The main reason behind creating ‘the picture of the Middle East’ is very simple, for better understanding of the Islamic World.
That is why I will try to focus on similarities between East and West rather than differences, on positives rather than negatives. Writing about things which cannot be found on the front pages, commenting current affairs and explaining complicated issues. I will try to show the Middle East in the way I see and understand it. As a place of many extremes, diversity, beauty, controversy and wisdom, which is also funny, unpredictable and wild. As a place which absolutely fascinates me.
