New Issue of Mideast Monitor

The latest issue of Mideast Monitor is out.

I have two articles in this issue. One is a long article on the Syrian opposition. The first of its kind as far as I'm aware.

The other is a shorter article on Bashar Assad's media attacks against the Saudis -- a throwback to the radical Salah Jadid's days -- and other Sunni Arab states (aka "the Arab fold"!). The article samples some of the Syrian propaganda through Bashar's outlets, Cham Press and Syria News.
