala petitions. Please continue to monitor for updated information.
