Mideastwire blogs, Onemideast debates

Some interesting new developments have come to the webworld.

Nicholas Noe, an American academic and analyst based in Beirut, has for years now been running a subscription service called Mideastwire, translating articles from the Arabic press into English on a daily basis. Recently, he has started posting highlights and quotes from these translations on an informative blog, which you can find here.

Rather more surprisingly, a group of Syrian and Israeli ‘bloggers, academics, political analysts, journalists, and businesspeople’ have been debating how peace could be achieved between their respective countries, and have drawn up a list of what both sides consider to be the main obstacles to peace. Their website further aims to offer an ‘online discussion arena intended for raising and debating ideas central to the Arab-Israeli peace process’. Onemideast.org can be found here.
