I am busy, so no regular posts today. However, here is some stuff I am reading:
- A New York Times article about the Lackawanna Six, the Yemeni-Americans in Buffalo who trained at an Al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan.
- An interesting article about the history of the oath of allegiance that naturalized citizens have to take.
- Patrick Belton has written before on his blog about the Arab/Muslim-American community in Dearborn, Michigan (see my post about it). He now has published an article about it and plans to turn it into a book.
- Juan Cole, a Professor of History, is an expert on the Middle East. He has an article in the Boston Review about the recent history of Iraqi Shiites. It’s a must-read for everyone. Juan’s blog is also full of great content and I would read it regularly if the formatting was somewhat better.
- I have finished reading Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World by Margaret MacMillan. I’ll write a review in the next few days.
