Nominations - Best Middle East or Africa Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Middle East or Africa Blog.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):
Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://wizbangblog.com/index.xml

I know it's new but could be an underdog. Trying to capture all the information on Iraqi Kurdistan on one blog. A daunting venture indeed.

Doug Traversa, USAF, in Afghanistan

This blog is the best. It's like being in those mountains in Afghanistan and seeing it all through the eyes of the blogger. You can feel the dust, wind, rain, the coldness of those barren mountains. You feel like your traveling with the soldiers on those dangerous winding roads waiting for the unexpected to happen. There is humor, sadness and anticipation of what the blogger is going through and you live through it with him. A great blog and a must read....
