It appears that my first winter related “injury” in Canada is something I hadn’t quite expected - terribly dry lips that physically hurt because apparently the air gets really dry in winter? That really ought to be part of the orientation manuals 😂

4 days ago, I wrote to re its role in amplifying ’ harassment campaign against me. I cited Neil’s tweets. This isn’t just sexist & unfunny. & it doesn’t just reveal wider failure to report the story. It betrays the British public. Who are not being told the truth

The Arab Spring didn’t cause the miseries, the regimes who hated it and disdained a people’s cry for dignity and freedom were the ones who inflicted untold misiries, backed by the state tools of violence. I hope you’re still not puzzled.

I have disagreed with Abou El Fadl's writing before, but his piece here on how Riyadh is instrumentalising religion is spot on. Courtesy of the New York Times.

This piece is spot on. Sudais using the pulpit of the Grand Mosque to defend the monarchy, and not only that but to compare MbS to Caliph Omar by dubbing him a “muhaddath” is outrageous and hypocritical: Saudi Arabia Is Misusing Mecca
