Links September 9th to September 11th
Links from my del.icio.us account for September 9th through September 11th:
- Arab Reform Bulletin - Carnegie Endowment for International Peace - The Arab Reform Bulletin's swanky revamped website, great resource
- Egypt (Foreign Policy Blogs) - Foreign policy blogs, collection of US foreign policy-centered blogs, recently started an Egypt blog with some good contributions from Cairo-based researcher Matthew Axelrod and Daily Star reporter Nathan Field
- Egypt rockslide highlights rich and poor divide - The National Newspaper - Good follow-up on Muqattam disaster by Nadial Aboul Magd. Today some papers are asking why Mubarak hasn't visited the site yet...
- Daily News Egypt - MP DEMANDS INVESTIGATION INTO ‘EXCESSIVE’ GAMAL MUBARAK MEDIA COVERAGE - Recently Gamal Mubarak has been on various tours of poor areas to highlight his interest on social issues. These have been amply covered by the media, and this MB MP thinks too much so. He may have a point when it comes to the state media, but then again all Egyptian media, whether or not they like Gamal, would report if Gamal went to the toilet. I suspect if it was just announced that Gamal will be prez, many Egyptians will just feel relieved that the matter is officially settled (of course many would also be pretty pissed off.)
- Egypt kills 2 Sudanese trying to cross into Israel | Middle East | Jerusalem Post - The slow trickle of refugees shot s they try to sneak from Egypt into Israel continues
