News from Lebanon

To bypass CNN & the usual US media, one way of getting news from Lebanon is to use the EI (Electronic Intifada) news. Here is this morning’s sending, with relevant urls:

ELECTRONIC LEBANON: THE LAST 24 HOURS

The following list of 20 articles represents just the last
24 hours of activity on Electronic Lebanon, found at
http://electronicLebanon.net — with a few more are being
added as I write.

It’s really pretty stunning, the sheer amount of
information. What would we have done pre-Internet for
information from a warzone? A lot of the content has come
via Arab discussions lists which include people currently
in Lebanon or neighboring countries. So thanks for all the
help with that. We’ve also put a number of journalists in
touch with people on the ground thanks to phone number
submissions.

Visits are off the charts. More than 323,000 visits and
over 1,228,000 page views since the start of Israel’s
invasion of Gaza on June 27th and war against Lebanon on
July 12th. These figures are 24 hours behind. By now, it’s
most likely around 350,000 visits and 1.5 million page
views.

Today’s press release for Electronic Lebanon can be found
here, if anyone wants to forward it to media contacts:

A shout out to EI Team members Charlotte Kates and Maureen
Clare Murphy, who have been working tirelessly on content
addtions for the site, from New Jersey & Chicago. During
this period, we have had people directly working on the
site from Beirut, the Netherlands, Palestine, DC, New
York, New Jersey, Chicago, Ireland, and Australia.
Correspondent locations would require a far bigger global
list.
