Quoted @NYTBen

The more I think about Bashar al-Assad getting Covid, the more surprised I am that Russia - which invested hugely to keep him in power - didn't give him a vaccine. 💉

Maybe he was holding out for Pfizer. 🤔

Quoted @NYTBen

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria and his wife, Asma, have Covid-19. State media says they are stable and will quarantine at home for two or three weeks.

Syria is suffering from a grave financial crisis that Mr. al-Assad seems to have no way out of.

I am reading and appreciating (hard to say enjoying, given the topic) Joby Warrick's new book 'Red Line' about Syria and chemical weapons.

Nice to be reminded of the word azimuth, a much neglected piece of the lexicon.

A new attempt to hold Bashar al-Assad and his government accountable for war crimes, this time over their use of chemical weapons.

3) "I didn't get paid as an intern" shouldn't give you a pass
4) "we didn't pay interns at the magazine" shouldn't give you a pass

Hello! I'm looking for a researcher/journalist to help with a study of post-9/11 detention of Muslims in the U.S. -- preferably someone who speaks Arabic and/or Urdu. Paid position, excellent opportunity for aspiring journalists. Please DM if interested, and please share. Thanks!

I had forgotten how lovely it is to hang out socially with Saudis. Same mannerisms in real life as Clubhouse. Someone expresses humbleness on entry and it’s followed by “may Allah protect and preserve you and bless you and send you to Paradise”

Mr. Potato Head is no longer a mister. Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year.
