Question 1.11:
When should I post to talk.politics.mideast? Soc.culture.Arabic?


Talk.politics.mideast was created specifically for discussions of the politics of the interaction of middle eastern countries. The Arab-Israeli conflict, the Turkish-Armenian conflict, and similar battles are appropriate topics for the list, at least until separate groups are created for those subtopics. A post about the PLO or terrorism probably belongs in T.P.M.

Internal Arab politics generally belong on soc.culture.arabic. Internal Israeli politics should be discussed in soc.culture.israel.
