I returned this evening from the wild mountainous hinterlands of Virginia, and was hoping to put up some actual posts before I collapsed into bed for a well-deserved forty winks. But I was defeated by the backlog of email — do y’all realize how much email you can send me in just two short days? It boggles the mind.
Anyway, I was able to collect a more or less normal news feed. The most important story is that after decades of internecine warfare, Hamas and Fatah have now reconciled, and have cut a deal to work together against the common Zionist enemy.
Also, check out the latest on Syria — the deadly repression there is continuing, but Sen. John McCain, among others, says that Syria is not like Libya, and the regime’s actions do not warrant NATO intervention.
