Reader's Comments From Throughout The World - April 1997
For Previous MER information, commentaries, & Readers Comments:
I am very much informed about the Middle East after reading your posts on the www...
I like to thank you very much for all the effort you've put into MER. I highly admire your courage and determination and specially your sensitivity towards injustice. As Albert Einstein used to say, "small is the number of them that see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts." Youdefinitely belong to this small group of people. My congratulations to you
I'm really amazed at what a stellar bunch you've gotten together -- many of the names I recognize as the absolute cream of the commentators, etc., on the Middle East... I think your publication is brilliant, and the best that I've seen anywhere.I appreciate both the even-handedness of information and the bite in your editorials. Mentioning credit where credit is due and blame where blame is due seems to be such a rarity in reporting on ME issues.
First let me say how much I appreciate your work in support of the Palestinian struggle. Your stuff is always current, truthful and to the point.

Thank you for your great coverage, and your courage.
First I want to thank you for a great piece of work. I really think that you do a great job telling the TRUTH instead of the propaganda we read in the newspapers.
My name is Rebecca Abou-Chedid and I am Secretary of the Arab Club at Cornell University... I have been receiving your e-mails the last few months; I find them informative and insightful. You have my full support and I am ready to assist in any way.
A friend here in Baku Azerbaijan introduced me to MER, through coping articles to me. I recently read your article on Prince Bandar, unfortunatley this is true of too many of our peers nowadays. Good article and glad I am now listed with yourselves to recieve more of your revealing articles.
I'm a Palestinian currently in the US to work on my Ph.D in economics at Oklahoma State University. It is hard enough nowadays to find 'mideast' stories in the mainstream media... But when it comes to news from the region I come from, the little that you could find is heavyly distorted, reactionary, and pro-Zionist. And the most distorted thing about it is its definition of terms like: "peace", "terrorism", "extremist", "moderate", and even "middleeast"... Anyway, its all these distortions that make MER an indispensable light in this sea of media darkness as I said before. Good luck!
Dear MER,
I have been recieving your articles for over a year and I can not get enough of them...!
Dear Sirs, I have no words to thank all of you for your very good work. I will suggest anybody interested in these topics not to miss your precious site. I pray God to bless you and everybody fights for a free Palestine.
...the humour is very nice - long over due -- the forthrightness is admirable and daring. I just like it all. I am a muslim
... I hope you endure. The work you are doing is extremely important, even with what you consider a limited distribution. I know many people here [in Israel] do get MER.
