Good Neighbors

My Israeli friend Yael has created a group blog unlike any other I know of. It’s a Middle Eastern blog called Good Neighbors where both Arabs and Israelis contribute.
So far she has signed up herself (obviously) and Tif from Israel, Big Pharoah from Egypt, Free Cedar from Lebanon, Drima from Sudan, Shiffa from Jordan, Ramzi S from Palestine, and Yaser from Syria.
This is a place for people who want to opt out of the destructive “narrative” that convulses the region and do something more civilized and productive instead.
The Middle East desperately needs a satellite TV station with a similar mission that can compete with Al Jazeera, etc. Cyprus might be a good neutral nearby location where something like that could be launched. In the meantime, Good Neighbors is one of the first and few options available.
