Gabi Weber: Unsere Homepage/Our Homepage – The OtherSite – Truth? Justice? Peace?

(English below)

Liebe Leserinnen und Leser,

anstatt Ihnen heute wieder einen Newsletter unserer Homepage zu schicken, nutze ich diese Mail zu einer kleinen Zwischenbilanz.

The OtherSite – Truth? Justice? Peace? www.othersite.org gründeten Simon Könl und ich vor einigen Monaten.
Simon hat die kompletten technischen Dinge, das Layout und die "Basics" kreiert. Ich selbst stelle die Beiträge ein und versende unsere Newsletter an meinen Verteiler, sowohl national als auch international.

Dank der Unterstützung unserer Autorinnen und Autoren mit ihren guten Artikeln, dank der Erlaubnis, Beiträge von anderen Seiten zu übernehmen, dank der fleißigen Arbeit all derer, die uns Links zukommen lassen und schlussendlich auch dank unseres eigenen Einsatzes stieg unsere Homepage im Ranking von Alexa innerhalb von drei Monaten von 2.700.000 auf heute 557.064. http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/othersite.org#. In Deutschland liegen wir auf Platz 27.644 (mit steigender Tendenz).
Zur Erklärung: Die Seite mit den meisten Besuchern und Seitenklicks ist die Nummer 1 im Ranking. Derzeit belegt Google Platz 1, Facebook Platz 2 und Youtube Platz 3.

Hier noch ein Vergleich mit anderen Homepages, die ich oft als Quelle heranziehe:

Palestine Chronicle – Ranking 465.790
Gilad Atzmon – Ranking 222.972
Counterpunch – Ranking 37.863
Information Clearing House – 37.233
Global Research – Ranking 16.426

usw….

Das ist ein wirklich großer Erfolg für uns, auf den wir stolz sind, denn bis jetzt "findet" noch keine Suchmaschine unsere Seite und trotzdem steigt unser Ranking tagtäglich.  Auch haben wir keinerlei finanzielle Mittel für diese Arbeit zur Verfügung und tun dies "ganz nebenbei" in unserer "Freizeit".

Der Erfolg stimuliert und motiviert, weiter zu machen und immer besser zu werden.

Dies ist aber nur dann möglich, wenn Sie uns treu bleiben, täglich The OtherSite besuchen, gerne auch Beitrags-Tips geben oder selbst verfassen und Andere dazu motivieren, sich die Seite anzusehen. Verlinken Sie sich mit uns.

Leider können wir nicht alle wichtigen Beiträge online stellen, wofür es natürlich verschiedene Gründe gibt. Der Hauptfaktor hierbei ist definitiv die Tatsache, dass der Tag nur 24 Stunden hat:):)

DANKE für Ihre Unterstützung, danke für Ihre Treue!

Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht aus Freiburg

Gabi Weber

Dear Readers,

instead of sending a newsletter with the latest posts of our homepage The OtherSite – Truth? Justice? Peace? I would like to give you a resume of the last three months, since we intensified the work for our site www.othersite.org.

Together with Simon Köhl, I founded this homepage to create a platform for open exchange of idea and discourse without censorship, mainly about topics related to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Thanks to our contributors providing us with brilliant articles, thanks to all the people sending us recommended links, thanks to the permission of other homepages to publish their material and of course thanks to ourselves we managed to achieve a very good Alexa-ranking within three months. We started at 2.700.000 and are today at 557.064 http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/othersite.org#
(The most popular site is Google ranked #1, Facebook #2, Youtube #3).

Here is a comparison with some sites we often take as source:

Palestine Chronicle – Ranking 465.790
Gilad Atzmon – Ranking 222.972
Counterpunch – Ranking 37.863
Information Clearing House – 37.233
Global Research – Ranking 16.426

We are very proud about the success that we have although not a single search machine in the web finds our homepage until now. (We are working on this topic).
And also we are running the site without a single penny, using our own resources (mainly time) doing it besides our full-time jobs.

This stimulates and motivates us to get better and better each day.

Please help us to spread the message, visit our homepage www.othersite.org, forward us to your friends and colleagues and send us your own or other contributions that are important for you and may be important for all of us. We are not able to answer all the emails we get, but you should know that we are thankful for every single contribution even if we cannot publish them all.

Thank you for all your support!

Best wishes

Gabi Weber, Freiburg

The OtherSiteTruth? Justice? Peace? Is a new initiative by Dr. Gabi Weber & Simon Köhl in Freiburg, South Germany.

It aims at providing a platform for open exchange of idea and discourse without censorship, mainly about topics related to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Our aim is to encourage journalists, thinkers, writers, artists, musicians and activists to share their thoughts and  to narrate their own story.

It is our belief  that German society could benefit from receiving "true" information concerning Palestine and the Arab world from additional sources rather than the usual mainstream media.

Furthermore the aim is to collate and disseminate relevant articles from the alternative media about Middle Eastern topics namely human rights, which Dr. Weber started to deal with since the war on the Palestinian Gaza Strip in 2008-2009.

Moreover, we aspire to present the German-language readers with content written in German (which will be sorted in one section) and with relevant content translated into German from other languages. ( A section in English will be established).

Gradually, a database of articles will be collated and demonstrated on this website which will be conducive for in-depth research. In this way, we will enhance availability and accessibility to the reader.

The website is open to all and particularly to any valuable material, be it abstract information or critical analysis. Names of authors and or any other people assisting in the publication process may appear on the website, should they have no objection. The initiative would benefit from passionate individuals who are able to contribute, including writers, translators and editors etc.

Dr. Gabi Weber

 … is a German physician, working full-time in an orthopedic rehabilitation hospital, having three Palestinian-German kids.

Due to her first-hand experience with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict she started her political activism in January 2009, during the war on Gaza. Gabi began to transmit news from alternative media, built a useful internet list and a network, corresponding with organisations, activists, scholars, schools and other groups all around the world.

In May 2010 she founded Cafe Palestine Freiburg e. V. together with a friend. Cafe Palestine is a non-profit body organising lectures, talks, conferences, exhibitions, concerts and many other activities on a monthly basis. Topics are related to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.http://cafepalestinefreiburg.blogspot.de/

You can find an interview with Dr. Gabi Weber in German here: http://www.muslim-markt.de/interview/2012/weber.htm

 

Simon Köhl is a German hydrologist working for a software company. During his childhood he read a series of books dealing with the German history – such as "Mit dem Rücken zur Wand"  and "Die weiße Rose". This lead him to further investigate this particular period of German history. Over time and due to his engagement with the holocaust he developed special interest in Israel and the Palestinian cause

Since the Hydrological Institue of Freiburg University had a strong cooperation with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Simon was wondering about the other side and in particular Palestinian water issues. Finally he spent six months of internship at Birzeit University in the West Bank and the PWA (Palestinian Water Authority). He underwent a most powerful experience, which affected his everyday life
