NOTE TO MER READERS AND SUPPORTERS: As you know we have had to suspend regular
publication but even so we have been able to continue and improve the Website and also to
continue publishing MER FlashBack articles and urgent information. You will also soon be
receiving important new information from the expanding Committee On The Middle East. While
we are trying to make MER even more useful and unique, we want to increase the awareness
of concerned persons and groups about MER, about the wealth of information at the new
Website, and about the MER-TV weekly cable program. This message below has been prepared
for all who regularly receive MER so that you can easily send it to your family, friends
and appropriate users groups, encouraging them to receive MER themselves.

If You Don't Get It, You Just Don't Get It!
News, Information, & Analysis that Governments, Interest Groups and the Corporate
Media Do Not Want You To Know!
"MER is excellent. I don't know of any other publication that so consistently and
fearlessly tells the truth about the oppressive order in the Middle East that has long
been based on an alliance between Washington, the Israelis, and the Arab client
Professor Glenn Perry,
Department of Political Science

"[MER is] an amazing and rare site. Rich in content, information, and facts that
so many other organizations would prefer to hide or color for their own personal reasons.
You have taken over most of the media's responsibility in this country by becoming the
providers of important information, overlooked or purposefully ignored by others... The
truth hurts, but in the end it is the truth..."
Grad Student, Journalism, Columbia Univ.
Former CNN World Report Correspondent, Beirut
"I'm one of many U.S. academicians impressed with the oh-so-rare honesty and
insightfulness of your analyses."
Professor Theodore Keller

"You have rejuvenated all the oppressed peoples of the Middle East! Your articles
are brimming with rage and hostility towards the US, Israel, and the Arab reactionary
regimes. And that's what I love about them!"

FROM THE NEW MER HOMEPAGE - http://www.MiddleEast.Org
There are many sites on the Internet well-financed by business interests, indirectly by
governments, oftentimes by public relationsgroups masquerading as "Institutes"
or "Think-Tanks." MER is very different and quite unique. MER is totally
independent, refreshingly candid, uniquely insightful.
"Fearlessly tells the truth", writes Professor Glenn Perry (Political Science
Dept, India State Univ). "I am fascinated by the wealth of information and accurate
coverage", writes a former CNN World Report correspondent from Beirut. "Rarely
do we ever find an organization that can so impressively report what's really going on.
I'm in love with MER!" writes a Muslim woman college student in California. "The
work you are doing is extremely important...I hope you endure," writes a Professor at
Tel Aviv University. Read for yourself the many hundreds of Reader's Comments received
from throughout the world.
MER's purpose is to distill and present the most incisive and honest, the most
insightful and independent, information and analysis about what is really going on in
today's Middle East as well as in Washington about the Middle East. MER is published with
the help of independent experts and professors throughout the world who have come together
to establish the Committee On The Middle (see the list of persons on the COME Advisory
