Dylan Connor "Feza, Feza"

Dylan Connor Hosts Syria Relief Concert in NYC; Fundraising Single 'Feza Feza' Rapidly Reaching Thousands on Youtube
Dylan Connor is a Connecticut-based singer, songwriter, Latin teacher, devoted husband and father. His family - including his uncle, cult film maker Robert Downey and his cousin, actor Robert Downey Jr. - have influenced, encouraged and inspired Dylan deeply, leading him on many musical adventures in Hollywood and abroad.
Dylan (whose wife is Syrian) is the first and only American artist to be writing and singing songs for Syria. His protest song 'Feza Feza' (which means 'Help Help') was recorded and shot in the space of 24 hours, after Dylan heard a Syrian activist interviewed on CNN say "When I chant freedom, I can hear my voice for the first time."

US Navy rescues Iranian fishing boat from pirates

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Just days after Iranian leaders warned the U.S. to keeps its aircraft carriers out of the Persian Gulf, a U.S. Navy ship that had just finished operations in the Gulf rescued an Iranian fishing boat that had been commandeered by suspected Somali pirates.

U.S. Navy officials said that American forces flying off the guided-missile destroyer USS Kidd responded to a distress call from the Iranian ship, the Al Molai, which had been held captive by pirates for more than 40 days.

A U.S. Navy team boarded the ship Thursday and detained 15 pirates who had been holding the 13-member Iranian crew hostage and were using the vessel as a "mother ship" for pirating operations in the Persian Gulf.

WASHINGTON (AP) Another member of the Kennedy family moved closer to entering the political arena on Thursday, as Joseph Kennedy III announced he was forming an exploratory committee as a first step toward a run for the U.S. House.

Kennedy, 31, is the son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II and a grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy. He said he planned to meet with residents of Massachusetts' 4th Congressional District before making a final decision on whether to seek the seat held by retiring Democratic Rep. Barney Frank. Party officials fully expect Kennedy to be a candidate.
