I'm extremely grateful
for your newsletters for they allow the
younger people, who are usually dependent upon the media's hypocritical
and biased news, to assimilate information about the true day-to-day
incidents which occur in the Middle East. Your noble efforts
true realities to be known by those that wish to learn the truth
along with many other recipients, are truly grateful.
Thank you kindly.

Hello, my name is Sami Mashney. I am an Arab American attorney
I read your piece concerning the 50th Year Anniversary. I completely
agree with your grim yet factual assesment of the situation and
characterisation of most (not all) of the persons and organisations
mentioned in your piece.
Please send me more information. I am more angry and frustrated
than you are.
I really enjoy your
messages for the reason that they are very
informative and critical of all contemparary Middle Eastern issues.
can also say that the insight you provide is valuable in that it

Insha'Allah you receive this email in the best of health and IMAAN.
I just received a subscription of one of your emails from a friend.
truly found your article to be very interesting. I would
subscribe to your weekly emails.
MER is indeed a breath of fresh air. I am almost choked with the
partial truths, and blatant lies of the everyday news that we read
the conventional media, until I saw your site.
Its a shame, though for the established news agencies of the world
despite their HUGE resources, they cannot even tell the world of
basic and simple truths about what is really happening in the mideast,
or for that matter, the world, today?
My deepest appreciation are due to those in MER. Keep it up.

For some time I have viewed your site with interest and understanding.
I thank you for your courage and dedication and I hope you may
successfully in the coming years. Please send me whatever is required

You do excellent work. Just trying to be helpful.
For a long time I have received your MER articles and reports.
For that I want to thank you very much! Always it was interesting
and gave a lot of information I couldn't get from the official
german media... I want to thank you again for the very interesting
informations I've got for the last years! I wish you all the best
Your reports are excellent and useful for my research. Would you
please include me on your mailing list. Thank you

I will be sending a check for $100 today. Keep up the good
work. The video with Fisk was very informative. When
the Israeli's learn not to lie? And our government, too.

Hi MER - As someone who takes every opportunity to alert
both Arabs and non-Arabs to the grave situation in the
Arab World and thus in the world, I know what it means
for someone to give his/her word of support. Please, note

You have, and still do a wonderful job in telling the world of

Dear COME - At the moment I'm able only to give you spiritual support.
work these days almost exclusively as a volunteer for a Palestinian

receiving your articles, and the gratitude is all I know I can
