Apologies for slow blogging here these days (you're probably grateful actually). Here are some quick links.
Post of the week: Sarah Correia: Sarajevo from Ramazan to Bajram
The Normblog profile of my friend Michael Ezra. Dodgy opinions on political heroes and TV, and I'd hate to be at that dinner party! // Terry Glavin: Warsaw Ghetto, January 1943. Homs, Syria, August 2011: "NATO must help us." // IWCA analysis of the riots: The lumpen rebellion (trenchant and incisive, but in my view flawed).
Iz/Pal-ish: Marko AH: Why we should support Palestinian statehood. // An open letter to Israel boycotters (via Green Gordon/Weggis). // Noam Edry: Zionist art at wadical Goldsmiths.
On the English Defence League: Some analysis from the AWL: A ban will do no good; Anti-fascists fall out in Norwich; Working class self-organisation can beat the EDL in Tower Hamlets. // Dishing the dirt at Malatesta. // Hope not Hate on the guns of the EDL: chilling.
