“On many issues – religion, politics, philosophy, strategy, tactics – we who have brought this suit strongly disagree with each other. But we all agree that the government’s … swallow-it-all collection of billions of telephone records from more than a hundred million Americans – is illegal, is destructive to American freedom … and must be stopped.”

— Rabbi Arthur Waskow of the Philadelphia-based Shalom Center, in announcing a suit against the National Security Agency’s surveillance of U.S. phone calls. He was joined in the suit by People for the American Way, Human Rights Watch and several other groups.
