    David Tafuri, a partner in the firm's Washington office, wrote an opinion piece published by The Wall Street Journal on August 25, 2010, that addresses a recent trip he made to Gaza and the West Bank with Google executives.


    The op-ed examined how this region, because of its restrictions, views the Internet as the most promising sector for job creation.  Many West Bank companies have already generated revenue from Internet-focused businesses and are drawing in foreign investment, but the impact goes beyond economics. 


    "Perhaps most significant, however, is that Palestinians' isolation—and inability to travel and import or export goods—means that the Web is their main way to connect with the outside world," Mr. Tafuri wrote.
