Well this is fascinating. Just got a WhatsApp from a tribal sheikh in east worrying that the map on 's book cover omits labelling lands. These men hadn't even heard of smartphones a few years back. Says a lot about current politics of fragmentation...

While it is true that protests in & are not about geopolitics but socioeconomics, they are a total rejection of status quo. In either case status quo has guaranteed status/presence of -linked NSAs. In that respect, Tehran should be worried.

If the Arab revolutions that grew eight years ago were about removing lone dictators, the current wave is about removing an establishment that for too long has drained resources.

Next time you hear politicians or pundits disparage people in the Middle East, remember this awe-inspiring image from Beirut.

Young protesters in Hong Kong are writing “last letters” to their loved ones, in the event that they are arrested or killed. Some carry handwritten copies to the streets in their backpacks or wallets. Others hide them at home.

The very same President of the United States who has sought at every turn to make our country inhospitable to immigrants “considers himself to be in the hospitality business.” No wonder so many of his business ventures failed.

It’s important to appreciate *why* Bill Burns has earned so many gushing tributes, long before ’s crass snipe. Burns is respected because (like all the best FSOs) he listens, he reads, he doesn’t play politics. Anathema to senior leaders in current administration.

The big new BBC Arabic poll has gotten some misleading coverage. BBC is calling this the rise of the "non-religious" 👇🏾 The problem is the common Arabic translation of "not religious" would be مش متدين or لست متدين which doesn't have quite the same implication as "not religious"

Somehow the protest in Tripoli, N. morphed into a rave party, complete with a DJ 💃🏻🕺😄

Beautiful to see protestors in Lebanon also chanting in defense of refugees. Many Lebanese politicians have been calling for them to be deported back to Syria.
