Trackback - Linking articles across multiple sites

I have just finished implementing TrackBack, a new feature of Movable Type.

It basically allows the adminsitrators of sites that run Movable Type to link their entries and articles automatically. Instead of just adding a link manually to an entry in another site/blog, I can link my entry to the remote entry automatically.

If anyone links to one of the articles on you'll see "TrackBack (1)" below - you can then click on "TrackBack (1)" and get the list of related articles.

For more information of TrackBack see:

Mr. Adler,

The International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism ( has published a statistical analysis of Palestinian and Israeli fatalities since Arafat and his thugs refused peace and started to murder unarmed Israeli civilians in October of 2000.

* 80% of the Israeli fatalities were non-combattants, unarmed civilians.
* 30% of the Israeli fatalities were women.
* 2% of the Israeli fatalities were killed by Israeli actions, by mistake.
* 30% of the Israeli fatalities were non-combattants over the age of 39.

On the other hand:

* 54% of the Palestinian fatalities were combattants, mostly armed men.
* 3% of the Palestinian fatalities were women.
* 14% of the Palestinian fatalities were killed by the Palestinians themselves, for "collaborating" with the enemy.
* 5% of the Palestinian fatalities victims were non-combattants over the age of 39.
