I've been trying to come back and continue blogging about the Middle East, but honestly, my heart just isn't in it anymore.  For the most part, I'm only listing the Top Stories every Monday.  If that's all I'm going to do, then there's no reason to continue this blog.  I sincerely hope that one day I'll be able to return and make a contribution to blogging about the Middle East.  Until that time, thank you for reading my blog.  One day I will return, insha'allah.
