WHY IS ISRAEL THE ONLY MIDDLE EASTERN INDYMEDIA SITE???

by Ibn Sayeed Saturday, Jan. 25, 2003 at 4:36 PM

I was perusing the site and noticed that there are no IndyMedia sites available for countries that I have a particular interest in, such as Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Kuwait, Jordan, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Oman, Qatar, U.A.E, etc. Why not? Israel is the biggest fascist state in the world and they have and Indy Media Site? This just doesn't seem to make any sense?!?

It is truly confusing. I mean, Israel, a country more repressive than Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Russia, Mao's China and Bush's America combined has an IndyMedia site. At least the Israelis and their Palestinian in Israeli controlled Eastern Jersulam have the ability to disseminate information thru IndyMedia in the hopes of eventually removing the tyranical yoke of Zionazism from their midst.

But why don't other Middle Eastern States have an Indy Media site. I don't know who is in charge of creating new sites (do you need contacts in the area) but I recently noticed sites going up in places as diverse as Idaho and Jakarta....so why no sites in Sudan (which has a terrible problem with Arabs indenturing Black Slaves), Lebanon (which after 20 years of Israeli occupation is now a vassal state of Lebanon) and most importantly Saudi Arabia (I hear they have a terrible Women's rights record.

I urge IMCers to immediately petittion IMC to start forumlating IMC sites in these countries....don't these people have ideas to share with us. It should not just be our place to dictate to them what is right for them.

I hereby demand that IMC get in touch with media representatives in the Middle East and form a coalition of middle eastern Independent Media Centers, I think it could breed great success and would finally get rid of the Zionist hegemony over the region's media (kind of sounds like the US, no?)
