Statement: Though long life democrat, I am running now on Centrist party losing my faith in both democratic and republican parties establishment as they are subservient to special interest groups particularly to AIPAC. As a physician with one of the highest medical degrees in the U.S.A. and after examining more than six thousand patients qualified for medical marijuana under State rules, it is important to make marijuana available and economical. It is helpful in conditions such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, PTSD, ADDH, etc. As Palestinian American, an expert in matters related to Muslim world, with eighty percent of President Obama's speech to Muslim world in Cairo and to Turkish Parliament came from my two letters to him.  His involvement in Afghanistan ill advised contrary to my letter. I believe his advisors and chief of staff, the Neo-leftist?, are no different from Neo-conservative of President Bush who put America in harm's way. Both groups care more about Israel than U.S.A. Grant County Democratic Convention passed resolution twenty years ago and reaffirmed this year for secular state in Palestine where Jews, Muslims and Christians can live like us with equal rights that I introduced. This will end the conflict.  In January 26th I was summoned to Washington DC in live debate to ninety million Arab audiences for 50 minutes through Al Jazeera that Obama was no different from Bush. My participation was tremendous. I educated Arab audience about our political system. I put my heart, soul, pocketbook as volunteer in his campaign so when he had a meeting with preachers in Brownsville, Texas on February 29, 2008, I was twenty miles away campaigning for him. I chose not to meet with him to protect his campaign. I could have been his Secretary of Health or special Envoy to Muslim world!
