Venezuela in Al Akhbar

The Venezuelan referendum – in my words, as translated and published in Al Akhbar

As much as I love the paper, allow me a few gripes: (1) my name in arabic is spelled with a ‘ta marbouta’ and not an ‘alef’; and (2) I so wished they had asked me for pictures, since I have dozens to share; and (3) I wish they had posted this blog ;-); and (4) I wish that they had listed me as a prof at the UOB. But alas, it is good to get the word out – and to have it announced, again, that socialism and democracy can go together 😉
