Links for the period 23 May - 1 June

I admit I copied this idea  from blogger Arabist: links for articles that one could recommend, but in some cases for reasons of time and place didn´t find their way to the blog. Here are my links for the period 23 May 1 June:

The New York Times reveals that it was not only the Israelis that executed cyberattacks on Iran. It was a combined American-Israeli project and maybe still is.  

 Nobel laureate Paul Krugman argues in an interview with German magazine Der Spiegel (for the Xth time) against the EU´s obsession with austerity and warns that the euro risks to fall apart:
´If there was a European government, I'd be arguing for stimulus from that European government. But Europe has a special problem, which is the single currency without the single government.´

Portrait of  28-year old filmmaker Bassel Shehade who left a Fullbright scholarship in the US for Syria, where he met his death while covering the events in Homs.

Gideon Levy of Haaretz´ outburst  against the riots against black fugitives in southern Tel Aviv: ´Israel is the most naive and racist country in the West ´

And yes, finally somebody states the obvious about thes drone attacks. The Washington Post: In Yemen, U.S. airstrikes breed anger, and sympathy for al-Qaeda
