A farewell to Al Akhbar and Assad's apologists
This is my last post for Al Akhbar English. I explain why here.
Editor's Note: Al-Akhbar would like to thank Max Blumenthal for his contributions to Al-Akhbar English. His point of view on many topics of contention, in the US and the region, enriched an ongoing debate that needs the energy and creativity of people like Max in order to find solutions that bring diverging points of view closer together to pave the way out of what may seem like an inescapable rut.
Al-Akhbar will continue to be “one of the most courageous publications” in the changing Arab world. It will not shy away from controversy or from admitting mistakes of which there were some. It is in this spirit that Al-Akhbar will remain an open and free forum for anyone willing to challenge the dominance of mainstream media and introduce much needed new ideas into public discourse in the Arab world and beyond.
