What Others Say

On August 1, Carmia joined a blog on BBC Arabic that includes two Lebanese and one other Israeli (Lisa Goldman, author of the superb Tel Aviv-based Ontheface blog). The blog, initiated by Egyptian BBC journalist Mustafa Menshawy, is a laudable attempt to bring more nuanced pictures of the conflict to Arab audiences. The participants post on a daily basis and their contributions are then translated into Arabic. http://kishkushim.blogspot.com/2006_07_01_archive.html

BBC Arabic Interviews DoctorZin

Mustafa Menshawy, BBC Arabic.com:

The BBC published a panel of webloggers representing a variety of Middle East countries. They interviewed each of us. They include: Egypt, Jordan, Iraq (our friends at Iraq the Model), Iraqi blog in Britain, Palestine, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and an Iran blog in the US. Our site represented Iran. I was told that the interview is good, but since it was published in Arabic, I would appreciate it if one of our readers could translate the interview for us. You may send a translation to me here. http://regimechangeiniran.com/2006/07/bbc-arabic-interviews-doctorzi/
