INTELWIRE shortlisted for Defence IQ blogging awardsJust a quick note of thanks to Defence IQ for picking INTELWIRE for its shortlist of nominees as best counterterrorism blog. The other nominees in this and related categories are among the cream of the crop in this field and Twitter friends such as Leah Farrall, Natalie Sambhi and N.R. Jenzen-Jones, and the teams at Registan, Ink Spots and Gunpowder and Lead, all excellent resources. Also listed was The Freedom Fighter Blog, which is a new one to me. With a field like this, it's not the usual formality to say it's an honor just to be nominated. It really is. Thanks!
Nobody can follow everybody, but there are some notable omissions on the list, led by Jihadology, Jihadica and Views from the Occident, and including Selected Wisdom, Zenpundit, Waq Al-Waq and the Long War Journal.
Check out J.M. Berger's new book, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam, on sale everywhere.

ISIS: THE STATE
Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger co-author the forthcoming book, "ISIS: The State of Terror," from Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins. The book, which will debut in early 2015, will examine the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, its potential fall, how it is transforming the nature of extremist movements, and how we should evaluate the threat it presents. Jessica Stern is a Harvard lecturer on terrorism and the author of the seminal text Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill. J.M. Berger is author of the definitive book on American jihadists, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam, a frequent contributor to Foreign Policy, and editor of Intelwire.com.
