For many years I was the only Green Arab Foodie blogger, until Rami Zurayk, professor of agriculture at the American University of Beirut, started Land and People. This is now the premier blog for food and social justice issues, covering the whole world, not just the Arabs.
Read Raj Patel's Stuffed and Starved for more on food and justice.
Middle East and politics blogs I read daily: Juan Cole's Informed Comment
Josh Landis' Syria Comment
Philip Weiss' Mondoweiss
As'ad Abu-Khalil's Angry Arab
Colonel Patrick Lang's Sic Semper Tyrannis
Professor Brad DeLong for economics and politics.
Paul Krugman. You can't go wrong with the Nobel prize-winner who told me to get a fixed rate mortgage in 2003.
Jack and Jill Politics for the bourgeois black American view. Since I'm a bourgeois Arab-American who grew up around bourgeois African-Americans, I make no apologies for subscribing to unapologetic bourgeois AA perspectives.Daily Kos. Can't help it, I do read it.
Check in with Tony Karon's Rootless Cosmopolitan when you can. He doesn't update that often.
Richard Silverstein's Tikun Olam
For food, with special mention for subliminal leftist politics, Mark Bittman of the New York Times.
Then there are the literary and foodie bloggers. Lots more women there...
