C-SPAN's Middle East Treasure Trove

In recent days, I’ve spent way too much time geeking out on C-SPAN’s video library, which was recently put online in its entirety.

The virtual library, home to 160,000 hours of video, is a treasure trove — not to mention a great procrastination vehicle — for political junkies of all stripes. And there’s plenty for those who closely follow the matzav in the Middle East, from Yitzhak Rabin’s poignant “Enough Blood and Tears” speech to the announcement of George W. Bush’s yet-unfruitful “Roadmap to Peace.” The library also contains speeches and readings from prominent Israeli journalists, novelists and academics — David Grossman, Amos Oz and Benny Morris, among them.
