At the height of the war in the Lebanon, you can imagine that the public affairs department at the Israeli Embassy in London is pretty busy, sending information out to all who ask for it.
Obviously, "new" communications technology comes to the fore, with much of the material being sent by e-mail.
But not to AOL subscribers. The company has unilaterally decided that any e-mails sent out by the Israeli Embassy are automatically classified as "spam" and refuses to deliver them. That applies to correspondence as well as routine mailings.
We understand that Hezbolla seems to have no difficulty getting its messages through to "Arabs On Line" subscribers.
But, it ain’t all bad.
