Good stuff Woz!

There is some fresh information here [eit.ajeeb.com] regarding current Internet usage statistics in the middle east.

In Israel section you can as well add Russian language (spoken by 1/6 of the population).

As to the search engines in the Israeli section you can add at least 3: [walla.co.il...] , [nana.co.il...] , [zulu.co.il...]

There are also a couple of good search portals in Russian.
