Site News: Updated PagesI've updated the Web site for my book, "Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam," which can now be found at http://jihadjoebook.com/. The new site has been cleaned up a bit, and I've added some early praise for the book, which will be updated with new material between now and the release.
Separately, I'm trying out a new format for the Intelwire Daily Brief, which is now being powered by Scoop.it. The tradeoff here is that the old version, which used paper.li, automatically updated from tagged stories on my Twitter feed.
The new page lets me customize headlines and promote stories so that the lead story is always what I think is most important, as opposed to the old page which prioritized stories automatically.
The downside is that it will be more difficult for me to keep the new page updated when traveling or otherwise busy, so we'll see how it goes. For now, at least, I'm trying to keep it updated throughout the day, given how much is going on in the news. Later, I'll probably settle on fairly predictable morning and evening editions.
I know the old page appealed to many folks, so it will continue, and you can click here to read it or follow it. It's now set to publish twice a day, so the news will be fresher. Since it's automatically generated, I don't see any downside in keeping it up and running indefinitely. I suspect the new page will ultimately work out for the best, but I'll let you know how I like it after a few weeks.
Views expressed on INTELWIRE are those of the author alone.

"...smart, granular analysis..."ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"...a timely warning..."Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
