Dear Friend,

I was on vacation in Mexico for twelve days, so there was a delay in preparing American Editorial Review. Even with attention focused on Iraq, there have been some important Israel-related reports in American newspapers.

As usual, let me know either if you want to suggest additional names to add to our list or if you want your name removed.
