There were a record number of dispatches sent in July, mainly as a result of the intense flare-up of activity in Gaza, Israel and Lebanon. After this week’s remaining dispatches, there will be few or no dispatches for the rest of this month.


At present, mainly because of the situation in Lebanon, I am being sent about 700 emails a day. Among these are dozens and dozens of requests for help, advice or information. It is physically impossible for me to read all these, let alone reply to them adequately. I would kindly request that all non-journalists on this list refrain from asking for my assistance for the rest of the month. Thank you for your understanding. Enjoy your summer.
