Subject : First impressions.........
I happened by your paper on a web at a hospital here in the United
States where I work along with
physicians from diverse countries such as Egypt,
Syria, Jordan, Pakistan, India, and Israel.
I was pleasantly surprised to see many different points of view
within your letters to the editor
section. Articles mentioned included citizens
concern about worsening corruption in the kingdom of Jordan,
the continuing treatment of women in
certain parts of the Mideast as second-class
As a U.S. citizen, I find your publication valuable in gaining insight
as to what the average "man on the
street" might be thinking in the various Mideastern
countries. These insights are very important in helping me
form a larger, more objective
framework with which to integrate present day events.
"Black and White" (i.e. extremist) viewpoints on either side cloud
the view of the real landscape on
which us "ordinary men" live.
I will continue to follow your publication to monitor the fast-moving
changes occurring especially in
present day Syria, Jordan and Egypt.
