Comments policy

Reader comments on The Electronic Intifada are moderated. This means all comments are reviewed before publication.

We welcome comments that represent a range of informed viewpoints and we encourage debate. We also encourage you to make your comment as briefly as possible and to focus on expressing your thoughts clearly. Comments are limited to 2000 characters.

We will not accept personal attacks, racism or bigotry against any group, unsubtantiated claims, obscenity, profanity, commercial promotion, incoherence, impersonation, or posting multiple times in order to evade the character limit.

We do not edit comments, so we will either publish or not publish a comment. Our resources do not allow us to review moderation decisions or generally to alter comments once published. Thank you for contributing.
