Please Help NileMedia grow
an open letter to our readers
Dear NileMedia visitor: We would like to begin by apologizing for not
responding to all our mail. We read all our mail but cannot hope to respond
to all of it. Because of your support, we have managed to grow at an
astounding rate, last month we grew by 40%. Basically if we keep growing at
that rate, we will become, if not an eight hundred pound gorilla, at least a
baby gorilla with strong teeth. While we get the ocassional complaint, most
of our mail is very supportive. We are now getting 25% of our visitors from
outside the United States.
We do not send out emails to our mailing list, because of legal liability
considerations. We do not have chat rooms, since they tend to attract the
zionist lunatic fringe and we have no in-house therapist to treat them. So,
we ask that you set NileMedia as one of your favorite links and visit us as
often as you can. We update the site three or four times a week. And quite
a bit of our material is original.
We seem to have drawn a lot of attention from the activist community and we
certainly encourage individual Americans to take a stand. In this regard, we
would especially like to honor those Americans and Europeans who have
volunteered to act as Human Shields for Palestinian communities under Israeli
These courageous Americans put their lives on the line every day. Since the
international community and the United States government refuse to provide
the Palestinians with protection from lethal Israeli assaults, these gutsy
activists are taking matters into their own hands and putting their personal
safety on the line. We, at NileMedia, pray for their safe return and thank
them for their courage. They also bring to the Palestinian struggle for
Independence a concrete sign of support and concern and solidarity from many
progressive elements in the United States and Europe.
We will try to bring you their stories on NileMedia and encourage the
activists themselves to submit their work for publication.
We would like to thank the many other pro-Palestinian web-sites that continue
to alert the world to the daily repression of the Israeli occupation. In
this regard, we would like to mention MediaMonitors.net and
MiddleEastWire.com, PMWatch.com and Abunimah.org. Please give them your
support. These are important initiatives that are really having an effect in
taking on the formidable Israeli Lobby. Lets help them thrive.
And we do have a request for you. Help us spread our message by mentioning
NileMedia to your friends, co-workers and relatives. If you have your own
website, or know someone who does, please advise them that we have free
content. We have grown simply on the strength of word of mouth. And it has
carried us to the six corners of the earth. So, help us out a little and let
others know that NileMedia.com is serious about speaking truth to power.
