The new issue of the Middle East Report is out, and judging from the table of contents it looks packed with interesting stuff. Too bad you can't read it all online, so I guess I'll have to be contented with articles like Jim Lobe's take on the Bush Team Reloaded.
The Washington Monthly, a Democrat-centrist political magazine, has a special issue on Middle East Democracy and running blog commentary from a number of prominent bloggers. Shame it doesn't include Arab experts or bloggers, but an interesting look at the American take on things.
Finally, an AFP article carried by the Daily Star looks at the two women terrorists involved in last week's Cairo attack. I point to it because I found the violence of that particular incident particularly disturbing.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
