: We keep hearing about the radically different Arab perspective being broadcast on Arab TV but, of course, we don’t get to see that for ourselves.
In the English-language Arab press, there are occasional glimpses of that perspective. Take this from the Jordan Times:
Eyes fixed upon the images of the Iraq war flickering across the television, Musa Tawil (Abu Hamed), 58, from Hitteen refugee camp said he would rather be oppressed by harsh leadership than accept the will of an invading foreign force.
For the embittered Abu Hamed, displaced from his home in Palestine in the wake of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, the current aggression against Iraq is part of a pattern of aggression he knows only too well.
