Reviews of the وطن من كلمات

I've read the above book when it came out in 2009, written by the acclaimed journalist Mr. Abdel Bari Atwan, Founder & Editor in-Chief of "al-Quds al Arabi", a London-based Arabic daily newspaper, a memoir that represents an autobiography of his life, molded into a very interesting list of events that affected and still affecting the shape of the Arab world now, and extraordinary encounters that had an impact on his career including Osama Bin Laden in Tora Bora, Margaret Thatcher, Colonel Gaddafi, King Abdullah & sincere meetings with Yasser Arafat . Abdel Bari Atwan started his when he was only 18 journey moving within the Arab world, among Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia & Libya, for education then for a living, such as most of the Palestinians, a sad truth that he embodies in describing how he went hiding at the graduation ceremony from his colleagues because he didn't have a mailing address to exchange with them as he didn't know where is he going next! A few startling anecdotes in his life that eventually ended up with him working for "Alsharq Al Awsat", a Saudi Arabian funded newspaper in London office, until when, after a day of the first intifada on which many Palestinians had been killed, the paper ran a football story as front-page news instead of pictures of Israeli atrocities.
