Egypt is still on fire while Palestinians remember Al Nakbeh with imagining what they’ll do once Palestine is free. Foreign Policy brings together a number of blogs from the middle east that it thinks are worth reading, even by Obama himself.
“I do not know from where to start but from two hours ago not less 500 thugs "according to eye witnesses" suddenly attacked the strike of Egyptian Christians at the ERTV building Maspero.
According to Reuters 2 protesters were killed and to Egyptian sources not less than 60 were injured including 2 in a very critical condition while 10 cars were set on fire and 50 were arrested”.
“When I Return” is an online participatory campaign that features simple notes by Palestinians, Arabs and allies describing what they hope to do when Palestine is free and/or they return to Palestine. This project asks you to — for a moment — take liberation for granted. Think instead of your first day in Palestine after its liberation. What will you do? Where will you go? What will you be dreaming of next?”.
“Well, Mr. President, we have some late-night reading suggestions for you. There's an entire community of Middle East bloggers who obsessively follow and comment on developments in their countries, and throughout the region".
Foreign Policy suggests blogs from the middle east that it thinks President Obama himself should be checking out.
