Quick one (I unfortunately will have less and less free time from now on, honestly don’t know how I’ll keep up with Arabic and this blog since I’m struggling already)-
I randomly found a new source of MiddleEast-related news with opinions that I think seems interesting and trustworthy, so I wanted to share this.
The ‘source’ is also a fairly inspirational person, from what I’ve been able to learn so far: her name is Lyse Doucet and she’s the chief international correspondent for the BBC, and quite an experienced one it would seem! She’s British-Canadian and she looks like this:
Her most recent articles (I’m looking at this page here) are titled
- Is Saudi Arabia on the cusp of change?
- Syria peace talks: armed groups come in from the cold
- Aleppo siege: “We are crying and afraid”
- Can dealmaker Trump seal Middle East peace?
- Why is Russia engaged in Aleppo?
- New UN chief Antonio Guterres will listen to the world
- ‘New Canadians‘ settle in as refugee acceptances slow
- Two men from Baghdad – the artist and the entrepreneur
In principle, I’d now like to read ALL of them. In practice, she seems to publish something new about once or twice a month, which is great because it means I should be able to read her pieces regularly from now on. In any case, thank you Lyse 🙂
