Check out NFAM commentary on the potential for a Libyan insurgency, the Israeli embassy attack (Abu Muqawama’s article), and the possible war crimes by the Libyan rebels. I also had a debate on Twitter with ‘Israeli Grouch’ about the ability of the PA to build recycling plants in the West Bank without Israeli permits. I am also working on a paper due out this month about the environmental consequences of the Israeli occupation in the Jordan Valley that discusses this very issue – so keep an eye out for that.
