Middle East International Re-Launches

MEIvol2iss1_cov_cartoonThe fortnightly Middle East International has just been re-launched, under the stewardship of some very able editors and advisors. Some of you may recall the highly-regarded magazine during its first run from the early 1970’s up until 2005. Well, it’s back, and I have to say that it looks very good.

The first issue is available for free download on the website. Beginning next week, you’ll have to pay for a subscription. I wager that it will be well worth it, judging from the quality of the contributions. (There are pieces by several very smart journalists and analysts, including Jim Muir, Omayma Abdel-Latif, Graham Usher, Nick Blanford, Abigail Fielding-Smith, and others.)

Back to the cabinet issue…

There is still no news on the Kata’eb’s decision to resign from the cabinet; it looks like they’re weighing their options.

Otherwise, check out a list of all the new ministers’ CVs (in Arabic), courtesy of the good folks in the Orange Room.

  1. Thanks for the CVs Qifa.

    I’ll mention one minor funny mistake. In the personal section for Ziad Baroud, it is said that his daughter’s name is Elsa-Mathematics and his mother is a professor of Carole.

    I’m taking a wild guess here and saying that his daughter’s name should be Elsa-Carole and his mother is a professor of Math.

    Cheers 🙂

    Abu Elsa-Mathematics is one heck of an Interior Minister, I’ll say that.
