Dear MER,

I am a college student with not much money, but my check's in the mail to try to do my part to keep you going.... With the U.S. making war noises against Iraq every few months, with what only the severely depraved would deign to call the "peace" process lurching towards final catastrophe. . . people who want to stay informed simply cannot do without MER. Please keep publishing.

Dear MER staff,

My sincere regards and deep gratitude to your unique efforts to speak up the truth about the middle-east region. I have been a MER-subscriber for about two years now, maybe more, and I recommended it to many friends. I always enjoy being informed reading your articles although the information is either depressing, frustrating or infuriating. Believe me, it made a difference for me and for others. Leaving the scene now, would make a new difference, a negative one this time. Lies yield only to truth as darkness yields only to light. You certainly and courageously shed some penetrating light on the seemingly hopeless state of the middle-east. Let not the dark creep back.

I want to help with more than words and...maybe others would like to contribute too.

You guys rock, as I've said before! I can only provide encouragement to you right now. Keep it up and don't let them get to you.



Has MER gone off the net? There are usually regular messages and for the past week I have not received anything. Have I missed a message about an interruption in the info service you provide?

It would be good to have your sense of what it would take to un-suspend MER. Right now all the MER-valuing community has is "you have to help". What exactly would be needed...? MER is important and unique, and worth saving! Thanks for all your work.

Dear MER,

I have been a subscriber of MER from nearly its inception. I value your work, dedication and courage tremendously. At present, I am finishing a degree in Anthropology and History at the University of California...

MER has been eyeopening for thousands of individuals who need your honest and important reporting. For many it is a major source of information to connect them to their heart and home. It's just the thing to keep apathy away and able to regenerate our sense of humanity for our brothers in the Middle East. Sure we get angry at the mainstream media, but because we know that that are all lies and skewed perceptions of reality. But...WITH MER...we know what really goes on in the Middle East today and we know that you are not afraid to expose it.

Unfortunately, as a student, I haven't the financial means to send a check now, (In fact, I think I've never been so poor in my life!)... Certainly, as soon as I am able, I will send a monthly financial contribution to your efforts...Your work is important and valuable and I do NOT wish to see it end...

All the best to you.




To all at mid east realities, I was sad to receive the message that you have to stop publishing. Iwould be willing to give some money to you. I can’t give allot being on a very limited income, but I’m willing to give something. I think it would be very, very sad to see MER have to stop publishing. I like reading your articles. They are full of so much truth. It’s almost impossible to get news agencies that are not only out for the interests of corporate America. The mainstream press is so bias... I would hate to see mid east realities go, because so many Americans don’t get educated the way they should in a free society about the truth of the middle east, and US imperialism. You all there at mid east realities fill that void. I hope that you’ll be able to find a way to be able to continue to publish. Sincerely Vicki Andrada
