While 3way Fight has been rather inactive, the world dosent stop burning. Hoping to put some fresh material up soon. Until then, readers of this site should check out
The Angry Arab News Service/وكالة أنباء العربي الغاضب
A source on politics, war, the Middle East, Arabic poetry, and art.
The site has short posts with lots of reader comments following. As'ad Abukhalil, the sites designer, raises important questions concering whose interests are at play in the Middle East, asserting that Isreal never acts on it's own but is an enforcer for US policy. He also raises the questions of what does the future of Middle East resistance look like with the rise in Right-wing yet mass populist Islamic movements.

People should also look at Juan Cole's Informed Comment which has continues updates on the Middle East with emphasis on Iraq.

And from another perspective people should read Pat Buchanan's articles from his site The American Cause. Pat represents the populist and conservative anti-Bush/anti-neo con perspective. Pat also represents the trend of conservatism that has provided space for many neo-fascists to manuver around in. We have touched on this before.

Here is a piece from Pat,

No, this is not 'our war'

My country has been "torn to shreds," said Fouad Siniora, the prime minister of Lebanon, as the death toll among his people passed 300 civilian dead, 1,000 wounded, with half a million homeless.

Israel must pay for the "barbaric destruction," said Siniora.

To the contrary, says columnist Lawrence Kudlow, "Israel is doing the Lord's work."
On American TV, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu says the ruination of Lebanon is Hezbollah's doing. But is it Hezbollah that is using U.S.-built F-16s, with precision-guided bombs, and 155-mm artillery pieces to wreak death and devastation on Lebanon?

No, Israel is doing this, with the blessing and without a peep of protest from President Bush. And we wonder why they hate us.
