Following with continuing interest South Korea's expanding footprint in the Middle East, and the relevance of its views on the Iranian nuclear framework agreement to the ongoing discussion.

America Abroad is an excellent monthly foreign affairs documentary on Public Radio International. Not long ago I had the opportunity to report a segment about the history of American diplomacy on the Iranian nuclear program. Thought I'd share it today in light of new developments on the subject.

It's been a pleasure and an honor to contribute a biweekly column in Arabic to Al-Majalla. The magazine has been growing rapidly: Long the largest-distribution glossy in the Arabic language, its English online edition has expanded thanks to the hard work of Manuel Almeida -- and more recently, a new Farsi edition has been added, offering a corrective to propaganda in the language advanced by the Tehran government and the publications it controls.

I've been following a torrent of daily Tweets from Egypt's Interior ministry which assert having broken up terrorist plots in the country's big cities. The account has 233,000 followers, and the Ministry's Facebook page has 1.7 million. A Western reporter should look into how many of these Tweets are true. Such an inquiry might challenge the prevailing view that the army is simply cracking down on peaceful dissent -- but challenging groupthink is what journalists are supposed to do, right?@moiegy.

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, here's an episode of my podcast, Eye on Arabia, called "Arabs Remember the Holocaust." It tells the story of a remarkable young man who has been struggling against Holocaust denial in North Africa. https://soundcloud.com/eye-on-arabia/arabs-remember-the-holocaust

Here's how Beijing uses Arabic-language media to tweak the cultural fabric of North Africa and the Middle East in favor of Chinese interests. 
China’s Arabic-language television and radio outreach efforts don’t compare to America’s in traditional measures like audience size. But sometimes how many people are tuning in isn’t as important as who is tuning in.

Last year I had the opportunity to speak with former Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama White House officials about the history of efforts at diplomacy with the Iranian regime....

Jihan Noujaim's Oscar-nominated film, "The Square," documents three years of Egyptian protests admirably, with some minor faults. (For example, the subtitles whitewash massive cries of "Down with the AGENT" -- a word with an insidious history of slandering proponents of peace with Israel.) Though on the whole an appealing and well-done film, it misses the arc of the story. Its thesis -- that even with Sisi's rise to power, Egyptian politics have changed forever since Tahrir -- does not grapple with the resounding calls for a restoration of military rule. I'd like to see a filmmaker ask how a nation can come together in demanding one thing, then come together in demanding its opposite, in the historical blink of an eye.

Some new professional associations I'm proud to share -- at the Al-Mesbar Center for Research and Studies as well as two American think tanks.
