Inside Arabia is an online news analysis magazine providing in-depth news and analysis of the Middle East and North Africa.
In an era of “fake news,” “alternative facts,” and misinformation, the founder of Inside Arabia recognized that there was a profound lack of accurate coverage of the Middle East and North Africa, in English, for US audiences, contributing to a significant misunderstanding of the region, its people, and its issues. Jordanian-American Founder and CEO Saeb Sakkijha decided to launch a new publication to help Americans understand the events happening in the MENA region. And so, in 2018, Inside Arabia was born.
Inside Arabia is poised to become the leading source of analysis about the MENA region and a reference resource for researchers as well as non-experts who want to understand the past, present, and future of the region. By getting inside the Arab mind, we provide in-depth analysis of this important and dynamically changing region.
Our vision is to build bridges of understanding between Arabs and Americans to promote peace and tolerance.
Our mission is to educate and inform the American public by dispelling myths, counteracting stereotypes, denouncing human rights abuses, and championing the basic human values of love, peace, compassion and kindness.
Since we launched our website on July 13, 2018, our team has been growing. It includes Americans, Arab-Americans, Arabs, and other experts with deep experience and/or roots in the MENA region. We are knowledgeable about its history, language, culture, and customs. We give a voice to its people by going to the source. A growing contributor pool of talented academics, analysts, and members of think tanks and other organizations adds depth and breadth to our publication through their experience and expertise.
