  1. Thanks for putting up this notice, Richard. I’d be interested in any suggestions that readers have regarding the new site – what should be included? Suggestions on software, content, anything else. Thanks!

  2. hello sir ,i’m mohamed ,the algerian journalist ,i understand why you
    haven’t found what you’re looking for in this forums of dialogue ,
    i think the main reason is that it lack the pillars of a sincere and objective dealing of the israeli-palestinian conflict ,it impose a
    pre-conditions and superficial visions about the region and neglect a
    lot of interesting dimensions ( i don’t want to be impolite by saying
    that its initiators ar ignorant about history and religion , but
    i think they have to learn more and avoid infantile concepts like good
    and bad guys ), by the way , congratulations sir richard for the
    twins , they look pretty ,children are a precious gift from god but unfortunately only few people thank god for his endless gifts ,thank
    you .

  3. Sounds like a cool site. I’d just be sure to give a lot of thought to how you’ll moderate the content… as you know, people can occasionally get a little… emotional or hostile! I think DailyKos might be a good model. He seems to be using a useful open-source system which has people register before they can comment, and gives them a sense of ownership by giving them “diary” areas when they can also write their own articles.

  4. kjfalk’s comment is exactly right. There are unfortunately many out there who are threatened by the idea that Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians can engage in serious dialogue. I’m aware that there could be lots of hot tempers within the forum and lots of hostility directed against it from without. We’ll have to have very good security safeguards to protect against things like denial of service attacks and also a no tolerance plan for dealing with excessive vitriol within the forum.
