Special reports on Israel

The Economist has a special report on Israel on the occasion of its 60th year. I’ve been skipping through the various sections of it, and so far it seems fairly interesting, although nowhere near as interesting as Le Monde Diplo’s Manière de voir on the subject: “Histoires d’Israël.” The latter is put together by Dominique Vidal and includes articles by Edward Said, Avraham Burg, Tom Segev, Samir Kassir, Shimon Peres, Alain Gresh, Amira Hass, and the list goes on.

I’ll be reading the Economist report online and the Manière de voir in print – both, I’ll add, at home, because while I’m sometimes fond of creating a stink, I’m not sure I’ve got the balls to bring a blue and white magazine with Israel printed on the front cover to my local café.
