    To Steven,

    I browsed through ‘Your Middle East” website, but after reading the author’s attempt to explain the history of Israel and the Arab-Israeli conflict, which from the first sentence is clearly anti-Israel, I closed out of the page.

    I’ll try the other pieces.

    Hope all is well,
