Subject: Re: Middle East Internet Resources #1

Dear Netters:

I tried to avoid creating a lot of traffic on the list, but I received so many requests for the Middle East lists, that I can't answer each request personally due to the lack of time. I will have to post the information to the list. I apologize for the inconvenience this might be causing. Thank you.
