790RE: [iwar] The Middle East InfoWar Conflict - Update
- Dec 8, 2000I did not say that this point of view was represented on the site, I was
just commenting on the replies in your earlier mail.
I would love to contribute to articles on your website, however I am pressed
for time due to work environments.
In order to have a more meaningful contribution to the Information warfare.
I suggest that you set up a formal forum for people who want to contribute
articles to the site. This forum should be managed by a person who suggests
direction or focus of articles to be published as part of a quarterly theme,
something like a Magazine, only that contribution to this would be purely
voluntary with free distribution. This will provide the contributors some
target to write for.
At least that is my view point.

stories written about the issues by other parties and commentary on the
overall situation. It also contains copies of Palestinean viewpoints in
larger volume than those of Israeli viewpoints. But the best thing you
could do to present a different viewpoint would be to provide those
views, which I will put on the site.

damage to the Israelis than the other way around - for exactly the resons
you point out - when you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.
