Talking with skp last night, I realized that I don't know enough about the Middle East or its culture to make informed opinions. I'm trying to remedy that. After a long search through books about the region, I ordered three with different views: I have no idea if the books are any good. Also, Jason pointed to a Journalist's Guide to Arab Americans that has some good basic information.

Craig sent a link to Thomas L. Friedman's latest column. Titled, no less, World War III.

The only one of the three I've read is From Beirut to Jerusalem, which is excellent. I remember also the epigram at the front of the book from Huckleberry Finn explaining The Feud -- it perfectly summarizes the Why of the perpetual warfare there.
