A Roanoke Valley native arrested and detained by Israeli forces last May is once again headed into harm's way... on a new mission overseas. This time Nathan Musselman hopes to prevent a U-S attack on Iraq. Keith Humphry sat down with him this past week for an in-depth interview.

As part of a group called Voices in the Wilderness, he intends to physically stand in the way... between Iraqi targets and the U-S military... if American forces go back to Iraq.

BECAUSE WE HUMANS HAVE BEEN TRYING IT FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AND IT HASN'T GOTTEN US VERY FAR. THAT I THINK IS NAIVE.))

As we chatted comfortably in his parent's suburban home, I wondered how Musselman came by his views on the privilege of power and lavish lifestyles. [17:27:10] ((I WAS BORN INTO THIS KIND OF LIFE.

Are you a solider of non-violence? I DON'T PARTICULARLY LIKE MILITARY LANGUAGE, BUT IF YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THAT, OKAY.))
[RUNS= :58]

While Musselman has already spent some time in Iraq, he may be more familiar with Palestine. He believes the continued presence of Israeli troops in the West Bank is THE cause of violence there. [17:33:52] ((THE PALESTINIANS WHO RESIST THE OCCUPATION VIOLENTLY- -THROUGH WHATEVER MEANS THEY CHOOSE TO DO- - WON'T STOP AND WHY SHOULD THEY (:08) AS LONG AS SUCH INJUSTICES ARE HAPPENING TO THEIR PEOPLE EVERYDAY, IT WON'T STOP.

Well, it's certainly not going to end as long as Hamas says, "Well you blew up our leader, so we're going to kill seven of your students at Hebrew University?" RIGHT.
