New links

I've finally managed to categorize my links section which should make it easier for people to identify the kind of sites they are looking for. First come the links on Orthodox Christianity. The soul comes first after all. There's a newly added link, The American Journal of Russian and Slavic studies, which is run by a priest. Some of his commentary on modern-day political and social issues is first class. His writing is of the highest quality.
After the news sites and recommended forum's come all the Serbian blogs and sites. The only new addition is Goran Davidovic's blog, the leader of Nacionalni Stroj (National File). He became infamous overnight when members of his group broke up a lecture being given at Novi Sad University last year. I can't remember what the topic was. Either 'human rights' or cooperation with the Hague. The government then launched a crack down, arresting numerous members in spectacular commando style raids as if they were targetting a terrorist group. Anyway he seems to be organising a march for Serbian Unity next Sunday in Novi Sad (Northern Serbia). Nenad Canak, the leader of a seperatist party has called on his supporters to physically attack the participants. He was supposed to go head to head in a debate with Goran on Fox TV, but someone (take your pick starting from Nenad Canak himself, the government, an NGO) exerted pressure on the TV station and it never went ahead. We'll see what happens this Sunday.
Immediately after the Serbian sites are our Greek brothers. Only 2 decent Greek English-language blogs that I know of, if anyone knows of any other ones let me know and I'll add them. The same goes for Russian sites. Finally we finish with British, American, and continental European sites. Nothing new in these sections.

Old Karadzic interview

While scanning through the usual blogs I came across an old interview with Radovan Karadzic on the Serb Liberation blog. It's in 4 parts and quite long, but interesting reading.

The Exaltation of the Honorable Cross

Just a heads up to all those Orthodox who go by the Old calendar, tomorrow is a major fasting day in commemoration of the finding of the Honorable Cross: Крстовдан.
