'Peace Mom' Plans to Resume Protest at Bush's Ranch
By ANGELA K. BROWN, AP
CRAWFORD, Texas (Nov. 16) - The fallen soldier's mother who drew thousands to her 26-day war protest near President Bush's ranch this summer plans to return for Thanksgiving next week, despite new county ordinances banning roadside camping.
Cindy Sheehan and at least a dozen supporters are prepared to be arrested as they return to the makeshift campsite along the road leading to Bush's ranch, where he is expected to spend the holiday.
"It is critical for our democracy that we continue to ask the same questions that Cindy Sheehan asked this summer: What is the noble cause for the war with Iraq, and at what point do we say enough bloodshed has happened?" said Hadi Jawad, co-founder of the Crawford Peace House.
Bush has defended the decision to go into Iraq in 2003, citing the threat posed by Saddam Hussein. Bush also has said troops need to remain in Iraq as long as necessary.
Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son Casey was killed in Iraq last year, was not arrested during the vigil that coincided with Bush's working vacation at his ranch just outside Crawford.
But dozens of residents in the rural area complained of noise and traffic congestion as the protesters pitched tents in shallow ditches about 2 1/2 miles away from the ranch. Some traffic was from counter protests of hundreds of Bush supporters who said Sheehan's group was hurting troop morale.
A month later, McLennan County commissioners approved the new ordinances, which prohibit parking on parts of 14 roads near the ranch - roughly a 5-mile radius - and prohibit camping in any county ditch. The laws also ban portable toilets in ditches.

......said Hadi Jawad, co-founder of the Crawford Peace House.
"Hadi Jawad"???? That doesn't sound like an English name. French? German? Isreali? Irish?
Sounds kinda burqua-esque
For God's sake, why is the AP picking up this stupid story? WHO CARES what Mother Sheehan does for Thanksgiving? Simple - another thread along the way to IMPEACHMENT. Kick GWB while he is down, just like the Senate is doing.
Once she went from demanding troops be removed from New Orleans, to attacking hitlery clinton, the media tired of her antics.
I see a chance to aid the homeless here. This woman is never at home, let's give her house to the poor!
From the LIBERAL LUNACY website........
Hadi Jawad ~ Iraqi founder of Crawford Peace House
The driving force behind the Crawford Peace House is an Iraqi and Saddam sympathizer by the name of Hadi Jawad, whose full name is Dr. Safa Hadi Jawad al-Habboubi. In addition to his Crawford residence, Jawad also maintains a home in Kensington, England, known as a breeding ground for Islamic terrorists.
Jawad, who has been stage managing the Cindy Sheehan protest, called Saddam's overthrow a "criminal act." He has the complete destruction of Israel on his agenda and is a supporter of Islamic terrorism having ties to both the PLO and Hamas.
Jawad sees coalition forces not as liberators but as subjugators of Iraq's people and resources.
"They have resorted to war, to violence, to killing thousands of Iraqi civilians," he said. "The means they have resorted to to accomplish the removal of the regime is unconscionable. It's a criminal act."
This account of a protest against Israel shows that the Peace House is pursuing an anti Israel and anti semitic agenda. One of the speakers at the event was Eugene Bird, the president of the Council for the National Interest, whose virulent wish to destroy Israel would make the named Council to Nuke Israel a more apt appellation.
In December of 2001, Jawad said of the U.S.-lead efforts in Afghanistan. "As the war machinery of the U.S. and U.K. came back to life once again and rained death and destruction on the civilian population of Afghanistan, efforts to eradicate well-entrenched leadership there yield collateral damage of colossal proportions: ruined economies, massive unemployment, extremes of poverty, destroyed infrastructure, crippled health care systems; terminally ill, the extreme elderly, children under five, the most vulnerable segments of any society, killed by the thousandsall this in the name of protecting freedom and democracy."
Jawad really missed the mark with that one. The people of Afghanistan are infinitely better off now than they were under the iron fist of the Taliban.
Who is she again?
More like "piece-of-crap" mom.
They should arrest her this time, and get her a head doctor. I will not pick on this wretch anymore.
His real name is Jihad Dawa - Hadi Jawad is a clever anagram he uses.
Nobody to spend Thanksgiving with - tsk.
She's just dying for attention.
In a sane world this would be an unneccesary law.
Will you guys from the North send us a Blue Norther? With lots of ice and bitter temps? Just for a couple days.
I say let her make even more of an arse out of herself and her supporters.
She's not changing anyone's mind.
Maybe they could pick them all up and hold for a psych evaluation until the following week.
Hillary's base is acting up again....Democrats Will Not Protect America against terrorism.....they want to appease them and Cindy is their poster girl. Remember who willingly fights for Liberty and Freedom and who gives it lip service in the next election. If all elected and those running for election or re-election dont publicly denounce this woman, LET THEM KNON NOW THEY WONT GET YOUR VOTE! Public discourse is one thing but Cindy is a traitor to her country in no uncertain terms This Woman is a Traitor and is abusing her country without let up in a time of war by giving Aid and Comfort to our enemies.
There should be a petition started stating that Knowingly trespassing and breaking a law is frivolous and criminal. And if having that knowledge and [Sheehan] persists, the perpetrator will go to jail for a very long time with no appeal. ( no reporters or photographers allowed where incarcerated without approval from the Governor of that state). For safety reasons, this woman should not be allowed within 100 miles of the Presidents Texas White House. She is backed by enemies of the USA!
Piece of what?
Cashing in on her son's death puts her a little above Muzzie mom's who dress their kids in semtex overcoats and send them off with a kiss on the forehead and a falafal in their Assama Bin Schtupin lunch box to blow up other children in an Israeli day care.
Cindy She rat giving aid and comfort to the enemy that killed her own son.
