      ELECTRONIC IRAQ PROJECT LAUNCHED AS THE UNITED
      STATES GOVERNMENT PREPARES FOR FULL SCALE WAR

      "President Bush: War is a last resort. We have not
      exhausted every other possible means in the fight
      against terrorism and Saddam Hussein and I don't
      understand how you will personally justify loss of
      life if you don't take every other option first."

      -- extract from an open letter to President Bush
      from Fran Quigley, the mother of a US soldier,
      counterpunch.org, 31 January 2003.


      A brand new online news project, Electronic Iraq -- found at
      electronicIraq.net -- has been launched by veteran antiwar
      campaigners Voices in the Wilderness (founded 1996) and
      respected Middle East supplementary news publishers, the
      Electronic Intifada (founded 2001).

      Electronic Iraq was launched in February 2003 as the U.S.
      government made clear its determination to go to war against
      Iraq. Based firmly on humanitarian foundations, the
      Electronic Iraq online magazine offers News & Analysis,
      Opinion/Editorial, Iraq Diaries, International Law, Aid &
      Development, Fact Sheets, and Action & Activism.

      The Iraq Diaries section offers eyewitness reports from
      Iraq, and Electronic Iraq's intention is to publish diary
      accounts from on the ground during any hostilities.

      The Electronic Iraq website utilises the latest in
      technology to publish reports from around the world,
      including from on the ground in Iraq, easily added to the
      site by nontechnical writers and editors of the Electronic
      Iraq team. Content from this website can be easily
      syndicated onto other friendly sites by webmasters.

      MORE ABOUT ELECTRONIC IRAQ'S FOUNDERS

      Voices in the Wilderness (VitW)

      VitW is a joint US/UK campaign to end the economic sanctions
      against the people of Iraq. Since March 1996, nearly fifty
      Voices delegations have traveled to Iraq. Today, as the
      United States makes new threats against Iraq, Voices is
      maintaining a constant presence in Iraq in solidarity with
      the Iraqi people. In the schools and hospitals, on the
      streets and in the homes of Baghdad, Basra, Mosul and other
      cities we have seen the effects of more than a decade of
      economic sanctions and frequent bombings. Now we see the
      anger and fear caused by new threats of violence. For more
      information, see http://www.vitw.org


      The Electronic Intifada (EI)

      EI, an online educational gateway to information about the
      Israeli-Palestinian conflict, offering reference material,
      commentary and analysis, personal journals from the
      front lines of the conflict, media news and analysis, and
      even satire. Launched 23 February 2001, EI is independent of
      any political, factional, ethnic, or religious affiliation,
      and bases its view of the conflict on the foundations of
      universal human rights and international law. For more
