War Updates in the J-Blogosphere

There is a great resource for updates on the war at the Jblogosphere blog. You can find it here. Or read below.

As the war around Israel rages… here is a list of many of the Israeli and other J-bloggers who are “live-blogging” the war, in alphabetical order (some are bigger on updates, some on commentary, so be sure to look at a number of them)…

Please e-mail serandez at verizon dot net or any of the other members of this blog with other blogs that are live-blogging. Thank you. We will try to update as we are able.

    Thanks for the links. I am inding the news is far better from the bloggers “on the ground,” so to speak.

    Thanks for the link. PT also posted this, and ironically got the same type of feedback, and he replied the same as you. I guess great minds think alike (ok, I earn brownie points for that ass-kissing, oh forget the points, just send me the brownies.) : )

    Jack- Cool & thanks. We are in a semi- frantic state right now over the whereabouts of a friend. Not really interested in promoting one over the other, just a general concern for human safety of ALL those in danger. Also I didn’t read over the entire blog didn’t notice it was Pro-Israel or anti something, and so on. Not out to offend.

    Leaf- thanks for the reference to Sandmonkey.

    I am not here to represent the Lebanese interests. I am here for the Jewish/Israeli side.

    While I certainly wish and hope for the best for the Lebanese they are not my first concern.

    I am not a news source. I am just one person blogging and as such I don’t have to provide any more balance.

    But if you want to leave some links in the comments you are welcome to do so.

    As long as they do not violate my standards I’l let them stay.

    Jack, these links are helpful to me. If Mitch wants Lebanese resources he just needs to look for them. Maybe check out Sandmonkey or Lebanese bloggers. I hope you dont mind me posting links to some of these on my blog.

    The listed sites do not discuss happenings in Lebanon. Seems rather biased or imbalanced. I have a friend in southern Lebanon currently. I’m certain there are other Americans that are not only concerned for family or friends in this region, but also about regular citizens.
    A less biased approach would be more helpful.

    Well Mitch, what would be helpful?

    These links are not really helpful.
