Middle East News

In my previous post, Current News: Palestine & Israel, I listed several sources for news related to the Middle East. Let me add a few additional links. The Truth Laid Bear has set up a Crisis in the Middle East: Local Bloggers Report page with links to local Palestinian, Lebanese, and Israeli blogs, as well as other blogs covering the crisis. Also check out their link to Middle East Crisis: Israel, Hamas, Hezbollah. A brief description of Hamas, Hizballah (Hezbollah), and other Islamic militant groups is shown in the U.S. State Department's Background Information on Foreign Terrorist Organizations. The article, "Who are Hezbollah?" appears on BBC News: Middle East. The Hamas Charter is available for reading on the Palestine Center website.
For Lebanese perspectives, you can read The Daily Star, an English language newspaper online, and articles from the Lebanese Foundation for Peace.

Current news on Iran is available on the Iran News Blog. Also, check out Iran News Watch for updates.
