In The Orientalist I try to give an overview of the most interesting developments in the Middle East and its region. The Orientalist can be used as a filter-website where you will find a selection of articles and documentaries from professional news websites as well as opinion pieces on some of these events. My goal is to provide a news feed on the Middle East that is informative and educational to the readers and to offer a place where discussion on these subjects can take place.
It is my love for the Middle East that has led me to write this blog. I do not pretend to be an expert on all the subjects that are posted. But I hope that with this blog as a medium I can develop my own knowledge as well as that of others about this magnificent but often troubled region.
Thanks for visiting,
