The Electronic Intifada

The Electronic Intifada

‘The Revolution will not be televised’ – but it will be web-based. That, at least, is the hope of four activists who joined forces last November to create an unprecedented new web site, The Electronic Intifada. Even before its official launch on February 23th, the site had been lauded in the Dutch morning newspaper “De Volkskrant,” and had received praise from iconoclastic columnist Alexander Cockburn, who wrote in The Nation that “Even the relatively better-informed mainstream accounts fail to convey the brutality of [Israel’s apartheid policies]. There are a number of excellent news outlets for those who want unjaundiced reporting….The Electronic Intifada…is trusted.”
