The Arabic-speaking media

Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

Submitted by Gabriel Grosso (Italy), Feb 9, 2006 at 02:33

Apparently, 90% of the people who rioted against the Danish cartoons have not seen them. They have been told that those cartoons were offensive and they didn't look into it. I know that depicting the Prophet would be seen as offensive per se. But still, those protesters have been inspired by media assets such as Al-Jazeera.

It is time for the CNN or SKY to broadcast in Arabic and Farsi. Do they already have such transations for their programs? Do you, Mr. Pipes, translate your work into Arabic? Because that might be the solution. Alternative sources of information need to be provided for Arabic-speakers. ... A counter-information campaign is needed.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, I do have my articles translated into Arabic - see http://www.danielpipes.org/languages/12 - and hope this will be done on a more regular basis in the future.
