I personally think this would be the best idea. There is a forum for Katrina which is somewhat old news at this point. Contrarily, I see the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict attracting attention for years to come even if the topic will experience dry spells at times. Its own forum might not be
a bad idea in the long run. Just my two humble cents to keep everything organized.
Edit to add: I like someone's idea on the next page, too, about having a forum for all current events dealing with the Middle East. That would be
even better due to the broader nature. It would include Israeli and Palestinian/Gaza issues as well as all Middle East topics, which will probably be
a hot spot for a long time.
