I have a massive amount of material from my recent trips to Iraq and Lebanon to write up, but the war in Gaza is sucking up my time and attention. It’s the biggest story by far in the Middle East right now, and nothing I have from the other countries is time-sensitive. I hope you don’t mind if I stick with this a little bit longer before I return to my usual beat. I have a few more analysis pieces I need to write, one of which will contrast the 2009 war against Hamas in Gaza with the 2006 war against Hezbollah in Lebanon.
I doubt this conflict will last very much longer, and I’ll get to the other material as soon as it winds down. If it does last a lot longer (and I really hope that it doesn’t), I will get to work on my Lebanon and Iraq material anyway.
