Hi Colin! You wrote: "Generally, I have to go to Ha`aretz and even the Jerusalem Post to get the raw data before it`s been filtered." I suppose this is a compliment to our Jewish sources which write credibly on current events. And in English for persons like yourself. Pity you cannot go to the Arabic sources for "raw data" on the same basis. I've often wondered why people who don't like Israel or Jews are so enamored with our press to the exclusion of real Jew-hating publications like Egypt's Al Ahram, which will gladly publish installments from the "Protocols" to satisfy any good Israel-haters lust. Curious phenomena. Me, I always read the Arab papers to find out what's up with Arab progressive democracy and humanisitc values cherished by "the leftist." You have to do alot of reading in Arabic to uncover those gems, I'll tell you. And curiously, they don't have Talkback. Why's that? Write Soon! Shalom!
