Gazans Support Barack Hussein Obama

"Hello, I'm calling from Gaza. I want some of your time. We are supporting Barack Obama…"

A group of 24 students and young professionals gather in the Gaza Strip nightly to phone random telephone numbers in the United States, urging the voices at the other end to "vote for Barack Obama."

The group has called between 5,000 and 6,000 Americans. Over 120,000 calls have been placed.

Although only American citizens can actually cast a ballot in the election, this Gaza-based effort is a forceful demonstration of how Internet technology opens the door for anyone, anywhere to influence U.S. politics. Even if they have never even been to the U.S.A.

Far from utilizing a state-of-the art call-center of the sort that have become a mainstay of American political marketing, the Gaza callers are amateur volunteers who meet in a local Internet café or in a stark room at a local youth center equipped with little more than desks, chairs and outlets for the personal computers through which they will make their calls. That -- and the desire to see Barack Hussein Obama become president of the United States.
