Links 14-16 November 2010

Over the last couple of days I experimented with some new ways to link, and launched our own short link url (arb.st) for use on Twitter. This meant that some recent links don't appear here — so remember, do look at the sidebar or follow Arabist on Twitter for a lot more links, retweets and commentary than appear on this site (at least until I find a way to integrate it all.)
