Our apolgies for the light blogging thus far today. We've been busy putting out fires most of the day and Vital had to fall to the backburner for a few hours. However, we did manage to get the latest edition of The Reading Room together for you. Click here to read all the Middle East articles in the top periodicals from June 13 to July 7. There's several interesting articles on the Israeli - Palestinian conflict and Iraq. The most interesting to us were the National Review symposiums and a roundtable discussion in Foreign Affairs.
