In the “Age of Terror” information can either lessen or increase our fear. When it comes to the Middle East, Palestine, and the War on Terror, infromation portals like Electronic Intifada (EI) have been attempting to educate people, in particular Arab Americans, about the side of the coin the Bush Administration doesn’t want anyone to see.
