Regional Recap

Two of the best blogs for Egyptian and Arab world analysis are run by Issandr el-Amrani, called The Arabist, and Nervana Mahmoud, called Nervana.  One of their regular services is to provide an update of links to other articles and reports from the internet, which they have allowed me to re-post here. And without a blog, Paul Attallah does similarly, integrating his own analysis. The links and commentary are, of course, their own.

Please enjoy. From Nervana:
