Interactive Network Maps of Mideast National Relationships Social network analyst Valdis Krebs has put together a pair of interactive network models visualizing the relationships between all the nations & non-nation actors involved in the Mideast crisis. And after you get bored of playing "drag the countries around", check out a few of the other models & maps he's made available. (via)

Looks like Lebanon is the most popular kid on the block. Al Qaida is always in a lonely corner.

Nobody likes Al quada. Except hamas, but they're a little embarassed, I guess.

Heh, pin Al Quada on one side, then the USA on another, then drag Israel over to AQ and watch everyone freak out :P
