Change of heart, changing course..
I have found myself very emotionally involved with the whole Middle East conflict. I also have found myself reading different perspectives and commentaries and even some blogs I had not yet visited. So today I came to the conclusion that I really do not feel qualified to give any opinion on the situation, other than from what's going on on the American end of things. I need to be at peace and I cannot contribute otherwise.So I had to re-group and change course.
There are blogs and commenters from the region who are engaging in intense, and personal discussions that are much more worthwhile reading than what any outsider has to say about it. This is not to denouncy my blogger friends who do, I just don't feel that I should anymore. I have a lot of material to read, online and off. This is such a multi-faceted situation, even if it is understood that I am only writing my own opinions, it is still a waste of time.
From now on, when referring to the situation in the Middle East, I will give links of articles and/or posts to read. Let's educate ourselves instead of jumping on anyone's bandwagon with (our)pre-conceived opinions.
MAHMOUD'S DEN! I have often referred people to his site and now he finds himself with many commenters from the region including Israel who are engaging in some very intersting discussions. Please check out his site every day if you can, I do.
A new site I had stumbled upon a while back but not checked back with is;
THE RANTINGS OF A SANDMONKEY
and one more;
Jonathan's INTELLECT OR INSANITY, which is an Israeli site in english.
If the situation were different, I'd say, happy reading!
